Helping Kansas and Missouri TBI Victims
Suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) usually has a serious effect on a person's life, even if the injury is relatively mild. For example, a person with a mild TBI may appear to have retained all physical and cognitive abilities, but is experiencing depression and personality changes.
Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., represents TBI victims and their families in personal injury claims. We understand the difficulties these injuries can cause for the entire family. Brain damage is often irreversible and results in a permanent change to a person's lifestyle, relationships and ability to accomplish daily tasks. Consequently, you may need compensation to move forward. For a free consultation with our Kansas City brain injuries lawyers, please call 816-892-4675 or contact us online.
Brain Injury, Disability and Long-term Consequences
A TBI is often difficult to diagnose because the effects are not always immediately apparent. They may not present until weeks or months after the accident that caused the injury. Some common causes of TBI include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle and ATV accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
The effects of a TBI may include: dizziness, headaches, personality changes, depression, post-concussion syndrome, amnesia or loss of consciousness. Motor skill function and speech may also be impaired. In the most severe cases, the results may be comas or wrongful death.
People who suffer a TBI often need long-term medical treatment. Depending on the severity of the injury, they may need rehabilitation and require care from specialists such as speech pathologists, therapists, neurologists and others.
You will need compensation to cover long-term care as well as lost income and monthly expenses. Our attorneys will fight hard to recover the damages your family needs. Please call our office at 816-892-4675 to schedule an appointment with an Overland Park traumatic brain injury attorney today.
