What Does a Brain or Spine Injury Lawsuit Entail?

With a brain or spine injury lawsuit, you have to prove negligence led to your injuries. The victim is responsible for providing this evidence in a civil case. Our personal injury attorney reviews the evidence and determines if you have a case. If you are going up against an insurance company, hospital, doctor, or other healthcare providers, it’s crucial that you have someone on your side who can match their legal power.

Proving negligence in brain or spine injury cases largely depends on the evidence. Through photos, statements, videos, medical records, and other documentation, you must be able to show that your injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence. There are many types of cases that can result in these injuries, so it’s important to share the evidence and talk through your case with a brain and spine injury attorney as soon as possible.

Why We Use Medical Experts to Prove Negligence in Brain and Spine Injury Cases

At our law firm, we have over 40 years of experience in litigating brain and spine injury lawsuits. We understand that at this difficult time, you need someone fighting for you.  The other side will have its own medical experts to fight for them. This is why medical expert testimony is so important.

Medical experts provide the link to negligence by showing how negligence led to the injury. For example, a doctor may have made a mistake on the operating table, leading to lifelong consequences. In other cases, you may need a crash expert to show that it was the other driver acting negligently that resulted in a terrible wreck that caused your brain injuries.

When it comes to proving damages, you also want medical experts who can show the devastation and losses you’ve experienced are due to these long-term injuries. For example, you may have endured a spinal cord injury resulting in nerve damage, paralysis, paraplegia, or other loss of motor functions. Depending on the severity of these injuries, you can pursue damages for medical bills, ongoing medical care, loss of wages, and more.

We have the resources and expert brain and spinal injury attorneys you need to negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and, when necessary, fight for you in court.

Signs and Symptoms of a Brain Injury

If you or a loved one are experiencing symptoms such as slurred speech, pain in the neck or head, or numbness following an accident, it’s crucial to seek medical attention immediately. These signs could indicate a mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), commonly known as a concussion, or even a more severe head injury like a contusion or skull fracture. In some cases, these symptoms may not appear immediately after the injury, making it even more essential to get a thorough examination to rule out any potential damage.

More severe brain injuries can lead to a loss of consciousness or even a coma, often resulting from significant swelling or a brain or cord injury. Recognizing these symptoms early and seeking the appropriate medical care can be crucial for recovery. If you’re suffering from a brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, our team of personal injury lawyers and spine injury lawyers are here to help. We’re experienced in handling cases involving concussions and other types of brain injuries, and we will fight to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your injury and suffering.

How are Brain Injuries Classified?

Brain injuries, often referred to as TBIs (Traumatic Brain Injuries), are typically classified based on the severity and type of damage to the brain. This classification can range from mild concussions to severe, life-altering injuries. Similarly, cord injuries can be categorized as incomplete SCI (Spinal Cord Injury) if there is some function below the level of injury, or complete if there is no function below the level of injury.

These types of injuries often occur due to accidents or instances of malpractice, leading to disability and requiring extensive treatment and rehabilitation. Understanding the classification of a brain or cord injury is crucial in a personal injury case, as it can greatly impact the level of compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and damages for pain and suffering. If you or a loved one has experienced catastrophic injuries due to an accident or malpractice, it’s vital to seek immediate medical attention in an emergency room and consult with a skilled brain injury attorney who can guide you through the legal process.

The physical symptoms of brain and spinal cord injuries can vary greatly depending on the severity and location of the injury. Common symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, loss of balance, difficulty with motor skills, numbness, or even paralysis. If you’ve been involved in a car accident or other traumatic event and are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s critical to see doctors immediately for diagnosis and treatment.

Early intervention can lead to more successful recovery outcomes. Besides, if your injuries are due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to claim damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our experienced team of brain injury lawyers can guide you through this process, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve while you focus on your recovery.

Brain and spinal cord injuries can often lead to cognitive impairments that affect memory, attention, and problem-solving abilities. These symptoms may not be as immediately apparent as physical symptoms but can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.

If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident or other incident leading to a personal injury, it’s important to consult with medical experts who can properly diagnose and treat these cognitive symptoms. Furthermore, our team of dedicated spinal injury lawyers is well-versed in the complexities of these cases. We understand the long-term challenges faced by those with cognitive impairments and will fight tirelessly to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Beyond physical and cognitive symptoms, brain and spinal cord injuries can also present with emotional and behavioral changes. These may include mood swings, anxiety, depression, irritability, or changes in personality. It’s essential to understand that these are legitimate symptoms of a spinal injury and should be taken seriously. Consulting an expert who specializes in this field is crucial for a comprehensive treatment approach, which may include various types of therapy.

Our injury attorneys have extensive experience in these practice areas and can help navigate the complex legal landscape surrounding these injuries. We understand the burden of medical bills and the challenge of dealing with health insurance companies. Let us handle the legalities so you can focus on your recovery and well-being.

