Charlotte Brain Injury Attorney
The human brain is the most complex organ in the body. And yet in most areas, this vital organ that is responsible for directing nearly all of our functions is only protected by a few millimeters of bone. Because of this, virtually any blunt force to the head can cause a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and create a lifetime of personal and healthcare needs.
At the Sasser Law Firm, the lawyers represent people from throughout the Carolinas and elsewhere who have suffered an injury to the brain due to someone else’s indifferent or reckless actions. Specific types of brain injuries include:
- Closed head injuries – closed head injuries are those where the skull is not fractured but the brain itself has been damaged due to blunt force impact
- Open head injuries – open head injuries happen when a foreign object breaks through the skull and physically impacts the brain
- Anoxic brain injuries – anoxic brain injuries occur when the brain does not receive enough oxygen for a period of time…heavy bleeding after an accident can cause anoxic injuries
North Carolina Brain Damage Lawyers
Because each part of the human brain (cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem) regulates certain functions, how the brain will be affected by these injuries is predictable to some extent based on which part was injured. In these cases, the firm’s attorneys work with recognized medical experts and others to determine the total impact these catastrophic injuries will have and to develop a Life Care Plan that addresses them in full.
In addition, they will also work to ensure that the injury settlement is properly structured and help families and individuals through the process of applying for social security disability benefits.
