best-phoenix-car-accident-lawyer-hutzler-law-badge

A brain injury can leave you struggling with long-term and short-term memory, changes to your ability to focus or concentrate, or even personality changes. At Hutzler Law, we cannot turn back the clock and help you avoid your brain injury, but we can help you pursue the compensation you deserve for those injuries.


The Personal Approach

At Hutzler Law, we offer a highly personalized approach to each case. You can connect and speak directly with your lawyers, which can help you feel much more confident about the progression of your claim and the details of your case.

Strong Cases, Strong Representation

Our attorneys build every client’s case from the moment the client accepts our representation. We focus on ensuring that we have the evidence and support necessary to manage a jury trial if needed. In many cases, this helps insurance companies to see that settling out of court could represent the company’s best interests, which, in many cases, makes it easier to convince the insurance company to settle.

Convenient Connection

Hutzler Law has a convenient location near Phoenix Indian Medical Center and Madison Park, making it easy for our clients to come to us for consultations and appointments. Furthermore, we offer virtual consultations for clients who cannot, for whatever reason, make it to an appointment in person. We aim to make it possible for our clients to get the legal representation they need.


Compensation in a Brain Injury Claim in Phoenix: What to Expect

If you suffered a brain injury in Phoenix due to another party’s negligence, you may have many questions about what compensation to expect and how you can pursue it. At Hutzler Law, we help our clients break down the compensation they should expect for those substantial injuries and the challenges they may face in the aftermath.

Medical Costs

A traumatic brain injury can bring with it immense medical costs. You may need regular brain scans and ongoing treatment to help you cope with the aftermath of your accident. In addition, many patients will require substantial occupational therapy to help them cope with the limitations they may experience as a direct result of the accident.

At Hutzler Law, we help our clients take a comprehensive look at the short-term and the long-term TBI treatment costs and how they may affect them.

Wage Loss

Often, patients with traumatic brain injuries may have difficulty returning to their usual work tasks. Traumatic brain injury can interfere with focus and concentration, short-term and even long-term memory. Many patients have a hard time dealing with their usual work responsibilities, especially if they work in fields that require a great deal of cognitive attention. Sometimes, patients may even have a hard time simply following instructions.

After a TBI, many workplaces will require that employees remain out of work until they can reasonably return. While some employers can modify their schedules and plans, including putting assistive measures in place to allow employees to return to work, others may lack that capacity. You may not return to your former field or profession if you suffered a severe traumatic brain injury.

At Hutzler Law, we help our clients look at their wage losses and include them as part of the compensation for a Phoenix traumatic brain injury.

Your Suffering

Traumatic brain injury can cause a great deal of suffering for many victims. You may find that your brain injury prevents you from taking care of yourself. Many people struggle with emotional regulation challenges following a traumatic brain injury. As a result, many patients may have difficulty dealing with the emotional impact of their injuries.

Furthermore, traumatic brain injuries may significantly impact your relationship with friends and loved ones. Many patients feel that they experience personality changes after the accident. Others may have difficulty interacting normally with people they enjoy spending time around.

Talk to your lawyer about the specific emotional challenges you have faced because of your traumatic brain injury. At Hutzler Law, we aim to help our clients recover compensation for all the losses they have faced because of traumatic brain injury, including those that may not have direct financial correlations.


Phoenix Brain Injuries: Common Causes

Brain injuries can occur for various reasons, often because of severe accidents. Construction accidents and auto accidents can quickly lead to permanent damage to the head and brain.

However, Phoenix may have an increased risk of brain injury for several reasons:

  • Swimming accidents carry the immense potential for brain injury. Often, Phoenix residents will go swimming to beat the heat. However, diving into unsafe or too-shallow water, particularly without adequate warning signs, can cause head injuries.
  • Phoenix may have a high rate of motorcycle riders. The Phoenix area boasts several motorcycle clubs, including Black Mountain Motorcycle Club and Phoenix Motorcycle Riders Group, that may attract people to the area. Motorcycle accidents have a high risk of causing head trauma.
  • Phoenix may have a higher than average rate of pedestrian-related injuries, including a high potential for brain injury. Cyclists may also have difficulty finding safe spaces to ride on the streets of Phoenix, raising the rate of serious injuries.

