Hold Negligent Parties Accountable For The Harm They Have Caused
All Brain Injuries Are Serious Injuries
No part of the body is more precious than the brain, which contains the very essence of who we are. Unfortunately, this crucial organ is very fragile, and it can sustain damage through just about any kind of trauma, from car accidents to football tackles to simply slipping on a wet floor. Worse still, the full effect of a brain injury may not be immediately apparent after an accident — that’s why it’s important to seek proper medical care after an accident whether it seems major or minor.
Once you have received medical attention, the next step after a serious accident is to meet with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Serving Durham, North Carolina, and the surrounding area, Richard Watson Law, PLLC, has the knowledge and experience to help you navigate through the complicated procedures of personal injury litigation and settlements. In every case, my highest priority is to keep you up to date on developments in your case so that you can make informed decisions. I will use every legal tool available to demonstrate that negligence caused your injury, in order to maximize your chances of obtaining the compensation you deserve.
Experienced Support For Every Type Of Brain Injury
If you’ve experienced a severe injury, it’s important to understand both the medical and legal implications of the specific injury you have sustained. Brain injury can take many forms, including:
- Skull fracture
- Diffuse axonal injuries caused by shaking or rotation of the brain
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Brain damage to a newborn child sustained as part of a birth injury
- Brain injury caused by medical malpractice
I will help you document the exact nature of your injuries in order to strengthen your legal case.
One important brain injury case I handled involved a young girl taking horseback lessons. At only five or six years old at the time, she never should have been on that horse in the first place. It was a particularly rambunctious horse that even the trainers couldn’t handle. Of course, the horse threw the girl, she hit her head and suffered severe brain injuries. She is 30 now, in a wheelchair. She struggles to speak. I take these cases personally as a lawyer, and I do everything I can to fight for my injured clients.
