Brenner Law represents people who suffer from head or brain injuries, also referred to as traumatic brain injury or TBI. Even a minor concussion can have serious long-term consequences.
When the head suffers a trauma from an impact with an object or hard surface, or even a sudden, rapid movement of the head or neck, the brain may move within the skull. The movement and disruption of the brain inside the skull can sever or shear the brain’s long connecting nerve fibers. This damage can be microscopic and difficult to measure. In cases involving “mild brain injury,” the effects can be either short or long-term and more severe brain injury can result in a reduction of physical, cognitive and psychological skills and functioning, and irreversible deficits.
Physical deficits can include impaired walking, balance and coordination, fine-motor skills, and strength. Cognitive deficits include difficulty with speech, information processing, memory, and perceptual skills. Psychological status is also often altered. People suffering from traumatic brain injury often exhibit changes in personality and lifestyle.
Because of the severity of many brain injuries, a person may be unable to work and medical bills may mount, and the level of physical and emotional discomfort may become severe. The recovery of damages from the person responsible will help to alleviate the stress of living with one’s injuries. Compensation may include an award for medical treatment, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Damage awards will include recovery for the past, present, and future costs of medical care and lost wages.
At Brenner Law we will hire experts, such as medical professionals, economists, and life care planners to help calculate how much compensation a brain injury claim is worth. For example, a medical expert will determine the type of treatment and rehabilitation needed, while a life care planner will research, analyze, and plan what it will cost to care for the accident victim. If the accident victim is unable to return to their same occupation before the injury, the damage award will include compensation for the difference in income.
