The Consequences Of Catastrophic Head Injuries
Brain injuries can cause profound and permanent impairment of physical and cognitive abilities, as well as coma and death. If someone else’s negligence caused you to suffer a head or brain injury, you have a right to financial compensation for the damages you have suffered.
At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., in Worcester, Massachusetts, our personal injury lawyers have won significant verdicts and settlements for clients who have suffered all types of brain injuries.
Even a minor accident can result in a serious brain injury that has an impact on your entire life and future. We represent clients and families that are dealing with the aftermath of all types of brain trauma, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries caused by a blow to the head strong enough to disrupt brain function. Car accidents, falls, getting hit by or against an object, violence and sports accidents are among the leading causes of traumatic brain injury (TBI).
- Hypoxic brain injuries that occur when the brain is deprived of adequate oxygen. Medical malpractice, birth injury, anesthesia malpractice and drowning accidents can all result in hypoxic brain injuries.
The symptoms of brain injury are often subtle. Sometimes, family members begin to notice memory gaps, personality changes and emotional problems. The symptoms may also appear over time, not immediately after the accident.
Establishing The Extent Of Your Head Injury
Our attorneys will arrange for clients with brain injuries to undergo neuropsychological testing and be evaluated by a neurologist who can determine the extent of the injury and the degree of impairment.
We will work with a certified life-care planner who will define the medical services, adaptive technology and rehabilitation therapy you will need because of the injury. Then we will aggressively pursue financial compensation for the full extent of the damages.
