Getting the right amount of compensation for a traumatic brain injury requires a good lawyer, pure and simple. Only a lawyer who specializes in claims for personal injuries that affect the brain will know the remedies available to you.

Brain injury is particularly difficult to assess. For starters, it may not manifest itself immediately – unlike most injuries sustained in a vehicle accident. A specialist will be able to get a full and ongoing assessment of damage as well as extended coverage for the various treatment and rehabilitation programs you may need.

Set up an initial meeting with a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. There are various deadlines that must be met when making a claim. That first meeting with the lawyer should be free of charge. If the lawyer agrees to take on your case, it should be on a contingency fee basis. This means that payment is an agreed-upon percentage out of the proceeds of a successful settlement and that you will not be responsible for costs incurred during the claim itself.

A good personal injury lawyer will ensure that you get the proper compensation for your injuries.

A Specialist is Needed

 
Traumatic brain injury cases require a specialized lawyer. Your best bet is to find a large firm that specializes in personal injury and to retain a brain injury specialist.
 
The difficulty with brain injuries – which are often classified as "catastrophic” –  is that they don’t manifest the same way as other injuries. The damage is often not immediately evident and a great deal of assessment needs to take place before a claim can be made. A specialist can set up assessments with the appropriate health care professionals, both psychological and physiological.
 
There are guidelines in the Insurance Act for proper and fair compensation for traumatic brain injury. There is also the possibility of filing a civil suit under tort law if the party in the accident responsible for your injury can be proven to be negligent in some way. In any event, a personal injury lawyer specializing in traumatic brain injury is essential when it comes to pursuing a claim.
 

The Cost of Legal Assistance

 
And then there is the issue of the lawyer’s fee. A person who has been injured in an accident – especially one with catastrophic injuries – is very likely facing the prospect of financial hardship. Hiring a lawyer should not have to be an added stress.
 
The initial consultation with a lawyer should be free of charge. If the lawyer agrees to take on your case, it should be on a contingency fee basis, which  means that his/her payment will come as an agreed-upon percentage out of the proceeds of a successful settlement. The client should not be on the hook for costs incurred during the claim itself.
