Closed Head & Brain Injuries

Some injuries suffered due to another's negligence may heal over time, however some injuries such as brain and closed head injuries may leave victims with irreversible and permanent disabilities.

Over 5 million people in the United States suffer disabilities due to head injuries including traumatic brain injuries, acquired brain injuries, closed head injuries, penetrating head injuries and anoxic brain injuries. Each year in the United States, 270,000 people will suffer head and brain injuries, 80,000 people will suffer severe head trauma, and 70,000 will die.

According to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, traumatic brain injury means an acquired injury to the brain caused by an external physical force, resulting in total or partial functional disability or psychosocial impairment, or both.

The term brain injury applies to open or closed head injuries resulting in impairments in one or more areas, such as cognition, language, memory, attention, reasoning, abstract thinking, judgment, problem-solving, sensory, perceptual and motor abilities, psychosocial behavior, physical functions, information processing and speech.

Approximately 50% of serious and traumatic head injuries are due to accidents including motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents and swimming and diving accidents.

If you or your loved one has suffered a closed head or brain injury due to negligence, it is important that you contact a personal injury law firm that specializes in serious injury cases.

Calton & Burns, Attorneys at Law, have over 25 years experience in personal injury matters. Our experienced team of lawyers will investigate the facts, evaluate your claim, determine which parties and insurance companies are responsible, and handle all of the details of preparing and presenting your case.

Your ability to make a claim for personal injury rests upon three factors:

  1. First is liability, that is, who caused the accident and is legally responsible;
  2. Second is the establishment of an amount of damages to which you are legally entitled, and;
  3. Third, the ability to collect the damages, specifically what sources, such as insurance or individual assets, are available for payment of a settlement or damage award.

As attorneys we help our clients establish the liability, evaluate and prove the damages, and collect the settlement or judgment. We handle all of the details and are prepared to help our clients get through the hardships and stress created by a serious and often permanent injury.
