Brain Injury & Head Injury Cases

A brain injury or head injury can be devastating to the injured individual and to their family as well. It requires:

  • Long term care
  • Constant care
  • Constant supervision

The medical costs for these injuries can be overwhelming.

Our lawyers are experienced in brain injury cases and have achieved three of the largest judgments in the history of the Federal Tort Claims Act for brain injury cases.

We understand that the injured individual is usually facing a lifetime of disability and care.

Our evaluation and workup of these cases is complete and meticulous.

Typical head injuries include violent, traumatic events such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Falls that result in concussions or other injuries

However, there are many other possible causes of brain injury that are less visible, like:

  • Strokes
  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia accidents
  • Near drownings
  • Situations involving oxygen deprivation or near suffocation

We focus on winning brain and head injury claims against the U.S. Government.
