Dolman Law Group: Help for Tallahassee Brain Injury Victims

Dealing with a head injury can interfere with many areas of your life. We cannot restore what you lost at Dolman Law Group, but we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve for those injuries.

Take a look at our previous claim results.

  • $3.85 million for a truck accident resulting in brain injury
  • $3.2 million for a truck accident resulting in brain injury
  • $750 thousand for traumatic brain injury
  • $500 thousand for brain injury and neck pain

Our past claim results cannot guarantee the results you will obtain for your brain injury claim. However, our experienced team of Tallahassee personal injury attorneys will help fight aggressively to help you get the full compensation you may deserve for your injuries.

We Have the Resources to Fight the Big-Name Insurance Companies

Smaller firms may lack the resources to compete against big-name insurance companies and organizations. Those big-name providers may fight aggressively to reduce the compensation they have to pay out for your injuries.

At Dolman Law Group, we understand the difficulty that often accompanies those claims, and we have the resources to help our clients get better results from those insurance companies. We will aggressively represent our clients, pursuing every possible avenue of compensation to provide them with better overall legal representation and assistance.

We Want You to Feel Supported Through Your Claim

At Dolman Law Group, we have seen the uncertainty that often accompanies severe injuries like a traumatic brain injury. You may have a long road to recovery ahead of you and severe limitations that may linger for a lifetime. While we cannot help with your physical recovery, we can help you pursue the financial compensation you need to support that recovery and provide you with funds to manage your life in the meantime.

Our attorneys remain available to our clients, including offering virtual meetings to make the claim process as easy on you as possible. Furthermore, we provide compassionate support at every step of the claim process, ensuring that you feel supported throughout this difficult time.

Compensation for Tallahassee Brain Injuries

You may have several expenses in the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury. You may know that you deserve compensation through a personal injury claim that will help you cover some of those bills but not know how much compensation you can reasonably expect.

At Dolman Law Group, we aim to ensure our clients know how much compensation to expect for their injuries and how to fight for that compensation reasonably. We cannot guarantee the compensation you will recover for your traumatic brain injury.

Many factors may influence the compensation you recover, including:

  • Who caused your traumatic brain injury. In most cases, you will find yourself dealing with an insurance company as you pursue compensation for your injuries. The insurance policy that covers the liable party may influence how much compensation you can acquire for your injuries.
  • What expenses you have faced as a direct result of your brain injury. In most cases, you can expect your expenses to heavily influence the compensation you can claim since a brain injury claim intends to compensate you for the losses you have faced due to someone else's negligence.
  • The extent of your suffering and the full damages you faced because of your injuries. Frequently, a brain injury can lead to immense suffering. While some people may recover quickly from a brain injury, others may have a long road to recovery. The suffering you face may have a heavy influence on your claim.

At Dolman Law Group, we help break compensation for your injuries into several key categories that define the damages, including the financial and non-financial damages you may have suffered due to your traumatic brain injury.

Compensation for Medical Expenses Related to Your TBI

In addition to the initial cost of medical treatment, including emergency medical care and, if needed, surgery to help treat excessive pressure on the brain, you may have ongoing medical expenses related to the treatment of spinal cord injury. Some patients may need considerable occupational therapy to help them learn to cope with the challenges of a traumatic brain injury.

For example, an occupational therapist may help you learn how to manage the short-term memory loss associated with your injuries or how to cope with the challenges associated with emotional regulation after your accident. You may also need considerable psychological therapy to help you cope with the emotional ups and downs frequently related to TBI.

Compensation for Wage Loss Due to Your Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury can make it very difficult for you to return to work. Many people with brain injuries struggle with the focus and short-term memory needed to complete normal work tasks. They may have a hard time, for example, remembering instructions issued by a boss or dealing with the emotional challenges presented by a customer complaint.

Frequently, that means considerable time out of work while you recover from or learn to cope with your injuries. Your employer may make modifications that make it possible for you to get back to work as soon as possible, or you may have to stay out of work for longer due to your employer's requirements.

