Talk to an Attorney experienced in Brain Injury Cases


We have represented hundreds of victims of catastrophic accidents stemming from trucking accidents, airline or small aircraft accidents, bus and train accidents, as well as structural collapses across the nation. We are very familiar with handling complex accident cases in which our clients have suffered catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, head trauma, and even death.

We consider prompt response to client communications one of our highest priorities.

We pride ourselves in making communication with our clients the cornerstone of our practice. In fact, many of our clients remain in touch with us long after their cases have resolved.

This brain injury animation shows the brain injury suffered by our client, a classic "coup-contra-coup" injury. In other words, it shows the sharp acceleration and deceleration forces exerted on his head that caused his brain to bounce backwards and forwards in his skull, which resulted in the stretching, tearing and rupturing of axons (brain and nerve cells).
