Seizures & Head Injuries

Our Salt Lake City Brain Injury Lawyers Can Assist You

Epilepsy is the most widely known cause of seizures, but many people who suffer from seizures and seizure disorders are not epileptic. Other causes include traumatic brain injury and toxic chemical exposure, sometimes due to someone’s negligence. Seizures indicate an electrical malfunction within the brain.

The most important thing to do when you, your child or another loved one you know suffers a first seizure is to seek immediate medical attention. This alarming event can indicate an undiagnosed injury or disease, and effective anti-seizure medications are available. In addition, you may suspect a cause that calls for legal action directed at recovering financial compensation that will pay for treatment and help you address other damages and costs.

At Eisenberg, Gilchrist & Cutt in Salt Lake City, we have taken successful action for many brain injury victims and proved liability on the part of negligent drivers, manufacturers and other companies, landlords, and other defendants. If you suspect that someone else is responsible for the accident or condition that now causes seizures for you or a family member, our Salt Lake City brain injury attorneys are ready to help you explore your legal options.

Understanding Seizures

Seizures may be mild—characterized by symptoms such as a twitching finger or brief loss of focus — or severe and life-threatening. Those in the second category are often called grand mal seizures.

Seizures can accompany brain injuries caused by:

  • Car wrecks and trucking accidents, as well as motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Substantial exposure to lead poisoning, carbon monoxide gas or another toxic chemical
  • Falls and impact injuries occurring on construction sites or poorly maintained, dangerous property

For anyone experiencing seizures in the Utah region, causes must be identified and properly diagnosed in order to allow for effective treatment and control. Moreover, in a significant percentage of cases, a skilled attorney can interpret medical information and knowledge of circumstances to determine if a negligence claim or lawsuit is likely to be successful.

We're ready to help you seek the relief and recognition you deserve in the wake of your brain injury. Contact us today to request a free consultation.

  • I would recommend Eric Olson to anyone. He was very professional and strived to educate me in making the best decisions when I had no idea how to decide what to do. He is very knowledgeable about his particular field of law and used that in my best defense. I am very pleased with the job that he did for me.

  • I was in an auto accident three years ago. The first auto accident I have ever been in, but the other driver was ticketed. This lead to slow and obvious pain that grew worse.
