Fighting Insurance Companies
Because brain injuries are costly, large insurance companies will do just about anything to avoid paying a claim. Insurance companies may put up a fight on all fronts. They may contest liability and assert that their insured was not to blame for the accident. They may question the severity of the injury. They may hire doctors to second guess your treating physicians. They may argue that an unemployable brain injury victim can go back to work.
