Before You Decide
Good personal injury lawyers know how to work with victims in their field of expertise. Brain injury lawyers know that the effects of brain injuries may take time to develop, and that settling a case too soon is asking for problems. You should get the advice of a professional in this field, who has access to the best medical professionals, before you decide what your case is worth.
Don't Settle Too Soon
It may be that you will need further ongoing treatment to manage your health and welfare for the rest of your life. Settling a case like this too soon usually means that, at some point, you will run out of funds for your care and be forced to accept less than you deserve in the way of medical treatment or rely on other means of support.
This is not fair when you consider that your accident was not your fault, and that someone else actually holds the responsibility for your condition. Many at-fault drivers or other people walk away from a shattering personal injury case without paying anything at all, and others never accept full legal responsibility for their actions. It is up to the victim to pursue the case and ensure that the at-fault party is held liable for the actions that led to this tragedy.
