We Want To Assist You In Your Recovery!
No Two Brain Injuries are the Same
No two brain injuries are the same so it’s important that your claim is treated that way and not handled with a cookie-cutter process.
Our first step is to find out what you want from your claim. We understand that a brain injury will likely be a burden for years to come as you work through recovery, therapy, and treatment. We want to make sure that we understand exactly what your goals are so we can respect them every step of the way.
Next, we’ll review your accident report, police report, and any other documentation related to your injury. If necessary, we’ll use our experts to help recreate your accident, answer any critical questions, or resolve any unresolved issues. The goal is to undeniably prove fault and that your injuries were caused by the other parties’ negligence so that the insurance companies can’t deny your claim or offer you a low, unfair settlement.
At every step, our team will look for creative, innovative solutions that are suited to your unique injuries and circumstances, as well as your goals.
As part of our representation, we’ve also created a substantial network of medical professionals who can help you with your recovery long after your case is resolved.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is when physical trauma interrupts the normal function of the brain, such as bruising, bleeding, tearing, or twisting of brain tissue. Symptoms can include:
- Severe or consistent headaches
- Memory loss
- Vision problems
- Trouble with coordination
- Changes in personality or mood
TBI’s come in two forms: acquired and in-born. Acquired brain injuries occur any time after birth and are often caused by a sudden or forceful impact to the head. In-born brain injuries are those that develop before birth. Sometimes, in-born brain injuries are naturally occurring, but they’re often caused by negligence by a medical professional.
The law provides substantial protection to those who suffered a TBI due to the negligence or recklessness of another, whether it was acquired or inborn. Our team has years of experience representing victims of both and we’ll help you understand all your rights and options.
