Putting Together Your Case

A brain injury claim in Massachusetts requires a thorough understanding of the legal system and how brain injuries are caused. Many factors could lead to such an injury, including car or truck accidents, slip-and-fall incidents, medical malpractice, defective products, and more. Proving the responsible party's negligence or recklessness caused the brain damage is essential to winning your case. 

It is also crucial for you to secure legal representation soon after your accident so that evidence can be preserved and that memories about the accident can remain fresh. If possible, record what you remember about the accident in as much detail as possible in a document or journal to avoid forgetting an important aspect of your case. This will help us identify details to look out for and may lead to identifying who or what caused your injury.

The first step in filing a brain injury claim is contacting an experienced personal injury attorney. We will help you understand your rights under Massachusetts law and will assist you in collecting evidence to support your claim. We will give you a clear and honest estimate of what you may receive based on the damage you sustained and the care you need and develop a plan of action accordingly. 

When filing an injury claim, collecting relevant medical records showing the extent of your injuries and documenting any care needed for recovery or treatment is essential. If possible, get a detailed medical report, including an MRI or CT scan. Photographs of the accident scene may also help determine liability and document damage caused by the negligent party. Additionally, any correspondence between you and other parties involved should be kept as part of your record. 

We will guide you through each step of the claims process and advocate on your behalf during settlement negotiations or before a jury trial if necessary. Our attorneys are adept at negotiating with insurance companies and defending against large corporations or other adversaries who may challenge the validity of your claim. 

We encourage you to refrain from discussing your case with the other party's insurer, as they are primarily interested in paying out as little as possible. Insurers, after all, are businesses. We will handle these discussions. You should also avoid discussing your case on social media, blogs, forums, and public messaging.

Determining Whether or Not You Have a Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) often have devastating and life-altering effects. Diagnosing a brain injury can be difficult, but early detection is critical for proper treatment. Being able to identify your symptoms will help ensure that you receive the care that you need. It is not uncommon for symptoms to go unnoticed by doctors or unreported by patients, and having a list to refer to may be the difference between getting the care you need and going without it. This, in turn, helps produce an accurate medical report as early as possible, which is crucial to the success of your case and the amount of compensation you will be entitled to. Finally, the list of symptoms below may help you identify warning signs in loved ones recently involved in an accident who deny that they need further medical care or legal representation. 

The most common symptom of a brain injury is impaired cognitive function, including difficulty with memory, problem-solving, decision-making, and attention. Other signs include changes in speech or language processing abilities, changes in emotional state (e.g., increased aggression or anxiety), or physical changes such as an inability to balance or loss of coordination. 

Other common symptoms include: 

  • Disorientation
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness 
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
