Brain & Head Injury Lawyers in Sioux Falls

Modern science has made great strides in the diagnosis and treatment of brain injuries. We see and hear about it most often in sports. But with each advancement, medical science uncovers more mystery.

Sioux Falls TBI Attorneys

Few medical professionals would argue with the fact that the brain is the most complex and least understood organ in the human body. As such, the nature of brain injuries, and the prognosis for recovery, are seldom certain. Immediate consultation with an experienced head injury lawyer in Sioux Falls is the best thing you can do to protect your rights and the well-being of you and your family.

When we think of brain injury, we often think of traumatic brain injury, which can result in either an open or closed head injury. However, there are many other serious types of brain injury, including:

  • Mild head injury
  • Concussion
  • Repetitive head injuries
  • Brain aneurysm
  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Poisoning
  • Infection

Brain Injury Compensation

While we most often hear about it in connection with sports, the reality is that falls and motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of traumatic head injuries. Serious and debilitating head injuries are among the most costly, often requiring life-time care. However, even more moderate injuries can have significant negative impact on quality of life, some of which might not be known for weeks or months after injury, including:

  • Seizures
  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Mood changes or mood swings
  • Weakness or numbness in extremities
  • Loss of coordination
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Depression or anxiety

The law allows victims to be compensated for both economic losses, like lost wages and medical bills, as well as non-economic losses, like pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment. However, brain injury damages are complicated by several factors:

  • Uncertain prognosis
  • Determining cost of likely future medical care, disability or other consequences
  • Accurately determining value of both non-economic and economic losses

Additionally, many of the consequences of head injuries are difficult to prove, and thus subject to vigorous debate by insurance carriers looking to lower the cost of a claim. While no less real for victims, such damages must be proven by evidence, often in consultation with leading medical and financial professionals capable of proving such claims in court. In the most serious cases, where obvious catastrophic loss exists, insurance carriers may be quick to offer the policy limits, telling victims that is the maximum amount available. However, signing waivers or other paperwork can seriously limit or even eliminate a victim’s rights to collect additional damages to which they may be otherwise entitled. At-fault insurance carriers will assign your claim to a team of professional adjusters, investigators and legal and medical experts whose job is to limit your ability to collect. At Hoy Law, we believe victims and families deserve to be on equal footing and should have immediate access to experienced legal help without worrying about legal costs.
