The Leading Brain Injury Lawyer in Kansas City
The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that 1.4 million people in the United States sustain brain injuries every year. As one of the leading causes of disability among children and young adults, brain injury can cause serious physical and emotional impairments, requiring years of extensive rehabilitation and therapy. Birth trauma; a slip-and-fall accident; an auto accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident; a construction accident; or any other traumatic accident can cause a serious brain injury. The effects that a brain injury can have on both the victim and his or her family can be profound, often requiring significant financial sacrifices and lifestyle changes. If a severe brain injury is caused by the negligence of another person or party, it can be especially difficult to accept. At our Kansas City firm serving the Springfield area, a brain injury lawyer can help you and your family obtain compensation for the emotional, physical, and financial setbacks you have suffered.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that hinders the brain’s ability to function normally. Fortunately, not all head injuries result in a traumatic brain injury. On the other hand, even a seemingly mild blow to the head can have severe and long-lasting consequences such as memory loss, impaired motor skills, and an inability to control one’s emotions. A traumatic brain injury can also lead to epilepsy and an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Because a brain injury can so severely damage a person’s quality of life, our firm feels that each victim and his or her family deserve to be compensated. If the brain injury took place because of the actions of a negligent party, that party should be held responsible for the lifelong repercussions that its actions have caused. At our Kansas City and Springfield-area firm, a brain injury lawyer can help you seek justice and send a strong message to businesses and individuals whose reckless behavior has caused months, years, or even lifetimes of pain.
