When a person suffers an injury that may involve the brain, it is important to be very cautious — both in terms of seeking medical care and in terms of accepting any settlement offer from the responsible party.
The brain is a delicate and complex organ. A brain injury may be immediately diagnosed, or there may be a delay. Some symptoms may appear immediately, while others may take months or even years to become known.
If you have suffered a brain injury of any type, or if you have been in an accident where brain damage is a possibility, we strongly encourage you to seek legal advice from attorneys with experience handling these complex cases.
For more than 30 years, the New Haven, Connecticut, law firm of Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., has focused its practice exclusively on representing victims of injury accidents and medical malpractice — including complex cases involving traumatic brain injury.
Our attorneys have successfully served as legal advocates on behalf of adults and children who have suffered a brain injury as a result of:
Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., recently resolved a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of a client who suffered a traumatic brain injury in a bicycle accident. Our client made a satisfactory recovery and returned to school. The case settled before trial for $615,000. Read more about our recent settlements and verdicts.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we know that determining the full consequences of a brain injury requires examination of both psychological and medical factors. Brain injuries affect more than motor skills; they affect your ability to work, understand and learn, and to have effective personal relationships with friends and loved ones.
Because traumatic brain injury can be difficult to diagnose, we arrange an objective neurological psychological test. This test analyzes damage to a person’s cognition, long and short-term memory, comprehension, concentration, balance and other mental abilities. Our attorneys work with you, your family and independent experts to determine what equipment and services you need to be fully and fairly compensated for all your losses.
Even a bruise to the brain can have serious medical consequences. If you have suffered a head injury through no fault of your own, we encourage you to schedule a free initial consultation with one of our lawyers.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not get paid unless and until you receive a settlement or a jury award.
