Brain Injury Claims | Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia

Millions of people suffer from some form of brain injury in the United States every year. For some people, a mild concussion will be the extent of damages. For too many others, the results will be catastrophic personal injury with a lifetime of consequences.

When your brain injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to seek full compensation for your damages. Full compensation should include all related medical expenses, current and future lost wages, physical suffering, and emotional stress. The injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC are prepared to take your case, and help you receive the maximum compensation you are due for your brain injury in Washington, D.C., Maryland or Virginia.

Living with the Effects of a Brain Injury

Problems stemming from a brain injury may be immediate such as infection, seizures, and comas. Common disabilities resulting from brain injuries can be even more severe and include things such as:

  • Cognitive disruptions
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of speaking and communication abilities
  • Loss of executive functioning
  • Impaired hand-eye coordination
  • Emotional and behavioral problems

Most brain injuries require the assistance of several medical professionals including neuropsychologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons. The expenses related to the necessary treatments, in addition to the drastic impact to your quality of life can be absolutely devastating.

Determining if You Have a Case

Some brain injuries may be a result of your own behavior. More often, brain injuries are the result of the careless or negligent behavior of others. This can include things such as:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Defective products
  • Diffuse axonal injury
  • Slip and fall accidents

During the winter especially, brain injury can be caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. For example, defective flues in water heaters or gas furnaces can leak carbon monoxide. These particular appliances, when defective or improperly installed, are responsible for many poisonings every year. Many patients are released from the hospital only to find that they have serious neurological damage and will require advanced medical intervention to ever regain full function.

Despite treatment, many people will never regain full function after a brain injury. Even with medical and psychological treatment, you may be faced with a life-long struggle, inability to work, and severe decline in your quality of life. We believe this is unacceptable. As your attorneys, we cannot undo the damages done, but we can seek to provide you with the compensation needed to recover as best you can and to lead the highest quality life possible following your injury.

You may be able to seek compensation from the party responsible for your injuries. We have the resources and experience to see that negligent parties are held responsible. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that resulted in a brain injury, please contact the personal injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC to schedule a free consultation. We are proud to represent personal injury sufferers in and around Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia.
