Head & Brain Injury

Head & Brain Injury

When it comes to your brain, every injury is serious. Whether it is evident right after an accident or takes months to reveal itself, a brain injury is a devastating injury that has lifelong effects for victims. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to negligence, it is important to have an experienced attorney helping you pursue compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages. At Gelber & O’Connell, LLC, we represent individuals and families in many traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other head injury cases.

Subtle Symptoms Can Signify A Serious Brain Injury

After an accident, it is important for the victims and their families to watch for the symptoms of brain injury, which can include:

  • Memory loss
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Sudden headaches and migraines
  • Blurred or lost vision
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Symptoms don’t often show up right away, so it is important to pay close attention to these symptoms so you can determine if they are occurring. You need to make a note of when they begin and seek immediate treatment, as it is critical to obtaining the best recovery.

How We Use Medical Evidence To Build Your Case

The neurological damage from brain injuries takes extensive resources to diagnose and treat. Testing, including the use of MRIs, CAT scans, etc., is often necessary and can seem overwhelming. Our lawyers understand these tests and the long-term medical care sometimes necessary so we can be there to support our clients if they have to go through what is a very difficult time in their lives. Our attorneys also fight to ensure that any settlement or judgment provides the necessary recovery for past, present and future medical treatment, physical therapy and mental health services. We pursue personal injury claims involving a variety of brain injuries, including everything from concussions to traumatic brain injury.
