Any injury can cause inconvenience or more significant disruptions to daily life. If you or a loved one has sustained a head injury in an accident and now must deal with a traumatic brain injury, the results can be devastating.
Damage to the senses can cause loss of site or hearing.
Damage to speech functions may make verbal communication difficult or impossible.
Loss of communication between the brain and the systems controlling movement can affect the ability to use the hands or walk.
The results of a traumatic brain injury may be temporary, but they are often permanent. People who sustain traumatic brain injuries are unable to earn a living. Not only can they no longer care for families, but now they need daily care, possibly for the rest of their lives.
A serious injury, requiring lengthy and expensive medical treatments or resulting in permanent disability, involves costs that are difficult to identify and quantity:
Current and future medical expenses
Rehabilitation and physical therapy
Loss of potential earnings
Personal and family care
Quality of life
Each personal injury lawyer at Lear Werts has the necessary experience and resources to recover fair compensation for victims with claims involving traumatic brain injury. We will present compelling evidence to the insurance negotiator, judge, or jury, demonstrating the extent of your injury and current and future costs of rehabilitation, therapy, special equipment, and special accommodations you may require.
Since one insurance policy may be inadequate to cover all of the losses, it is important to investigate all sources of compensation for victims of serious injuries and families with wrongful death claims. Attorneys at Lear Werts are prepared to handle complex or unusual cases involving multiple claims in Missouri state and federal courts.
In many cases, a fair and just settlement can be recovered quickly through negotiations with insurance providers. If it is in your best interests, however, litigators at Lear Werts will aggressively pursue compensation through a trial.
If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury in an accident, contact a Lear Werts LLP personal injury lawyer at 573-875-1991 (or toll free 877-875-1991), or contact us online to arrange for a complementary consultation about your situation.
