What is the process of a brain injury lawsuit?

If you or your loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury that was someone else’s fault, you deserve justice. You may be considering a lawsuit to obtain compensation, and you may be wondering what the process is.

The preliminary step is to consult with an attorney. Brain injuries are more complex than other types of personal injury lawsuits, so it is important to choose a lawyer who is experienced with these types of cases. At Joyce & Reyes, we have extensive experience with brain injury matters, and we offer a free consultation where we will learn the facts about your situation and inform you of your options.

After seeking the advice of an attorney, if you decide to file a lawsuit, a complaint is filed in court stating your allegations, and the defendant must answer it. Once these documents have been filed, a period known as discovery will begin, which is when both sides must produce evidence and share it with one another. This way, both plaintiff and defendant are made aware of the full strength of the case. Often, a settlement will be reached in the case.

While most brain injury lawsuits do settle, it is important to choose an attorney who is willing to take your case all the way to trial if necessary.
