The effects of a brain injury, such as a concussion, can be severe, affecting individual victims and their families. The recovery costs can be astronomical, leaving people unsure of where to turn as they face mounting medical bills and other costs. Having an experienced personal injury attorney can make all the difference during such a difficult time.
At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., we understand the challenges you face after suffering a brain injury and welcome the opportunity to help you get the full compensation you deserve. We treat our clients like family and fight aggressively to make sure they are treated with the respect they deserve.
A traumatic brain injury lawyer can help you in several ways.
When you have suffered from a traumatic brain injury, it can be challenging to navigate the legal system. You may not know where to start or how to proceed with your case. That's where we come in. We will work with you and your family, helping you get the treatment and compensation that you need so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries and moving forward with your life.
We work on a contingency basis for personal injury claims. A contingency fee basis means we do not charge you anything unless we win a settlement in or out of court. This fee structure ensures we work hard for your case and that you don't have even more out-of-pocket expenses during a stressful time. We also offer contingency fee schedules for other practice areas, such as:
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are classified into three categories: mild, moderate, and severe.
Mild TBIs are the most common. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, nausea, trouble concentrating or sleeping, fatigue, irritability or anxiety, depression or sadness, and sensitivity to noise or light. These symptoms may last from a few days to a few weeks.
Moderate TBIs can cause more serious effects such as confusion and amnesia that last longer than those of a mild TBI; however, they do not usually cause permanent damage to the brain.
Severe TBIs often result in death or permanent disability. Severe TBIs can cause coma with brain damage lasting more than 1 month; vegetative state (a condition in which people show no signs of awareness); or persistent vegetative state (a condition in which people show some signs of awareness but continue to have severely limited consciousness).
While the symptoms of brain injuries do not always present themselves immediately, they include:
These injuries can change the way people act, changing the dynamics of essential relationships at home and work. We will work to make sure that all of your damages are taken care of. If your brain injury keeps you from working, we will seek compensation for lost wages and damages such as medical expenses and pain and suffering.
