Suffering a traumatic brain injury is a life-changing event with many long-term issues that must be resolved. Getting an attorney in your corner early on in your case allows you to plan for the future, predict future roadblocks and obtain compensation for the medical care you need now. At The Law Offices of John V. O’Connor, we have more than 35 years of experience assisting individuals through their head injury claims. We will use this knowledge to help you as well.
Serious brain injuries can occur in all types of accidents. When the brain collides with the inside of the skull, bruising and tearing can result, causing significant short and long-term damage. Issues with brain injuries usually arise from accidents where an individual’s head comes in contact with another object such as a windshield, dashboard or car seat.
Brain injuries can also occur without your head contacting another object. Sometimes, simply stopping suddenly can cause life-threatening damage to the sensitive brain tissue that impacts your skull. If you have recently been in an accident of any type, it is imperative to get checked out for brain injuries and consult with an experienced Wisconsin traumatic brain injury lawyer to ensure your rights are protected.
Speaking with a skilled TBI lawyer is important in order to ensure you receive the maximum compensation from insurance companies and all other parties involved. Insurance providers are out to protect their bottom line, not your long-term goals. With brain injuries, your long-term interests are very important because many symptoms will not show up until much later down the line. This means you could have very large medical bills to cover much later on that would not be covered by simply accepting an insurance company’s initial offer.
