Determining the Value of Your Claim
A traumatic brain injury can lead to high medical bills and other expenses. As such, you or a family member may be entitled to claim damages, such as:
You can claim up to 100 percent of your expenses including ER visits, surgical procedures, hospital stays, medications, physical therapy, and doctor visits. You may also have long-term costs if you are disabled or require in-home care.
A traumatic brain injury often requires a long recovery that can last for several weeks or months. As a result, you may have lost wages from being out of work. You can claim your lost wages, benefits, or disability if you can no longer work.
Pain and Suffering
If you are experiencing ongoing severe pain and suffering, then you may be able to include your condition in your claim. Pain and suffering also includes loss of consortium, loss of quality of life, and mental or emotional distress.
Although it is impossible to calculate the exact amount of your case value, an attorney can submit your claim based on the extent of your losses and fight to get you the maximum compensation possible.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
A traumatic brain injury can be costly. Therefore, you may be tempted to take the first settlement offer from the insurance company. However, the offer may not accurately reflect what your case is worth. The Law Office of Frederick K. Wilson II can help you determine your case value and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
In addition, your lawyer can handle your case in the following ways:
- Investigate your case to obtain evidence of your claim
- Manage your entire case

- Fight for a fair settlement
- Represent you in court if you file a lawsuit.
While you are recovering from your injuries, a knowledgeable attorney can prepare your case, submit all the paperwork, and develop a legal strategy. You don’t have to take on the insurance company alone. With a law firm in your corner, you have the leverage you need to pursue the compensation you deserve.
