Head & Brain Injuries
Sometimes head and brain injuries are immediate and obvious. Many others are missed or incorrectly diagnosed by emergency room staff or company doctors, only to surface with serious problems later on. Our successful experience in head and brain injury cases has allowed us incredible knowledge and understanding of what it takes to pursue a successful claim.
Head and brain injuries can occur after trip, slips, falls, hits to the head, and numerous other reasons. The complexity of the brain in its abilities and functionality requires medical experts to take incredible care and caution when examining for injuries. Head and brain injuries along with physiological problems can occur well after accidents in the work place. With conditions ranging from edema or hematoma to a concussion or other traumatic brain injury resulting in coma, symptoms that manifest later on may include:
- Memory loss in the short-term or long-term
- Anxiety or Depression
- Blurred or altered vision
- Chronic headaches or other head pains
- Cognitive difficulties which make it difficult to process information and speak.
In August 2007, after a Supply Ship Captain was viciously attacked by an unruly and inadequate crew off the coast of Africa, a major U.S. shipping company refused to honor its responsibilities to its employee who was suffering back, neck, head, and psychological problems as a result of the attack. Through great preparation and trial performance we were able to recover much greater compensation for our client than any offer from his company. (Roberts v. Rigdon Marine ). If you have a qualified claim, we will fight for recovery against large companies.
