Traumatic brain injuries and other types of brain damage create special hardships for the victim. The brain is the control center of the body, and any damage may affect cognitive skills, speech, motor function, memory, and countless other body systems and aspects of one’s personality and life. Specialized knowledge is required to understand the anatomy and medical issues of a brain injury, along with the types of lifetime care, services, and equipment required.
The Rhode Island brain injury lawyers at Decof, Decof & Barry have extensive experience in these medically complex cases, including:
- Birth asphyxia
- Cerebral palsy
- Trauma from falls and blows to the head
- Car crashes
- Failure to diagnose and treat meningitis and other medical conditions
- Negligent anesthesia resulting in oxygen deprivation
- Other types of traumatic and acquired brain damage
Whether a brain injury is caused by malpractice, intentional wrongdoing, or negligence, we stand ready to help. Call (401) 200-4059 for a free consultation.
Providing Brain Injury Victims with Critical, Lifelong Care
The victim of a brain injury may face a long and difficult road ahead. With brain damage, there is no tried and true way to reverse the harm already done. Instead, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and other practices may be used to help a victim regain certain skills or cope with a disability. Depending on the extent of damage, the victim may face a lifetime of 24-hour medical care and assistance with day-to-day activities. The cost of such care can easily add up to millions of dollars over his or her life.
Our Rhode Island brain injury attorneys have the goal of providing our clients with critical, lifelong care, which can help re-establish independence. We accomplish this by pursuing maximum compensation on their behalf, taking into account every single expense, injury, or loss they have experienced and may experience in the future. We leave no stone unturned.
