Head Injuries & Broken Bones
Head injuries are often devastating, life-changing events that have many causes, such as:
- Automobile accidents (sometimes even an airbag can cause a head injury)
- Construction site accidents (caused by falling objects or falls from ladders or scaffolds)
- Violent attacks
- Falls on slippery surfaces

Traumatic Brain Injury: The Invisible Scourge
Closed head injuries, including serious concussions and brain contusions, present challenges even to good lawyers. Opposing insurance companies or juries may question the seriousness of an injury that is not visible to the naked eye. Not long after a traumatic brain injury (TBI), a victim may appear to casual observers to be functioning normally.
However, family members, coworkers, and others who know the person well note personality changes, loss of memory, loss of coordination, loss of ability to concentrate, and/or difficulty carrying on a normal conversation. The victim may be unable to work as before, or to fulfill family and household responsibilities as before the accident.
Expert Witnesses Help Build a Strong Case for Brain Damage Victims
We are aggressive personal injury attorneys who work hard to locate any and all sources of liability and responsibility after a client has suffered a head injury. Our other major job is to help someone with a head injury obtain a thorough, authoritative evaluation and prognosis by physicians, neurologists, neuropsychologists, and other experts.
Bone Fractures are Also Disruptive and Very Costly
Broken bones present very different, but often equally costly and distressing, consequences. A hip or collarbone fracture may put a victim in a cast and/or traction, resulting in the need for ongoing home health care over a long period of time. A victim may be unable to drive himself or herself to work for many months.
We Aggressively Fight Against Unfair Insurance Companies
If necessary, we will file a lawsuit and demand a jury trial to ensure that our clients are adequately compensated for their losses associated with brain damage or a bone fracture.
