Advocacy in Connection with Adult and Pediatric Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries
The Centers for Disease Control estimates that at least 5.3 million Americans, approximately 2% of the U.S. population, currently have a long-term or lifelong need for help to perform activities of daily living as a result of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The trauma of hitting your head or other injury to the brain can have serious consequences, including bleeding and swelling of the brain, and can cause permanent disability or even death. Nervous system injuries may also involve injury to another part of the central nervous system, the spinal cord. You and your family are entitled to be compensated for your injury, suffering, medical and hospital care, current and future wage loss and the cost of future care and rehabilitation.

TYPES OF CLAIMS
Head injuries commonly occur as a result of motor vehicle traffic crashes, particularly with large commercial trucks and 18-wheelers, as well as from work or construction site accidents, explosions, falls or defective products. Traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury in children and adults can be the result of medical malpractice, for example, the failure to properly diagnose or treat an injury or a medication error in treating an injury.
