Anoxic Brain Injury

Anoxic Brain Injury Lawyers

There are many different types of brain injury and just as many ways the brain can be injured. A very serious type of brain injury is an anoxic brain injury. This type of traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain is totally deprived of oxygen for a period of time. Within minutes, permanent brain damage can occur, as vital functions of the brain become impaired and possibly lost forever. Suffering an anoxic brain injury requires the help of a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney as they will ensure your rights are protected and that you get any and all benefits you are entitled to.

Please contact our team of brain injury attorneys as they aggressively represent accident victims, injury victims and workers’ compensation victims who have suffered anoxic brain injuries. These injuries can be the result of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice and other acts of negligence.

They serve the entire United States including California, Texas, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Michigan.

Causes Of Anoxic Brain Injury

Our attorneys provide results-oriented representation in cases involving brain injuries. Some of the causes of anoxic brain injury include:

  • Drowning and suffocation
  • Electric shock
  • Undiagnosed and misdiagnosed heart conditions that lead to heart attacks
  • Carbon monoxide exposure
  • Other acts of negligence
  • Workers’ compensation accidents

Prognosis For Anoxic Brain Damage

Recovering from anoxic brain damage is difficult. Many factors contribute to the degree and rate of recovery. The amount and kind of brain damage is a critical factor; anoxic brain injury can be mild, moderate, or severe. The length of time spent unconscious or in a coma, coupled with how much normal function is recovered within the first month of the injury can indicate the chance of long-term recovery. Accident victims who have experienced severe anoxic brain injury may remain in a coma or vegetative state.

Their chances of making a full recovery recovery may be minimal. Cases of moderate anoxic brain injury have a better outcome, but recovery may still take months or years. Injury victims with mild anoxic brain injury usually make a full or nearly full recovery, and are able to live lives that are relatively normal and symptom free. No matter how mild, moderate or severe your injuries are you should always seek the help of an experienced personal injury attorney following any type of accident.

Compensation For An Anoxic Brain Injury

Victims of anoxia caused by negligent or intentional acts can sue for damages. Compensation can include the costs of medical care, long-term care, rehabilitation services, other out-of-pocket costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Our team of accident attorneys have many years experience and will conduct a thorough investigation of the events leading to the injury to establish the liability of the responsible party. Working with medical specialists such as a life-care planner, we will identify all of the medical care and rehabilitation services the injured person will need during his or her life. In the final step, our personal injury lawyers will make a complete assessment of all economic and noneconomic losses for inclusion in your claim and seek compensation for you. These may include lost wages (current and future), vehicle repair costs, property damage replacement costs, medical expenses (current and future), long term care planning and pain and suffering.

If the accident claimed the life of a loved one death benefits, funeral benefits, survival benefits (if applicable) and loss of parental guidance (if applicable) will be sought.
