Why Those With Traumatic Brain Injuries in Middletown Hire The Flood Law Firm

Christopher Flood, Brian Flood and Erica Pilicy-Ryan

Do your research anytime you hire a lawyer, but brain injury cases require even more thought than most. A brain injury can cause lasting (and perhaps lifelong) damages, so you should hire a law firm that inspires confidence in you.

Some notable reasons to hire a Middletown TBI lawyer from The Flood Law Firm include:

  • Our fearless legal approach: We never shy away from a case, including brain injury cases that are guaranteed to be difficult. In fact, we have accepted many case referrals from other law firms that were not equipped to handle a difficult case. When you need a law firm that will fight against all odds, choose The Flood Law Firm.
  • Our client-friendly fee structure: Our firm uses contingency fees, which benefit our clients. You will not pay us upfront or out of your own pocket. We will only receive a fee if you receive payment. This arrangement means that our firm’s incentives align directly with yours—we only get paid if you do.
  • Our dedication to clients: Our firm takes an investment in our clients. We can help you receive medical care, arrange vehicle repairs, and ensure your post-accident recovery. Your lawyer will understand your case details, and you will sense that The Flood Law Firm wants what is best for you.
  • Our preparedness for trial: While a settlement is the most common outcome for brain injury cases, not every case settles fairly out of court. We will prepare your case for trial as we attempt to reach a settlement. This way, our team will be ready no matter which path your case follows.
  • Our commitment to excellent service: We go above and beyond for our clients. When you send an email, text, or call your lawyer, expect an immediate (or quick) response. We show compassion and patience to every client and strive to make you feel like family.
  • Our familiarity with Middletown: Our firm established our Middletown office in a beautiful historic building on Washington Street between High Street and Pearl Street. We are a part of the community, we know the local courts well, and we are ready to lead your case today.

Our Connecticut brain injury lawyers have helped many clients get back on their feet. We intend to secure the entire financial recovery you deserve, not a dollar less.

The Realities of Living with a Brain Injury Can Be Immensely Difficult

Middletown TBI Lawyers

Our attorneys understand the challenging realities that result from brain injuries. While each injury and set of symptoms is unique, brain injuries always make life harder. A brain injury can lead to:

High Healthcare Costs

Those who suffer brain injuries may need:

  • Immediate medical attention
  • Long-term medical care
  • Lifelong rehabilitation
  • Medical equipment
  • In-home caregiver services

Medical bills can emerge immediately and mount quickly after a brain injury. This may cause financial stress that does not go away unless liable parties cover your medical costs.

Unemployment (or Limited Employment)

Brain injuries can prevent victims from working, either temporarily or permanently. In some cases, a brain injury victim must reduce working hours or change professional roles to accommodate the effects of their injury.

Partial or total unemployment is, for most, financially devastating. Unemployment may also contribute to the psychological harm of a brain injury.

Lost Quality of Life

A brain injury can diminish one’s quality of life in several ways. From financial pressure to personality and mood changes to the need for frequent healthcare, a brain injury can devastate you and your family.

Our Middletown personal injury lawyers understand the consequences of brain injuries. We will evaluate the toll that your injury has had on your life.

We Will Seek Compensation for All of Your Recoverable Damages

Brian Flood Super Lawyers Badge

As brain injury lawyers, we categorize damages into specific categories. Your recoverable damages may include:

Medical Bills

Someone with a brain injury requires immediate (and often extensive) medical care, which may include:

  • Ambulance transport
  • Emergency medical care
  • Surgery (which may be necessary to relieve pressure from an injury, reconstruct a fractured skull, or achieve other healthcare goals)
  • Hospitalization
  • Medications

Every brain injury victim has different medical needs. Our team will consult medical professionals to identify your healthcare needs and determine the cost of your medical care.

Lost Income and Other Professional Harm

If your brain injury prevents you from working, you may lose:

  • Your income (whether you earn an hourly wage, per-project fee, or salary)
  • Opportunities to earn performance bonuses
  • Opportunities for pay raises
  • Employer-provided benefits
  • The fulfillment you get from being employed

The nature and severity of your injuries will likely determine the extent of your professional damages.

Injury-Related Property Expenses

Caring for a brain injury may require several property-related expenses, which may include:

  • A vehicle that accommodates a wheelchair
  • Handrails, ramps, and other disability-related home improvements
  • A motorized wheelchair

Your Middletown TBI lawyer from The Flood Law Firm will include property expenses in your lawsuit or claim.

Caregiver Costs

Severe brain injuries may cause lasting physical and psychological damage. This may require the victim to have in-home caregiver services. In some cases, a loved one will help care for the brain injury victim and may have to quit their job to do so.

We will calculate the cost of your immediate and long-term care costs.

