How Brain Injuries Happen in Olympia

A traumatic brain injury can happen any time there is a jolt or strike to the head, or an object penetrates the skull. While everyone is at risk of a TBI, the CDC points out that the young and elderly are at particular risk.

Over the years, we’ve worked with many clients who have sustained this serious injury from a variety of situations, including:

No matter what happened, we want to hear from you if someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing caused your brain injury.

Holding the At-Fault Party Responsible

Knowing who’s guilty and getting that guilty party to pay for your expenses are two different things. To prove liability in a traumatic brain injury claim, you need to be able to demonstrate that:

  1. The guilty party owed you a duty of care. In other words, they should have behaved in a responsible way that kept you safe. For example, drivers agree to abide by the rules of the road. Property owners are obliged to maintain their premises and fix any known hazards. Doctors should provide care to the best of their ability.
  2. There was a breach in the duty of care. Another way to say this is that the guilty party was negligent or careless. Sometimes, their behavior was willful and malicious. In any case, at some point the other person’s actions put you in danger.
  3. You were injured as a result. In personal injury law, it’s not enough to say that the other party could have harmed you by their recklessness. We need to be able to prove that their recklessness did in fact, harm you. When we’re armed with medical bills, missed wages, and other proof of harm, we can then pursue a personal injury claim.

We recommend you involve a knowledgeable Olympia personal injury attorney to assist with your traumatic brain injury claim. At Ladenburg Law, we’re prepared to investigate the facts of what happened, build evidence to support your claim, and fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.

Factors That Can Impact Your Settlement

Rightfully so, many people want to know what kind of compensation they can receive for their brain injury case. However, arriving at a potential value isn’t as simple as plugging numbers into an online calculator (no matter what other lawyers’ websites want you to believe).

Some of the factors that impact your settlement could include:

  • Severity of your injury
  • Lifestyle impact of your injury
  • Impact to your work
  • Temporary or permanent disability caused by injury
  • Your age, health, and lifestyle to the injury
  • Source of funds from at-fault party (for instance, their insurance policy)
  • Previous award amount in similar cases

Another important factor to consider is the quality and reputation of the injury attorney you choose to work with. We invite you to read what our clients have to say about working with us.
