Brain Injury

Every brain injury is different, and every accident victim's recovery will vary. Some people are able to return to normal after proper medical care and treatment. Some brain injury victims may always struggle with the often mysterious effects of a brain injury.

Types Of Brain Injuries: We Can Help

A "brain injury" is a very broad term. Brain injuries can run the full gamut from a minor bump on the head to living in a persistent vegetative state. In between these extremes are a range of injuries including the following:

  • Concussion
  • Contusion
  • Closed head injury
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Hypoxic brain injury
  • Other brain injuries

At the Boston law offices of Dane Shulman Associates, LLC, most brain injuries we see are caused by car accidents. Other causes include a slip and fall on ice, accidents involving falling items (in big box discount stores, in warehouses or at construction sites, for example), which are sometimes workplace injuries.

If a head injury was a workplace injury, then you likely have a workers' compensation claim. There may also be a third-party liability claim against someone other than your employer.

Symptoms Of A Brain Injury

A brain injury victim may recover nearly completely, or he or she may remain seriously and obviously impaired indefinitely. In many cases, he or she may appear to recover, but experience lingering ill effects including:

  • Dizziness
  • Irritability
  • Migraine headaches
  • Moodiness
  • Personality change
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Inability to hold a job

Whatever the circumstances behind your brain injury, our law firm is ready to help ensure that you receive all compensation that you are eligible for. This may involve undergoing neuropsychological testing, MRIs, CT scans or other tests. We are prepared to fight every foe and get full and fair compensation from every available source.
