Brain injuries caused by trauma, such as a blow to the head, can cause lifelong medical complications and life altering disabilities.

In a brain injury lawsuit, victims may be awarded financial compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. What is the difference between economic and non-economic damages? Economic damages have a specific monetary value and are easily calculated. Examples of economic damages include medical costs, lost wages from the inability to work, physical therapy costs, and caregiving costs.
Non-economic damages do not have a specific monetary value and therefore, are harder to assess and assign a dollar value. Examples of non-economic damages include loss of quality of life, physical pain, and emotional suffering.

Time is not on your side when seeking justice in the court system. Per state law, you have three years from the date of the injury to file a claim. It is important to note, however, you must comply with the pre-court proceedings outlined by Personal Injuries Proceedings Act 2002 (Qld) (PIPA). According to PIPA, you must notify the person who caused your injury twice. The process of notifying the respondent is:
Part 1A Part 1 notice must be given to the respondent nine months from the date you acquired the injury or one month from the date you first instructed a lawyer.
Part 2A Part 2 notice must be given to the respondent within two months of the earliest: the date the respondent replied to the Part 1 notice or the date the respondent is presumed to have accepted the first notice (if the respondent did not reply to the first notice).
As you can see, the claims process can be very overwhelming and confusing for the inexperienced. Let a skilled brain injury lawyer at Compensation Lawyers Group in Brisbane handle every aspect of your case so you can tend to your injury and family.
