Every year, approximately two million people sustain a head injury, and more than half a million require hospitalization. Common causes of head injury include traffic accidents, work accidents, recreational accidents, falls, accidents in the home and industrial accidents. Some head injuries result in prolonged or non-reversible brain damage.
Handling traumatic brain injury cases not only requires legal expertise, but access to a bank of medical experts with the ability to evaluate the injury and present qualified medical expert opinion that establishes the connection of the injury to the accident. It also requires working with forensic economists who are prepared to substantiate and project future loss as well as current and prior economic loss. Grant Morain has successfully resolved cases involving these unique issues.
