Getting Compensation For Serious Brain Injuries
Even a head injury that seems minor at first can have major effects on your life. Many people experience head injuries in car accidents, motorcycle accidents or accidents on oil rigs. They think that they are fine until it becomes clear that something is seriously wrong.
At the J. Minos Simon Law Firm, we understand what families go through when a loved one has experienced a brain injury in an accident. We understand how hard the victims of closed head injuries must fight to do the things that once came easily. The impact on the family and victim is real.
The Experience Necessary To Get The Best Possible Results
Brain injuries can lead to loss of consciousness, changes in behavior and personality, fine motor skills, memory loss and even coma. Symptoms can also consist of headaches and sensitivity to light and sound. Brain injuries can make it difficult to do the things that once came easily and, at their worst, can rob a family of the person they loved and knew before an accident.
When our law firm takes your traumatic brain injury (TBI) case, we take the time to talk with you about your goals and experience. We take different approaches depending on the severity and nature of your brain injury, as well as your personal goals.
We frequently work with expert brain doctors – neuropsychologists – who administer many different brain function tests. They use the results of these tests to predict whether brain damage may be temporary or permanent. The tests serve as critical evidence that can be presented at trial or used to negotiate a settlement that will cover the costs of rehabilitation and support.
Over the years, our law firm has handled many brain injury cases. Most of these have been related to car accidents or motorcycle accidents (even when motorcyclists were wearing helmets) in which vehicles were hit by drivers operating their vehicles negligently, carelessly or recklessly. Only by holding these drivers accountable for the harm they caused can brain injury victims get the resources necessary for the help they need to get better.
