How a Hollis Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help You Claim Compensation
Symptoms and effects of a TBI may not be immediately apparent, making it difficult in some cases for victims to prove the injury exists. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) do not always involve an open head wound, skull fracture, or loss of consciousness. Injured parties may struggle to obtain the compensation needed to pay for medical costs, exposing them to financial hardship.
As well as providing clarity about your legal options in a free initial consultation, our team offers the following services to help you pursue the compensation you deserve at this challenging time:
- Gathering evidence to support your case
- Identifying the party or parties responsible for the accident
- Proving negligence caused your injuries
- Managing communications with insurance adjusters
- Estimating the financial impact of your injuries
- Negotiating a fair settlement with the at-fault party’s insurer or legal team
- Representing you in court where necessary
- Providing our services on a no-win-no-fee basis
Further, it is important to be aware of laws that could affect your right to claim compensation. In most personal injury lawsuits, CVP §214 gives you three years to file. However, in some cases, the time to act can be shorter, depending on the circumstances of your accident and who is responsible for it.
Motorists, Business Owners, and Employers Have a Duty Of Care for Your Safety
Road users owe a legal duty of care to other motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians. Similarly, anyone responsible for an area or property open to the public must take reasonable steps to make the area safe for employees, customers, or residents.
Many people fail to move forward with a claim because they do not know their legal rights. Proving injuries that are not visible can be challenging in some cases, as is proving that another’s negligence caused your accident. Some insurance companies will put up a tough fight in order to delay, underpay, or even deny your claim.
Your lawyer can gather witness statements while they are still fresh in memory and other vital evidence to build your case.
We Will Seek Compensation for Your Injuries
A non-fatal brain injury can permanently change a person’s life. We can help you initiate legal action to recover the compensation needed to maintain your independence and quality of life.

We Will Take Your Future Losses into Account
TBI symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe and are commonly caused by motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, assault, and sports and recreation head injuries. A brain injury can affect a person physically, emotionally, or behaviorally.
Depending on the type of injury, you may be experiencing one or more of the following symptoms which could indicate the presence of a TBI:
- Unusual fatigue or drowsiness
- Problems with speech, vision, balance, or memory
- Mood changes
- Difficulty sleeping
- Dilation of the pupils
- Convulsions or seizures
- Loss of consciousness
If you or a loved one suffered a sudden bump, blow, or jolt to the head, it is essential to seek medical assistance to have your injuries properly treated and documented to prevent any further damage. Whatever type of brain injury you have suffered, you could be eligible to recover compensation.
