Providing for a patient with a severe brain injury

A severe traumatic brain injury or brain stem injury is obvious. Following the accident that caused the head trauma the patient may need lifetime attendant care or nursing care, is comatose, or is on life support. Our attorneys work with medical, life-care, and economic experts to calculate the full loss to the victim and family, and the cost of life-time care adjusted for inflation. Not only the size of the settlement or verdict, but the way in which it is structured will determine whether the accident victim will be able to live with dignity.

Diagnosing a mild traumatic brain injury

Mild brain damage may result in memory loss, inability to concentrate, personality changes, or depression - - changes that are confusing and discouraging for the victim and family. Emergency room doctors are typically focused on surgical and orthopedic injuries. Doctors often fail to diagnose mild cases of traumatic brain injury.

It is important you are seen by qualified medical professionals and get the proper diagnosis and treatment.
