Often called the “invisible injury,” a head injury can be difficult to diagnose and treat, a closed head injury can be even harder. Typically the result of a sudden violent blow or jolt to the head, when a brain injury has occurred or is suspected, it is critical to see a doctor or specialized neurologist as quickly as possible.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of disability and death in children and adolescents in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Brain injuries change quickly, so immediate and ongoing rehabilitation and care is critical. Employing CAT scans, MRIs or x-rays, along with simple tests that measure movement, speech, and thought can make a big difference in patient outcome.
An injured party should always consult an attorney who will build a case and file a lawsuit against the responsible parties. Many cases are resolved through direct negotiation or through mediation, and frequently a settlement is reached between the attorney and those at fault.
How much does a lawyer cost?
Sometimes an injured person is reluctant to hire a lawyer out of fear of the legal costs. The experienced attorneys at Burnett & Williams work on a contingency basis. That means we don’t earn a fee unless we get money for you. Our fees are based on a percentage of the amount recovered. While our fees are contingent, the costs associated with the case are the client’s responsibility regardless of the outcome. Those costs include expert witnesses, depositions, filing fees, and serving subpoenas. Many times we will advance these expenses and deduct them from the award. Costs vary depending on the complexity of the case. Traumatic Brain Injury cases, for example, often require expert testimony.
