Most people have little cause to be familiar with brain anatomy. When individuals or families learn of an injury to a specific part of the brain like the brain stem, information is therefore usually needed.

The brain stem is a small but essential part of the brain. Its crucial functions include:

  • It connects the brain to the spinal cord. Thus it is needed in order to perform bodily motor skills like the moving of legs and arms.
  • The brain stem supplies the face with nerves and muscular ability.
  • All nerves between the brain and the rest of the body pass through the brain stem. Therefore, it is needed by the body for sensory perception.
  • The brain stem regulates the cardio, respiratory central nervous systems, and is pivotal in moving the body from consciousness to sleep.

Clearly, the brain stem is one of the most essential parts of the body. If you or a loved one has experienced in a brain stem injury in an auto accident or other accident, contact the law firm of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP. We have handled approximately 100 brain, spine and neck injury cases since the founding of our firm over 60 years ago.

Our extensive experience means we have the medical knowledge and relationships with experts needed to fully document the full extent of injuries, including hard-to-detect injuries and future medical costs. While a large settlement offer may be tempting, an investigation of future medical expenses usually reveals that future medical treatment, therapy and home health care costs will far exceed expectations.

We have handled brain stem cases ranging from minor motor skill and memory problems to vegetative-state cases. For more information and to schedule a no-charge consultation, please contact our firm.
