Who is Liable for Your Brain Injury?
While all brain injuries are serious, not all qualify for compensation in a personal inury case. The injury must have been caused by someone else’s negligence or breach of duty to file a successful civil lawsuit. A plaintiff must prove duty, negligence, causation, and damages to have a successful case. A lawyer can help you delve into the details of your recent accident to determine whether another person, company, or government entity could be legally responsible for your damages. Possible defendants might include:
- A driver. Car-accident-related brain injuries could give rise to a claim against the at-fault driver. A business could be vicariously liable for the actions of a driver if the driver was on duty at the time of the crash. For example, a trucking company could be liable for a brain injury from a truck accident in Texas.
- An employer. Sustaining a brain injury while performing job-related duties could come down to employer liability if the employer could have done something to prevent the accident, such as provide proper safety gear. A coworker or third party might also share liability for workplace brain injury accidents.
- A product manufacturer. One might have a case against a product manufacturer or seller if it released a defective product that caused your brain injury. You might be able to file a claim against a seatbelt manufacturer, for example, if a defective belt opened in a collision and failed to prevent you from striking your head against the dashboard.
- A property owner. Brain injuries due to falls, elevator/escalator accidents, exposure to harmful chemicals, animal attacks, or acts of violence such as gunshots or knife wounds could point to property owner liability. It is the owner’s legal duty to keep visitors reasonably safe while on a premises.
- A doctor. Brain injuries relating to medical malpractice, such as birth injuries or surgical errors, could result in a lawsuit against a physician or health care facility. A lawyer can help you with these complex claims in Fort Worth.
Brain injury lawsuits hinge on the plaintiff’s ability to name a defendant, prove fault, and describe damages. It is the injured party’s burden of proof to show that he or she deserves financial compensation for the incident. Don’t bear this burden on your own. Put your claim in the hands of experienced personal injury lawyers. Trust the Law Offices of Tom Hall.
