Our Westfield TBI Legal Team’s Practice Areas
Your traumatic brain injury could have been due to one of many accident scenarios. We can help you with any personal injury case that resulted in a TBI.
We work on Westfield personal injury cases involving the following accidents:
- Bus accidents
- Bike accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall incidents
- On-the-job accidents
- Truck accidents
- Premises liability incidents
- Defective product incidents
- Dog bite injury incidents
Pursuing compensation in any of these situations (with the exception of product liability cases) will depend on proving that someone’s negligence caused your injury. We must prove how another party’s reckless or careless actions caused you to get hurt and sustain losses.
How We Can Prove Negligence in Your Case
Securing compensation for your damages involves proving:
- The at-fault party had a duty of care toward you
- The at-fault party, despite their duty of care, did not follow through with their obligation
- You were hurt due to the at-fault party’s actions
- You have financial or other losses
We will use many kinds of evidence to help prove negligence in your case. Finding evidence involves reading the accident report, examining your medical records, speaking to witnesses, and even recreating how your accident happened.

We Can Seek Financial Recovery for You and Your Loved Ones
Following a traumatic brain injury, the costs of hospitalization, doctors’ copays, and other related losses can quickly add up. If your situation could have been prevented by the other party acting responsibly, you deserve compensation.
As the American Bar Association (ABA) notes, some types of damages in a TBI case may include:
Pain, Suffering, and Mental Anguish
A traumatic brain injury can leave you in pain and unable to care for yourself. You may no longer be able to drive a motor vehicle or attend work. The emotional turmoil of your injury can be translated into a dollar amount, and we can seek compensation for this loss.
Even with insurance, a traumatic brain injury can be expensive to treat and manage. We are committed to reviewing and pursuing the full cost of your healthcare expenses, including any ongoing expenses you may have.
Property Damage Costs
If you were in a collision, your car might have been damaged or destroyed. Your insurance claim or lawsuit could account for the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle.
Lost Wages and Loss of Future Earning Capacity
Even if your traumatic brain injury was relatively mild, you could still be out of work for a considerable period of time. You might also miss out on benefits, bonuses, and tips, depending on the nature of your profession. We can factor these losses into your claim or lawsuit.
Losses Associated with Losing a Loved One
Traumatic brain injuries can be fatal. If you lost a loved one due to a TBI, we’re very sorry for your loss. Our team understands you’re going through a difficult time. Some losses we can claim via a wrongful death action include:
- Funeral costs
- Burial or cremation expenses
- Your loved one’s unresolved healthcare bills
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of household benefits
- Loss of parental guidance
We can also recover the cost of your loved one’s anticipated income. A Westfield traumatic brain injury lawyer from our firm can help you evaluate the costs of your damages.
We recommend holding onto your medical bills, pay stubs, employment records, and property damage invoices. We can use these documents to prove the costs of your losses.

Important Considerations Immediately Following a Traumatic Brain Injury in Westfield
Our team wants to hear about your case as soon as possible because of Indiana’s statute of limitations. You could have as little as two years (from the date of your incident) to file a lawsuit, as described under IC § 34-11-2-4.
Aside from contacting our team, there are other measures that could help advance and preserve your case. These measures include:
Seeking Medical Care as Soon as Possible
Traumatic brain injuries are especially serious, so you should take yours seriously. Some people go to bed with concussions and have their health take a turn for the worse during the night.
By seeking medical care right away, you can:
- Learn more about your condition
- Get treatment to help you recover from or manage the condition and move forward with your life
- Gather evidence, such as imaging scans, to prove the severity of your condition and your damages
We can also use medical records to connect your injury to the accident in question.
Being Careful of What You Say to the Claims Adjuster
You do not have to talk to the claims adjuster or the insurance representative, regardless of what they may tell you. Their questions are not designed to gather the information that will benefit your case; they are designed to get you to reveal incriminating pieces of information.
With a lawyer from our firm on your side, you won’t even have to pick up the phone when they call you. Instead, you’ll be able to direct them to your lawyer.
Not Engaging in Risky Behavior
A traumatic brain injury can leave you in a fragile state. However, you may be eager to return to your life.
By pushing yourself too hard, you’d risk making your condition worse. If your doctor recommends a certain course of treatment, then you should follow it. If you engage in activities that could exacerbate your symptoms, the other party may use this information against you. This could reduce the amount of money you could recover.
Keeping Track of Your Damages
Throughout the progression of your case, you should hold onto all information regarding the costs of your damages. This includes your medical bills, wage statements, property damage receipts, and related invoices.

How a Westfield TBI Lawyer Can Help
You may not want to handle your case on your own or rely on family to handle your case for you. Without a lawyer, it will be difficult to manage each task involved in your case, especially while you manage your injury. With a lawyer, you’ll be able to leave every task in your lawyer’s hands and focus on your recovery and family, which may help you recover more quickly and support your family emotionally.
Your lawyer will handle each of the following tasks and others for you:
- Investigating the incident that led to your injury and gathering evidence from many different sources
- Gathering corroborating evidence from sources like witnesses and medical experts
- Determining which damages you can claim and the value of those damages, which can be especially difficult in a TBI case like yours
- Explaining your damages to the insurance company and then negotiating a settlement with them, which can also be especially difficult in a TBI case
- Defending you against any attempts the insurer may make to diminish your case or damages
- Litigating your case if the insurer isn’t willing to negotiate fairly or in good faith
- Fighting for all of the damages you and your family deserve
