How Can a Traumatic Brain Attorney Help?

Traumatic brain injuries can require extensive ongoing medical care. If you were injured in an accident that resulted in a TBI, you must speak with an experienced traumatic brain injury lawyer as soon as possible. At the Ben Dominguez Law Firm, our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of brain injuries and have experience successfully handling these types of cases.

And more.

Negotiating With the Insurance Company

Shortly after the accident, you may be contacted by the negligent party’s insurance provider. The claims adjuster may ask to record your statement. During the phone conversation, they may ask several confusing and misleading questions that are designed to get you to admit fault or state that your injuries are not as severe as you initially claimed they were. An insurance company is in the business of making a profit. Because of this, their claims adjusters will look for any reason to deny a claim or pay out as little as possible. The claims adjuster may even offer a settlement during this time, hoping you will accept their offer and go away. However, these offers are often made before the claims adjuster even knows the extent of your injuries and other damages. Never accept a settlement without first speaking to an attorney.

A lawyer will know the true value of your claim. At the Ben Dominguez Law Firm, our legal team will handle all communication with the insurance company, including negotiating a fair settlement. If the insurance company refuses to make a fair offer, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and pursue compensation in court.

Contusions are bruises on the brain caused by a direct impact to the head.

Diffuse Axonal Injury

This is a severe type of TBI that involves widespread damage to nerve fibers throughout the brain.

Intracranial pressure can result from different forms of brain injury, causing compression of brain tissue.

"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."
