Two Good Reasons Why You Should Hire Counsel if You Have a Brain Injury.

Georgia B. Day

You don’t need an attorney for every legal dispute or difficulty you may have, but there are some cases where having competent counsel is not only prudent, but an absolute must,

A lawsuit involving serious brain injury is one of them.

Here are 2 reasons why if your lawsuit centers around a catastrophic brain injury, you should hire counsel.

1.Brain injury cases involve complex legal and medical issues.

Handling a brain injury case on your own without experienced legal counsel is really not a good idea. These kinds of cases have complex legal issues, procedures, and evidence requirements that a layperson (especially one who is suffering from brain damage) simply cannot handle. They also require a considerable understanding of medical information and terminology.

In many cases proving the brain injury can be difficult. For example, in a car accident case, proving that the brain injury was caused by the defendant’s negligent driving (and not some other cause) can be difficult to do. Making the proper legal causation connection requires experience. Preparing and presenting a case—especially one involving something as serious as a brain injury—is best left to the professionals.

2.Evaluation of Your Case.

Another reason to hire counsel if you have a brain injury is because many times it is difficult for those who have been injured through the fault of another to know whether a lawsuit is appropriate or likely to be successful under their particular circumstances.

In other words, you need a legal analysis of your case. And that’s something that only an attorney can provide. An attorney can evaluate the strength of your case and can advise you regarding your legal rights.

Another difficulty arises because often those suffering from a brain injury cannot recall all of the facts about what happened or how. Experienced brain injury attorneys know how to handle cases that may have gaps in the evidence.

Dealing with the results of an accident or incident that results in serious injury is difficult enough. There is no need to add to your burden by not getting the legal help you need when it comes to pursuing compensation for your injuries.
