Protecting Your Interests When You Have Sustained A Severe Injury To Your Brain
It takes far less than you might think to sustain severe brain damage. Our skulls are designed to protect our brains from injury but the soft tissue inside can be jostled around or hurt by something as simple as your head being thrown forward in a car accident, even if you don't hit the steering wheel or dashboard.
Swelling in a traumatic brain injury can cause a host of problems, even after it has receded, including:
- Memory problems
- Personality changes
- Blurred vision
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of sense of smell and taste
- Loss of manual dexterity
- Loss of balance
Unfortunately these injuries are the first to occur and the last to be diagnosed properly. The diagnosis and continuing treatment can be very expensive and, depending on the severity of the injury, you may not be able to work. You should not have to cover these expenses yourself.

Providence Closed Head Injury Attorneys
Insurance companies are more interested in protecting their bottom lines than they are in paying for all of your injury-related expenses. That is why you need aggressive representation to help you obtain an award that will cover all of your current and future expenses. The lawyers of Dana & Dana will consult with experts, including recommending that you get a neuropsychological evaluation to determine what abilities you have lost due to the accident. We will consult with an economist to determine the loss to your potential earnings because of the damage done to you. Using this and evidence from your accident, we will present your case to your insurance company. We advocate for going to trial because we believe that you deserve to have your case heard by a jury of your peers. We know that this is the best way to get the award you need in order to have a good continuing quality of life.
