head injury lawyer

Symptoms of brain or head injury may include:

  • problems learning new information
  • problems with attention and concentration
  • reduced ability to plan and organize
  • dramatic changes in mood, personality, or temper
  • changes in energy or sleep patterns
  • altered sensitivity to light or noise, or changes in sense of taste

We specialize in obtaining fair compensation for persons suffering from a concussion, also known as a brain or head injury.  In a case with a suspected brain or head injury, we work with the friends, family, and co-workers of the injured person to get the facts.

We understand the conditions that can sometimes accompany a head injury, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Some of the personal injury files we have handled have involved claims by plaintiffs for mental injuries or conditions including depression, PTSD, anxiety, or concussion/traumatic brain injury(TBI).  One of our litigators, David Madani has an undergraduate degree in psychology – he appreciates the nuances on a mental injury claim.

People suffering from traumatic brain injuries need more than financial compensation. Brain and head injuries require specific medical care, accommodation at work, and other rehabilitation plans.

Since we are also business lawyers, we excel at understanding a person’s business and understanding how an injury affects someone at work – how it affects a person’s ability to earn income.

If you are an entrepreneur, a business owner or a professional who has been injured in a vehicle accident, then think carefully about who you hire to help get compensation. Many personal injury firms lack the experience to adequately present and understand your case.
