Brain Injury

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. 

HAVE YOU SUFFERED A HEAD INJURY?

To obtain evidence we will often ask friends, family, and neighbors to document the strange or abnormal behavior of someone suspected of striking their head. Often many of the mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) symptoms will resolve on their own within a year of the incident causing the injury. Those symptoms that do not resolve may be permanent. Doctors and therapists often help victims of mild traumatic brain injury by teaching ways to compensate for memory problems. 

We work with medical experts

We work with medical and rehabilitative experts as necessary to explain the full range of your brain injury symptoms to make sure that your damages are documented and taken seriously by the defendant and its insurer. In some cases, we work with neuropsychologists who can relate the physical dynamics of a car or truck accident to particular symptoms or behavioral changes.

Brain injuries are most prevalent in motor vehicle/car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents and falling merchandise cases. However, they are also seen in bicycle accidents and car/pedestrian accidents.
