Others will suffer permanent brain damage.

Overcoming the Challenges of a Brain Injury or Head Injury
Head injuries can vary greatly, from a mild concussion or closed head injury to a traumatic brain injury. Some individuals experience memory loss, appetite loss and insomnia. Whereas other individuals suffer loss of motor skills, have speech impediments and other impairments. However, it is essential to seek proper medical attention following a serious accident – even when symptoms do not seem apparent.
Individuals who suffer a head injury will likely require medical treatment, some form of rehabilitative therapy (physical, occupational, vocational or speech therapy) and ongoing care. The lives of the injured individual as well as the family will both be impacted.
Our attorneys recognize that a head injury can create physical, emotional and financial challenges for all those involved. Our law firm advocates for injured clients, pursuing full compensation to alleviate the financial burdens associated with the injury.
Working to Maximize Compensation following a Head Injury
We thoroughly investigate the cause of the accident and determine who may be liable for damages. We evaluate all means of liability in order to maximize the recovery our client receives. We work with medical professionals, life care planning specialists and other experts to document the extent of the head injury and determine the short-term as well as long-term needs of the individual. We use financial experts to express the economic value of a case based on all of the information gathered.
