Brain Injuries - Lomax Law Firm

Unforeseen accidents may cause damage to that most vital of all organs, the brain. Once the brain has been compromised, the effects of this injury will likely linger, to some degree, for the rest of the person’s life. Motor skills, communication skills, and memory may be adversely affected. No financial settlement can ever truly make up for such profound losses, but in many cases, a settlement can help the victim deal with the complications and obstacles that are now a part of his or her life and the lives of his or her loved ones.

Selecting a brain injury lawyer is an important decision. You need someone who has superior legal training and experience in representing brain injury victims. You want someone who is familiar with the medical and rehabilitation fields as they pertain to those with traumatic brain damage. And you need a lawyer who understands the lifetime consequences that go along with brain injury. The accident lawyer you choose should be someone who treats clients with compassion and respect.

Brain Injury—How the Right Lawyer Can Help

A competent and qualified brain injury and accident lawyer will be able to guide brain injury sufferers and their families through the many difficult choices and plans that are a part of the aftermath of a brain injury event. The accident lawyers who work in this area are also able to pursue claims for legal compensation, not to mention offering guidance in dealing with medical insurance claims, disability, eligibility for government assistance, educational considerations, guardianship decisions, work-related issues, and even the establishment of a special needs trust.

Choosing A Lawyer

As with any professional service, you should do some homework and ask questions before retaining the services of a brain injury or accident lawyer. The choice of a lawyer can affect the rest of your life.

How many cases similar to yours has the lawyer been involved in over the last few years, and what were the results of those cases? Client confidentiality notwithstanding, a lawyer should be able to provide you with some information to factor into your decision. Does the lawyer have direct experience representing clients with traumatic brain injuries? You want someone who focuses on personal injury law, not a one-size-fits-all lawyer.

Will the lawyer be representing your case himself, or will it be referred to another lawyer in the firm? If so, what is that lawyer’s track record with cases such as this one? Have members of the firm written any articles relating to brain injury and the law? Are they involved with any bar associations, brain injury associations, or other activities and organizations related to the representation of persons with brain injury?

Don’t be afraid of asking questions, even if they appear direct, or downright probing. You are entrusting this person with your life and well-being, and the decision should not be taken lightly.
