Making Certain You Get the Compensation You Deserve

Some spinal cord injuries cause only limited or temporary damage. Others result in permanent paralysis from the injury site down. Brain injuries are often permanent and can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Subtle changes in mood and behavior are common in people with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Head injury victims may also experience both short-term and long-term memory loss. Either type of injury may require specialized testing and treatment from neurologists, psychologists, physical and speech therapists, and others.
