Vigorously Representing Accident Victims
A concussion or closed head injury may have a permanent impact on the quality of the victim's life, as well as family members' lives. Medical science is always progressing, however, and medical care and rehabilitative services can make a positive difference in the lives of many people who suffer brain injuries.
At my law practice, The Maurer Law Firm, PLLC, I represent victims of all types of head injuries, ranging from Grade 1 concussions to traumatic brain injury. I work tirelessly to help my clients get full compensation for their losses, and needed medical care and services. For a free consultation about your case, call 866-534-7013.
How Do Brain Injuries Happen?
External impact to the head during motor vehicle accidents is the leading cause of brain injuries in the U.S. Other major causes include falls, assaults, sporting accidents, strokes and events that restrict the flow of oxygen to the brain, such as drowning or obstetric malpractice.
When preparing a legal case involving a negligent brain injury, it is very important to establish the liability of the responsible party. I have extensive resources, including accident investigators and experts in various medical specialties who can aid in this effort. As a trial attorney with more than 30 years of experience, I will work diligently to build a strong and successful case for you.
Applying Medical Science to the Law
An impact to the head can cause a gross structural injury to the brain (the primary injury). That injury can also lead to one or more secondary injuries (particularly in traumatic brain injury cases) such as cerebral hypoxia, cerebral ischemia, cerebral edema, hydrocephalus and brain herniation. Primary and secondary injuries can adversely affect memory, cognitive abilities and physical functions of the patient. Bedside cognitive testing or tests performed in other settings can provide important information in this regard.
My firm works with brain specialists to determine the extent of brain damage and the medical care and services my clients will need. This is especially important in closed head injury cases, because the effects of an impact to the head may only reveal themselves over time. For this reason, you should not rush to accept an insurance settlement before sufficient time has passed and the victim has been thoroughly examined by one or more specialists.
