The Hilliard, OH, TBI Accident Claims Process
There are certain steps we take to build a solid case on your behalf. These steps may include:
Investigating Your Case
Bressman Law fully investigates every case our team handles. We can investigate the cause of your accident, including identifying potentially liable parties. We collect all available evidence and analyze it to ensure we have the strongest case possible to support a settlement or verdict in your favor. As a part of our investigation, we may:
- Survey and document the scene of the accident
- Analyze video and photographs of the accident
- Request police reports, medical records, and other pertinent documents
- Work with accident reconstruction specialists when necessary
- Work with expert witnesses to understand your injuries and lasting effects
- Gather evidence of your damages
Filing Your Claim
After we complete our investigation, it is time to take action. We may approach the at-fault party’s insurance company before we file a personal injury lawsuit. This may be a business liability insurance provider, homeowner’s insurance, an auto liability carrier, or another insurance policy, depending on how the accident occurred.
When we file a claim with an insurance company for a TBI victim, we usually approach them with a demand letter. This letter “demands” a fair payout for your damages. Usually, this action triggers settlement negotiations, and we may be able to negotiate a fair settlement agreement for you at this point in the process.
Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
There are several reasons we may need to file a personal injury lawsuit and litigate your traumatic brain injury case. This includes:
- If the insurance company denies your claim
- If the insurance company refuses a fair settlement agreement
- If the liable party did not have insurance
- If there are other reasons based on the specifics of the case
If we do litigate your case, you can expect our team to walk you through every step of the process. We can answer any questions you may have promptly and fully, and address any concerns that arise.
Under Ohio’s statute of limitations, you have a certain amount of time to bring legal action from a traumatic brain injury. In most cases, you have two years from the day of the accident.
