BRAIN INJURY ATTORNEY

Certain injuries are so severe that they require enormous expenditures for medical treatment and life care services and have life-long consequences for those who sustain them. In this regard, brain injuries are in a separate class entirely from other types of injuries. From a legal point of view, these cases are unique too. Obtaining a successful result in these cases requires a special skill set that few attorneys possess.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Diagnosing a traumatic brain injury is a multi-step process. It starts with the patient’s condition at the scene. Looking at factors such as if there was a lack of consciousness, and if so, for how long? Does the person have a memory of the incident, or are they amnesiac? Most importantly, imaging studies. In this age, we have very good imaging techniques to detect even the smallest bleeds in the brain and the smallest evidence of traumatic brain injury, even years after the fact.

Also, the testimony of what we call before and after witnesses. Brain injuries affect people in their day to day function. The best evidence of that is finding the before and after witnesses. The person who knew them before they were injured and after they were injured, about all of the little and big ways that the brain injury has changed that person’s life, as well as the things they are able or not able to do compared to before they had a brain injury.

If someone in your family has been injured and has what you think could be a traumatic brain injury, the most important thing to do first is to be a careful monitor. Watch for lingering and ongoing signs of injury. This includes emotional interactions, cognitive thinking skills, and even physical abnormalities. Get yourself or your family member back into medical care, if it is now two, three, four or five days and there are still symptoms. In more severe cases, some people are still in the hospital.

In that case, getting a very good medical treatment team as well as a good legal team is critical. These are complicated, difficult cases. There are many steps that need to be taken early. Lawyers and therapists that specialize in working with traumatic brain injury cases are really important in getting the right outcome.

A lot of people ask me “how do I get help after I or someone in my family has had a traumatic brain injury?” — the first thing I’m going to say to them is: start with your local or the National Brain Injury Association. On the national level, there is the BIA USA (Brain Injury Association USA), and in Utah, we have the Brain Injury Alliance. Those are both very good resources to start at, because they can connect you to both treatment options, family advocacy options, support groups, and other sorts of help.

And the second thing is: do your careful research. Find the lawyer who has really dedicated time to training and experience to handle the traumatic brain injury case. They are different from the typical personal injury case. You need someone who is a specialist in that area who has really taken the extra time to the verdict.

FROM THE MOUTHS
OF OUR CLIENTS

Eisenberg, Gilchrist and Cutt was invaluable in helping us through a difficult time. Our son was involved in a horrible accident and we weren't sure if he would survive. We were dealing with doctors, medical bills, and overwhelming emotions on how we would help our son recover. They answered every question we had and explained the entire process. They went above and beyond for our son and truly cared about him. I never thought I would be in a situation where I needed a lawyer, but I was so grateful we had them representing our son. We now don't have to worry or stress about his future medical bills and surgeries. We can focus on spending time together and giving our son the best life he can have.