What to Do if You Suspect You Have a Brain Injury

If you suspect you have sustained a brain injury, perhaps due to a car accident or other traumatic event, it’s essential to act promptly. First, seek immediate medical attention even if the symptoms seem minor. Brain injuries can often have delayed or subtle symptoms that only medical professionals can accurately diagnose. Documenting these early stages with a healthcare provider can also prove invaluable should you need to pursue a legal claim. Next, consider consulting with an injury attorney who specializes in brain injuries and spinal accidents. Our attorneys understand the medical complexities of these cases and can help ensure that your rights are protected, and that you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Remember, your health is paramount; let us handle the legal complexities while you focus on recovery.

Diagnosing a Traumatic Brain Injury

Diagnosing a traumatic brain injury is a critical step in the recovery process and it requires a thorough examination by medical professionals. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and they might not be immediately apparent following an accident.

Healthcare experts will typically use a combination of physical assessments and imaging tests, such as CT scans or MRIs, to determine the extent of the injury. Once a diagnosis is made, it’s crucial to consult with a personal injury attorney who specializes in brain injuries. Our law firm has extensive experience in this area, understanding the medical intricacies involved, and advocating for victims’ rights. We can guide you through the legal complexities surrounding your case, helping to ensure that you receive the compensation you’re entitled to for your injury.

Complications of Traumatic Head Injuries

Traumatic head injuries can lead to a myriad of complications, both immediate and long-term. These could range from physical impairments such as headaches, dizziness, and sensory loss, to cognitive and emotional issues like memory problems, mood swings, or depression. In severe cases, victims may even face life-altering conditions such as coma or chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

It is important to understand that these complications not only affect the health of the victim but also drastically impact their quality of life. At our personal injury law firm, our attorneys are well-versed in the complexities of brain injury cases. We are committed to fighting for your rights and helping you secure the compensation you deserve to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Let us take on the legal burden so you can focus on your recovery.

What Does a Brain or Spine Injury Lawsuit Entail?

Brain and spinal cord injuries tend to happen from accidents with trucks, cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles, but they can also occur from medical malpractice or even slip-and-fall accidents. We have handled hundreds of different personal injury cases that involved brain and spinal cord injuries. These types of injury cases are different as they require more medical evidence, including records that detail your injuries and medical expenses. These are some of the cases resulting in head trauma, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries that we have represented recently:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Defective/dangerous productions
  • Dangerous prescription drugs
  • Bicycle accidents

At our law firm, we talk to everyone who has a personal injury case, but those cases with more traumatic injuries really hit hard. You deserve to live life the way you were meant to, had it not been for someone else’s negligence. To help you get justice, we’d love to hear about your case and provide an evaluation.

What is a spinal cord injury?

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is a serious type of trauma that occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord, often due to a sudden blow or cut. This can result in a disruption of the nerve signals that the spinal cord sends between the brain and the rest of the body, potentially leading to loss of function and sensation below the level of the injury. This type of injury is commonly seen in motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and other significant accidents.

What are the symptoms and complications of an SCI?

Symptoms of a spinal cord injury can vary widely depending on the severity and location of the injury, but may include loss of movement or sensation, pain or discomfort, difficulty breathing, or changes in sexual function. Complications can range from respiratory problems and bladder or bowel dysfunction, to chronic pain and mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.

How do doctors diagnose a spinal cord injury?

Diagnosing an SCI involves a thorough medical evaluation, including a physical examination and a review of the patient’s medical history. Imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs are often used to confirm the diagnosis and assess the extent of the damage.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can be categorized as either complete or incomplete. A complete SCI results in total loss of sensation and motor function below the level of the injury, while an incomplete SCI means there is some remaining function. The injury can also be classified by the area of the spine affected: cervical (neck), thoracic (chest), lumbar (lower back), or sacral (pelvic).

Recovering Compensation for Your Spinal Cord Injury

Recovering from a spinal cord injury is not only a physical challenge but also a financial one. The cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term care can be overwhelming. That’s where our law firm steps in. We understand the full spectrum of expenses associated with spinal cord injuries, and we’re committed to helping you recover the maximum compensation you deserve.

Our experienced attorneys will meticulously calculate the costs of your current and future medical expenses, lost income, decreased earning potential, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. We will fight relentlessly on your behalf to ensure that the responsible party is held accountable and that you receive fair compensation to support your recovery journey.

One of the major costs associated with a spinal cord injury is medical expenses. These can include emergency care, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, and ongoing therapies.

If your injury has impacted your ability to work, you may be eligible for compensation for lost wages and diminished earning capacity.

Long-term care, home modifications, and assistive devices are often necessary following a spinal cord injury. These costs can be factored into your compensation.

In addition to physical damages, you may also be compensated for the emotional distress and decreased quality of life caused by your injury.

At our law firm, we understand the devastating impact a spinal cord injury can have on your life. Our experienced attorneys are here to help you navigate the complex legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve.
