Fighting for Your Future

In brain and spinal injury cases, we employ medical experts, life-care planners and human factors experts to determine the cost of long-term care and treatment. We also calculate the impact of lost income if the injury victim was a wage earner and unable to return to work. This information helps us build a strong case for the compensation you need.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Sometimes called a closed-head injury, a TBI can be difficult to diagnose. The effects are not always immediately apparent, instead surfacing weeks or months after the injury.

Effects of a TBI can include: Headaches, dizziness, personality changes, depression, amnesia and loss of consciousness. Motor skill function and speech may also be impaired. In the most serious cases, the result may be a coma or wrongful death.

People with a brain injury often need long-term medical care. Depending on the severity of the injury, they may need rehabilitation and require treatment from specialists such as speech pathologists, therapists, neurologists, neuro-psychologists and others.

Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury can affect many parts of the body. Whether you suffer a complete or incomplete spinal cord injury, you may also be facing one or more of the following conditions:

  • Paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Chronic pain
  • Respiratory problems

Rehabilitation and other long-term treatment or care are usually necessary after a spinal cord injury.
