Cape Cod Brain Injury Attorney
Traumatic brain injuries are sometimes difficult to detect. The symptoms may manifest themselves subtly over time and may not be initially apparent to the victim or to doctors. Family members are usually the first to notice that something is wrong and that their loved one is not recovering from the accident.
The long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury may profoundly alter employment and finances, relationships and family dynamics, and the victim’s quality of life. With the help of medical experts and other professionals, the personal injury attorneys of Aiken & Aiken P.C. detail a case for proper compensation for a brain injury caused by the negligence of others.
We have offices in Hyannis, Falmouth and Boston, our firm serves Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and southeastern Massachusetts. Call us today for a free consultation.
Hyannis Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Attorneys
Brain trauma can occur from direct impact, such as head and neck injuries in contact sports or a fall, from the whiplash action of a car accident, or from oxygen deprivation as in a swimming pool accident. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can refer to profound brain damage or brain stem injury, subdural hematoma (life-threatening bleeding inside the skull) or concussion and post-concussion syndrome.
Every person is affected differently. Symptoms can include:
- Cognitive deficits or problems with speech
- Memory loss and inability to concentrate
- Physiological problems (walking, balance, sensory loss)
- Headaches, dizziness or “fogginess”
- Personality change or mood swings
The person may look the same but be totally disabled by a traumatic brain injury. Our role is to help document the injury and the needs of that person, through neurological testing, observations of family members, day-in-the-life films and other evidence. If the insurance companies will not provide adequate compensation, we are prepared to present our case to a jury. Attorneys Steve Aiken and Paul Aiken are skilled trial lawyers with 75 years of combined experience in the courtroom.
