Yes. You aren’t the one who suffered a brain injury in the bike wreck, but you are suffering too. You may be the one who has to protect your husband’s rights—and your family’s future—by contacting a personal injury attorney.
Right now, your husband may be unable to make the call. He may be in too much pain, he may be confused, or he may not recognize that he needs help. If his brain injury is keeping him from contacting a lawyer to discuss his legal rights after a negligent driver caused his brain injury, then you should be the one to make the phone call.
By consulting an attorney, you can be confident that:
- You understand your husband’s rights. An attorney can explain whether or not your husband may have a claim and what his right to a recovery may be.
- Steps are taken to protect your husband’s rights. Your husband’s lawyer will explain how to protect your husband’s rights. This may include making sure that you don’t miss any important deadlines and determining if your husband is competent to file a claim or whether you need legal authority to do so.
- Valuable evidence is protected. Accident evidence is generally easier to preserve if you act to do so sooner rather than later.
- You have not left any stone unturned as you try to protect your family’s future. You don’t want to wonder whether you could have done more to protect your husband or you family. Instead, you want to be sure that you have done everything in your power to cover your husband’s medical bills, to be reimbursed for lost income, to be paid for your out-of-pocket expenses, and to be compensated for pain and suffering.
