We represent clients in cases involving all types of life-changing injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries and head injuries: If your loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), serious concussion or other head injury, he or she may require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. We can help you pursue the compensation you need.
- Spine injury: Because the spinal cord is one of the main control centers for the body, any damage to it can lead to serious repercussions.

The Role Of The Life-Care Planner
In many catastrophic injury cases, we engage the services of a life-care planner. This professional develops a complete outline of all the medical care, rehabilitation therapy and personal services the injured person and family will need over the course of the accident victim’s life. With this in hand and having all other aspects of the case prepared, our attorneys can then go into settlement negotiations or trial in a strong position to obtain full compensation for our client.
