Unfortunately, brain injuries are more common than most people realize. Annually, more than 1.5 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. When a victim endures this type of harm because of someone else’s negligence or willful misconduct, assessing the damage can be complicated. Serving clients in North and South Carolina, Levine Law Group in Mooresville works diligently on behalf of TBI victims to achieve a result that fairly compensates plaintiffs for the short and long-term effects associated with a blow to the head. Our knowledgeable advocates strive to put clients in the best position to recover payment that accounts for their physical, cognitive, emotional and psychological needs.
Once you take the first step, we’ll evaluate how a potential lawsuit might proceed and provide the information and advice you need to make wise decisions.
Though traumatic brain injuries should never be ignored, they can range widely in their severity and effects. Any damage to the head that disrupts normal function to the brain is considered a TBI. Mild concussions can lead to a temporary change in mental status or consciousness. More severe TBIs are characterized by extended periods of unconsciousness, memory loss, disorientation or dizziness after the injury. The most severe TBIs can lead to permanent brain damage or death. Dealing effectively with the legal ramifications of these complicated medical conditions requires an attorney with a background in these claims and access to experts in neurological injury.
In both North and South Carolina, an injury victim has three years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. Unfortunately, some victims don’t experience the true effects of a brain injury immediately. Should sufficient grounds for a claim exist, we will help you help pursue compensation for your present condition as well as any long-term care and rehabilitation that might be required. If the person who was hurt lacks the capacity to assert their legal rights, we assist legal guardians in TBI cases.
