The human brain is one of the most powerful (perhaps the most powerful) and complex structures in the history of creation on this planet, an electrochemical dynamo that still makes even the most modern supercomputers look simple. Yet for all its sophistication and problem-solving ability, the brain is also one of the most fragile parts of the human body. It can be easily damaged in a variety of ways, such as bruising or concussion from a traumatic source, or oxygen deprivation, or even by direct contact with foreign objects from penetration of the skull.
Once the brain is injured, recovery can be a prolonged and uncertain process. Despite advances in modern medical technology, rehabilitation is still almost as much art as science, involving multiple medical and non-medical fields and specialists to assist in recovering functions like balance, speech, spatial perception, concentration and even memory. Sometimes, if the injury is too serious, a full recovery may not be possible.
Coming back from a brain injury that results from an accident or other act by another person can be difficult enough without having to deal with an insurance company that is mainly interested in maximizing its bottom line. At Ted B. Lyon & Associates, we know how stressful it can be for the loved ones of a person who has suffered a brain injury to determine on their own whether a settlement offer is really sufficient to address the long-term or permanent consequences, including not only loss of income potential but also the damage to family relationships.
You have enough to worry about without having to become an insurance expert or a professional negotiator. That is something that as trial lawyers we handle for our clients, so they can concentrate on what is more important. Also, if a settlement offer is insufficient, we can advise you on what steps to take next, including taking the other party to trial if necessary to receive the full measure of compensation to which you are entitled.
Something that can be almost as complex as the brain itself is the settlement and litigation process that follows a brain injury. We make sure that you have the professional, diligent, thorough, and empathetic legal representation that you will need to assist in securing the financial recovery to make the physical recovery as complete as possible.
