Victims of head and brain injuries often experience a range of difficulties such as confusion, lack of concentration, memory loss, personality change, and headaches. Understandably, these victims are some of our most frustrated, emotionally distressed and upset clients. The added stress and complexity of litigation come at a time when they are least ready to deal with it.
As with all of our clients, we take the time to explain the issues and to guide them through the process. However, experience has shown us that these clients often require a little more attention and understanding. We proceed with patience and compassion.
Fighting your case to the end
It is often easier to settle a severe brain injury case for a large figure than it is to prove damages in a mild traumatic brain injury lawsuit. When the symptoms are subject to dispute and the prognosis for a full recovery is uncertain, the defendant's insurer will be likely to fight your case to the end.
We know how to investigate and present claims for brain injuries ranging from concussion to severe brain damage or extended coma. In the less severe range of cases, known medically as mild or moderate traumatic brain injury, symptoms are often subtle and subject to change over time as the patient's brain develops microscopic scar tissue during the healing process.
Individuals suffering from a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) are often unaware of the effects. Symptoms include forgetting well-known numbers, leaving doors open or water running, confusion, lack of concentration, memory loss, personality change, headaches, blurry vision, sleep or appetite disorders and sometimes even the loss of sense of taste or loss of sense of smell.
