Head and brain injuries can be devastating and are often some of the worst that our clients — and their entire families — deal with. Just like injuries to other parts of your body, a brain injury can change your ability to move, work, and take care of your family. Most dramatically, however, a brain injury can change who you are. A brain injury is often considered a catastrophic injury – and we specialize in these injuries.
Sadly, brain injury is often permanent. Through therapy and rehabilitation, you may be able to regain a lot of functioning, or learn how to adapt to your injuries, but both may take a long time and you may never fully recover.
Every brain injury is unique. Each case requires nothing but the best possible care, expertise and resources to ensure a settlement or court award that is fair to the victim and family for years to come.
Damage to the head and brain doesn’t just cause pain and disability. It may affect your ability to perform basic everyday cognitive tasks, like reading, writing, speaking, remembering, focusing, control emotions and even understand social cues. All of this can severely affect your personal life, social life, independence and career. You may suffer from depression or anxiety as you struggle to adapt.
Our lawyers can help you determine what help you need, both legally and medically. We can connect you with qualified medical professionals to determine the extent of your losses, financial professionals to calculate your economic losses over your lifetime, and rehabilitation specialists to help you recover or adapt to your injuries.
Because of the complexity of these injuries and the need to make sure you are adequately compensated for the full extent of your losses, these cases may take a long time to resolve. We will pay for the cost of building and running your claim until we get a settlement or court award for you.
