Why Hire a Lawyer for Your Brain Injury Case
Our experience with brain injury cases has shown us just how devastating such injuries can be. If you’ve suffered a brain injury, you may:
- Be suffering significant emotional stress
- Have physical symptoms that disrupt your daily life
- Require rest and avoidance of stimuli for your brain to heal
- Experience cognitive limitations
Brain injuries are not an ailment that you should simply work through. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (p.8) explains that your recovery will depend directly on how you take care of yourself after your brain injury. It adds that trying to “tough it out” when you recognize brain injury symptoms will only make your health worse.
In other words, trying to handle a lawsuit or insurance claim may be detrimental to your health. This is one significant reason why we recommend hiring an attorney from Hammack Law Firm.

- A team of experienced attorneys

Proving a Brain Injury Can Be Difficult
When you break a bone, suffer a bruise, or have severe burns, the nature of the injury is straightforward and difficult to dispute. However, because of the intangible nature of a brain injury, it can be harder to identify and diagnose.
In general, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) typically happens when there is a strong impact or jolt to the head or body, according to Mayo Clinic. If you are suffering any of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from a brain injury:
- Difficulty maintaining balance
- Problems speaking
- Sleeping too much or too little
- Feeling drowsy or fatigued
- Feeling nauseous
- Confusion or disorientation
- Vision or hearing issues
- Depression or anxiety
- Difficulty with memory
- Difficulty concentrating
If any of these symptoms match what you are feeling, you should see a medical professional as soon as possible. Seeing a doctor will not only make sure that you receive the care you may need—it can also help build a record of your injuries for the purpose of bringing a personal injury claim.
If you end up pursuing compensation, you may need to work with a few different expert witnesses to help the jury understand the extent of your damages and how they were related to the accident. An Anderson brain injury lawyer from Hammack Law Firm can find experts to support your claim when we represent you.

Establishing Negligence in a Brain Injury Case
If your brain injury arose because of a car accident or some other personal injury incident, you can bring a claim for negligence to recover compensation for your damages.
In order to win your case, you may need to prove the following four elements of liability:
Duty of Care
You must first show that the party who caused the accident owed you a duty to act with reasonable care.
Breach of Duty
Next, you must show that the party who caused your accident failed to live up to their duty of care.
There must be a causal link between the other party’s failure to act with the right duty of care and the injuries you experienced. If some other factor was the main cause of your injuries, then the other party may not be required to compensate you. This is one of the most important aspects of your claim.
The last element of negligence involves proving the damages that you suffered as a result of the accident, as well as the value of those damages. Hammack Law Firm can help you collect evidence of the responsible party’s liability.
