In the chaotic aftermath of an accident it can be hard to know where to turn to for support. Here at the Law Offices of Brian D. Witzer we have the experience to help you gain compensation for your injuries. By consulting early on with an experienced lawyer, you will have help through the maze of litigation. After a serious accident, brain injury can occur and leave the victim debilitated, in an extended coma, and possibly experiencing long-term cognitive deficits. Head trauma is commonly caused by automotive accidents, industrial accidents, defective products, environmental toxins, assaults and accidents that take place at home or at work. These injuries can be to the head, scalp and skull. However, in our experience we have found that underlying brain injuries can be masked and require neurologic evaluation to identify long-term effects. Only a few seconds of unconsciousness in a hospital, or the site of the accident, can be a precursor for cognitive damage and a possible hallmark for long-term cognitive damage. Here at Witzer Law we have a network of experts to help you define the extent of your injury.
Head trauma is a leading cause of hospitalization among children, and the elderly. Conditions often associated with the head trauma are hematomas, intracranial hemorrhage, skull fracture, concussion, and cerebral contusions. Those who survive with head trauma may also be facially disfigured, and be in need of plastic surgery to recover their appearance.
Our firm specializes in recognizing types of subtle brain injury, which can bring about life changing behavior in the victim, and cannot be cured.
