Head injuries run the gamut from minor concussions to debilitating traumatic injuries that leave people permanently unable to care for themselves. If you or a family member suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), it is important to speak with a lawyer to determine if legal action is appropriate.
Carey Law Firm, P.C., represents individuals who have suffered TBIs as a result of car accidents, and in slip-and-fall accidents and medical malpractice. Our attorneys understand that even a mild brain injury can leave a person with lingering effects for months, years or indefinitely. Common side effects of a brain injury include:
- Feeling spaced out
- Personality changes
- Inability to concentrate or hold down a job
Understanding The Long-Term Effects Of A Traumatic Brain Injury
The effects of a TBI or other catastrophic injuries can be devastating for victims and their families. Once capable, independent individuals may require extensive care, sometimes with even basic everyday tasks. Recovery can be slow and difficult, with dramatic changes in personality or severe depression. More serious brain injuries may leave a person with lasting speech impediments, neurological damage affecting bodily functions, frequent seizures and/or an unsteady gait.
Because of the long recovery times and extensive medical care, treatment for brain and other catastrophic injuries is often very expensive and insurance companies will fight to limit medical care and reduce compensation. Our attorneys and in-house registered nurse have the experience and determination to ensure that you receive the proper care and compensation to which you are entitled.
