Brain Bleed Accident – Do You Need a Lawyer?
If you have recently been injured in an accident that resulted in a brain bleed injury, chances are that you are going to require a significant amount of time and medical care to recover as fully as possible from the harm that you have suffered. As a result, you are likely feeling a sense of panic about how much your care will cost, how any wages that you’re losing from work will impact your family’s budget, etc. Thankfully, you do not have to navigate the legal and financial aftermath of your brain bleed accident alone. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you to explore your rights and options under the law.
Personal Injury Lawsuits
If another’s intentionally harmful, negligent, or reckless actions or inactions contributed to the cause(s) of your injuries, you are likely in a strong position to file a personal injury lawsuit. If so, you’ll need to speak with a lawyer about the potential value of your case, construct a solid legal strategy, and execute that strategy. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to a truly significant amount of compensation.
If you were engaged in work-related activities at the time of your accident, you may be entitled to a workers’ compensation benefits award at this time. If you are either improperly classified as an independent contractor or you are properly classified as a full-time or part-time employee, you are likely eligible for these benefits.
If you are eligible for this coverage, seek legal guidance as fast as you can. You may be barred from receiving your rightful benefits award if you do not take certain steps within days of your accident.
If you have already been offered a settlement by those who caused you harm, seek out an attorney to review the terms of the offer immediately. Most settlement offers expire in a matter of days. As an experienced brain bleed lawyer – including those who practice at Davis & Brusca, LLC – can confirm, signing a settlement offer generally results in also signing away your right to sue those who have harmed you. Some settlement offers are fair and others are—decidedly—not. Having an attorney review the terms of any offer before you either sign it or reject it will help to ensure that your rights are properly protected and/or preserved.