Pain and Suffering (and Related Treatment)

The effects of brain injuries can be physically, psychologically, and emotionally devastating.

Pain and suffering from a brain injury can include:

  • Acute physical pain
  • Long-term physical pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood and personality changes
  • Sleep problems
  • Suicidal thoughts and attempts
  • Substance misuse problems
  • Loss of physical and cognitive abilities

The Flood Law Firm works alongside mental health experts. These experts can evaluate your pain and suffering, recommend and arrange treatment, and help us value the cost of your care.

A Loved One’s Passing

If your loved one suffered a fatal brain injury, please accept our firm’s condolences. Our Middletown wrongful death lawyers lead lawsuits for clients so they can grieve and be with loved ones.

Those affected by fatal brain injuries in Middletown may deserve compensation for:

  • Their pain and suffering (including grief)
  • The decedent’s pain and suffering
  • Funeral costs
  • Burial or cremation expenses
  • Loss of the decedent’s financial support
  • Loss of the decedent’s household services
  • Loss of the decedent’s companionship, support, and other non-economic benefits

We will lead a wrongful death lawsuit from start to finish.

What Types of Brain Injuries Can You Seek Compensation For?

Our attorneys work with medical experts to evaluate our clients’ brain injuries. While each injury is unique, there are a few ways to classify a brain injury, including:

The Severity of the Injury

Medical professionals diagnose brain injuries based on initial symptoms – not the long-term prognosis. Even a brain injury your medical professional deemed “mild” at first can cause catastrophic health consequences and damages for the victim.

Often, only time will tell how severe the effects of your brain injury might be. Even brain injuries that heal can still have costly effects on your life for weeks or months. The most severe injuries can cause permanent brain damage and disabilities.

The Type of Injury

The two primary categories of brain injuries are:

  • Penetrating brain injuries: When an object penetrates the skull and makes contact with the brain, this is a penetrating brain injury.
  • Non-penetrating brain injuries: When an object does not penetrate the skull but a brain injury still happens, it is a non-penetrating brain injury.

Any traumatic brain injury can be serious. While these categories tell us important information about injuries, they do not tell the whole story. Our Middletown TBI lawyers work with medical professionals to gather all relevant information about our clients’ injuries.

We Represent Those Who Suffer Brain Injuries in a Variety of Ways

When negligence causes a brain injury, liable parties must cover the cost of their damages. If someone does not act reasonably and causes a brain injury as a consequence, they are negligent.

How Our Middletown Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers Will Fight for Your Compensation

The Flood Law Firm team will manage every detail of your TBI case in Middletown.

We will evaluate your unique needs and create a personalized case plan, and our duties will likely include:

  • Securing evidence related to the TBI: Whether you were in a car accident, work accident, or suffered another harmful event, we will gather all relevant evidence. Witness accounts, video footage of a harmful accident, and expert testimony may all benefit your case.
  • Documenting your damages: Your TBI attorney will obtain medical bills and records, past income statements (to prove lost income), your account of pain and suffering, and any other proof of your damages.
  • Calculating the cost of your damages (and setting a settlement target): Our team will calculate the cost of your current and future damages. When we calculate the total cost of your damages, we will know the value of a fair settlement.
  • Negotiating a settlement: The Flood Law Firm will be responsible for securing your settlement. We will negotiate with liable parties, including an insurance company or civil defense lawyer. Our attorneys are tireless negotiators. Once we know how much money you deserve, we won’t rest until you’ve received that amount.
  • Overseeing all case-related communications: We lead all case-related communications. This way, we can protect your rights, ensure that your case moves forward promptly, and maintain control over every aspect of your case.

If going to trial is the right decision for you, we will go to trial. Our firm has recovered many jury verdicts for clients, and we don’t shy away from court cases.

We Deal With Insurers so You Don’t Have To

Navigating insurance companies is one of the primary challenges of brain injury cases. Insurers cover a wide range of harmful events, from truck accidents to slip and fall accidents. However, insurers do not always pay the compensation they should willingly.

We may need to overcome several insurance-related challenges, including:

  • Denial of your insurance claim
  • Lowball settlement offers
  • Refusal to cover specific damages
  • Delays in processing your claim
  • Hardball negotiation tactics

Insurance companies often have experienced lawyers who fight against claims like yours. With The Flood Law Firm leading your case, you will have your own lawyers fighting for you.

Steps Everyone Should Take After Suffering a Traumatic Brain Injury

Though each brain injury and case differs, every brain injury victim should:

  • Get extensive medical care: You should seek medical attention to protect your health and document your brain injury. Keep all records related to your brain injury.
  • Find a trustworthy lawyer: Once you hire a lawyer (perhaps from The Flood Law Firm), you can focus on your recovery without worrying about your case.

Our law firm will guide you through this difficult, unfamiliar period in your life.
