As the brain is responsible for so many of our bodies’ functions as well as our personalities and emotional capabilities, it’s not surprising that the symptoms and complications of brain injuries can be incredibly varied.
Brain injuries can cause symptoms that impact areas such as thinking, memory and learning as well as coordination and balance. Brain injury patients may also have problems handling or interpreting emotions, and may go through mild to extreme personality changes. Another issue experienced by people after a personal injury to the brain takes the form of changes to speech, hearing and/or vision. Depending on the severity of a traumatic brain injury—or TBI—people may experience all of none of these symptoms at varying degrees of severity.
Even something as simple as a slip and fall, or a minor bump to the head, can have catastrophic consequences. Here at Scranton Law Firm, we believe it’s our responsibility to stand up for the “regular guy” and do our utmost to get you the best settlement we can for your case. We have plenty of experience dealing with brain injury cases throughout California and have the reviews to prove just how satisfied our clients are. We know that going through a personal injury is one of the most stressful times in your life. And we are more than familiar with the far-reaching consequences of a brain injury, no matter how severe.
When assessing your case, we will look at the personal injury itself. What were the circumstances surrounding your injury? What evidence is there that another party was to blame? What should have been done to prevent your pain and suffering?
We also consider how your brain injury has impacted you. Brain injuries fall along a very wide spectrum, ranging from a mild concussion to a traumatic life-altering injury. In our eyes, no amount of pain and suffering that could have been prevented will ever be acceptable. But this will impact your case and any potential settlement. If you have been unable to work, care for your family or even enjoy your hobbies, we can use this information to help you. And it goes without saying that the cost of your medical care can greatly impact your final personal injury payout.
At Scranton Law Firm, we want to help you recover from your brain injury as much as you possibly can. As lawyers, the way we contribute to your recovery is by making sure you are protected from the stress of a legal case as much as possible—most of our cases settle out of court—and by doing our best to get you the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses and any additional comforts to ensure your wellbeing through this stressful time.
