Philadelphia Head And Brain Injuries

Many people who suffer head injuries recover completely. Unfortunately this does not always happen, and an injury that at first appears quite manageable can have life-changing consequences.

Sometimes the consequences of a brain injury are obvious and easy to spot. Patients can be left unable to walk, talk or swallow. They might have difficulty understanding speech or speaking.

Sometimes the most challenging cases are those that are, in medical terms, called "mild" traumatic brain injuries. While this is an accurate medical term, in terms of the lives of those affected, the consequences of these injuries can be anything but minor. They can be absolutely devastating, and can upend a personal life and a work life.

Handling a brain injury case requires experience and understanding, and an ability to work with treating physicians, psychologists and therapists. It also requires a careful, patient and informed ear. An initial client interview virtually never produces all the information necessary to understand the consequences of a brain injury. We have seen clients who have, on the surface, returned to some of the more visible markers of their preinjury life: they are at home, are not receiving active treatment, and may have even returned to work. But then it turns out that for reasons they cannot understand they cannot organize their affairs, and eventually the job is lost. Maybe they are forgetful, and lose their temper with friends and family members in ways they never did before. Maybe they can no longer follow the plot of a movie. A lawyer with extensive experience in brain injury cases will take the time to develop all these facts, and work with expert medical professionals to assess their connection to a particular brain injury.

In brain injury cases, perhaps more than in any other single category of cases, patients will benefit from treatments and therapies that can provide enormous benefits but are not covered by public or private health insurance. An experienced attorney can help secure the resources to make available the very best treatment and supportive services.

The approach taken by the lawyers at Young Ricchiuti Caldwell & Heller — in particular their focus on a small number of significant cases — makes possible the kind of careful attention that these cases require.
