What Will A Lawyer Prove In My Closed Head Injury Case

What Will A Lawyer Prove In My Closed Head Injury Case

If you or a loved one has sustained a head injury, whether at the hands of medical malpractice or simply due to a shopkeeper's or property owner's negligence, you may need legal help to secure the funds you need to pay the medical bills. A medical malpractice attorney or other lawyer can give you the assistance and voice you need to fill out all the necessary forms, gather all the proof-related documentation and present a cogent, coherent case before a judge.

Building A Case: From Cause To Effect

Your lawyer will prove a statement that consists of three separate pieces of proof. These pieces are:

  • You or a loved one suffered a closed head injury requiring a certain amount of legal compensation.
  • Another party behaved negligently or with will to cause harm. This negligence can be professional, as with medical malpractice, or it can simply be the a failure to adhere to the responsibilities of being a property owner. Your lawyer will have to prove this negligence.
  • The negligence of the accused party led, directly or indirectly, to the closed head injury about which the case is being prosecuted.

These three pieces of proof constitute the guilty statement that, if proven before judge and jury, will lead to you receiving compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, legal fees, and any other financial injury you sustained as a result of the closed head injury and its ramifications.

How The Lawyer Will Build The Case

In order to prove your closed head injury case, your lawyer will need documentation of hospital examinations to show that you have, indeed, suffered a head injury. This information will show the judge and jury the level of injury you sustained, likely causes of the injury and type of injury.

To prove negligence on the part of a doctor or property owner will be the most difficult part of the case. This will require witnesses to the incident as well as past events, character assessments and any past issues. Your lawyer will need to "dig up dirt" on the other party.

Finally, to prove that the negligence led to the head injury, your lawyer will have to prove that you were not doing any other activity that might have caused it at the time of the injury. Dates and times will have to line up, and your lawyer will have to construct a story for the courtroom.

If you have suffered a closed head injury, it may feel like second nature to you that you should get compensation. However, there is a difference between knowing that something happened to you and proving it in court. Proof can be difficult to establish. Contact a closed head injury lawyer for assistance today!
