You Only Have a Limited Amount of Time To File a Brain Injury Lawsuit
Building a solid personal injury case for compensation takes time. Each state sets a time limit for filing personal injury cases after a brain injury. Because of this, it’s important that you get started on your case as soon as possible.
Getting an early start on your case allows your legal team to:
- Investigate the cause of your accident
- Complete and file paperwork
- Speak to witnesses and gather time-sensitive evidence
When you work with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., we will explain your legal options and inform you about the statute of limitations and other time limits that apply to your case.
There Are Several Types of Brain Injuries
There are many ways you could suffer a brain injury, the most common being car accidents and falls, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You could suffer several different types of brain injuries, including:
- Contrecoup injuries involving skull impact on two sides
- Skull fracture
- Brain penetration by an object
- Oxygen deprivation
Symptoms of brain injuries include dizziness, nausea, blurry vision, speech problems, seizures, fatigue, and loss of consciousness. It is important to note that some symptoms do not present right away.
Brain injuries often impact victims’ lives for years. Long-term care and physical therapy is often needed. Medical treatment will likely be costly. The injured person might also be temporarily or permanently unable to work, which means they can’t earn money to pay bills.
As the bills pile up, brain injury victims also deal with emotional and mental issues as well as physical pain. Luckily, they have options to hold the liable party accountable. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, it is our privilege to make as many of those options as possible available to you or your loved one.
