Who Is Accountable in Your Marion Brain Injury Case?
It may be important to you to hold the other party directly accountable for your damages. We can understand. It may help you get a sense of justice and even a sense of closure.
The best way to hold the other party directly accountable is by suing them for your damages. Our lawyer will support this option if you’re considering it. Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC will help you filing a claim and a lawsuit. The claim may be enough for you to recover all of your due damages, but we will always be ready to take your case to court.
Regardless of the options, our lawyer will have to identify the party accountable for your damages and show proof. You may be entirely convinced a motorist is solely responsible for your injuries, but they may share liability with another, like a rideshare company. It could even be another party you had not even considered.
Identifying the Likely Accountable Party
To identify the party (or parties) that’s most likely accountable for your damages, our lawyer will seek out evidence that implicates them. Depending on your kind of case, this evidence could be vehicle data recorder information, worksite camera footage, witness cell phone photos, and/or other evidence. Then, our lawyer will show this evidence to the other party’s insurer or the judge.
Proving the Party’s Accountability
Finally, our lawyer will also show the insurer or judge precisely why the other party was negligent and is therefore accountable. For instance, if the other party was a motorist who drove drunk, our lawyer will show that:
- The motorist is expected to drive responsibly
- But, the motorist was drunk, and his driving was impaired
- Their irresponsible actions led to a wreck
- The wreck resulted in your damages, which you should be compensated for
What Else Can Our Marion Brain Injury Lawyer Do for You?
Today, you may need much more than compensation for your losses. You might also need further medical attention. If so, our lawyer may be able to refer you to a doctor who specializes in the kind of health care you need. This doctor can provide a written statement or spoken testimony for your case, which could be invaluable.
You may also need to file a social security disability claim or a workers’ compensation claim. If so, our lawyer can do this for you, ensuring precision and accuracy. Our lawyer may even be able to demand or negotiate certain damages/benefits for you.
Also, while our lawyer works for you, you won’t have to pay any fees. Instead, you’ll simply pay our lawyer a small, preapproved portion of your recovery amount. Better still, you won’t pay our lawyer anything if they don’t recover any compensation for you. This is called a contingency-fee arrangement, and our lawyer will offer it so you can easily afford legal services no matter what your financial situation is.
