The brain is probably the single most important organ in the human body. It is the seat of our emotions, our memories and our intellect. It processes the information we receive through our senses. And through the nervous system, it controls every movement in our bodies.
Yet the brain is also surprisingly fragile. When the brain is injured, almost any function of the body can be affected. A mild head injury can lead to memory loss, cognitive problems, personality changes and constant headaches. A severe traumatic brain injury can result in permanent disability and even put the victim in a coma. Victims of severe brain injury can require lifelong, round-the-clock care. The medical expenses associated with such an injury can be devastating for a family. Our Montana brain injury law practice is dedicated to obtaining fair and just compensation for brain injury victims and their families.
In recent years, our society has become more aware of the long-term consequences of brain injuries, particularly concussions in sports. Many brain injuries are also caused by automobile, truck and motorcycle accidents. Others are caused by nursing home neglect, medical malpractice, or workplace accidents.
Tragically, many cases of brain trauma are preventable. When a brain injury is the result of another person’s negligence, the victim has the right to bring a personal injury lawsuit and recover compensation. Victims can recover medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses and compensation for pain and suffering. If the injury took place at work, the victim can recover workers’ compensation benefits, including disability benefits.
