Multiple Record-Setting Verdicts Family firm that treats clients like family
Any injury to the brain has the potential to lead to devastating consequences for victims. This can include a range of short- and long-term injuries and disabilities that can lead to costly medical care. At Jacobs & Jacobs, we are here to help if you need a New Haven brain injury attorney by your side. If the careless or negligent actions of another individual or entity caused you or a loved one harm, we will use our resources to investigate the incident and help you recover the compensation you need.
An attorney devoted to your New Haven brain injury case will have many roles, the first of which will be gathering all of the evidence necessary to prove the liability of the other party. This can include any video surveillance of the incident, accident reports, statements from any witnesses, and more.
While gathering the evidence necessary to prove what happened in the case, an attorney will also ensure that their client is evaluated by a trusted medical professional who can treat their injuries and help provide an estimate for total expected losses. After an attorney has determined the liability and understands the economic and non-economic losses their client has sustained, they will pursue compensation from the insurance carriers or through a personal injury lawsuit.
According to the Family Caregiver Alliance and the Brain Injury Association of America, brain injury victims and their loved ones can expect lifetime medical costs reaching as high as $4 million. These costs are broken down into the needs that the injury victim and the family will have, including:
However, if we only look at medical costs, we do not see the whole picture. The reality is that brain injury victims and their family members undergo significant life changes. For the victim, this can include never being able to work again and being unable to participate in their daily activities. For family members, a brain injury can lead to significant emotional distress. These injuries can also place enormous financial burdens on the entire family.
If you or somebody you care about has sustained a brain injury caused by the careless or negligent actions of another individual, business, or entity, the team at Jacobs & Jacobs is ready to help. We have a track record of success handling catastrophic injury cases in New Haven and throughout Connecticut.
