Personal injury law is designed to compensate the victim, through money, for the losses they sustained as a result of the accident.
Brain Injury and Personal Injury Law
Traumatic brain injuries are mostly caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, attack by dogs, slip and fall accidents, and medical negligence. In some cases, TBI don’t arise from auto accidents alone; they arise from forms of medical negligence during surgery. For instance, a surgical instrument may be left in your body after surgery and can cause a brain injury.
Our brains are so sensitive that even the tiniest of forces generated from normal accidents are enough to change your life forever. In this blog post, we’ll have a look at brain injury and personal injury law. To find out more, kindly read along.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
TBI can be very difficult to prove because they are not visible to the naked eye. Another reason is that symptoms of TBI take long to manifest. Immediately after an accident, you should go for a medical examination to determine whether you have brain injury. Also, seek legal counsel to give you the advice and guidance you need for you to get fully compensated. Imaging medical equipment such as ultrasound, MRI’s, and CAT scans are used during the medical examination. They provide a visual verification of your internal brain injuries.
Personal Injury Law
Whatever the causes of your brain injuries may be, relax. The personal injury lawyer will cover all the parties involved in the accident if they sustain brain injuries. The people deemed responsible for causing your brain injuries will be held responsible and they must compensate you financially so that you can settle your medical bills, wage loss, suffering, pain, mental anguish and much more. If have never been involved in an accident and you know nothing about personal injury law, our attorneys specialize in all types of brain injuries and will give you all the assistance that you need.
In case both the complainant and defendant are found to be negligent, the degree of negligence will be compared to ensure that the injured party can be compensated accordingly. The compensation may be reduced if the complainant is found negligent and is responsible for her or his injuries. For instance, if the complainant was supposed to receive $200,000 as compensation and he or she is found to be 20% negligent or responsible for the injuries, the compensation will be reduced by 20%.

Negligent Security Law: How It Could Affect You
Property owners are legally responsible for the safety of visitors to their property. This is known as Negligent Security Law. If an individual is harmed while visiting the premises the owner of that property may be held liable for their injuries. That includes injuries sustained during third party attacks.
While there are many kinds of negligence that property owners can be accused of, negligent security cases only deal with safety issues that are related to third party attacks. To win damages, the injured party must prove that what happened to them could have been predicted and that the property owner did not act in a manner that would protect visitors. For example, the defense team of a person who was robbed on site might cite related crime statistics or a lack of security on the premises.
A claimant might say they were raped, attacked or injured on the property due to a broken lock or the lack of a security guard or insufficient lighting. An owner might not have inspected the premises on a regular basis and missed these security hazards. If negligence can be proven, the owner may be liable for damages.
However, establishing blame can be complicated and in many such cases, it is difficult to establish a property owner’s responsibility. That means the person making the claim may not be awarded any damages or only get a percentage of the damages they are suing for.
Negligent security law defines three types of visitors to a property. The first is someone invited to the property for business reasons. The second is a person on the property with the permission of the owner. The last type of visitor is someone who visited the location without the owner’s permission.
Whether or not the injured party was invited to the premises, they may still be liable for damages if the visitor was injured. In some jurisdictions, a trespasser may still be able to claim damages if they were injured while in the act of trespassing.
The legitimate visitor’s claim may earn more sympathy from the court but there have been instances where a trespasser won damages in a premise liability case. If the owners had invested in security measures to keep the trespasser out of their property, it was reasoned, they would not have to deal with his injuries.
Negligent security cases can be complicated. If you are involved in a case that involves negligent security, whether you are filing a claim against a property owner or defending a case against your property, it’s important to seek the counsel of a lawyer that specializes in negligent security law.
