Attorneys Fighting For Justice After Your Traumatic Brain Injury
By now, nearly everyone knows what the term “traumatic brain injury” means. It has replaced more euphemistic terms like “concussion” or “getting your bell rung.” And the change in terminology is a sign of an increased understanding that these injuries are highly serious – even devastating.
If you or a family member suffered a traumatic brain injury caused by the negligence of another person, Barney & Karamanis, LLP, can help you pursue justice and compensation in civil court. We understand the medical science of these injuries, and we know just how expensive they can be to treat. Our attorneys will use their extensive courtroom experience to ensure that you don’t have to shoulder those costs.
Who And What Caused Your Brian Injury?
There are many common accident scenarios likely to result in different types of brain injury. These include:
Car accidents: If someone else struck your vehicle, it may have sent your head into or through the windshield. You could have also suffered a brain injury even without striking another surface, because high impact forces can cause your brain to strike against the inside of your skull.
Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents: Falling and hitting your head on the ground isn’t just embarrassing; it can cause severe and even permanent damage to your brain. If you slipped and fell or tripped and fell due to dangerous conditions on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold the property owner liable in court.
Struck by falling or flying objects: Perhaps you were struck by falling power tools as you walked past a construction site. Maybe you were jogging through the park and were hit by a baseball from a nearby game played on a sandlot. These blows to the head are likely to cause significant injury.
Intentional assaults: Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries are often the result of intentional violence. If you were attacked by someone else, unprovoked, and suffered a brain injury because of it, you can sue that person for personal injury in addition to any criminal charges they may face.
