Brain injuries are often the result of car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and other types of common accidents, many of which are caused by the negligence of others. That is, if another party has acted negligently, or with careless disregard for safety, in causing the accident that led to a traumatic brain injury, then a personal injury claim may be pursued. In all types of personal injury claims, you must prove that the other party acted negligently. In other words, your Montgomery County traumatic brain injury lawyer must prove that the other party owed you a duty of care, that the other party breached that duty of care, that the breach caused your injuries, and that you, in fact, did suffer injuries. If you can prove negligence in your case, then you may have a successful personal injury claim.

Compensation for Brain Injuries in a Personal Injury Case

In a successful personal injury claim, you may be entitled to damages related to your injuries. Available damages may include compensation for medical expenses, costs of future rehabilitation, loss of wages due to an inability to work, property damages, and other expenses related to your injuries. Estimating the total costs of your damages can be difficult. Fortunately, the Montgomery County traumatic brain injury attorneys at McMahon, McMahon & Lentz have years of experience in gathering evidence to support the total amount of your damages claim.

Proving Your Case for a Traumatic Brain Injury

Brain injuries are often difficult to diagnose, and routine tests may not always reveal the presence of a brain injury. Rather, brain injuries often show up in symptoms that only you, your loved ones, and perhaps your co-workers notice. For instance, following an accident, you may suddenly develop memory problems, trouble with concentrating or staying focused, changes in your personality, or difficulties with coordination. In such a case, it may take a sophisticated team of medical experts to prove that you have sustained a brain injury. Fortunately, your traumatic brain injury lawyer in Montgomery County has worked with many clients who have suffered similar injuries as a result of accidents. The lawyers of McMahon, McMahon & Lentz have the resources and connections to consult medical experts, and to get your injuries evaluated by the best doctors in the field.
