There are many events that can cause a traumatic brain injury such as an assault, a car accident, a motorcycle accident, a fall, a defective product, a farming accident, or a medical error such as a delay in diagnosing a stroke or brain bleed. The first step a brain injury lawyer takes is to analyze how the brain injury was sustained and who may be at fault. This analysis will guide the attorney as to who may be held legally responsible for your injuries. Additionally, your attorney will obtain your relevant medical records to analyze the extent of your injuries. As part of this analysis, your injury lawyer may speak to your treating doctors and retain medical experts to assist in determining the impact that the brain injury will have on your life in the future.
