These injuries, ranging from mild to severe, have profound impacts on our clients’ lives, requiring expert legal and medical intervention. Our experience in this specialized field underscores the importance of professional legal guidance to navigate the complexities of head injury claims.

Understanding Head Injuries

Head injuries are traumatic and can significantly alter a person’s life. They are generally categorized into two types: severe head injuries, which might involve extended hospital stays, comas, or bleeding in the brain, and mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBI), which can be just as debilitating in the long term. The primary causes of these injuries in the personal injury realm are vehicle accidents, although these types of injuries can be caused in many ways. From slip and fall accidents, to workplace accidents and more.

Diagnosing Head Injuries

For severe head injuries, CT SCAN testing is indispensable. It can reveal bleeding in the brain that, if not promptly addressed, may lead to death or serious brain damage. On the other hand, diagnosing MTBI is fraught with challenges. These injuries can elude detection by MRI or CT SCAN due to the tests’ lack of sensitivity.

The Role of Evidence in Head Injury Cases

At DeSimone Law Office, we understand the paramount importance of concrete evidence in substantiating head injury claims. For severe injuries, we ensure that the injury is meticulously documented, sometimes including hospital videotaping of the client. This evidence, coupled with the undeniable results of tests, leaves insurance companies with no room to dispute the occurrence of a head injury.

Proving up MTBI requires a different approach. The injured client may not recognize the permanence of their injury, given the subtlety of symptoms and their pre-accident existence. Here, the expertise of a neuropsychologist becomes invaluable, conducting extensive testing to uncover the injury’s impacts.

Symptoms and Effects of Head Injuries

MTBI symptoms include memory loss, increased stress, disorientation, and an inability to perform daily functions as before. These symptoms might not be new to the client but are exacerbated by the head injury, making diagnosis and proof of injury more complex.

Legal Representation for Head Injury Victims

The legal landscape for head injury victims is fraught with complexities. DeSimone Law Office is adept at navigating these challenges, ensuring clients receive the medical treatment they need and the financial compensation they deserve. Our experience in handling these cases is extensive, equipping us with the knowledge and strategies necessary to combat insurance company tactics effectively.

Insurance Company Tactics

Insurance companies often employ strategies to minimize their payouts, especially in cases involving significant deductibles. This can severely impact the injured party, delaying or diminishing the compensation they are entitled to. Our firm is familiar with these tactics and has successfully countered them on behalf of our clients for years.
