Car accidents, falls, sporting accidents and violence are all common causes of brain injury and spinal cord injury. Those who survive these extremely serious injuries may never be the same. Brain injuries can cause symptoms ranging from loss of memory to coma. Spinal cord injuries can leave you permanently paralyzed.
If you or a member of your family has suffered a brain or spinal cord injury, it is important to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. At Popowski, Callas & Shirley, P.A., in Columbia, South Carolina, our attorneys have more than 95 years of combined legal experience representing people who have suffered these life-changing injuries.
We have obtained significant settlements for clients who suffered traumatic brain injuries, a type of closed-head injury that is the result of a forceful blow to the head that disrupts thinking and can sometimes cause a skull fracture. We represent victims who have had all types of brain injuries while at work, including injuries sustained by lack of oxygen. These injuries are caused by total or partial lack of oxygen to the brain. Near drowning and medical malpractice are among the causes of anoxic or hypoxic brain injuries.
Our legal team will assess your specific situation and advise you of your rights and options. When necessary, our attorneys will often work with a certified life care planner and an economist to make sure a plan is in place that anticipates your current and future accident-related expenses.
For example, will you need to remodel your home to make it accessible? How often will you need hospitalization, clinic visits and rehabilitative care? What are the costs associated with traveling to obtain the care you need? Will you be able to return to your old job — or any job at all?
In worker's compensation cases, people who have suffered physical brain injury are entitled to lifetime benefits.
We know the questions to ask to make certain that we demand the full amount of compensation you deserve. To learn if we can be of assistance to you, please contact our law office today. The initial consultation is free of charge.
