Who Is Liable if Someone Sustains a TBI?
Brain injuries happen in many different ways. Determining liability for a brain injury depends primarily on how the accident occurred. Some of the most common causes of brain injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Construction accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
Your TBI lawyer will look into the events surrounding the accident to determine how to go about establishing liability.
For example, when a brain injury occurs due to a car accident, your lawyer can work to build a case against the other driver. They’ll consult police reports, traffic camera footage, and eyewitness accounts. They may need to take additional steps, such as hiring an accident reconstruction specialist or requesting that the other driver be tested for drugs or alcohol.
Your lawyer can collect all the available evidence, build a case, and work to negotiate a settlement. Brain injury compensation is typically paid by the insurance company of the liable person or business.
