West Palm Beach Brain Injury Attorney
If you or your loved one has suffered a brain injury, you know the symptoms can affect all aspects of your life and that recovering from the injury may be difficult or impossible.

Proving Negligence in a Brain Injury Case
Under Florida laws, victims who suffer injuries or individuals who lose loved ones can pursue either a personal injury or wrongful death claim to obtain monetary compensation. Victims will need to prove:
- That the defendant did something wrong on purpose, or was negligent (unreasonably careless or in violation of safety laws)
- That the negligence was the direct cause of brain injury (or other physical and/or emotional harm)
- That the victim actually sustained losses that the defendant can provide monetary compensation for
Negligence and/or intentional wrongdoing are frequently the cause of brain injuries. For example, top reasons for brain injuries to develop include car accidents, falls, and intentional violence. A driver who causes a car wreck, a property owner whose negligent maintenance contributes to a fall, or an individual who acts violently can all be named as defendants in an injury or wrongful death claim. A West Palm Beach brain injury lawyer at Steinger, Greene & Feiner can help injured victims or family members determine if there is a case against someone who caused the injury.

A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
Your Right to Compensation
Victims in a personal injury case are entitled to compensation for medical bills and costs; lost income; pain and suffering; emotional distress; and other damages directly resulting from their injuries. With a brain injury, the medical bills are often very high and there are often significant physical and emotional changes that result from the injury.
While every case is different, this means that the help of an attorney, many victims are able to obtain generous settlements or larger jury verdicts due to the serious nature of a brain injury. Wrongful death damages, on the other hand, include compensation for funeral expenses, lost companionship and medical expenses that were incurred before a death due to brain injury.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that as many as one-third of all deaths due to injury have brain injuries as contributing factors, so these types of wrongful death injury claims are fairly common.
