Our TBI Attorneys Have over 30 Years of Experience

Experience matters!

Many personal injury law firms refuse to represent victims with traumatic brain injuries. These law firms lack the knowledge, resources, and legal skills that are necessary to litigate complex personal injury cases against powerful insurance companies. Our traumatic brain injury attorneys bring over 30 years of combined experience to the table, ensuring that you have a knowledgeable and skilled team fighting for your rights.

How a Traumatic Injury Lawyer Helps You

A Hartford, CT traumatic injury lawyer can maximize the value of your brain injury claim!

Many personal injury lawyers only seek quick settlements to avoid the expense of a trial. Since insurance companies know this, they often only make minimal settlement offers that do not properly compensate injured victims. The traumatic brain injury lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm can retain expert witnesses such as neurologists, psychiatrists, and engineers and use their litigation skills in court in order to maximize the value of your case.

Evidence Needed to Prove Fault in a Traumatic Brain Injury Case

To obtain financial compensation for traumatic brain injuries, you must prove the opposing party committed a negligent act that caused your personal injuries. In order to prove your case, a preponderance of the evidence — that is, 51%, is required. To achieve this, you will need evidence such as photos, witness statements, surveillance footage, and medical records. 

The Hartford traumatic brain injury team at the Carter Mario Law Firm is well-versed in gathering the evidence needed to prove fault in serious personal injury cases.

What Counts as a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A headache following a car accident is not a traumatic brain injury. When a victim experiences a head impact, which causes reduced brain function, they have suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Our Hartford personal injury attorneys can provide clarity on the definition and scope of traumatic brain injuries to help you handle the legal nuances of your specific personal injury claim.

Types of Brain Injury Cases We Handle

As noted by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes, traumatic brain injuries come in two forms: penetrating (an object pierces the skull) and non-penetrating (an injury results from an impact) that can range in intensity from mild to severe. The Carter Mario Law Firm has practice in handling a wide range of brain injury cases, from mild concussions to severe traumatic brain injuries, so no matter the combination of your personal circumstances, our experience is ready to cater to you and your individual case. 

Mild TBIs

As explained by the CDC, a concussion is the most common form of a mild traumatic brain injury. Mild TBI victims often experience painful symptoms such as insomnia, behavioral changes, and an inability to tolerate bright lights. Our dedicated TBI lawyers in Hartford have a strong track record in handling the details of mild TBI cases and will fight to ensure you receive proper compensation for your injuries.

Moderate TBIs

Unlike mild TBIs, moderate TBIs are caused by hard impacts. Moderate TBIs can cause depression, amnesia, and impaired cognitive abilities. Our Hartford TBI lawyers have the knowledge to build a strong case on your behalf with the goal of getting you the compensation needed for the ongoing medical treatment and support of your head injuries.

Severe TBIs

Victims who suffer severe TBIs sadly often find their lives permanently changed. Assuming a severe TBI is not fatal, it can leave a victim in a permanent vegetative state or at a higher risk of suffering a stroke. Our brain injury lawyers in Hartford, CT are here to advocate for you, pursuing the maximum compensation to address medical expenses, rehabilitation, and the profound impact a severe TBI can have on your life.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Understanding the common causes of brain injuries is crucial in building a solid legal case. Our team of traumatic brain injury attorneys is well-versed in handling cases related to various causes of TBIs. You can trust us to personalize our approach to the specific details of your brain accident case to ensure you receive the legal support you need.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Property owners are legally required to keep their property safe for potential visitors. Despite this requirement, victims suffer injuries, including TBIs, in slip and fall accidents. Our Hartford personal injury attorneys will investigate the circumstances of your case in order to find evidence that the property owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition that caused your fall.

Vehicule Accidents

Car accidents occur with alarming frequency throughout Connecticut. In 2022, Hartford recorded 5,338 motor vehicle accidents. Due to the speed and kinetic energy involved in car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents, it’s common for victims to suffer traumatic brain injuries.

