Connecticut Brain Injury Lawyer

Call (888) 471-5989 to speak with a personal injury attorney.

The state of Connecticut has multiple resources available for victims of brain injury. Many of theses resources provide advocacy, rehabilitation, and prevention programs for sufferers of brain injuries and their families. While these programs help prevent injury for the general public and provide recovery assistance for those who have already suffered brain injury, they do not provide financial compensation for those who have been affected by brain injury due to another party's negligence. In order to present your case for negligence resulting in brain injury, contacting a qualified Connecticut personal injury attorney specializing in brain injury should be your first step.

A lawyer who focuses on the practice of brain injury law realizes the delicacy of the health issues that can arise with injuries to the brain. If you have suffered a brain injury as a result of an accident, let a qualified Connecticut brain injury attorney's knowledge and past experiences in brain injury cases analyze the complex situation of your specific case and form a plan that best fits your own medical circumstances.

Depending on the accident involved, an injury to the brain can be as simple as a headache that requires only some over-the-counter pain relievers, or as complicated and devastating as complete paralysis or loss of mental function. The severity of the impact to the brain and the area of the brain that is affected will determine the nature and extent of the brain injury. If you have suffered any kind of trauma to the head during an accident, you need to be evaluated by a qualified health care practitioner immediately.

You should also consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Although there is nothing that can be done to reverse your brain injury or its devastating effects on your well-being the culpable parties involved in your accident can be held accountable. If your brain injury can be determined to have been caused by the negligence of another individual or party, you have a right to know. You also have a right to seek financial compensation for that injury not only for your medical costs and lost wages, but also for any pain or potential long-term effects that stemmed from the brain injury.

Since the brain is such an extremely complex organ, and since injuries to it can affect many different aspects of bodily function, from motor skills and coordination to cognitive processes, it may be hard to determine whether an accident has caused a brain injury or not. This is one of the many reasons why brain injuries are so devastating to both the victim and their families.

There are many different causes for traumatic brain injuries, with motor vehicle accidents causing around 28 percent of them, though it is considered they are the reason for 49 percent of brain injuries; sports and physical activity for 20 percent; assaults for 9 percent; 43 percent for other reasons.

Representing a brain injury case may be vastly different and more complex than representing other types of legal cases, even medical cases. After all, a brain injury directly impacts a person's life, is extremely traumatic for the suffering individual and his or her family, and may have serious long-term consequences. That's why you need an attorney who is not only knowledgeable about personal injury law, but who also has specific experience in litigating cases involving brain injury.

Finding a lawyer you trust and are comfortable with is important, because they can help in more than one way. Not only can they get you the monetary damages that are owed to you, but they can help to take some of the stress related to brain injury and legal proceedings off of you. They have also dealt with many brain injury victims, and they may be able to give some good advice when it comes to the recovery process.
