Boston Brain Injury Lawyers

Compassionate Legal Counsel Fighting For What Your Family Needs

Every year, approximately 1.5 million traumatic brain injuries occur in the U.S. An injury to the head and brain could occur at any given place and any given time. Injuries to the brain are serious medical issues. An injury to your brain could result in life-long medical side effects or even death. Side effects of brain injuries vary and could include an abnormal increase in appetite and weight, severe anxiety, and behavioral disorders, among other things.

Brain injuries are very common and can happen to anyone. According to the Mayo Clinic, traumatic brain injury can vary in degree and may include:

  • Damage to brain cells in a limited area
  • Multiple points of damage to the brain
  • Tearing of cellular structures
  • Widespread damage that may have resulted from a blast
  • Damage to brain cells, blood vessels, and protective tissues from penetration of the skull
  • Bleeding around the brain, swelling, and blood clots

These cases could involve different issues depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury, sorting through liable parties, and insurance disputes. Our experienced Boston brain injury attorneys know where to look for evidence to support your claim, and aim to get you the maximum amount of recovery.

Brain Injury Facts

Some common risk areas for brain injuries include the operation of a motorcycle without a helmet, aggressive sports, construction sites, and being in places where one is prone to falling. According to a study featured by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of death for people below the age of 45. Every year, these injuries result in about 50,000 deaths and 80,000-90,000 of debilitating head injuries. Medical expenses for treatment of traumatic brain injuries can be extremely expensive, with the estimated annual economic cost being $76.5 billion in the U.S. According to the Mayo Clinic, common events resulting in brain injury may include:

  • Falls. (Particularly common for children and the elderly)
  • Collisions involving motor vehicles.
  • Violence. (Such as wounds from gunfire, domestic abuse, and shaken baby syndrome)
  • High impact sport. (Such as boxing, soccer, football, hockey, baseball, and skateboarding)
  • Combat. (Such as exposure to explosions and blasts while on active military duty)

The aftermath of a brain injury is stressful, but legal action can help you obtain the resources you need for recovery. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses. Compensation for incidents involving brain injuries may include but are not limited to:

  • Medical bills (including current and future medical expenses)
  • Loss wages from the incapacity to work
