Even a minor accident that does not result in any immediately visible injuries can still leave victims with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). These types of injuries can be particularly insidious as they are often difficult to diagnose and symptoms may not show themselves until weeks after the accident. Traumatic brain injuries are serious, and it may take months, if not years, to recover. Even then, a person may not return to the state he or she was in prior to the accident.
At the Law Office of Richard Gallone, P.C., our Warwick lawyer represents accident victims exclusively. We understand the impact that a TBI can have on its victims. That is why we work hard to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions while we pursue full and fair compensation for your injuries.
Unlike most injuries, the effects of a head injury are often not readily visible. A person may not lose consciousness and everything may appear to be fine. However, a slow brain bleed may result and when a diagnosis is made, an accident victim may have already suffered irreparable brain damage. Because these types of injuries affect people differently and because they are difficult to diagnose, it is important to take into account any challenges that a victim may face when seeking compensation.
We work closely with victims and their family members to ensure that a diagnosis has been properly made and that the accident victim is receiving appropriate medical care. Once we have this foundation, we can work with life planning and other experts to help get a picture of the full costs of treatment, physical therapy, long-term care and other expenses. We are committed to helping victims recover the maximum compensation to which they are entitled.
