Traumatic Brain Injuries
We handle traumatic brain injury cases in Massachusetts and Connecticut. Brain injuries can result from any type of trauma to the head. A person can sustain a brain injury from a motor vehicle or motorcycle accident, slip and fall or trip and fall or medical malpractice. Sometimes brain injuries are easy to diagnose, such as when there has been a puncture to the skull. In the case of a closed head injury, however, diagnosis is much more complicated. In these situations, the victim may exhibit personality changes, emotional disturbances, inability to concentrate, confusion and irritability. These symptoms can worsen over time. These symptoms can be permanent and they can dramatically change the victim’s life. The problem with traumatic brain injury cases is that sometimes these symptoms can be subtle and difficult to detect. In fact, sometimes the symptoms may be invisible to all but the victim’s immediate family and close friends. If you or a family member has suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result of wrongful conduct it is important that you work with a qualified team of medical providers, including a neuropsychologist, in order to diagnose the true extent of the damage and identify what therapies will be necessary to minimize the effects on the injury. It is equally important that you work with an attorney who is committed to ensuring that you receive full and fair compensation for the damages and losses—no matter how hard they are to detect.
