A trauma, or medical or surgical injury to your brain or spine can change your life forever. Spinal cord and brain injuries are considered catastrophic because of the disabling nature of the conditions they cause and the financial costs associated with treating those injuries. If lifetime medical care is required for the victim, the costs associated with such care can be in the millions of dollars. Such devastating injuries affect not only the victim’s life, but also the lives of the people who love and care for the victim.

Catastrophic Brain Injuries
A brain injury often occurs as the result of a serious auto, truck or motorcycle accident. It can also occur during a construction site accident. No matter what caused the brain injury, the victim will most likely require extensive medical treatment, long-term care, and may be unable to return to his or her chosen occupation.
Brain injuries, such as a closed head traumatic brain injury or a concussion, are difficult to spot. Yet medical problems associated with them may increase over time. It is imperative that the victim seek medical care immediately if any of the following symptoms are noticed following a trauma to the victim’s head, difficulty in attention and concentration, vision changes, memory loss or changes, lethargy, or inability to read, understand and remember a book or newspaper that is inconsistent with their known prior abilities. Brain injuries may affect your mental, emotional and physical abilities. Our firm is very experienced in working with experts to determine the most effective strategy to document the victim’s brain injury and win full and fair compensation.
Severe Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
A back, neck and spinal cord injury can result in lifetime medical care and loss of employment. These injuries may lead to other more serious medical conditions. They may require the victim to make dramatic changes in the way he or she lives. We win the financial compensation necessary to cover such life-altering changes.
