Brain Injuries


What is considered a brain injury?

The Brain Injury Lawyers at Owens, McCrea & Linscott understand the complex problems caused by brain injuries and have substantial experience in handling these cases. Brain injury can result from trauma to the head related to auto accidents, surgical errors related to medical negligence, or any of a number of accident-related causes.

Traumatic brain injury can result from a sudden blow to the head. It can also occur after an accident or surgery, due to swelling and bleeding into the brain or bleeding around the brain. In addition, traumatic brain injury can result from a closed head injury, where there is no obvious sign of damage to the skull, yet symptoms consistent with a brain injury occur.

Depending on the severity of the brain injury, the effects can be devastating. Recovery from traumatic brain injury can be a permanent process of adjustments and accommodations for the injured victim and the individual's family. At Owens, McCrea & Linscott our lawyers provide traumatic brain injury victims and their families the support they need during a very difficult period of adjustment.
