Most mild brain injuries will heal when treated properly. Even some traumatic
brain injuries, given the proper treatment, may heal over time. For many
individuals, however, this kind of injury will leave some impairment,
which can actually worsen in the years following the accident. The brain
controls the functioning of the entire body, from maintaining balance
while sitting, turning, or walking, to grasping and holding objects, and
tasting and breathing.
A blow or other injury such as anesthesia overdose, or inhalation of a
toxic substance may injure one or many control centers. In some cases,
another area of the brain is able to take over the control from the injured
area. When the damage is too severe, permanent disability and obvious
personality change may result. In such cases, our traumatic brain injury
lawyers at The Dunnion Law Firm will be able to help identify persons
or entities which can be held liable for the injury and the costs of present
and future medical treatment, therapy, life-care, or rehabilitation.
Our lawyers take a very aggressive stance in holding negligent parties
fully responsible. We use experts to evaluate all aspects of a client's
life and the totality of the losses involved, including enjoyment of life.
When possible, we demand the payment of punitive damages also.
