Brain injuries are a common outcome of car accidents, slip & falls, sports injuries, birth injuries, and medical malpractice. Even a relatively minor blow to the head can result in a brain injury. They can take a number of forms and don’t often appear until months after an accident. If you or a loved one have experienced any kind of head trauma as a result of someone else’s negligent actions you may be entitled to compensation from the defendant’s insurance companies.
Filing a personal injury claim is the best way to pursue the compensation you need to cover past, current, and future medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering damages. The statute of limitations for a personal injury claim in civil court in Michigan is three years.
Compiling evidence and making a case can be complicated. At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. we know the law and we’ll fight aggressively to get you the justice and the award you deserve.
Our senior partner, Eileen Kroll is also a registered nurse and her medical background gives her a unique insight into brain injury cases and the warning signs of a brain injury. These include confusion, disorientation, trouble concentrating, difficulty sleeping, headaches, sensitivity to lights and sounds, and vertigo. Even minor accidents can cause personality changes and alter your relationships. Catastrophic accidents can leave you with a long-term disability.
Eileen and her team will fight to recover economic and non-economic damages so you can live as comfortably as possible as you recover and find a new normal after your traumatic brain injury.
After consulting with your doctor, you and your lawyer can determine the long-term effects of your brain injury on your quality of life, such as the inability to work or drive a car.
If your head injury was caused by the negligence of a third party then you deserve compensation for your financial losses and pain and suffering. To find out if you are eligible contact a personal injury lawyer at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. at 866-MICH-LAW or contact us online. Your initial consultation is free, and we never charge a legal fee unless we make a recovery for your accident or injury.