Determining who bears liability for a Phoenix brain injury can prove complicated. To identify the liable party in your accident, talk to the experienced attorneys at Hutzler Law, who can help look at exactly what led to your accident and what steps you need to take next.


Fighting the Insurance Company After a Phoenix Brain Injury

If you suffered a traumatic brain injury in Phoenix, you may find yourself fighting to get the full compensation you deserve for those injuries. In a perfect world, the insurance company would pay reasonable compensation whenever someone suffers serious injuries. However, insurance companies often try to minimize the compensation they have to pay out as much as possible, leading to substantial struggles for Phoenix traumatic brain injury victims.

At Hutzler Law, we treat every claim as though we expect it to go to court, including preparing a comprehensive claim that clearly displays liability for the incident and the full compensation the injured party likely deserves. As a result, many traumatic brain injury victims who choose to work with us find that they can more effectively navigate the battle with the insurance company to get the full compensation they may deserve for their injuries.

In addition, we help our clients understand the full compensation they deserve so they do not get taken in by low settlement offers or pushed into accepting liability for the incident.


What to Do After a Traumatic Brain Injury in Phoenix?

Following a Phoenix brain injury, you likely sought immediate medical attention. In some cases, like a car accident, you may have immediately reported your accident to the authorities. In other cases, you may need to make sure that you notify the authorities about what took place and start the process of investigating the entity that caused your accident.

Now what?

After a brain injury, protect your right to compensation as much as possible. Brain injuries can lead to enormous financial losses, which may make your life very difficult.

To protect yourself:

  • Keep a file with all your medical bills, both paid and unpaid. Make sure you keep a record of which bills you have already paid. Your lawyer can help you go through those bills to assess what compensation you might deserve for your injuries.
  • Follow the instructions issued by your medical care provider. You may need to avoid sports and other activities that could cause any further trauma to your head while recovering from your brain injury.
  • Talk to a lawyer as soon after the accident as possible. Often, you may need a lawyer to help you recover full compensation.
  • Keep a journal or other document that clearly lays out the struggles you face along your road to recovery after a brain injury. A lawyer can help you determine how to present those struggles to maximize your compensation.

Dealing with the insurance company on your own, especially after a serious accident, can make it very difficult to recover reasonable compensation for your brain injury. With Hutzler Law, on the other hand, you can maximize your odds of winning your claim.


FAQ

I should have worn a hard hat or helmet at the time of my accident but did not. Can I still file a traumatic brain injury claim?

Helmet use when riding a bicycle or motorcycle, or hard hat use at a construction site, can substantially reduce the risk of brain injury. However, failure to wear a helmet in your accident may not mean you cannot file a claim. At Hutzler Law, we help our clients establish how the other party’s negligence led to their accident and their brain injuries, which can, in many cases, make it easier to pursue the compensation you may deserve for those injuries.

How can I establish that someone else’s negligence caused my traumatic brain injury?

Working with a lawyer offers you the best chance of showing that another party’s negligence caused your brain injury. Negligence might include dangerous driving behaviors, ignoring the road rules, failing to maintain a property, or allowing objects to fall on a construction site.

The liable party in a brain injury claim generally failed to take adequate safety precautions or committed an act of negligence that led to your injuries. To file a brain injury claim, you must also establish that you suffered injuries due to the other party’s negligent actions. The possibility of a brain injury alone will not entitle you to compensation through an injury claim.

I did not need much medical attention for my brain injury, but it did cause ongoing difficulty in my life. Can I still file a claim?

A brain injury can cause many difficulties in your life. It may, for example, prevent you from working, which may lead to immense financial losses as you recover. In addition, you may suffer several complications to your personal life, including substantial loss of independence.

Talk to your lawyer about the losses you have faced and how you can best include them as part of an injury claim. While your financial losses will often serve as the foundation of your claim, you can also pursue compensation for the non-financial losses related to your injuries.
