A head injury, especially a traumatic brain injury, can be particularly tragic because the consequences are often lifelong. If you have suffered a head injury due to someone else’s misconduct (carelessness or even deliberate violence), it is imperative that you seek experienced legal counsel who will fight to make sure you receive every dime that you deserve.
It’s usually quicker and easier to settle than to go to court. Insurance companies realize this too, which is why over 90 percent of our clients end up with settlements without ever having to go to trial. Should the other side get stubborn, however, we are more than ready for a courtroom showdown – and our track record proves that we know what we are doing.
At Malman Law, we understand that when you have suffered a serious head injury, “success” is measured in dollars and cents — and our record proves it:
Following is an incomplete list of some of the types of personal injury cases we handle:
“Two years ago, I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet.” – Malman Law Client
Some of the most common symptoms of a head injury include:
If you experience any of these symptoms, especially after a blow to the head, seek medical attention immediately.
A wrongful death claim can be filed by the personal representative of the victim (the person named in the will as the estate executor, or someone appointed by the court). Damages can be substantial, and they will go to the surviving spouse or next of kin.
The most common causes of head and brain injuries are:
Children are particularly susceptible to traumatic brain injury, because they are physically physical fragile and because they tend to be accident-prone.
The general deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years after the date of the accident. This deadline could be extended if you can prove that you had no way of knowing that you were injured until after the accident. This can be reasonable claim, because sometimes symptoms of head injuries are delayed.
Under Malman Law’s Zero Fee Guarantee, our fees are calculated as a percentage of the amount you recover. Although we can make no ironclad guarantees, we are typically able to recover several times as much for an injury victim as he would have been able to recover on his own, even if he won the case. And if we recover nothing for you, you will we us nothing.
