How an Attorney Helps You Recover Financially

Your legal counsel’s job is to fight for every dollar you’re owed after a TBI. An attorney helps your financial recovery by:

Establishing Liability

The liable party might seem obvious, such as the at-fault driver in a car accident. However, it’s not always that simple. The at-fault party who caused your accident could be a crew who improperly loaded cargo into a truck, a property owner who didn’t fix a broken staircase, or someone else entirely.  

Filing Legal Actions

If insurance won’t cover all your costs (or denies your claim in bad faith) you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, Virginia has a strict statute of limitations on traumatic brain injury cases, which is why you need a lawyer to stay on top of that deadline.

Handling Communication

Insurance providers are more likely to treat you fairly and provide coverage for critical hospital costs if you have legal representation.   

Investigating the Accident

An attorney’s investigation is crucial to every other aspect of your recovery, from that first step of determining liability to presenting your case in court. This often involves going through employment records, eyewitness statements, police reports, surveillance videos, and other details to prove what occurred and who was responsible. 

Relieving the Pressure

Lawsuits and insurance claims are the last things you want to handle while recovering from a TBI. You should focus on your physical health while your attorney takes care of all the legalities.
