Our TBI Attorneys Will Establish Your Right to Brain Injury Damages
Proving your right to compensation requires demonstrating your brain injury and related financial losses directly resulting from another party’s reckless, wrongful, or negligent actions. It also means correctly filing paperwork, keeping track of deadlines, and handling phone calls, emails, and settlement negotiations.
Doing this can be difficult at the best of times. Accomplishing it while coping with a brain injury can seem impossible. With Christensen Law on your side, you do not have to fight alone. Our founding partner, David E. Christensen, has a 95 percent success rate with TBI cases and is well-versed in the language of neuroimaging, neuropsychology, and micro-damage.

How Much Compensation Can You Get for a Brain Injury?
Every personal injury case is different. The compensation you can receive depends on various unique factors, including age, brain injury severity, and how your TBI interferes with your work, life, and overall well-being. Our head injury attorneys will work to maximize your compensation by identifying every cent owed to you and exploring every available option for recovering awards.
In addition, we will not shy away from taking legal action when necessary. We prepare every case for trial and are more interested in getting financial justice and fair and full compensation than settling for less. In fact, our tenacity earned us and our client Michigan’s largest-ever personal injury jury verdict – a $17.8 million award for a truck accident resulting in a significant brain injury.
Our other outstanding case results include:
- A $2 million jury verdict for a client who sustained a head injury during a car wreck
- A $1.5 million jury award for a client who suffered a mild brain injury during a rear-end collision
Client Service Is at the Center of Everything We Do
We do not just want to help you secure damages. We also want to be an ally and a listening ear. We know the time following an accident can be scary and challenging, but you do not have to navigate the aftermath of your TBI by yourself.
Our Grand Rapids brain injury lawyers are here to serve you with compassion, making sure you are listened to every step of the way. Unfortunately, we cannot undo the harm done, but we can help you get peace of mind and the monetary resources you need to move forward.
Furthermore, we make our services affordable and accessible, no matter your current financial situation. We take cases on contingency, meaning you pay nothing upfront and do not owe attorney fees unless and until we win your case.
Do Wait Too Long to Pursue Your Grand Rapids, MI, Brain Injury Case
According to Michigan Compiled Laws § 600.5805, you have three years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. This statute of limitations will apply to many brain injury cases, but circumstances exist that could shorten or lengthen this window. For example, Michigan Compiled Laws § 500.3145 allows one year to sue for personal injury protection (PIP) benefits in cases involving no-fault insurance claims.
The court will likely bar you from seeking compensation if you miss the statutory deadlines. Understanding the time limits will also affect your insurance claims. Insurance agents know the law and an expired statute will reduce your bargaining power, potentially leading to a denied claim or reduced settlement.
Our lawyers can tell you more about how the laws apply to your case and help you get started before time runs out. We will do everything we can to protect your rights and safeguard your future.
