Traumatic brain injuries can be a result of a slip and fall, medical negligence, or a motor vehicle accident. The attorney/client relationship is vital in these types of cases due to the delicate nature of the injury and the client’s ongoing and ever-changing needs.
Fortunately, the legal advice from the law offices of Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., offers a unique experience. Senior partner, Eileen Kroll is a registered nurse in addition to being an established attorney.
It’s possible to miss the symptoms of suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) because of the high emotions and confusion that are common in the aftermath of a car accident. Unfortunately, due to the nature of concussion and other brain injuries, drivers or passengers who suffer TBIs may forget to cite the injury on a claim immediately following the accident, leaving no evidence of the injury.
Aside from overlooked TBIs having a number of medical complications, insurance companies are known for denying payouts when the injury was not disclosed immediately.
If that is the experience you’re having, you can sue for lost wages, medical expenses, and other benefits that you may be entitled to under the Michigan No-Fault Act. The compassionate lawyers at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., work with your doctors to help you get the compensation you deserve.
While many patients who suffer from brain injuries can recover quickly, it’s possible that other patients may experience the traumatic symptoms over months or years. Patients such as these often require occupational therapy and other rehabilitative services in order to completely recover from the injury. It’s also possible that an individual may never regain full dexterity, use of their limbs, or regular memory functions.
If a TBI requires the ongoing support and care of medical staff, including expensive doctors and physical therapists, the lawyers at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., can factor that into your personal injury lawsuit to ensure you get the support you need for your recovery.
