How a Personal Injury Law Firm Can Help You

Too many people who have sustained personal injuries believe they do not need a personal injury lawyer to receive compensation. While there is no requirement to have legal representation, an attorney can help you in many different ways, including:

Investigate the circumstances of your injuries to determine whether you have a viable claim;

Review any settlement offers from insurance companies to determine whether they are adequate to cover your past and future losses;

Negotiate with the insurance company to try to obtain a higher settlement;

File a personal injury lawsuit if a favorable insurance settlement was never offered;

Represent you throughout the legal process to obtain a favorable settlement or an award at trial.

No matter what type of accident occurred, we can help to identify whether negligence was involved. Negligent parties can include drivers, property owners, companies, government entities, and more. Identifying the correct party and providing sufficient evidence of their negligence is essential to recovery in a personal injury case.

Negligence Commonly Leads to Personal Injury

Injuries can occur in many different kinds of accidents, many of which happen because another person or party acted in a negligent manner. In such situations, the negligent party may be held liable for the financial and intangible losses of anyone who suffered injuries.

Personal Injuries

Serious personal injuries can occur when you least expect it and can have a profound effect on your life. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 31 million people in the United States visit the E.R. due to accidental injuries in a single year. Many of these injury victims require hospitalization and long-lasting treatment while more than 130,000 people do not survive their injuries, making accidental personal injury the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S.

In many situations, victims of accidental personal injury have the right to seek substantial financial recovery. While seeking the necessary medical attention for your injuries should be your first priority, you should always discuss your rights and options with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible following an injury. The Casper Firm has obtained millions of dollars in recovery for our clients who sustained personal injuries.

Brain Damage Caused by an Accident

There are different types of brain damage that can be caused by factors both inside and outside the body. An acquired brain injury might be the effect of a stroke or brain tumor, as opposed to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that results from an external physical force. TBIs are common in accidents, such as auto collisions, falls, violent attacks, and sports incidents. Within the traumatic category, there are different types of brain damage that can result and have a considerable impact on the life of the victim. If you’ve suffered brain damage in accident, it’s important to discuss your options for recovering compensation with a Maryland traumatic brain injury attorney.

Types of Brain Damage Caused by an Accident

A victim may suffer from various brain conditions when injured in an accident, but some of the more common types of damage include:

  • Concussion
  • Contusion
  • Penetration

This is the most common type of traumatic brain injury, which a victim receives when the brain sustains trauma from an impact or sudden movement. The blood vessels in the brain can become distended and there may be damage to cranial nerves. Plus, the effects of a concussion can lead to temporary or permanent damage to the brain. Concussions are especially dangerous because a person may remain conscious, so he or she may not consider medical treatment.

Another type of brain damage is a contusion, which is bleeding in the braid; essentially, the condition a type of bruise. Contusions occur most often when a blunt instrument is used to strike the head or when a person’s head collides with an object. In more severe cases where the contusion is large, surgery may be necessary to remove the damaged tissue.

When an object actually penetrates the tissues of the brain, the damage can be critical. A penetrating injury in an accident may be caused by a sharp object that strikes the skull, forcing hair, skin, bones, and debris into the brain.

The Impact of Brain Damage for an Accident Victim

The effects of brain damage due to an accident vary based upon the region of the brain affected. If the injury is to the brain stem, the victim may have problems with concentration and balance. Damage to the temporal lobes may result in hearing and vision issues, while harm to the frontal lobe can be more extensive. A victim may suffer from memory problems, motor skills dysfunction, and problems with word association.

Severe Personal Injury

Often requiring a lifetime of medical treatment and personal care, severe injuries have life-altering consequences not only for the victim but also for the victim’s family and loved ones. It is essential to retain a Baltimore personal injury attorney with both the experience and resources to pursue justice for your severe injury.

Types of Severe Injury

While severe injuries are most often the result of motor vehicle accidents, incidents in the workplace, defective products, and medical malpractice, they can be caused by a great variety of events. When these devastating injuries are the result of someone else’s recklessness or negligence, you need a personal injury attorney who is skilled and knowledgeable in personal injury law so that you can be compensated for your injuries.

A Common Mistake in Severe Injury Cases

A crucial mistake we see is victims rushing to settle their personal injury claim because they believe that the insurance adjusters are on their side.  But insurance companies are private, for-profit entities that want to keep their money.  They prey on the uneducated and exhausted victims to settle for the bare minimum, which rarely covers future medical expenses, much less pain and suffering.  Insurance companies are not on your side.

Our Commitment to Help You Recover

Along with any severe injury comes the high and often insurmountable costs of necessary medical care. Additionally, the victim and family members necessary to care for the injured may have incurred a considerable loss of work-time and wages. You can be compensated for these costs as well as for the pain and suffering that you have experienced. A court may also award the victim punitive damages, a form of punishment for the party responsible for the injury. The Casper Firm can help you recover these losses.

We take the time to listen to you and to the unfortunate circumstances that caused this injury. The attorneys at The Casper Firm work hard to obtain the compensation you deserve, removing some of your stress, frustrations, and aggravations so that you can focus your energy on healing.  We are here to fight for your personal injury rights to get you justice.

Types of Damages that are Recoverable for Severe Personal Injuries

People are injured in serious accidents on a daily basis in Baltimore and the surrounding areas. While these accidents can range from car accidents and truck accidents to those involving defective consumer products that most of us use on an everyday basis, they all share one thing in common – when they are caused by negligence, victims can often recover for their injuries and other losses. In tort law, “damages” refer to monetary awards that are paid to a plaintiff who successfully brings a personal injury action. The exact types of damages available in a particular case depends on the specific losses sustained by a victim but can be largely grouped into the categories discussed below.

Economic Damages

Economic damages financially compensate an injured victim for specific quantifiable losses that they have sustained. In most cases, these kinds of damages are easy determined as they have a fixed financial value that has already been realized or can be accurately calculated into the future. Common kinds of economic damages that are often successfully sought in personal injury cases involving severe injuries include the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Lost income
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Ongoing medical expenses
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Household services that victims are unable to perform

Non Economic Damages

Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages are abstract and are not always easily ascertained. Common examples of non-economic damages include the following:

  • Reduced quality of life
  • Physical pain
  • Mental anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium (for family members)
  • Impairment
  • Emotional distress

These kinds of damages are often difficult to establish and require a judge or jury to place a specific value on the experience and suffering that an accident victim has experienced and will continue to experience through his or her lifetime. For this reason, a skilled attorney can often have a significant impact on the amount of non-economic damages a plaintiff can obtain. An attorney who is familiar with representing serious accident victims will be able to present a case in a way as to impress upon the jury the day-to-day physical and emotional impact of the injuries sustained.

Punitive Damages

In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded in addition to economic and non-economic damages. These kinds of damages are intended to punish the defendant for engaging in particularly wrongful conduct that results in injury and to deter other parties from engaging in similar conduct in the future. Common examples of when punitive damages may be awarded include drunk driving accidents or personal injury cases involving consumer products that a company knew to be dangerous.
