Your Life May Never Be the Same
People with a closed-head injury may suffer a range of psychological problems, including personality changes, mood disorders, depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. They may also be left with severe headaches and impaired motor function. In extreme cases, a brain injury can result in a coma.
We understand that the long-term effects of brain injuries can be devastating. Injury victims may need medical care for the rest of their lives. They may be unable to return to work, enjoy the same activities or live on their own.
The cost of a brain injury can be enormous. In addition to medical treatment, you may also be facing loss of income and other expenses. We work with psychologists, neurologists and other experts to detail the effect the injury has on your life. Economists and life care planners help us calculate the long-term costs and argue for the maximum benefits you are entitled to.
In some situations, the injured person needs to have someone appointed as a guardian and as a conservator to help with medical and financial decisions. Our lawyers can assist you with this process. We can also handle probate if you have lost a family member to a brain or other injury.
