The human brain is your body’s mission control. It is the most extraordinary and complex creation in the universe, home to your mind and personality, your memories and hopes. Because this sensitive, vital organ controls bodily functions, emotions, thought, and reasoning, it stands that a catastrophic injury to the brain is particularly consequential. The resulting damage – from loss of speech, diminished motor skills, and memory loss can affect your ability to work, how you interact with your family, and may, in the worst of scenarios, even require around the clock care.
There are many types of brain injuries, including skull fracture, brain bruising, brain swelling, and injury to the frontal lobe, which frequently causes personality changes. These injuries are usually the result of a car accident, workplace mishap, negligent medical care at birth, a violent assault, a defective product, or an injury caused by negligent care, like diving at an unsafe pool.
Traumatic brain injury (tbi), such as debilitating brain damage, can cripple a family physically, emotionally, and financially. Victims and their loved ones face hardships like significant medical costs now and in the future, physical and mental rehabilitation costs, wage loss, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental anguish and suffering. Sometimes, in cases such as this, it can often be difficult to prove brain injury because many diagnostic tests, such as CT and PET scans, EEGs, and MRIs, are unable to pinpoint an injury.
However, the attorneys at Beckman & Marion have achieved significant compensation and supportive care for the remainder of the victim’s life by presenting jurors with specific, detailed testimony from leading doctors, specialists, and life care planners. In addition, we are able to impress upon jurors the full extent of the suffering and loss experienced by the victim on a daily basis through the use of photos, videos, and accounts from those who know the plaintiff best. While the victim and his or her loved one’s lives may be unalterably changed, we can at least provide the legal strength you need to find answers and see that justice is achieved.
