Frequently Asked Questions about Brain Injury Lawyers

1) How much time do I have to file a personal injury case?

There is no definite answer to this question. It depends on the state you live in. In some states, you must  file a case within a year of an accident, while in some states, you may have more than a year to approach the court. Odjaghian Law Group advises anyone who’s suffered a serious brain injury  to file a personal injury case as soon as possible because the evidence is most likely to be intact.

2) What if I was partially responsible for the accident?

Depending on the state where you live,, the rules change. For example, in some states, the contributory negligence rule applies, and one cannot claim compensation if the mistake was on their part as well. Some states’ law systems will allow you to recover the damages as long as the victim is not 50 percent or more at fault. 

Discussing with an attorney will shed more light on the matter and help you understand what options you have.

3) What kind of compensation is available from an Odjaghian lawsuit?

In most cases, a victim will get compensation for the incurred, incurring, and future medical costs, loss of wages, mental agony, and suffering he/she has undergone/undergoing. 

If proven before the court that the defendant caused the injury intentionally, punitive damages may be available.

4) What are the requirements to prove the negligence of a defendant in a brain injury case?

A legal expert will have to illustrate four elements -- Duty, Breach of Duty, Causation and Damages -- to prove the innocence of his client. It is the legal duty of a defendant to avoid acts that are harmful to others. 

Your traumatic brain injury attorney has to prove that the defendant did not exercise the duty of care or fell short of the accepted standard. He/she has to prove further that this breach caused the accident and incurred your damages.

5) Do I have strong evidence to win a brain injury case?

You’ll need to prove that your injury was due to the defendant’s breach of duty, and demonstrate that the accident happened (and that the damages were caused) to you were because of the injuries sustained.

Each case is unique, and consulting with an experienced brain injury lawyer can help you determine the strength of the evidence and damages in your case. 

6) What are the different types of laws to help people with brain injury?

Perhaps the basic yet most important law that you should be aware of is the Statute of Limitations. It restricts the time to file for a claim, in case you have brain injury/injuries. 

If you miss the stipulated time, you lose the chance to get compensation. Pure Comparative Fault Standard is another important thing you must know. This provision says that a party must be “at fault” for the cause of the injury. 

7) When should I get in touch with the lawyer after sustaining brain injury?

As soon as possible. Often times, the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be minor at first, but will later progress into more seriuos damage if not treated quickly and properly. Timely advice from an attorney is what you need during such instances. 

8) What are the different types of brain injuries?

It can be divided into two broad categories -- traumatic and acquired brain injuries. While the former one is obvious such as penetrative injuries and fissures in brain structure, the latter is subtle such as oxygen deprivation. 

9) I had an accident years ago. Can I still file a claim for my brain injury? 

It depends.The statute of limitations differs from state to state. Please get in touch with us for an insightful answer to this.

10) Can you list down some of the symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury?

Depending on the gravity of the injury, the symptoms will range over a variety of issues, such as momentary loss of consciousness, memory lapse, and sensitivity to light and sound. In severe cases, the victims may experience coma, seizure, and dilated pupils.
