Do all Michigan personal injury lawyers know how to handle a traumatic brain injury case? Absolutely not.
The simple fact is that not all personal injury lawyers have the necessary expertise to represent a client who has suffered a traumatic brain injury. To successfully represent a brain injured client, it is essential for a lawyer to have thorough understanding of the medicine and science behind brain injuries. This is the only way to understand how the course of a brain injury victim's life has been altered and how it has affected the family of the victim. It is also the only way to attack and defeat the "hired gun" experts that will be hand-picked by the insurance company to defeat a brain injury claim.
A brain injury is any injury that results in brain cell death and loss of function. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an external trauma to the head or violent movement of the head, such as from a fall, car crash or being shaken. In fact, car accidents cause about 30% of the traumatic brain injuries in Michigan.
TBI is complex and unpredictable in its outcomes. Serious injury can occur without obvious physical disabilities. Both mild and severe TBI can result in lifelong impairments - requiring long-term care services. In cases involving motor vehicle accidents, the brain injury victim is entitled to significant benefits under the Michigan No-Fault Laws. These include lifetime medical expenses, attendant care services, lost wages, and even housing accommodations.
