DO I HAVE A CASE?
If you suffered a severe brain injury, it is highly possible that you have a valid case. Traumatic brain injuries can have preventable causes of first impacts—one national case involved a football helmet that failed to provide adequate padding to young athletes. However, permanent brain damage often occurs as a result of secondary impacts, which is when someone receives another brain injury before their first concussion is fully healed. This can result in permanent brain damage, coma, or even death. These injuries can be traced back to negligent athletic institutions and protective gear companies.
WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD A CONCUSSION ATTORNEY?
Jones Brown PLLC provides counsel to concussion victims on a contingency fee basis. Put simply, that means you pay no fees or charges for your case. Our firm handles every expense involved with your case. In return, our firm receives a percentage of the result of your case—which means if your case doesn’t win anything, you owe us nothing. With contingency fees, you take no risk.
WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER?
Concussion injuries sometimes have nebulous symptoms that require medical documentation and expert witnesses to prove in court. For victims with permanent brain damage, they’ll need a verdict or settlement that will provide for their needs for the rest of their lives. In both cases, you’ll need an attorney who is experienced with traumatic brain injuries, their implications, and the compensation they require.
WHAT CAN I RECOVER?
Concussion injuries that deal with long-term injuries can command verdicts that pay for long-term needs. This includes treatment and rehabilitation for severe injuries, as well as 24-hour care for victims who require constant supervision. This level of care can require hundreds of thousands of dollars over a lifetime, if not millions. Plaintiffs can also recover compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and other non-medical losses.
