This post concludes our series on the handling of head and brain injury cases in Austin, Texas. We decided to write on this topic due to the fact that many do not how to proceed after having been in a serious accident. The goal of our last several posts has been to provide you with information which will help you make an informed decision when selecting a personal injury attorney. Contact our office today to speak with a lawyer.
We addressed several topics over our recent articles. Subjects we have looked at included:
- Calculating damages for a head injury
- The roles of experts in head injury cases
- Taking a head injury or brain trauma case to trial
There are many reasons why victims need to understand these topics. First, by realizing that a damages award must include any monies needed for future care and lost wages, a victim can ensure that they do not accept a “low ball” settlement. Second, experts play a crucial role in these types of cases so it is critical that you hire a firm with the resources necessary to see the case through to completion. Third, it is important to realize that trial in a brain or head injury case can be complicated if a victim’s memory has been impacted by the accident.
It cannot be stressed enough that you should retain a lawyer with extensive experience if you have been the victim of a head injury. Such matters can be highly complex and involve issues regarding the admissibility of evidence and the credibility of experts. Lesser experienced attorneys may not have dealt with such issues at length. Dan Christensen is a former prosecutor who has taken numerous cases to trial. He is highly experienced in the area of personal injury law and has handled many matters involving head trauma. Contact our Austin office today to schedule an initial consultation.
