Answering Your Questions About Serious Brain Injuries
When the doctors leave your hospital room after explaining a brain injury, you are left whirling; the jargon, medical terminology and the sheer impact of the event can be nearly incomprehensible.
At Palmintier Law Group, we have been a lifeline for Baton Rouge families going through a medical crisis for decades. Our team can give you specific legal advice and help you pursue a fair settlement after an injury. Until then, here is some basic information that can help you get started.
Will a lawsuit help me pay my medical bills?
A successful traumatic brain injury (TBI) case often covers the full value of your medical care. This includes initial care, like emergency medical services, and may cover ongoing medical treatments and medical technology like wheelchairs.
What if my loved one can’t take care of him or herself anymore?
In some cases, where the injury is very severe, settlements can include the cost of in-home care or adult day services. It can also include the estimated cost of your loved one’s lifetime of lost earnings.
Insurance offered me a settlement. Should I take it?
It is unlikely that an insurance company’s initial settlement offer includes full and fair compensation. The best way to make sure that your settlement fully accounts for your ongoing care is to work with an experienced law firm that puts people at the center of their firm’s practice.
Will filing a case cost me money?
No. At our firm, we operate on a contingency basis for all personal injury cases. This means that we only ever collect a fee as a part of a successful settlement. The negligent party pays us – not you.
