Lifelong Compensation For Traumatic Brain Injuries
After a serious accident, emergency personnel and medical staff often fail to ask if the injured person lost consciousness. Closed head injuries may be missed or misdiagnosed. Even when the patient has been comatose, we rarely see doctors order an aggressive evaluation of a traumatic brain injury (TBI), even though a neuropsychological evaluation is the only way to truly evaluate if a patient has sustained brain damage.
Serious Head Injury And Brain Damage
Traumatic brain injuries are among the most serious of personal injury cases. Because of our experience working with clients who have brain injuries and our experience working with traumatic brain injury experts, we are often able to identify clients who have suffered brain damage even if they have not yet received a proper medical assessment. We often work with board-certified neuropsychologists to ensure our clients get a thorough exam and correct diagnosis.
At the Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider, you will find an attorney with more than 45 years of legal experience, and a team dedicated to helping you obtain the maximum compensation available for your case. We serve clients in Anchorage and throughout the state of Alaska.
Brain Injuries Most Often Caused By Accidents
We represent clients in cases involving:
- Concussions – Caused by sudden trauma to the brain
- Contusions – A bruise (bleeding) on the brain
- Coup-contrecoup injuries – Contusions arising at the impact site as well as on the opposite side of the brain
- Diffuse axonal injuries – Caused by shaking or strong rotation of the head, as with shaken baby syndrome, or by rotational forces, as can happen in a car accident
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) – Closed or penetrating damage to brain tissue by an external mechanical force or motion
- Second impact syndrome – Also called recurrent traumatic brain injury, when a person sustains a second traumatic brain injury before the symptoms of the first traumatic brain injury have healed
In all of these cases, our head lawyer Michael Schneider knows how to find the cause of the injuries, the long-term costs and damages involved, and the path to successful litigation. We will do whatever it takes to get you the compensation you need.
