Brain injuries frequently result from a blow or jolt to the head, neck, or torso. Medical negligence also leads to brain injuries in some cases. Common causes of brain injuries include car accidents, sports injuries, slips and fall, anesthesia errors, surgical errors, playground injuries, and assault. There are many symptoms of brain injuries, and some are more easily identifiable than others. Brain injury victims may experience nausea, confusion, pain, difficulty sleeping, memory problems, inability to concentrate, loss of coordination, and other symptoms that can be temporary or permanent.
As previously mentioned, some brain injuries are more challenging to diagnose than others, and they are sometimes not diagnosed at all. Doctors may also misjudge the severity of brain injury and the impact it has on the patient. Unfortunately, when brain injuries are not properly diagnosed, injury victims do not receive the medical care and treatment that they need. Because of our experience with brain injuries, we have connections with brain injury experts who can help with diagnosis, evaluation, and long-term outlook. These experts may also help to interpret medical records and offer medical testimony when necessary.
In addition to finding medical experts, our attorneys will help to make sure you get the medical treatment that you need. They will also help to value your claim and negotiate with defendants and their insurance companies. We will not encourage you to settle your claim for an amount that does not fully and fairly compensate you. Our attorneys will make sure that your case is ready for trial in the event that settlement negotiations are not successful.
