It’s Not Brain Surgery!


Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI is probably the most severe injury that can be sustained and not surprisingly the most costly injury a person can endure.  For those reasons, insurance companies want to settle these claims as soon as possible to minimize their liability and financial exposure.   A quick settlement of these cases is not in your best interest since you may not even know the full extent of your injuries so early in the process.  The long-term prognosis of a traumatic brain injury may not be known for many months (maybe years) following the incident, so the proper diagnosis is of the utmost importance in these instances.

Evaluating the monetary compensation due and owed to a victim suffering from a traumatic brain injury is very complex and involves many factors, including nature, extent and severity of the TBI, the pain and suffering sustained as a result of the TBI, the long-term medical costs, the age and life expectancy of the victim, the earning capacity or earning potential of the victim based upon his or her education or profession as well as many other factors.  Our Firm will hire vocational and rehabilitation experts to help determine the monetary value of your injury. These evaluations are extremely important and can cost thousands of dollars.  Our Firm advances all costs in all of our personal injury cases.

The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Utah is generally four (4) years from the date of the accident.  There are some circumstances, however, in which that time limit can be as short as one (1) year, so it is important to obtain representation right away. If you fail to file a lawsuit against the responsible party within this time frame you lose your right to recover any of your damages.