Sports Injuries

Participating in sporting activities carries inherent risks, including the potential for brain injuries. In certain sports, such as lacrosse and football, the frequent player-on-player contact means that athletes have a higher chance of suffering traumatic brain injuries. If you’ve suffered a TBI due to athletics-related activities, our Hartford TBI lawyers will work tirelessly to protect your rights and pursue appropriate compensation.

Violence

Victims of violence, whether it be a fight or case of assault, may experience traumatic brain injuries with lasting consequences. Our compassionate legal team is dedicated to helping you seek justice and compensation for the harm you’ve endured.

Forceps and Vacuum Extractor Brain Injuries

Instead of traditional childbirth, some doctors advise mothers to undergo a vacuum extraction. This procedure involves a medical professional placing a suction cup on the baby’s head while it is in the womb in order to pull/guide it through the birth canal. If performed improperly, this procedure can result in a medical malpractice accident and cause birth-related brain injuries such as:

  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Brain compression
  • Stroke
  • Contusion
  • Brain bleeding

Damages You Could Receive for a Traumatic Brain Injury

Understanding the potential damages you can claim for a traumatic brain injury is crucial in pursuing a fair settlement. You can seek compensation under Connecticut law (52-572h) for your economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, and non-economic damages, like physical pain, suffering, and mental distress. 

Average Settlements Typical for Brain Injuries in Hartford

Unfortunately, there is no way to predict the exact value of a brain injury case, due to the immense variance in their individual nature. However, our Hartford personal injury attorneys have previously negotiated settlements for brain injuries ranging from $2.4 to $3.3 million. You can trust our Hartford TBI lawyers to fight for the best possible outcome for you.

Long-Term Treatment May Be Needed

TBIs can cause victims to suffer life-altering disabilities. Many TBI victims require long-term medical care to recover and rebuild their lives following the personal injury accident. As the cost of care can push victims into bankruptcy, it is essential to retain a seasoned Hartford personal injury lawyer.

Factors Affecting the Value of Your Case

Various factors influence the value of a TBI case in Connecticut. Specifically, the severity of your brain injury and the cost of your medical care can affect the value of your personal injury claim. Additionally, the value of your personal injury case will increase if you are unable to work due to your traumatic brain injury.

How Long a Settlement Takes for a Brain Injury Case

We understand the urgency of obtaining a settlement for your brain injury. Stated simply, the severity of your injury, along with the length of your medical treatment, can increase the amount of time it will take to resolve your case. However, the Carter Mario Law Firm’s streamlined process and legal skills will allow us to work efficiently to ensure a fair and timely resolution to your case.

Traumatic Brain Injury FAQs

Does not wearing proper PPE affect my brain injury case?

Your safety is paramount.

Not wearing proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can affect your brain injury case. Under Connecticut’s comparative negligence statute (52-572h), you can still recover as long as you’re not more than 50% at fault. However, any judgment you receive at trial will be reduced based on your level of negligence.

Should I accept a settlement offer for my brain injury from someone else’s insurance company?

Accept nothing without first speaking with a Hartford traumatic brain injury attorney.

Understanding settlement offers can be tricky, especially when dealing with someone else’s insurance company. Our brain injury accident attorneys will review the offer and assess its fairness. We will then advise you on whether to accept a settlement offer from another party’s insurance. 

Who can be held liable for my traumatic brain injury?

Determining liability is crucial.

Our attorneys have the experience to identify any responsible parties, whether they are individuals, entities, or organizations. We will vigorously pursue justice on your behalf and will hold accountable those responsible for your brain injury. You can trust us to guide you through the details of your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.

When should I contact a lawyer after a brain injury?

Time is of the essence.

Contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your case is handled with the urgency and attention it deserves. Under Connecticut law (52-584), you only have two years to file a lawsuit. Our team of personal injury lawyers will ensure your case is filed within this strict statute of limitations.
