Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys Serving Polk County, Including Lakeland, Bartow and Winter Haven
Suffering a brain or back injury can seriously affect the way you live your life. Here is some information on proving you are the victim:
- Seek medical attention: You must seek medical attention immediately, not only for your health, but for your case. In order to prove you are a victim, you must have the full extent of your injuries diagnosed. Not seeking medical aid can greatly jeopardize your case.
- Contact an attorney: Next, you must contact an attorney. Your lawyer can gather evidence and begin building a case to prove that you are a victim.
- Speak to witnesses: Contact any witnesses who may have heard or seen the accident that caused your Bartow traumatic brain injury. Be sure to gather their statements and additional contact information. Witnesses can be extremely valuable to your personal injury lawyer.
- Prove negligence: Lastly, in order to prove that you are a victim, you must prove the existence of negligence. The four basic elements are:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
An experienced Lakeland, Winter Haven and Bartow back injury lawyer can quickly assess the strength of your case and determine if negligence exists.
TBI and back injury victims win and lose cases every day. If a victim does not seek proper medical attention, fails to follow the orders of his or her doctor and does not hire a skilled attorney, the chances of success are unlikely. However, if a victim takes legal action immediately after injury, retains experienced counsel and can prove negligence, obtaining just compensation for a traumatic brain injury is possible.
