Sustaining a traumatic brain injury is sometimes the unfortunate consequence of an accident, fall or some other form of trauma – and it is an injury which can drastically impact the sufferer.
In the event that your brain injury was sustained due to the fault or negligence of another, it’s important to discuss your compensation claim options with an expert brain injury lawyer. After suffering a brain injury, the ongoing challenges can be numerous – for some individuals they can continue life with minimal ongoing impacts, while for others, the injury can result in serious and ongoing deterioration in cognitive, physical, emotional or independent functioning.
Whether it was yourself or a loved one who suffered the injury, our expert brain injury lawyers can help. Depending on the seriousness of the brain injury, appointing a power of attorney may be necessary. Whatever the situation, your lawyer can discuss the best approach and your right to compensation.
In the event of an accident, your finances can be one of your biggest concerns – especially if you are unable to work. That’s why it’s comforting to know that all our claims (yours included) are run under our No Win, No Fee Guarantee.
Brain Injury Compensation Claim Process Brisbane, QLD
The most important first step after any accident or injury is to seek medical attention. Depending on the severity of the injuries sustained, this might be your GP or a nearby hospital.
Once you have sought treatment and any required pain management, you should consult an expert brain injury lawyer. This is especially relevant if you believe another party or person is at fault for the accident and your injuries.
The claim process will depend on how the brain injury was sustained as the process is dictated by the type of accident – such as a Motor Vehicle Accident, Work Accident or a Public Place Accident. Your expert lawyer will be able to discuss with you what the exact process will be – once you talk about your circumstances further.
It may be the case that the brain injury was the fault of a medical practitioner, in which case your lawyer will likely investigate a Medical Negligence Claim. In the event that no one is at fault for the brain injury, but you (or your loved one) are now rendered unable to work, you or your loved one could be eligible to make a Superannuation Claim.
Again, this is something your expert brain injury lawyer can discuss with you.
Whichever process applies to your situation, your lawyer will firstly look to assist you by ensuring that if possible, the relevant insurer starts funding your rehabilitation as soon as possible – meaning that you will not be out of pocket for these costs. Your expert brain injury lawyer will then progress in building your case, and will explore every avenue for compensation. During this time you will likely have a variety of medical appointments, which assist in establishing the ongoing impacts of your injuries.
