How is Liability Established in a Brain Injury Case?

It is an all-too-common occurrence that an individual comes to us having suffered some sort of injury, or seeing a loved one suffering injury, and wondering what happened and what went wrong. A lawyer carefully looks over the case, answers all questions, and works to find out if the brain injury was due to negligence and if so, determining what parties were at fault. 

Establishing liability involves a few basic steps that require skilled legal experience:

  • Establishing there was a duty of care by a medical professional or facility.
  • Proving there was a breach of duty of care.
  • Proving the breach resulted in the brain injury.
  • Showing the causation of the brain injury resulted in damages.
