When you hit your head against a solid object, it transfers pressure to
your brain which ultimately bruises your brain. This may result in irreparable brain damage or memory loss. This type of brain damage injury
could result from a motorcycle accident, car crash, truck collision, a multi-vehicle pileup accident, freeway accident or slip and fall.

Every brain injury accident causes different ailments and injuries to each brain injury victim. These symptoms vary by individual. Many of the signs or symptoms of traumatic brain injuries are not immediately noticeable.
As a result of these brain injury accidents and the symptoms following the accident, the injured victim may be unable to return to work or to perform common everyday tasks. A severe traumatic brain injury requires constant care, attention and support by
a family member or a hired caregiver.
Similarly, the injured victim may lack the necessary motor skills to perform daily tasks, conduct a casual conversation or the ability to walk. As these people may require round-the-clock supervision, it is essential that they receive the maximum compensation.
Our attorneys understand and acknowledge that no settlement or jury verdict will reverse the effects of your brain injury, but such compensation could assist you with past medical expenses, physical therapy, lost wages, pain and suffering and future medical costs.
