We are your allies if you have suffered a brain injury

A head injury is often one of the most significant life events that a person can experience. Suffering a brain injury is often completely unexpected and can occur numerous different ways: a fall, a car accident, other forms of impact, or negligence in medical care and treatment. Brain injuries have the potential to be so devastating because they can result in serious emotional issues, loss in cognitive abilities, personality changes, coma, memory loss, seizures or even death.

Dealing with the aftermath of a brain injury is difficult enough on its own without the additional stressors of financial strain. Financial pressures are often inevitable after a brain injury, however, due to the associated high costs of medical care, rehabilitation or long-term care assistance. When a brain injury results from the actions or negligence of a third party, that person is the one who should be responsible for paying these costs, not the victim or his or her family members.

In many cases, the only way to ensure that the liable party will actually pay the needed compensation is to file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. This is where we come in. We understand that it can difficult to handle day-to-day obligations, and the additional responsibility of providing care to an injured loved one, while at the same time pursuing a lawsuit. For this reason, we try to make the process as simple as possible for you. We handle the legal details so that you can handle the details of your daily life.

Success in a personal injury lawsuit related to a brain injury often requires a significant amount of evidence. The plaintiff must prove that the defendant acted negligently, as well as establishing the harm suffered and the extent of the injury. We will handle the investigation of the accident or the negligent medical treatment that caused or worsened the brain injury, and we will collect the evidence needed to show harm. We will fight for you every step of the way to help you and your loved ones get back on their feet as soon as possible.
