Representing Victims Of Closed Head Injuries

Serious closed head injuries, including brain bleeds, can occur even without a blow to the head. On some occasions, people who have suffered such an injury show few symptoms. Victims may remain conscious and simply complain of a headache. Eventually, they may experience confusion, disorientation, severe headache and even coma. If left untreated, some brain bleeds can prove fatal.

Head Injuries Occur In Several Ways

  • Motor vehicle accidents: This injury can occur from whiplash or striking your head on the ground after an accident. Pedestrians are especially vulnerable.
  • Falls from heights: Construction workers face such dangers, as do do-it-yourself home renovators while on ladders or scaffolding.
  • Recreational accidents: A bicyclist with or without a helmet is prone to such an injury; so are people involved in diving accidents.
  • Violent situations: Blunt force to the head can lead to a person falling and striking his or her head on a street or sidewalk.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


Abuse & Molestation

 Priests, ministers, church officials and workers, coaches, teachers, day care workers, park rangers, and other trusted adults who sexually molest children, ruin lives and cause irreparable psychological damage.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.



Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
