Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have questions about whether you have a case or the timing involved with filing a lawsuit for your brain or spinal cord injuries. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

How do I know if I have a case for my traumatic brain injury?

The legal system is complex and difficult to navigate, so the best thing to do is make an appointment to speak with an attorney at our offices. Our law firm has many years of experience helping people who suffer due to someone else's negligence.

At Cooper Elliott, we don't charge hidden fees, and there's no hard sell. We want to hear your story and provide helpful information so you can decide what to do next.

What is the average settlement in a spinal cord or brain injury lawsuit?

Whether your case settles out of court or goes to trial, your attorney will seek compensation for everything you lost as a result of the accident.

Depending on the details of your specific situation, that can include:

Medical expenses, such as ambulance costs, emergency room visits, hospitalization, follow-up doctor visits, physical therapy, medical devices, and changes to your home to make it more accessible.
Property damaged in the accident, such as a car and the items inside it after a collision.
Lost wages from missed work as a result of your injuries.
Lost earnings capacity if you can no longer do the work you did before you were injured.
Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Punitive damages if the responsible party acted intentionally or with gross negligence.

Is it easier to take what the insurance company offers for my injuries?

It may be tempting to take the insurance settlement, especially if you are facing stacks of medical bills and a lack of income to pay them. Or maybe you just want to close this chapter of your life.

It's important not to take insurance money or other payments too quickly. Brain and spinal cord injuries can have lifelong consequences, and you need to make sure the settlement covers your costs over the long term.

Is there a deadline for filing a claim?

Yes, each state has its own rules specifying how long you have to file a claim. The legal term for this is statute of limitations. In Ohio, for example, you have two years to file a personal injury claim.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney for this type of case?

Some law firms change by the hour. Cooper Elliott offers free consultations, and we are paid only if we win your lawsuit or settle your claim out of court. We'll discuss the details with you every step of the way so there are no surprises.

What documents should I bring to the first meeting with a Cooper Elliott lawyer?

You don’t need to bring anything to our first meeting, but if you have documentation that supports your case, please bring it with you. Here are some examples:

Your notes documenting everything you can remember about the accident
Police report
Medical reports that describe your injuries
Medical bills related to the accident that describe treatments and costs