In some cases, you may lose the ability to return to work after your accident. Your brain injury may make it impossible to take care of your usual work tasks or leave you struggling to deal with customer interactions. Your employer might be unable to bring you back to work with your injuries.

At Dolman Law Group, we help our clients pursue the full compensation they deserve for missing wages or lost earning potential that they suffered as a direct result of their injuries.

Compensation for Your Suffering

A traumatic brain injury can cause physical pain, including headaches, and considerable emotional anguish. Many people struggle with the aftereffects of TBI, including losing their independence or the loss of creativity or reasoning skills that may accompany a serious traumatic brain injury.

At Dolman Law Group, we understand that you may face more than just physical suffering as you recover from your traumatic brain injury or learn to cope with the sometimes ongoing challenges related to your injuries. We will help you lay out the suffering you faced because of your accident and injuries and pursue compensation for those losses, which can provide you with funds to receive additional support while you recover or rebuild your life.

TBI in Tallahassee

Tallahassee residents and visitors may see several hazards that may increase the risk of traumatic brain injury.

Tourist Behaviors

Tallahassee sees an average of 2.4 million visitors each year. Those tourists may engage in riskier behaviors, both on the road and at local attractions, that may increase the risk of a brain injury.

After sporting events at Florida State University, drivers may leave while still inebriated from the game or engage in reckless behavior due to excitement. Heavy tourist traffic during the summer can also lead to increased physical traffic on the road, which may pose a higher overall level of danger to all drivers.

Increased Elderly Population

Tallahassee has an increasingly larger elderly population. Elderly individuals may face a greater fall risk, increasing the odds that they will hit their heads and suffer a brain injury. Elderly individuals may also suffer a greater overall impact and have a harder time healing after a traumatic brain injury.

Heavy Construction Accident Risk

Construction accidents have a high risk of causing devastating traumatic brain injury for Florida builders. Even with hard hats, construction workers may face serious risks from falling objects on construction sites. As Tallahassee sees a great deal of construction, particularly in response to increasing levels of tourist traffic, the area may continue to see increasing construction accident risks. Construction accidents make up a high percentage of worker deaths across Florida annually and may also make up a high percentage of severe injuries on the job.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur due to a variety of accidents.

Any time the victim has the potential to suffer trauma or immense force to the head, the victim may end up sustaining a brain injury.

  • Construction accidents have a high risk of causing brain damage, although workers usually wear hard hats on the job site any time they face a danger of head injury.
  • Car accidents result in brain injuries due to the immense force often involved in those accidents.
  • Slip and fall accidents can cause brain injury if the victim hits their head on the way down.
  • Sometimes, falling objects can cause substantial head trauma and brain injury.

At Dolman Law Group, we help our clients look at all potential causes of their injuries so they can pursue compensation from the liable party.

Fighting the Insurance Company After a Brain Injury in Tallahassee

Brain injuries may mean the need to pursue substantial compensation for your injuries, which may mean an immense injury claim. Insurance companies may not provide you with that much-needed compensation. At Dolman Law Group, we help our clients fight the tactics the insurance company may use to reduce the compensation it has to pay for their injuries.

What to Do Following a Tallahassee TBI

A traumatic brain injury can leave you reeling. You have immense injuries and ongoing limitations. You may know that you deserve compensation for your injuries, but not how to secure it. You likely already have a report from your doctor letting you know the extent of your injuries.

To help your right to compensation, follow these key steps.

Document your recovery and the challenges you face. You may have a hard time remembering those challenges on your own later, but a written or recorded record can make it easier to put it together.

  • Talk to an attorney as soon as you can. An attorney can help deal with the insurance company on your behalf, which can help remove confusion and make it easier to deal with those potential challenges.
  • Keep track of all medical expenses, including bills you may have already paid.
  • Follow your doctor's instructions, including avoiding anything that could cause further head trauma. If you worsen your injuries, it could decrease the compensation you can recover.
