Being compensated for an injury is not on anybody’s bucket list. While being able to receive money from misfortune is certainly something that you would want to experience after the fact, it is still important that you do your best to prevent getting a brain injury. But, accidents happen. As much as you do not want to fall victim when such accidents happen, you would have no choice but to do your best when it comes to asking for compensation.
With that in mind, it is time that you should check out the tips that we here at Haque Legal would want to share with you. How do you claim your traumatic brain injury compensation? What are the things that you need to do? Let us look at the best practices.
The Things You Should Do
There are certain things that you can do to make sure that you get proper compensation for the traumatic brain injury that you suffered.
Make sure that you get your treatment as early as possible.
The most important thing that you need to do is to make sure that you get treatment as early as possible. In most of the cases that we have handled, we have seen a failure on the part of the victim to get treatment because he thinks that his injury is just minor or that you can handle it on your own and at home.
Let us just repeat that you have just been in a car accident and you need to make sure that you are properly protected in terms of what you need and in terms of making sure that you have all of your physical faculties available.
Make sure that you file your claim with the assistance of a lawyer.
If you are already in the process of filing your claim. make sure that you do so with the assistance and the help of the right lawyer. A lawyer will be able to protect you from everything that you need protection from especially since you have just been in a car accident.
The period for filing your claim is one year from the time of the accident and this is enough time for you to get a lawyer after the accident and make sure that he would assist you when you are filing for compensation.
Do not accept any settlement until your lawyer has seen it.
We always say that you should never take the first offer that the insurance company would give you. Unless you are assisted by a lawyer who knows what he or she is doing you should see to it that you still check your rights and that you always do what you can for you to at least get the right compensation.
How Do You Claim?
You can file a claim by applying for the no-fault benefits with the responsible auto insurance company that is required to pay your claim. Generally, there is more than one insurance company that could pay for your needs during the time of the accident. You probably have your health insurance and your no-fault insurance company. The coordination of benefits and priority rules would apply here. We have discussed this in the article that you would find in our blog as well.
Can I still sue for TBI after a car accident?
One of the common questions that we receive coming from trienes is whether or not they can still sue for a traumatic brain injury after a car accident if they have already received compensation. Generally, it depends on the kind of insurance that you have. It depends on the many other aspects of how you filed your claim or when you found your claim and all of those requirements.
If you want to, you should get a lawyer to be able to assess whether you can sue and who you can sue in case of a car collision in Michigan.
What if the victim cannot sue because of physical inability?
If the victim can no longer file a lawsuit or is physically unable to do so because he is recuperating, his representative and legal guardian can do the suit in his place.
In Case of Doubt
In case of doubt, keep in mind that it is your no-fault insurance provider who would ultimately pay for your medical bills. As long as you get unlimited or no-limit coverage, you should be properly covered at a time when you need the best kind of coverage for your health and safety.
