Brain injuries are complex and require special attention. Victims who appear normal sometimes suffer the most, and there are often overwhelming issues that the injured person and family members must face.
Our firm has extensive experience with the complex issues involved in brain injury cases. We have settled many multi-million dollar brain injury claims, including car crash cases, slip and fall cases, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, product liability cases, and medical malpractice claims.
Insurance companies usually fight every step of the way. We will protect your rights in a number of ways including:
- Ensuring the injured victim receives the proper medical and rehabilitation care.
- Retaining the appropriate medical experts.
- Obtaining expert evidence as needed from economists, settlement specialists, actuaries, medical experts, and future care cost experts.
- Determining the economic loss and long term care costs.
We strive to resolve cases through negotiation, and we use mediation in the appropriate circumstances. When issues cannot be resolved through these channels, we will fight for your rights and aggressively pursue a fair solution through the courts.
We act only for the injured, never for ICBC. Some lawyers work for both ICBC and the injured. We work only for you to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation available.
