Brain Injury

DC, Maryland, & Virginia Brain Injury Attorneys

It can be frightening to face the reality that you may need a team of good brain injury attorneys to help you and your loved ones through a very difficult period of time.

Albeit all brain injuries are always serious, a brain injury can be present with many different kinds of symptoms or lack of symptoms, depending on the injury itself and the area of the brain it affected

According to the Centers for Disease Control State Injury Indicator Report, at least 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur every year. Thousands of these injuries happen in the Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia area.

If you think or know that you or someone you love may be suffering from a brain injury, having the brain injury law firm Washington DC relies on may help you to understand what your rights are.

Brain trauma is considered to be one of the most serious types of injuries a person can sustain. Since the brain is unique from person to person, brain injuries are wide-ranging and unique to each person who suffers brain trauma.

The effects of suffering a brain injury are also varied and can include memory loss, inability to concentrate, paralysis, and death. There are many different symptoms and outcomes of brain injuries not mentioned here. A team of licensed brain injury attorneys may help you to understand more about the fiscal impact you or your loved one’s brain injury may have on you and your family, along with being able to explain what your and your family’s rights are, and how to protect them.

Brain injuries are commonly the result of negligence on the behalf of another person and can lead to a personal injury case. Common personal injury situations that cause traumatic brain injuries are slip and falls, motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, and assault.

Motor vehicle accidents result in the largest percentage of death caused by a brain injury. If someone close to you has died as the result of a traumatic brain injury, your grief and frustration may be overwhelming. While talking to understanding brain injury attorneys will not likely take away your grief, it may give you the space and time you need to heal. Having a compassionate yet fierce team of personal injury lawyers Washington DC trusts on your side may help to protect your and your family’s rights.

Signs that you have experienced a serious injury to the brain may include but are not limited to:

  • Dilated pupils
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Partial or complete paralysis
  • Memory loss
  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Slurred speech
  • Body numbness or tingling

If you were involved in an accident and are experiencing any of these symptoms, or many not mentioned here, contact a medical expert immediately. If a physician establishes that you have a brain injury, you might be able to establish a claim for personal injury. An experienced team of brain injury attorneys are people who understand the law and what a victim’s rights are.

Lawyers Can Help With Brain Injuries from a Bicycle Accident in Greenbelt, MD

When you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury from a bicycle or other accident in Maryland, bicycle accident lawyers Greenbelt, MD residents can rely on may be able to help.

One of the most dangerous injuries an accident victim can sustain is a head injury. This is because the brain is extremely vulnerable whenever there is any kind of trauma to the head.

Diagnosing and treating a head or brain injury can also be difficult. In many cases, when there are no obvious signs of outside injuries such as cuts or bruising, the symptoms of a brain injury can be silent and problems do not begin to present until the situation becomes dire.

The long-term or permanent effects of a brain injury can also take some time to determine. This is why it is important that victims do not settle quickly with an insurance company until the full extent of the injury is known.

At Cohen & Cohen, our bicycle accident lawyers who are licensed to practice in Greenbelt and throughout MD have been advocating for victims for more than 35 years, and understand just how complex these cases can become. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, contact our firm to discuss how we may be able to help get you the compensation you deserve.

Head Injury Treatments

One of the most common types of brain injuries that warrant the need for bicycle accident lawyers from Greenbelt and MD at large, is a concussion. Usually, there are no advanced medical treatments required other than the victim resting and watching to make sure their symptoms do not get worse. Other types of head injuries can be more serious and require surgery to alleviate and repair the damage. Victims who have suffered a severe brain injury are often put into a coma in order to allow the brain to heal without having to “work” as it would be required to if the victim were awake and alert.

If any of the above have happened to you or a loved one, it may be beneficial to discuss what your rights are with reputable bicycle accident lawyers in Greenbelt and other cities in MD.

Recovery and rehabilitation for brain injuries can present numerous complications and require multiple types of treatment. There are several different types of medical professionals a brain injury victim may require during this process:

  • Neuropsychologist: Focuses and follows cognitive impairment and performance
  • Occupational therapist: Work on skills needed to perform everyday tasks and activities
  • Physiatrist: Oversees all care during the entire rehabilitation process
  • Physical therapist: Helps the victim regain mobility and relearn movements
  • Speech and language pathologist: Focuses on communication skills

Treatments for brain injuries from bicycle accidents in Greenbelt, MD are often costly, which it is why it is often a good idea to enlist the help of lawyers who may be able to help you get compensation for these costs.

Let a Brain Injury Attorney Help

Brain and head injury claims can be complex. If the injuries are severe and require long-term care, the amount of damages the victim is entitled to can be high, running into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions. This could cause the insurance company to fight back hard on settling the case. Often in these cases, it is necessary to obtain the testimony of outside experts who will calculate what the long-term costs of medical and daily care will be for a brain injured victim.

These are some of the reasons why brain injury victims and their families should retain the services of a skilled and compassionate brain injury attorney that has a long track record of successfully defending the rights of injured people. For bicycle accident lawyers Greenbelt, MD accident victims and families recommend who will aggressively fight to get you and your family the best possible outcome for the circumstances of your case, contact Cohen & Cohen, today.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
