Brain injuries have two main causes - the interruption of the oxygen supply to the brain, and trauma, most often blunt force. Brain injuries caused by oxygen depletion, also known as anoxic brain injuries, are characteristic of certain birth injuries, swimming or diving accidents, and surgical accidents involving anesthesia problems.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are common results of serious motor vehicle or motorcycle accidents, truck collisions, untreated aneurisms, construction or workplace accidents, or any other forceful impact to the head.
Whether anoxic or traumatic in origin, serious brain damage presents special challenges in litigation because of the difficulty in many cases of accurately assessing the extent of the injuries, the treatment options, the long-term prognosis, and the impact on the quality of life for the victim and his or her family. Closed head injuries can be especially difficult, because of the delayed onset or subtle nature of many of the symptoms.
Our experience with the proof of damages in serious head injury cases can represent a major advantage to the families of traumatic or anoxic brain injury victims. Our own medical staff, together with our forensic medical experts, work with our clients’ treating physicians to develop the best information possible about the extent of their injuries, as well as the prospects of further recovery or future surgeries. We also work with economists, rehabilitation therapists, and home nursing professionals to determine the cost of long-term care and treatment. Our North Carolina brain trauma lawyers look forward to helping and individuals who have suffered this catastrophic injury and their families.
