Here at ShermoenJaksa, PLLC we have years of experience in dealing with legal issues resulting from a personal injury, especially Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs).
Every year, up to 1.7 million people in the U.S. suffer a brain injury, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A TBI can be devastating and completely change the personality or functionality of the person suffering from the injury.
A brain injury often results after a serious blow to the head. However, many times it can be much more subtle and not properly diagnosed initially. Symptoms of TBI that should be discussed with your doctor include: excessive fatigue or sleepiness, headaches, loss of smell or taste, word retrieval issues and memory lapses. Many of the claims we see involving brain injuries are from car accidents, falls, workplace accidents, being exposed to toxic elements, and a wide variety of other events.
If you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury or workplace accident resulting in a brain injury and you think someone is legally liable, it is important that you find an attorney skilled in working with TBI personal injury cases. Or, even if you are negotiating with an insurance company, making a workers’ compensation claim, or applying for other benefits it is best to speak to a personal injury lawyer.
