Concussions and Brain Injuries From Head Trauma
The human brain is complex but fragile. The jarring from a car accident or other violent impact can alter not only cognitive function, but a person’s senses, speech, mobility, emotions and personality. Some brain injuries are severe and devastating and reveal themselves immediately. Others, however, are subtle and slow to be diagnosed. The person may have just been dazed by the accident, or had a brief loss of consciousness, but may otherwise initially appear to be fine. Yet that person may later develop memory loss, headaches, cognitive problems, irritability, and a change in personality that may only be noticed by close family and friends. These are known as mild traumatic brain injuries.
Attorney Mike Hancock is dedicated to achieving justice for accident victims and their families after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) by holding negligent parties and their insurance companies accountable for paying for all the harms and losses caused by the accident. He has earned verdicts and settlements for our clients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and head injuries from automobile collisions, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, falling accidents and other head trauma.
Helping the Families of Traumatic Brain Injury Victims
We help clients and their families connect with brain injury specialists to get the care they need and work closely with the patient, family members and medical providers to document the symptoms of concussion and other brain injuries: cognitive impairment, memory loss or difficulty concentrating; headaches and dizziness; impaired vision, hearing or speech; impaired motor function; emotional outbursts, mood swings, depression or personality change.
We commonly consult with doctors, hospitals, physical therapists and occupational therapists, vocational rehabilitation specialists and economists, life care planners and other professionals to calculate our clients’ full measure of damages including:
- Medical bills and future care
- Nursing or assisted living care
- Psychiatric care
- Disability and accommodations
- Lost wages and future earnings
- Job training
- Pain and suffering
- Lost capacity for enjoyment of life
Our goal is to make this incredibly complicated process easier by giving support to not only the victims but the families. A traumatic brain injury affects more than just the injured and we understand that. We are here to support the entire family to make this process as simple as possible.
