We help you recover the compensation you'll need, now and in the future.

Brain Injuries Can Affect Quality of Life in a Variety of Ways
The brain is one of the most important and vulnerable organs in the human body, each portion of the brain having a specific purpose. Therefore, when the head suffers a serious blow in a car accident or other serious accident, a whole range of abilities may be affected. However, the trauma sustained is likely to have a significant effect on a person's capability to live a "normal" life. Individuals who suffer from an open-head injury, closed-head injury or other traumatic brain injury may experience symptoms, such as:
- Loss of appetite
- Irritability or mood swings
- Changes in personality
- Loss of motor function
- Speech impediments
- Other symptoms
Depending on the severity of the brain injury, individuals suffering brain damage may require physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and other rehabilitative therapy following the accident and continuing far into the future. In addition, the individual may require ongoing medical treatment and personal care. It is possible that the individual will be incapable of working. Therefore, our attorneys work to recover full compensation through a negotiated lawsuit settlement or verdict for the medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of wages (including loss of earning potential). We are dedicated to alleviating the financial burdens caused by the car accident and work to provide financial compensation that will enable the individual to live the fullest life possible.
