Although caused by various accidents, the symptoms of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) don’t always appear immediately. It isn’t like a broken bone where an X-ray can detect the break, and a doctor can repair it. Mayo Clinic states that symptoms may not manifest until hours, days, or weeks after the accident.
If you or someone you love suffered a TBI through another person or entity’s reckless or negligent behavior, you might benefit by discussing your case with a Frankfort traumatic brain injury lawyer.

Your Lawyer Will Prove Negligence in Your Frankfort TBI Case
When compiling evidence and documentation for a claim, our TBI lawyers will also prove negligence, which means meeting the following four elements:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
To prove negligence, we must prove that the defendant had a duty of care, or responsibility, to perform a specific task, such as obeying traffic laws. Then we must prove that the defendant breached or failed to perform that duty. As a result of the breach, an accident was caused, which resulted in damages or financial loss to the plaintiff (you).

Evidence Helps Support Your TBI Case
When you meet with our TBI team, it is beneficial to bring with you documentation you already have, including:
- Accident or incident reports
- Contact information for witnesses
- Initial medical reports detailing your injuries
- Photos or videos recorded on your cell phone, if available
Our team will begin with your basic information and add to it. We can employ independent accident investigators to review all the available information and, if necessary, reconstruct your accident.
Our team can determine who was at fault by collecting and analyzing the data. Kentucky is a no-fault state for auto accidents, meaning you first turn to your insurance company. However, when there are extenuating circumstances, we could claim negligence to obtain more compensation for you.

The Kentucky Statute of Limitations Could Affect Your TBI Case
Kentucky has different statutes of limitations for different types of accidents. If you were injured in a vehicle accident, per Ky. Rev. Stat. § 304.39-230, you only have two years from the date of your accident or the final personal injury protection (PIP) payment.
Determining the Negligent Parties in Your Traumatic Brain Injury Case
It can be relatively simple to determine the at-fault party when your accident involves another automobile. However, it isn’t always so cut-and-dry in vehicle accidents involving semi-trucks. Fault may fall on the owner of the truck for lack of required maintenance, the maintenance company for improperly performed maintenance, or unsafe equipment.
Our TBI team will explore all possibilities when determining the liable parties for your accident. Whether your accident was a vehicle accident or a slip and fall on a poorly maintained icy sidewalk, we will work to uncover the at-fault parties for you.
