Brain injury compensation

An accident can result in injury so severe that permanent disability and extreme incapacity can occur. In severe cases of brain injury, motor functions, cognitive ability, and social interaction are affected.  These results may lead to loss of job.  Diagnostic testing, surgery, drugs, around the clock assistance, and rehabilitation are usually needed.  If the disability is permanent, this can run up exorbitant bills.

Brain injury can result from—

– Car accidents
– Medical malpractice
– Defective products
– Oxygen deprivation from:
– Childbirth
– Surgery
– Drowning incident

If another person is at fault in causing the injury, you have grounds for a personal injury claim.  In some cases, a claim against more than one party may be appropriate.  We investigate all sources of recovery.
