The Tragedy of a Brain Injury Can Be Overwhelming
Of the multitude of injuries we can suffer in our lives, few if any are as profound and devastating as an injury to the brain. So much of what we do, experience, and feel on a daily basis comes from our brain. When someone suffers significant brain damage, life for them as well as for their loved ones is turned upside down. The loss of motor skills and the ability to communicate, the inability to work or even take care of oneself, the disappearance of precious memories --- all of these can follow in the wake of a brain injury.
I Help Brain Injury Victims and Their Families Get What They Need and Deserve
As an attorney who has assisted brain injury victims and their families for years, I understand that no amount of money can replace the life that once was. But in cases where the injury was caused by the reckless conduct of someone else, compensation may be available to provide much needed help with the medical bills, costs of ongoing care, lost wages, and suffering caused by the loss of so much. For brain injury victims and their families, I work tirelessly to get them the compensation they deserve and need while providing compassionate counsel to guide them through this incredibly challenging ordeal.
What is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a catastrophic type of brain damage caused by an external force striking the head, whether from the skull making impact with the ground or an object piercing the cranial plate to penetrate the brain. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that at least 1.7 million Americans suffer a TBI each year.
These catastrophic injuries can be caused by a number of things, including:
- Car accidents
- Work and construction injuries
- Boating accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Sports injuries
- Slips and falls
Some of the more severe TBI symptoms include paralysis, impaired speech, loss of motor skills, coma, personality disorder, and compromised reasoning ability.
Compassionate and Personal Advocacy on Behalf of Brain Injury Victims
When you decide to seek compensation for a brain injury, it is absolutely crucial that you find an attorney who understands the complexities of brain injuries as well as the legal challenges involved in traumatic brain injury litigation. I have significant experience and a track record of success representing brain injury victims. With compassion and respect, I guide brain injury sufferers and their families through the many difficult decisions and challenges that are part of the aftermath of a brain injury event. I pride myself on being accessible, and keep my clients informed throughout the entire legal process.
In addition to fighting to obtain compensation for brain injury victims, I offer guidance in dealing with medical insurance claims, disability, educational considerations, guardianship decisions, work-related issues, and even the establishment of a special needs trust.
