Brain injuries are serious and can affect you for the rest of your life. In some cases, victims may not even realize how it will impact them or their loved ones. In others, they impact victims, speech, movement, cognitive function, and nearly every other aspect of day-to-day life. Even in cases involving a ‘mild’ brain injury, the lifetime costs associated with them can be hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars. Finding a skilled brain injury attorney who is ready and willing to fight for you is crucial to helping you as you adjust to your new reality. Mickelsen Dalton made it their mission to fight against the powerful and make sure they do their best to win for the injured. Our Charleston injury attorneys can help you get the compensation that you need and deserve.
What Is My Brain Injury Case Worth?
Every case is different; however, we can help you determine the compensation you may be entitled to by looking at your evidence, including how the injury occurred and any lost wages you may have.
Other factors that affect the value of your claim include:
Pain and suffering
Medical bills, both present and future
Cost of Physical Therapy and any other rehab
Any loss of relationship stemming from injuries due to the accident
You may also be entitled to punitive damages if we can prove gross negligence played a part in your injuries. Upon looking at the information, we will determine the compensation that may be due to you. And we will fight to get you every penny you deserve.
How Do I Prove Negligence?
Unfortunately, the burden of proving negligence falls to the victim. Mickelsen Dalton can help by gathering:
Testimony of witnesses and yourself.
Expert testimony or reports about your brain injury.
Police reports and other accident reports.
Security, dashcam, cell phone, and traffic camera video.
We work with you and your witnesses to show precisely what happened to cause your injuries if video isn’t available. We will help you overturn every stone to find the evidence to help your case. We can help you, regardless of the type of way your brain injury occurred. We understand the complexity and confusion that a brain injury can cause.
