Our Lawyers Serving Fort Myers Will Identify Opportunities for Brain Injury Damages
Because of the many nuances and unknowns of brain injuries and their consequences, we identify losses on a case-by-case basis. Our catastrophic injury team never makes assumptions about your condition or what you need. We listen intently and then strategize based on the evidence.
That being said, we group your possible compensation into categories:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost income
- Pain and suffering
These three areas are equally important to helping you recover personally and financially. We, therefore, won’t let the other parties undercut or dismiss a category of damages.
Brain Injuries Are Often More Expensive
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), inpatient stays were 74 percent more expensive for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) than other injuries in 2017. They were also over two days longer.
Additionally, brain injuries can have long-term financial effects. For example, brain damage during pregnancy or birth is linked to cerebral palsy (CP), which can carry lifelong expenses for families. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that medical costs for CP are ten times higher.
This is why having a support system behind you can prove beneficial. Those who are liable may treat a brain injury as comparable to other injuries or ignore the cost of the injury over time. Our lawyers and the medical professionals we consult provide critical context to argue for appropriate compensation.
Secondary Problems Are Eligible for Damages
You should receive compensation for more than just the treatment of the injury itself. Brain injuries are notable for creating additional issues:
- Depression, anxiety, insomnia, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Physical and intellectual disabilities
- Chronic pain
- Vision or hearing loss or problems
- Lost income, job loss, and reduced earning ability
- Seizures and epilepsy
We can include the costs associated with these issues in our assessment. Medications, therapies, and any accommodations necessary for you to live with these conditions are a part of your case.
Our Fort Myers Brain Injury Attorneys Have Experience in Multiple Practice Areas
Several accidents can cause brain injuries. As a result, a brain injury attorney in Fort Myers must have experience with various accidents to represent victims.
Freidin Brown, P.A. has over 100 years of combined legal experience, so we are familiar with the many scenarios and variables that come with brain injury cases. Our firm assists victims who suffer injuries from:
- Roadway accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
- Defective products
- Construction accidents
Any of these can form the basis of a case if someone’s carelessness is at the root, and getting to the root is our job. We can evaluate the evidence to identify a negligent action—driving drunk, failing to perform a C-section, inadequate security on a property—and connect it to your brain injury.
We Draw on Additional Resources to Fight for You
Brain injuries themselves are a complex area of medicine, so explaining your condition to an insurance adjuster or jury may require technical jargon. On top of that, some legal practice areas are particularly challenging, such as medical malpractice. Even auto accident cases are sometimes complicated if more than one party is involved.
When we face these obstacles, our attorneys don’t hesitate to consult experts to assist us. We could reach out to any of the following for insight so that we can strengthen your case:
- Rehabilitation specialists
- Security experts
- Auto parts specialists
- Reconstruction experts
Similarly, we can utilize specialized evidence. For instance, if you were hit by a truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel, we can obtain their transportation logs and investigate if they violated federal hours-of-service regulations. Likewise, if you suffered a brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen due to a carbon monoxide leak, we can consult experts on the equipment to demonstrate how the leak occurred.
Specialized testimony and evidence are part of our firm’s commitment to specialized service. Every case we handle, whether it’s a nuanced medical malpractice suit or an obvious act of roadway negligence, is treated with the same attention to detail.
Our Multimillion-Dollar Recoveries Have Helped Many Recover Their Losses
We have achieved positive case results for brain injury victims in multiple practice areas, including the following:
- $12.7 million for a brain injury due to negligent hospital care
- $5.8 million for mild brain damage due to a car accident
- $1.8 million for an infant brain injury due to medical malpractice
- $1.1 million for a brain injury due to carbon monoxide poisoning
In fact, we have over 20 verdicts that awarded victims over $1 million.
Yet just because we have worked on high-profile cases doesn’t mean we have lost touch with the importance of relationships with clients. Our testimonials speak to our compassion and commitment.
