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.
