At Albert G. Stoll, A Law Corporation, we have extensive experience assisting clients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis, serious burns, and amputations due to an accident caused by the negligence or wrongful acts of another party.
Injuries of this nature typically require long-term care and treatment. To obtain maximum recovery in a personal injury lawsuit, it is necessary to calculate the extent of future expenses and pain and suffering a serious injury victim is likely to incur, which frequently requires the expertise of medical and financial planning experts who can put together a defensible estimate encompassing past, present, and future damages.
Our attorneys help the victims of:
Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when sudden force, impact, or shaking causes brain damage, and commonly occurs due to a motor vehicle accident or fall. TBI can vary widely in severity, from a mild concussion causing no permanent damage to brain hemorrhages and permanent comas. Likewise, symptoms also vary greatly and include:
- Confusion or disorientation
- Nausea and vomiting
- Blurred vision or increased light sensitivity
- Mood changes
- Loss of smell or taste
- Altered sleeping patterns
- Difficulty concentrating or remembering things
- Ringing in the ears
Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when a traumatic force tears or bruises the spinal cord. Typically, only the areas of the body below the point of injury are affected, so the higher up on the spinal cord the injury occurs, the more serious the consequences tend to be. SCIs can lead to paralysis, including paraplegia, which affects the lower extremities, and quadriplegia or tetraplegia, which can affect all four limbs, the head, neck, and chest. Typical symptoms include numbness, loss of feeling or functionality, and severe respiratory or breathing problems. In addition to the emotional trauma, the medical costs of an SCI are substantial, necessitating legal representation that is familiar with the long-term effects of this type of injury.
Limb amputations are often necessary after a workplace accident involving dangerous machinery, but are also common after car accidents, pedestrian accidents, and bicycle accidents. We understand the severe emotional impact an amputation can have on you and your family, and strive to obtain the maximum recovery that will fully compensate you for your injury.
Severe burns that occur because of a vehicle accident, construction site accident, or defective product are among the most painful injuries an individual can sustain. These injuries often require years of care, rehabilitation, and in some cases multiple reconstructive surgeries. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious burn injury, it is important to work with lawyers who have experience evaluating these cases and regularly work with experts who can accurately estimate all of the future damages a victim is likely to incur.
