The experienced attorneys at Dollar, Burns & Becker understand a catastrophic injury has a major impact on the entire family. When it’s as serious as a traumatic brain injury, personality changes, speech problems or other side effects can mean trying to suddenly adjust to an entirely new lifestyle. Occasionally, family members and friends feel someone they knew well has turned into a stranger.
But for many people, the ultimate extent of the brain trauma is not immediately clear. Symptoms may not even surface for weeks. This is especially common in cases of closed head injury and concussion.
Our catastrophic injury attorneys have the experience, compassion, and knowledge you want to handle cases involving traumatic brain injury. Whether it’s you, a friend or a loved one who has been injured, we know exactly how to help you.
Every case involving severe trauma to the brain is different. Victims and family members often have a hard time dealing with not knowing what to expect. It’s not fair when someone has to deal with this catastrophic injury when it’s the result of another party's negligence or wrongdoing.
Our attorneys have the experience to help victims suffering from brain injuries obtain the resources they need for proper medical treatment and support. If negligence contributed to the injury, we vigorously pursue the negligent individuals and/or companies and hold them accountable.
Our goal is always to ensure our clients recover full and fair compensation for their injuries and losses, to pay for the care they will need for the rest of their lives.
Ultimately, the extent of disability and the potential for recovery, will depend on what part of the brain suffered damage and to what extent. Common symptoms or effects of traumatic brain injuries include:
Time is of the essence in traumatic brain injury cases. In accident cases, memories are often essential evidence. Because one common side effect of a traumatic brain injury is memory loss, it is essential to seek proper medical attention AND legal counsel as soon as possible. Don’t delay! Initial consultations are free and we work solely on a contingency basis.
