We Present Damages Claims in Head Injury Cases
You’d think that a serious head injury case would be relatively easy to prove in court. Not so. The brain remains poorly understood and the nature of head injuries often means that symptoms are delayed, misdiagnosed, or allowed to worsen over time. To avoid the risk that a head or brain injury claim in your accident case might be overlooked or undervalued, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at Wells and McElwee, P.C., in Athens.
Proper presentation of head injury claims requires thorough investigation
Except in the most severe traumatic brain injury cases involving massive loss of cognitive function or extended periods of coma, there’s always a lot of room for argument in a head injury case. That’s why we work closely with you, your family, your treating physicians and forensic medical experts to make sure that your injury is understood and documented as thoroughly as possible.
We not only closely monitor your symptoms and recovery, we also look into your previous level of brain function to define a clear baseline for comparison. Even at the relatively mild levels of brain damage characteristic of a closed head injury, the immediate and continuing symptoms can be serious: loss of memory, change in personality, chronic headaches, change in sleep patterns or reduced capacity for concentration.
Our approach to head injury evidence can make a significant difference in the amount of damages that you might recover across a range of personal injury claims:
We have the experience and skill with complex medical evidence that allows us to present contested damages claims in clear and convincing terms. We also make a thorough demonstration of your current and projected needs for treatment.
