From Less Serious To Extreme Traumatic Brain Injuries
With more than 100 years of combined experience, our Missouri brain injury lawyers know how to handle cases involving traumatic brain injuries (TBI) of all levels of severity. Severe traumatic brain injuries typically leave the victim comatose. Sometimes, the victim may never regain consciousness. These cases often involve intense emotions and complex issues that require the assistance of various experts in order to build a strong case.
The term mild traumatic brain injury is somewhat inappropriate; no brain injury is truly mild. MTBI often results in lifelong changes for the victim, some of which may only reveal themselves after the passage of time. The victim may be left with constant headaches, memory problems, cognitive difficulties and more. These cases are particularly challenging because the injuries are not easily shown via MRI and other tests.
If the case proceeds to a trial, our ability to engage trusted experts who can convey the specifics of the injury to members of the jury will prove critical. We know how to build strong cases, regardless of the severity of the brain injury. Our lawyers have the experience and compassion to prevent you from worrying about the legal issues that can follow a serious personal injury.
