Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury. We represent people who suffer from head or brain injury.
A head injury or traumatic brain injury (TBI), occurs when the head is struck or hit. A blow to the head usually results in a concussion. Even a minor concussion can have serious long-term consequences if it damages vital portions of the brain.
When the head is seriously hit, the brain may twist within the skull. The physical deficits can include impaired walking, balance and coordination, fine-motor skills, and strength.
The rotation and disruption of the brain inside the skull will sever or shear the brain’s long connecting nerve fibers. This damage can be microscopic and difficult to measure. In cases involving “mild brain injury”, the effects may not be long term, but more severe brain injury can result in reduction in physical and psychological skills and irreversible cognitive deficits.
Cognitive deficits include difficulty with speech, information processing, memory, and perceptual skills. Psychological status is also often altered. People suffering from traumatic brain injury will often exhibit changes in personality and lifestyle. If you have suffered a blow to the head and are experiencing any of the above-mentioned symptoms, you should see a doctor.
With over two decades of experience litigating personal injury cases, we know how to make sure you and your family get the help you need during this difficult time.
We let our clients know at the outset that litigation may be necessary to achieve a full financial recovery. We will conduct a detailed investigation and make sure the responsible parties are held accountable for their negligence. We handle a wide range of accidents that lead to head trauma, including:
- Construction accidents
- Car and truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Industrial accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
There are never any upfront legal fees that you will pay us. We only work on a contingency basis. This means we work for a percent of the recovery and are only paid if we collect money for you from the defendants. Additionally, we pay for all of the costs to litigate your case, such as the hiring of necessary accident reconstruction experts, court filing fees, etc. In essence, we incur the financial risk for you and only get paid after we recover compensation for you. Working closely with experts, we make sure we have the information we need to prepare the best possible case.
