Personal Injury Lawyer Focusing on Brain Injury Claims

The brain injury lawyer at Gresham, P.C. understands how serious injuries can have a lasting effect on your life. Similar to any catastrophic injury, the impact of brain injuries are life-altering. The effects are often debilitating and sometimes permanent.

In addition to pain and suffering, victims are faced with:

  • Medical Bills
  • Loss of Wages
  • Loss of Mobility
  • Future Medical Care Needs and Expenses
  • Often Complete Dependency on Loved Ones for Care

The physical and emotional toll a brain injury can take on a victim is just as prevalent in the victim's family. It can take months or even years for both the victim and their family to adjust to the injury and life changes.

This is why victims and their families should seek the aid of an attorney who specializes in brain injuries. The brain injury attorney at Gresham, P.C. is here to help. Our firm can lessen the additional mental and emotional toll the legal process can take on those affected by catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries.

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. Traumatic brain injury can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object or when an object pierces the skull, and enters brain tissue.

Injuries include the following:

  • Concussions
  • Contusions
  • Diffuse Axonal Brain Injury
  • Coup-Countrecoup Brain Injury
  • Penetration Brain Injury

There are several sub-categories of traumatic brain injury. Sports accidents, car accidents, trucking accidents, and many other sources of impact or penetration of the skull or brain can lead to a traumatic brain injury. We use state of the art technology to include 3-D brain mapping when appropriate and prove the nature, extent, and magnitude of the traumatic brain injury.

Acquired Brain Injury

An acquired brain injury is not hereditary. Rather, an acquired brain injury is caused by an internal condition within the body, such as the loss of adequate oxygen to the brain. An acquired brain injury can result from many factors that may not necessarily be the negligence of another, including certain health and drug-related problems.

Types of acquired brain injuries include:

  • Anoxia - Complete deprivation of oxygen
  • Hypoxia - Regional or partial deprivation of oxygen

Traumatic brain injuries can result in life-changing mental and physical disabilities. A once active person may be subjected to a life of disability and dependency on their loved ones and others. Often the impact of any catastrophic injury on the victim's loved ones is profound.

The victim may emerge with a different personality or require around-the-clock care for the rest of their life. Seeking assistance from an experienced brain injury attorney at Gresham, P.C. can provide a sliver of peace to a family in an inconceivably difficult and grief-stricken situation. We can help your family recover financially in a court of law and help the victim receive government benefits.

For example, in one of our cases, the plaintiff was hospitalized with pneumonia. He developed respiratory distress, which lead to respiratory failure. Unfortunately, he did not receive enough oxygen to his brain, resulting in permanent brain damage. The plaintiff went from an otherwise healthy 42-year-old to living in a nursing home. We assembled a team of experts, including a pulmonologist, neurologists, psychologists, physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors, economists, and life care planners to present this case to a jury.
