Brain Injury Litigation

Injury to the brain has been called the "invisible injury" because it often occurs without any outward, physical signs of injury to the skull or to the brain itself. The symptoms and the causes of many brain injuries can be mild and deceiving. Some of the common signs and symptoms of brain injury include:

  • Difficulty speaking
  • Change in personality
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Headaches
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Difficulty focusing on more than one task at a time

The symptoms and consequences of a brain injury can last a lifetime, and therefore, it is important to have attorneys who fully understand the causes of brain injury, the consequences and the necessary treatment and rehabilitation for brain injury.

At Pierce & Thornton, we have experience in dealing with brain and other physically disabling injuries which occur in different situations. We have been privileged to successfully represent the interests of individuals who have suffered debilitating brain injuries. One gentleman sustained a brain injury on a construction site after being pinned against a wall by a piece of heavy equipment. Another victim suffered anoxia (or lack of oxygen to the brain) that resulted from medical negligence while he was a patient a local hospital. We have also successfully tried to verdict a traumatic brain injury case where our client had been attacked and beaten until unconscious. We are currently litigating a brain injury case involving a serious automobile crash caused by a drunk driver.

If you or someone you know has suffered a head or brain injury from an automobile accident, medical negligence, a slip and fall or a motorcycle or bicycle accident, contact our attorneys as soon as possible so that we can begin working on your case.

At Pierce & Thornton, we understand that we need to recover the maximum compensation for brain injury since the money may be necessary to support you or your loved one for many years.
