A brain injury can occur in many different ways. A baby may be deprived of oxygen at birth or a surgical patient may suffer from an anesthesia error. A passenger in a car accident may not be directly hit, but could suffer brain injury from a violently shaken head. Whatever causes a brain injury, it requires extensive, long-term care.
- Investigation of the circumstances: Was the brain injury caused by medical negligence? Was it the result of a car, truck or motorcycle accident? Whatever the cause, our law firm has the experience it takes to investigate the medical procedure or car accident.
- What is the extent of the brain injury? Too often, a brain injury is not immediately diagnosed. Especially with a closed head injury, a doctor or patient may not notice the signs. Memory loss, difficulty in functioning and a loss in IQ can signal a problem. An MRI can sometimes reveal the white spots that indicate brain injury. A brain stem injury can be extremely serious and result in loss of physical functions.
- The role of a neuropsychologist: With more than 50 years of experience in helping injury victims, our personal injury lawyers regularly consults with experts who can identify brain injuries and help victims adapt to the problems caused by a brain injury. By understanding the full extent of the injuries, we can make an insurance claim or file a lawsuit for the compensation necessary to cope with those injuries.
