What kinds of brain injuries most often lead to a lawsuit?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 1.4 million people are victims of a brain injury in the United States each year. Brain injuries can be caused by anything from sports activities to car accidents. It is important to understand what types of brain injuries may entitle you or your loved one to compensation through a lawsuit.

It is important to understand that not every traumatic brain injury can be the basis for a lawsuit. Most brain injury lawsuits are based on negligence, which requires that the injured person suffered harm as the result of someone else breaching their duty to exercise due care.

Lawsuits involving brain injuries can be more complicated than other types of cases, because brain injuries can be difficult to detect, and it may be hard to prove that the injury was the result of the defendant’s conduct and not some other event. This is why it is important to be represented by an attorney with experience in brain injury lawsuits.

If you suffered a brain injury that you believe was the fault of another, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Joyce & Reyes for a free consultation to learn more.
