The Importance Of A Comprehensive Assessment Of Brain Injuries

Seeking Recovery for Life

When people suffer a brain injury, it affects their entire life as well as their emotional, financial, physical and psychological future. The changes are complex because the brain is responsible for so much of our physical, emotional and psychological behavior and abilities.

The brain injury attorneys of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, have significant experience representing victims of brain injuries. In our experience, the difference between a skilled and successful lawsuit, and one that falls short, begins with the comprehensive assessment and ends with the skill and experience of the lawyer.

We help those who are seeking recovery for the life that is lost, and also for the life they will live going forward. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a car accident, construction or workplace accident, an injury during childbirth or as a result of someone's negligence, we would like to hear from you.

Contact our law firm to begin a complete and comprehensive assessment of any brain injury.

Imaging Does Not Tell the Entire Story

Brain trauma and a serious brain injury cannot always be seen in an MRI or other imaging test. A brain injury isn't like a shattered leg or other serious injury. It may not leave a physical scar, but can leave an emotional or cognitive one. A brain injury lawsuit will often pit one set of experts against another. The experts we use, and the comprehensive assessment that we will conduct, can demonstrate the damage that has been done.

We work with the following types of experts:

  • Psychologists and psychiatrists
  • Educational psychologists
  • Neurologists
  • Economists
  • Life care planning experts

These are the types of people who help us prove the damage done by the brain injury. They help us demonstrate the type of care, training and assistance that is needed over the lifetime of you or your loved one. We seek to recover not only any medical costs, but also the cost of retraining, therapy, special accommodations and damages for such things as diminished earning power and loss of companionship.
