It need not be stated that a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is one of the most devastating injuries an individual can sustain. One moment the person is normal and the next moment life has abruptly changed. It is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities, with no two injuries ever being the same. The impact a Traumatic Brain Injury has on a person and his or her family and friends is always devastating beginning with the initial shock and despair at the moment of the head trauma and continues during the recovery phases which end with continuous coping and a life of problem solving. Traumatic Brain injuries do not have the course of other types of injuries which much of the time can heal and regain their previous function. Since our brain defines who we are, the consequences of a brain injury can affect all aspects of our lives, including our personalities which is a common result from frontal lobe injuries.
Siegel & Coonerty has handled numerous traumatic brain injury cases, all to a successful conclusion. If you or someone you know has been the victim of head trauma sustaining a skull fracture, sub arachnoid hemorhage or bleed, sub dural hemmorhage or bleed, direct brain matter injury, mid line shift of the brain requiring craniotomy, diffuse axonal injury or other forms of brain injury, then you need experienced trial counsel with deep understanding of the brain injury to handle your case so contact us now.

Just like automobile or construction accidents, accidents can also happen when you go to a doctor, hospital or medical clinic. Medical malpractice is the term used when a doctor, nurse, hospital by it’s employees or other medical professional cause you harm during the course of your medical care and treatment. The medical professional can cause you harm by doing something they should not have done, such as when a surgeon causes injury to body parts that were not supposed to be a part of the surgery. Or, when doctors fail to do something that they should have done which resulted in the failure to timely diagnose and treat a medical condition such as cancer.
