Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries are complex injuries that require a high level of medical and legal expertise. Traumatic brain injuries typically happen when the head collides with an object such as a headrest or dashboard, or when the brain undergoes a rapid acceleration/ deceleration movement. Sometimes,
following a whiplash injury, the head will not show external trauma. However, the acceleration/deceleration movement of the head caused injury to the brain. Regardless of the type of trauma, brain injuries can cause bruising, bleeding or sheering of delicate tissues. Evidence of an injury can be apparent at the time of the accident, within several hours of the impact, or can become evident over the following days and weeks.
Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries require experienced legal representation that can address the complexities of a catastrophic injury. Often victims of these injuries require coordinated medical care from the moment of the injury throughout the recovery process, and sometimes over the course of their life. Typically, accident victims will need life care plans to address their long-term medical needs. Mager Law Group has significant experience with these types of complex cases.
