Do Not Underestimate Brain Injuries
Brain injuries are unlike any other kind of injury. In some cases, symptoms of a head injury sustained in a motor vehicle accident or construction accident can seem minor and are slow to surface, but are actually indicative of a serious injury. If a brain injury suffered in an accident caused by negligence interrupted your life or ended the life of a loved one, we can help achieve justice for you.
We are the Chambersburg, Franklin County and central Pennsylvania personal injury law firm of DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger P.C.. Since 1982, we have aggressively – and successfully – fought to protect the rights of accident victims whose lives will never be the same due to catastrophic injury suffered in accidents they did not cause.
Experience, Skill And Compassion
These kinds of life-changing injuries may require years or a lifetime of expensive therapy, long-term care and sophisticated medical equipment. DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger safeguards the interests of accident victims who suffer from:
- Closed head injury
- Head trauma
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
In other cases, a brain injury has immediate, severe consequences, including brain damage that leads to a permanent disability or condition. In the worst cases, brain damage can lead to paralysis or death. We can also help you by answering the hard questions in your case, such as:
When Can I Seek Compensation For A Brain Injury?
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of these injuries, and if the liable driver caused an accident through negligence, you may have a claim. This is also true for slip-and-fall injuries.
Our goal as your legal representation in your claim is to see that your compensation covers all the costs and consequences of your accident, including
- Lost income while recovering
- Loss of earning potential due to your injury
- Remodeling, renovating or relocating to accommodate your disability
- Current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
We can utilize our negotiation and litigation skills to maximize the settlement you earn for your injuries. If your injury happened at work, you may also qualify for workers’ compensation.
What Are The Symptoms Of A Brain Injury?
There are many different ways that a TBI can present itself. It is important to recognize these symptoms, as they can appear unrelated to the injury. Some common signs of a TBI include:
- Dizziness or imbalance
- Trouble speaking
- Sensory issues
- Trouble sleeping or staying awake
- Memory issues
- Mood swings
If you suspect you are representing any of these signs, or anything else that may indicate a TBI, seek medical attention immediately.
Can A Brain Injury Heal?
The medical world surrounding TBIs is constantly making breakthroughs. While a person can show improvement after a TBI, current and future medicines and treatments can also help a TBI victim recover even more after an accident. Because the best care for a victim is expensive, it is important that the compensation they receive for their accident can provide for them well into the future for their medical costs.
