Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries

Has someone close to you suffered a brain injury?

Every 21 seconds, someone in the United States sustains a traumatic brain injury. Motor vehicle accidents, falls and sports mishaps are the leading causes.

Another daily tragedy in the United States is brain injury related to medical care. When a patient is misdiagnosed or has a threatening problem mistreated, a serious brain injury can result.

Lead poisoning of children is yet another serious cause of brain injury.

Whatever the cause, a brain injury changes forever the life of a patient and his or her family.

This information is intended to help patients with brain injuries and their families research those injuries, learn about care options, and understand the legal options that may be available to them. For some families, a lawsuit can be one important tool for obtaining the funds needed to pay for a brain-injured patient's care and rehabilitation.

We have divided Brain Injury into three main sections:

Each section has extensive information and further resources.

Legal options

Good medical care can often minimize or prevent a significant brain injury from one of these medical conditions. Or there can be other ways in which the brain injury could have been prevented. So a lawsuit can be appropriate in some circumstances, depending on what an investigation by a qualified lawyer finds.
