How a Missouri Car Accident Attorney Supports Your Traumatic Brain Injury Compensation Case

When you suffer serious auto accident injuries, especially in a crash that wasn’t your fault, it’s critical to file a claim for compensation. Certain conditions, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), often require extensive treatment and incur significant medical expenses. 

Taking on the insurance company to pursue coverage of these costs isn’t something most of us can do, even under ideal circumstances. So put yourself in the strongest legal position by hiring the experienced Missouri car accident attorneys at Beck & Beck to handle your case. 

Unfortunately, There’s Little You Can Do on Such a Large Case

Most people dealing with brain injuries experience considerable effects for quite some time. Even if you have a favorable prognosis for recovery, TBIs still compromise your function and capacity. So this makes the accident claims process even more complex. There are many details that need to be handled—and you won’t get any grace or understanding if there’s a mistake in your claim. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses, and any error on your part means they can save money at your expense.

However, when you hire a brain injury lawyer, it’s their responsibility to handle all the details of your case. While you still make all necessary decisions, you do so with advice from your legal team and the options it provides for you. Meanwhile, while you focus on your health and recovery, your attorney gathers evidence, talks with witnesses and experts, files the case, and handles all communications with the insurer—including settlement negotiations.  

You Might Not Know How Much Your Case Is Worth 

The value of your traumatic brain injury case depends on your circumstances, projected health, and any needs that have to be addressed due to the accident. No matter how large your potential settlement may be, it’s crucial that it’s valued appropriately, because each dollar represents actual harm you’ve endured.  

You can be certain the negligent party’s insurance company knows your case’s value practically down to the penny. It has sophisticated software and data metrics that provide a number that it wants to go below to the fullest extent possible.  

You and your legal team need to work with the same level of information the insurer has. Otherwise, you’ll be at a steep disadvantage in the claim or lawsuit process. Your lawyer may learn the value of your claim by reviewing the specifics and working with:

  • Medical experts
  • Life care planning services
  • Vocational and economic experts

This type of information—combined with your property damage, current and future medical costs, TBI rehabilitation, and other accident-related expenses—all contribute to how your attorney will structure a claim based on economic and non-economic damages.
