Personal Injury Legal Services For People With Traumatic Brain Injuries
The attorneys of The Pellegrino Law Firm P.C., represent clients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries because of the negligence of others. We have won significant amounts of financial compensation for our clients with serious brain injuries.
What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of closed head injury, one that is caused by a blow to the head serious enough to cause a disruption in brain function. Falls, motor vehicle accidents, violence and sports injuries are among the most common causes of traumatic brain injury.
Brain injuries can result in a serious concussion, skull fracture, permanent brain damage, coma and death. The possible symptoms include memory loss, behavioral and emotional changes, and problems affecting thinking, language, learning, and sensation.
Imagine getting into your car and not knowing how to turn it on. Imagine going on a walk and forgetting how to get back home. Imagine not being able to express the thoughts and words that are in your head.
Why Are These Difficult Cases?
One of the cruel ironies of brain injury is that a person can suffer significant impairment, yet appear to be perfectly fine. They may show no outward signs of the physical injury, but be unable to resume their past lives. While the damage done by a traumatic brain injury can be profound, it often does not show up on a diagnostic test, like a CT scan or MRI.
How Do You Demonstrate Damages?
Our lawyers will refer you to medical specialists for neuropsychological testing that can help demonstrate the extent of your brain injury. We may also obtain testimony from people who can describe the differences they have observed in you before and after the injury. A certified life care planner may be consulted to assess the full extent of your current and future medical needs.
Then we will aggressively pursue full compensation for the damages you have suffered, including pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of future income, medical and rehabilitation expenses, and more.
