Brain Injury Lawyers in Connecticut
Helping Victims & Their Families through Catastrophic Injuries
In the U.S., brain injuries account for approximately 52,000 deaths, 275,000 hospitalizations, and over 1.4 million emergency room visits annually. A traumatic brain injury is typically caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.
Our Connecticut brain injury attorneys have handled hundreds of claims for injuries of this type, ranging from persons left comatose for extended periods to those who have suffered concussions, post-concussive syndrome, or mild traumatic brain injuries.
Pursuing Claims of All Kinds
Damage from the most severe brain injuries such as coma, wounds penetrating the skull, and so forth, are generally well accepted by most defendants and their insurers, even if some of their later consequences may be disputed.
On the other hand, defendants and insurance adjusters sometimes dispute the damages in the so-called “mild traumatic brain injury” cases, claiming that subtle effects seen in memory, cognitive function, or emotional health can be attributed to psychological or other factors that they claim are unrelated to the accident.
