Traumatic Brain Injuries

A person's head does not necessarily have to come into contact with a physical object in order for a traumatic brain injury (TBI) to occur. A sharp, jarring motion may create enough of an impact for brain tissue to bruise, tear or bleed simply by crushing the brain against the skull. Some common examples of this include cases of "shaken baby syndrome" or whiplash.

TBIs can be particularly frustrating because there may be no outward sign of injury. A person may walk away from an accident only to find himself or herself in need of emergency medical care hours later. A TBI may manifest itself in other, more subtle ways, such as a change in mood or personality in the weeks following an accident. It is important to always seek medical attention as soon as possible and to follow up a TBI diagnosis with an exploration of your legal options.

Spinal Cord Injuries

In some cases, an injury to the spinal cord may only result in bruising or swelling, and the nerves will gradually begin to work again over time. In other cases, the injury may be so severe that a person may need a wheelchair for mobility for the rest of his or her life, or require significant ongoing medical care.

When a spinal cord injury is severe, it is important to develop a full picture of a person's damages, and what type of care will be required for the rest of his or her life. Our lawyers can help tell this story in an effort to ensure that full and fair compensation, both for the accident and future care, is recovered.
