Columbia Brain Injury Lawyer

No matter how you or your loved one was injured, if you are coping with the effects of a head or brain injury, it is important that you speak with a lawyer about your legal rights. From sports concussions to severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI) suffered in vehicle collisions or other accidents, it is possible to secure financial compensation for brain injuries sustained due to a wide variety of causes. However, in order to recover this compensation, you will need an experienced attorney fighting for you. Marc Brown represents brain injury victims throughout South Carolina. And if you have a claim, he can seek maximum compensation for your injury-related losses.

The Basics

Brain injury cases present the same challenges as other types of personal injury claims. You must be able to prove that someone else was at fault in the accident, and you must have a thorough understanding of the long-term effects of your (or your loved one’s) injury so that you do not settle for far too little. However, brain injury cases present some unique challenges as well. The medical science around concussions and other brain injuries is still developing, and the substantial effects of brain injuries mean that insurers and other companies will fight vigorously to avoid paying full compensation to victims and their families.

Committed Injury Lawyer Fighting For South Carolina TBI Victims

Despite these challenges, attorney Marc Brown is committed to helping victims and their families recover just compensation. He handles all types of brain injury cases, including those involving:

  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Truck, SUV, motorcycle, and car accidents
  • Assaults, robberies, and other criminal acts
  • Nursing home accidents
  • Construction site and other workplace accidents

Although concussions are by far the most common form of brain injury, there are many other types of traumatic brain injuries. While some brain injury victims may fully recover over time, others – including many diagnosed with concussions – will experience lifelong effects. With offices in Columbia and Sumter, attorney Marc Brown represents clients across South Carolina who have been diagnosed with:

  • Anoxia and Hypoxia. Anoxia and hypoxia are conditions that result in the brain receiving an inadequate supply of oxygen. If not treated promptly, this can lead to severe complications.
  • Concussions. Although concussions are rated on a scale from “minor” to “severe,” recent medical research has proven that all concussions have the potential to cause lasting effects.
  • Contusions. Contusions, or bruises, on the brain can also lead to severe complications. While some contusions will subside without invasive treatment, in some cases, patients will require surgery.
  • Coup-Contrecoup Injuries. A coup-contrecoup injury occurs when the brain makes impact with the skull and then bounces back and impacts the skull on the reverse side, resulting in a secondary injury.
  • Diffuse Axonal. Diffuse axonal injuries are characterized by damage to multiple areas of the brain. They are frequently the result of vehicle collisions and other accidents that result in severe and violent shaking of the head.
  • Hematomas. Epidural, intracerebral, subarachnoid, and subdural hematomas are brain injuries that involve bleeding and blood clotting at various levels within the brain. Similar to other types of brain injuries, they are often the result of violent shaking or blunt force trauma to the head.
  • Open Head Injuries. Open head injuries occur when an object pierces the skull or when blunt force trauma is substantial enough to crack or crush the skull. These are among the most severe forms of traumatic brain injuries, and emergency medical treatment is often required.

Symptoms Of A Traumatic Brain Injury After An Accident Or Assault

If you were recently involved in an accident or assaulted and you have not yet seen your doctor, it is important that you do so as soon as possible. The following are all common symptoms of traumatic brain injuries:

  • Headaches
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Blurred vision, light sensitivity, or other visual impairments
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty remembering
  • Difficulty sleeping or unusual fatigue
  • Dilated pupils
  • Feeling confused, dazed, disoriented, or dizzy
  • Loss of balance
  • Loss of consciousness for any amount of time
  • Mood swings
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Slurred speech or difficulty forming words
