Traumatic Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can be caused by anything from a car accident to “slip and fall” incident, and they may be difficult to detect or diagnose. Terms like concussion and head trauma all refer to a blow to the head that causes disruption to the brain’s normal functioning, with severe injury often a possibility.  Any person who suspects they or a family member has suffered a brain injury after an accident should get proper medical treatment and advice immediately, even if there is no obvious injury to the head, because symptoms of brain injury can take time to appear. Securing legal advice from BWMK’s knowledgeable lawyers should be part of this process, because we can effectively assess medical evaluations to establish the severity of the harm suffered. Our early advice can be crucial in helping families take legal action to secure compensation for medical care, lost wages and other negative consequences of brain injuries.
