Medical Evidence And Experts In Brain Damage Claims

First, it is important to understand that no two brain damage claims are handled the same way. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) range from mild to severe, and the nature of the injury will impact the way that the claim is handled.

Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) claims are, in some ways, more challenging than severe brain damage claims. Typically, in severe brain damage claims, the evidence of the injury is clear and difficult to argue against, although that will not stop insurance companies from trying to do so. However, in MTBI claims, the symptoms may be subtle. Things like personality changes, memory loss, cognitive difficulties and headaches may not show up in MRIs or CT scans. Insurance companies will use this lack of hard medical evidence to downplay the severity of the injury and attempt to avoid paying compensation.

We know how to work with the evidence that is available. We also frequently work with trusted medical experts whose opinions are valued in courtrooms. Count on us to build a strong case designed to maximize your compensation.
