Our Connecticut Lawyers Recover Compensation for Your Brain and Head Injury
Assistance for victims of serious accidents in Norwalk, Stamford and the surrounding CT communities
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) often has a profound effect on a person’s quality of life. Many victims are unable to work, to interact with friends and family or even to control certain bodily functions. Brain injuries are also far more common than most people realize. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that at least 1.7 million head injuries occur every year in the United States.
The Pickel Law Firm, LLC applies our more than 65 years of combined legal experience to pursue maximum possible compensation for you from the individuals or corporations that contributed to your or your loved one’s brain injury. Our record of six- and seven-figure results speaks for itself. In addition, we are sensitive to the many challenges you and your family face in dealing with the effects of TBI and we do everything we can to make this difficult time less stressful for you.
CT accidents that lead to TBI
The CDC reports that falls are the primary cause of TBI. Older people are particularly susceptible to falls; one in three individuals over the age of 65 falls each year, according to the CDC. Car accidents are the second leading cause of head injuries. Bikers are at high risk of head injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents, as are motor vehicle occupants who are involved in commercial truck accidents. Being struck by an object and violence are the next two most common causes of TBI.
Danger in settling too quickly
Our lawyers have represented enough traumatic brain injury victims to know that these cases are very complicated and should not be settled too quickly. You may remain unaware that you suffered brain damage until weeks or months after your accident. Once you settle your case, you waive your rights to pursue additional damages. Understanding all of your injuries is essential, therefore, before you settle your case.
Our experience makes a difference. Our access to brain injury specialists and other experts does too. We invest the necessary time and care to make certain that we have an accurate picture of your total damages so we can secure the compensation you are entitled to.
