Our Delray Beach Brain Injury Lawyer Will Fight for Compensation in Your Case
Traumatic brain injuries are among the most expensive to manage and live with, especially when lasting effects create new disabilities and challenges for the victim. While these cases’ outcomes vary widely, they often require ambulance transportation, emergency department assessment, hospital stays, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. These costs add up quickly.
An injury’s lasting effects can also cause financial strain, especially if the victim cannot return to work. Even those who make a full recovery often miss extended time at work.
Our attorneys understand how much the financial effects of an injury like this can affect victims and their families. We seek fair and just compensation to help them cover the costs and losses they incur. This varies based on the circumstances and unique damages but often includes:
- Medical bills and related expenses, current and future
- Ongoing care and support costs
- Lost income if you missed time at work
- Diminished earning ability if you cannot return to work
- Property damages and other related expenses
- Pain and suffering
We also handle wrongful death cases. If your loved one died from a Delray Beach brain injury, we could seek and recover compensation under Florida Statutes § 768.21. This law allows only the decedent’s personal representative, the executor of their estate, to sue. Our team can help you identify this party if necessary.

Building a Case Based on Your Delray Beach, FL, Brain Injury Incident
Your evidence must show what happened and how the other party’s carelessness or recklessness caused your injuries before you can hold another party legally accountable for a traumatic brain injury and related losses. Gathering such evidence requires an investigation.
When you work with Ged Lawyers, we identify, gather, and analyze the evidence in your case to show negligence and liability occurred. This includes documenting the four elements of negligence, which are:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
For example, imagine a fall injury case. The property owner has a duty of care to keep their property safe from preventable hazards, such as a spill. They failed to do so and did not clean up a spill for an hour while employees walked around it. This was a breach of duty. You stepped in the spill and slipped, hitting your head on the floor. The spill was the proximate cause of your accident. You suffered physical, emotional, and financial harm.
With this evidence, we can present a compelling case for compensation to the insurance carrier representing the liable party. Alternatively, we use the same evidence at trial to show the judge and jury what happened and why you, our client, deserve fair compensation.
Options for Pursuing Compensation After a Delray Beach, FL, Brain Injury
Generally, there are two options for recovering compensation following a brain injury incident in Delray Beach, FL. Most successful cases end in a negotiated settlement with the insurance company. This can occur before or after filing a lawsuit in civil court.
Sometimes, we may suggest taking a case to trial. When this occurs, it is because we cannot convince the insurer to pay a fair price, or there is another reason why presenting the case to a judge and jury benefits our client.
There are time limits for how long you can wait to sue, and this may be less time than you think. Florida lawmakers recently reduced the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases in the state. Since HB 837/SB236 went into effect on March 24, 2023, injured parties generally have only two years to begin a lawsuit. Contact us as soon as possible to protect your right to sue.
