Traumatic Brain Injuries
High-Stakes Litigation For Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Cases
Suffering a head injury can be a frightening and painful experience. Even if there was no loss of consciousness or just a brief loss of consciousness, traumatic brain injuries can result in life-changing emotional and physical circumstances. Whether you or your loved one is suffering from an immediate brain injury or discovers latent injuries following an accident, speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after seeking immediate medical treatment can be vital to the quality of life you are able to lead after the accident.
Head injury litigation is complex. Successful claims for complex catastrophic injuries such as TBI cases require a thorough investigation, extensive discovery, expert testimony and intense litigation strategies. The legal team at Law Offices of Gedney M. Howe, III, P.A., intentionally limits their caseload so they can devote the resources and attention necessary to develop strong cases for traumatic brain injury cases.
There Are Many Causes And Effects Of Brain Injuries

- Physician errors during childbirth
- Sports injuries
- Cycling or pedestrian accidents
- Boating accidents
