Brain Injury Attorneys in Birmingham
Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Victims of Head and Brain Injuries in Jefferson County and Beyond
If you or a loved one has suffered a head or brain injury as a result of a work-related accident, you face a potentially long road to recovery and rehabilitation. Because the brain is the command center of the entire body, any damage to the brain can have wide-ranging effects, including decreased motor function, a seizure disorder, mental changes such as depression or hostility, and even loss of the ability to comprehend and make everyday decisions. Because a head or brain injury may require significant medical expense, time off work or other financial burdens, you need the help of a committed and experienced lawyer to guide you through the process of filing a workers’ compensation and/or a third-party claim.
At the Birmingham office of Allwin E. Horn, IV, P.C., we work diligently on behalf of our injured clients to ensure that they receive the full benefits they may be owed as a result of their work-related injuries. We can do the same for you.
Mapping The Unseen Injury
Head and brain injuries can be tricky because often it is not immediately obvious what the damage will be. A blow to the head can result in a number of physical and mental effects, including:
- Subdural hematoma
- Fractured skull
- Frontal lobe injury
- Brain damage
- Memory loss
- Loss of cognitive ability
- Neurological deficits
If you’ve suffered a head or brain injury at work, it is crucial that you receive immediate medical treatment to stabilize yourself and prevent secondary damage. It is also vitally important that you receive a complete medical evaluation to determine the extent of your injuries, as this evaluation will be used as the basis for deciding what you may be owed through workers’ compensation or a third-party claim. We can help you to gather all the information you need to make a claim, and our attorneys can visit you outside the office or at the hospital if needed. We work on contingency, which means you don’t need to worry about legal fees until we recover compensation for your recovery.
