Brain and spine injuries are among the most devastating and life-altering injuries a person can sustain. When the spinal cord has been damaged, it may result in permanent disability involving paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia. Spinal injury victims may require weeks, months, years, or lifelong medical care and equipment and personal assistance. Such an injury may effectively end their careers, ability to work and provide for a family, and enjoy the everyday activities that the rest of us take for granted.
Similarly, an individual who sustains a brain injury may experience a concussion, coma, and long-term disabilities as a result. Traumatic brain injuries, which result from a blow to the head, may lead to hemorrhaging, swelling, and pressure in the skull, which can cause death, motor control and cognitive problems, such as loss of memory, slurred speech, chronic headaches, and more.
In the event of a brain injury or spine injury resulting from the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another, you are entitled to compensation from the responsible party. I will aggressively pursue your case, taking every legal measure to achieve justice on your behalf, whether at the negotiation table or through civil litigation.
The leading cause of catastrophic injuries such as these is traffic accidents, which may involve motorists, motorcyclists, large trucks, and more. Slip and fall incidents, sports-related injuries, and attacks of violence are also major causes. The prognosis for those with such injuries generally depends on the nature of injury, how much damage has been done to the brain or spine, how long the individual may be in a coma, age, overall health, and other factors specific to the case.
