Pennsylvania TBI Attorney
In recent months, we have received a lot of inquiries about traumatic brain cases. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be worse than any broken bone, or even the loss of an extremity. What's worse, a TBI can cost the victim and his or her family thousands, even millions beyond what they thought would eventually owe in hospital bills. However, insurance companies often take advantage of those they insure and attempt to settle claims for pennies on the dollar in an effort to minimize liability and financial exposure. But with a quality TBI lawyer who cares about you, your injury, and the future of your family's well-being, you are at a much less risk of falling into the insurance low-ball trap.
Talk to an attorney before the insurance company
If you think you or someone you care for has become the victim of a traumatic brain injury, then it is important to remember some things. First, it is important that nothing is said to the insurance company. Because almost every call is recorded these days, anything you say can be used against you in a hearing. You should also never sign a release or accept any type of compensation before speaking with a personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies often bank on quick settlements will dangle an amount of money in front of you that they know is far less than your injury is worth. Remember, their main goal is to collect as much as they can, pay out as little as possible, and retain a positive image.
But what you likely do not realize is the extent of your injury and how long you may have to pay to alleviate the pain you are suffering will likely long surpass any amount an insurance company will initially offer you. Any quick settlement in a TBI case is not advisable, especially since the extent of the injury cannot not be determined until months, or sometimes even years, after the injury occurs.
