Brain Injury Law
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result of someone else’s carelessness or a defective product, the law provides you with a remedy.
Lawsuits involving traumatic brain injury can bring substantial verdicts or settlements. Since 1984, I have helped victims of all kinds of serious injury, including traumatic brain injury. All personal injury cases are done on a contingency basis, meaning there is no charge until you win a verdict or settlement.

To obtain full compensation for TBI, you must retain an attorney that is willing to work with your doctor, neurologist, neuro-psychologist, occupational therapist, and rehabilitation specialist. Only then can your legal/medical team fully appreciate the impact of the injury upon you and your family.
TBI can be permanent. Your lawyer must fully develop the damages portion of your case so that you can receive appropriate compensation. What are the long-term consequences of traumatic brain injury? Individuals with brain injury often experience problems with both vision and hearing loss. Carolyn Rocchio of the Brain Injury Association says the following about traumatic brain injury:
“Hearing problems can occur for a number of reasons, both mechanical and neurologic, particularly when the inner ear and/or temporal lobes have been damaged. All patients should have an otoscopic examination and hearing screening followed by behavioral testing. External bleeding in the ear canal, middle ear damage, cochlear injury, and/or temporal lobe lesions can cause auditory dysfunction.” (Rocchio, 1998)
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 5.3 million Americans currently have a long-term or lifelong need for help to perform activities of daily living because of traumatic brain injury.
An estimated 40% of those hospitalized with a TBI have at least one unmet need for services one year after their injury. Most frequently these are:
- Improving memory and problem solving;
- Managing stress and emotional upsets;
- Controlling one’s temper; and
- Improving one’s job skills.
