Riviera Beach Brain Injury

Riviera Beach Brain InjurySustaining mild to moderate injuries in any kind of accident can place considerable stress on your entire family. Upon making a full recovery, though, you should be able to return to your normal routine, which might include going back to work. Suffering a brain injury, on the other hand, can cause lasting damage that prevents you from making a full recovery or ever holding a job again.

In such a scenario, it's natural to feel hopeless, especially if your family relied on you for financial support; however, if you were hurt because of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for all resulting damages. To determine if you have grounds for a personal injury claim after suffering a blow to the head, contact Donaldson & Weston.

Our compassionate personal injury attorneys take great pride in helping accident victims recover the compensation they need to move on with life. Call 561-299-3999 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of the leading brain injury lawyers in Riviera Beach.

Mistakes to Avoid During the Brain Injury Claims Process

The success of any brain injury claim depends on a variety of factors, but none of them matter if you make a critical mistake at some point during the proceedings. Unfortunately, it is relatively easy to jeopardize even a strong claim inadvertently, especially if you are unfamiliar with the claims process.

Some of the most common mistakes to avoid include:

  • Giving Recorded Statements: The insurance adjuster might ask for a recorded statement almost immediately, but providing one could be detrimental to your case. If you give a statement on your condition, for example, but then a complication arises and your prognosis changes, it might be difficult to retract the original statement.
  • Failing to Track All Damages: You will only be able to recover compensation for the damages that you can prove, so make sure you document everything. Save all medical bills, pharmacy receipts, and paystubs. It is also wise to photograph any visible wounds and start a daily journal in which you write about the ways the brain injury is affecting your everyday life.
  • Accepting Some Degree of Fault: The scene of an accident and its immediate aftermath are inherently chaotic. Depending on the circumstances, you may find yourself apologizing to those involved, which could be interpreted as admitting fault. It's best to avoid assigning blame at the scene; rather, you should provide statements only in regard to the basic facts of the incident: what happened, whether you were injured, etc.

I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
