Civil Claims for Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most devastating injuries a person can experience after an accident. Not only are your physical injuries debilitating, but the emotional and financial strain of such an injury can be traumatizing in itself.
Fortunately, when someone else is responsible for causing your injuries, you may be able to bring them to justice by filing a personal injury claim in Boston. Continue reading to learn more about the types of accidents that frequently cause brain injuries and what it means to file a civil claim for a brain injury in Massachusetts.
Accidents That Cause Brain Injuries
There are many different types of accidents that are capable of causing traumatic brain damage. Some common types of accidents include motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-falls, medical malpractice, work injuries, construction accidents, premises liability accidents, and dog bites.
If you have been injured in any of the previously mentioned types of accidents or another type of accident, you can reach out to a personal injury lawyer in Boston for help obtaining full compensation for your losses.
What It Means to File a Civil Claim
Filing a civil claim is much different than criminal charges the liable party may face. In a civil claim, you (with the help of your lawyer) are seeking maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered as a result of the liable party’s negligence. The burden of proof is much different in civil versus criminal cases; it is much easier to establish culpability in a civil case.
