Traumatic Brain Injury, Closed Head Injury & Spinal Cord Injuries
The sudden, jarring motion of a car accident can lead to serious head injuries. These brain injuries can be complex to diagnose and even harder to treat. Individuals with brain injuries can suffer serious conditions, including:
- Blurred vision
- Personality changes
- Behavioral changes
- Cognitive deficiencies
- Reading problems
Most often, it is a loved one who notices these changes and contacts our attorneys. If you need a brain injury lawyer in St. Louis, do not hesitate to contact one of our experienced attorneys. A brain injury can lead to personality changes, cognitive deficits (memory loss), blurred vision, nausea, dizziness or problems with balance, inability to focus and symptoms of attention deficit disorder (ADD)/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. These problems in turn can lead to job loss and drug use. A skilled and experienced lawyer will fight aggressively to ensure that you recover the maximum compensation possible to protect your ongoing medical treatment and financial security.
Spinal Cord Damage: Paraplegia/Quadriplegia
The spinal cord is protected by segments of bone called vertebrae. When the vertebrae are fractured or pushed to the point of damaging or severing the spinal cord, individuals can suffer catastrophic and lifelong conditions.
The most serious result from a spinal cord injury is paralysis. Based on the location of the injury, individuals can suffer paraplegia (paralysis to the arms) or quadriplegia (paralysis to the arms and legs). Victims of this type of injury will likely lose some level of sensation or control over their limbs, potentially limiting an individual’s ability to earn a living. These injuries also have profound effects on the victim’s family members.
