Why You Need a Brain Injury Lawyer

Types of Brain Injury Cases We Handle

We commonly represent brain injury victims in the following types of cases, but this is not an exhaustive list:

Auto Accident Brain Injuries

The force and impact involved in collisions commonly lead to brain injuries. In many cases, the at-fault driver is liable, but liability can also extend to other parties, such as the vehicle manufacturer or the government agency responsible for maintaining the roads.

Medical Malpractice-Related Brain Injuries

When a brain injury is caused due to medical negligence or malpractice, the healthcare provider responsible can be held accountable.

Sports-Related Head Injuries

Sports-related brain injuries can lead to complex liability scenarios, where multiple parties may be held responsible, such as the coach, trainer, organization, institution, or equipment manufacturer.

Workplace Accident Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur in various workplace settings, from construction sites to office environments. We can ensure you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve and determine if any third parties can also be held liable.

Birth-Related Brain Injuries

Cases involving birth-related brain injuries require a high level of experience and sensitivity. Our team is skilled in handling these complex cases, ensuring families receive the support and compensation they need.

Product Liability-Related Brain Injuries

Our team is adept at holding manufacturers and distributors accountable for brain injuries caused by faulty products.

Pedestrian Accident Brain Injuries

Pedestrians involved in accidents with motor vehicles are at high risk of sustaining head injuries. In those cases, you may be able to recover substantial compensation from the at-fault driver.

Wrongful Death Due to Brain Injury

In cases where a brain injury leads to a tragic loss of life, our lawyers provide compassionate representation to the surviving family members, seeking justice and compensation on their behalf.

Types of Compensation Available for a Brain Injury

Even a mild TBI can lead to extensive personal and financial losses for a victim and their family. When another party is responsible, the following types of compensation may be available to pursue:

The court may also award punitive damages if the at-fault party exhibited extreme recklessness or egregious behavior. This form of compensation is meant as a punishment and to deter others from similar behavior.

How To Prove Another Party is Liable for My Brain Injury

Proving another party’s liability for a brain injury typically requires establishing the four elements of negligence. Those are as follows:

The Duty of Care

The first element involves demonstrating that the party you’re holding responsible owed you a duty of care. In the context of a brain injury case, this means showing that the defendant (at-fault party) had a legal obligation to act reasonably and avoid causing harm to others. For example, a driver has a duty to operate their vehicle safely and follow traffic laws.

The Breach of Duty

The second element involves showing that the defendant breached their duty of care. This means proving that they failed to act in a manner that a reasonable person in their position would have under similar circumstances. For example, if the defendant was driving recklessly or violating traffic rules, they may be considered to have breached their duty.


Causation has two components: “cause in fact” and “proximate cause.” “Cause in fact” means establishing that the defendant’s actions directly led to the brain injury. In other words, if not for the defendant’s breach of duty, the injury would not have occurred. “Proximate cause” involves demonstrating that the injury was a foreseeable consequence of the defendant’s actions.


The final element requires proving that you suffered actual damages as a result of the brain injury. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses incurred due to the injury.

To successfully prove another party’s liability for a brain injury, it is critical to gather relevant evidence, such as medical records, accident reports, surveillance footage, witness statements, and expert opinions on the extent of your harm and its impact on your life.
