With over 75 years of combined experience, our attorneys have the skills and determination to reach justice in the most severe injury cases.
Our team regularly handles head injury claims and has refined our approach to these complex claims. Because the brain is such a complicated organ, every case has a unique set of circumstances and resulting symptoms. Oftentimes, the doctor cannot confidently anticipate the patient’s symptoms, response to treatments and recovery timeline. We consult with experts in head injuries to accurately calculate damages that account for potential complications and future needs.
Mild Head Trauma
The medical community may refer to a head injury as being mild, but the term does not reflect the substantial impact the injury has on one’s life. Even mild brain damage can result in:
- Sensory problems
- Light and sound sensitivity
- Memory loss
- Cognitive impairment
- Mood swings
- Depression and anxiety
- Sleep disturbances
Symptoms may be temporary or last for several weeks or months, and thereby interfere with work, school, family responsibilities and quality of life.
Severe Head Trauma
Moderate to severe head trauma often results in permanent disabilities that range in severity and manifestation from loss of consciousness to lifelong impediments. Severe head injury may result in:
- Inflammation of the brain
- Nerve damage
- Intellectual, cognitive and functioning impairment
- Behavioral, judgment and emotional problems
- Inability to perform and relearn everyday tasks
- Communication difficulties
An altered state is a complication from brain injury. A person who has fallen into an altered state needs a lifetime of round-the-clock care and may never regain consciousness. Patients who do regain consciousness are unlikely to ever fully recover. In the worst case, a family member may suffer:
- Vegetative state
- Minimally conscious state
- Locked-in syndrome
- Brain death
We bring a lawsuit on behalf of the victim and the spouse based upon the impact that such a brain injury has on life and the losses personally suffered. Damages may include loss of wages and enjoyment of life in addition to the companionship, love, friendship and affection shared in the relationship.
