Brain Injury Claims
Brain injuries change the life of the person affected and the family involved in many ways. If this is your personal story, you are not alone.
What You Need To Know About Brain Injuries
In cases involving severe brain injuries, the victims may no longer be able to work the jobs they once held. They may need help to accomplish the tasks of daily life after a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Even if an injured person can return to work, the family may notice personality changes, emotional changes (such as increased anger or depression) and memory problems.
It’s essential for the injured person to receive the best medical and rehabilitative care available if he or she is to make maximum recovery.

What Can Cause A Severe Brain Injury?
While motor vehicle accidents are a frequent cause of closed head injuries (concussions) and traumatic brain injuries, there are other causes as well. We handle brain injury cases resulting from:
- Car accidents, truck accidents and pedestrian accidents
- Medical malpractice, particularly in cases of birth injuries caused by fetal distress or lack of oxygen
- Falls on poorly maintained properties or at construction sites
- Construction accidents in which workers fall from a height or are struck by falling objects
These are just a few examples of accidents that cause brain injury.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 1.4 million people suffer some type of brain injury each year.
How We Will Prepare Your Brain Injury Case
Brain injury and brain damage cases are complex. We work with neurologists, neuropsychologists, vocational rehabilitation experts and life care planners to help us explain the causes and extent of the injuries and the effects these injuries will have on our clients’ lives.
Our lawyers prepare every case for trial. We have extensive courtroom experience and a track record of successful verdicts and settlements to show for it. Insurance companies know that we are not afraid to take the case as far as it needs to go in order to get you the money you deserve.
