Traumatic brain injuries pose significant challenges for the victim, as well as the victim’s family and his or her lawyers. Personality changes, impairment of the senses, such as sight or smell, and loss of memory are just some of the many consequences of a traumatic brain injury. Sometimes the effects or symptoms of a brain injury are subtle, other times they are obvious and devastating.
The lawyers at The Hamilton Firm have obtained millions of dollars for brain and spinal cord injury victims and their families. And, years of experience working with physicians, rehabilitation facilities, group homes, neuropsychologists, social workers and other service providers enables our lawyers to help bring real quality of life improvements to victims and families.
Spinal cord injuries are also devastating. Motor vehicle wrecks, including rollovers, as well as falls account for many such injuries. Paralysis can range from complete quadriplegia to impairment or dysfunction in an arm or leg. Spinal cord injury victims may require special facilities and services, such as attendant care, an accessible home, a van with a lift, occupational therapy, and so forth. Such services and treatment are expensive and sometimes can be difficult to obtain. But, for a lawyer representing the victim of a spinal cord injury, the most rewarding moments come when the victim’s family can finally afford to buy a van with a lift, to hire attendant care and to equip the home with a proper wheel chair ramp. Spinal cord injury cases also demand the highest level of skill and experience a lawyer can bring to the case.
