Seek Maximum Compensation For A Traumatic Brain Injury
A head injury is nothing to take lightly, even when it is invisible to observers. People who have sustained brain injuries typically face long roads to recovery, whether the injuries are mild or severe. You may have suffered a mild concussion or a traumatic injury resulting in a coma. You may have even needed surgery to relieve swelling inside your skull. No matter how mild or severe your brain injury was, you likely need compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Another driver, a trucking company or a property owner whose negligence caused your injury may already be consulting with defense attorneys. To level the playing field, you need personalized legal counsel on your side. Smalline and Harri, established in 1994, is here for you in Albany.
About Your Accident And Injuries
You or your close family member may have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) through one of these scenarios:
- A car, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian or bicycle accident
- An accident on or in connection with a bus or train
- A slip-and-fall accident on ice or a hazardous indoor feature such as stairs with code violations
- A blow on the head due to falling merchandise in a big box store
- One-time or cumulative, repetitive sports injuries
No matter how you were injured, your brain may have suffered damage described in one of these ways:
- A concussion
- A contusion
- A closed-head injury
- An open-head injury
- A cerebral hematoma
- Cerebral hypoxia due to an anesthesia error
- A short-term or long-term blackout
Or, you may be seeking legal advice when a close family member is in a vegetative state after a serious accident. Whether minor or severe, your TBI or that of your loved one deserves full legal recognition if someone else’s negligence caused or contributed to the accident.
