Of all the injuries that an individual can suffer, brain injuries are among the most frightening and the most deadly. I have successfully handled numerous brain injury cases over the last 25 years, and know how traumatic they can be. Brain or traumatic head injury cases are traumatic for not only the victim but also his loved ones and are givers too. You want a lawyer who has experience with these types of cases and can give you the answers and guidance needed to navigate the challenges that such a case face. Do not simply call the ad you see on television or sign an attorney fee agreement with someone who comes to you and is only an investigator or paralegal and not the attorney who will in fact be handling your case. These are questionable practices and a red flag that should make you think to contact another lawyer such as myself, who will personally meet with you and be in direct charge of your case.
A traumatic brain injury (TB) typically involves a sudden physical trauma to the head. TBI can result from closed head or penetrating head injuries. Closed head injuries occur when the head violently strikes an external object, but the object does not penetrate the skull. Penetrating head injuries occur when the object pierces the skull and damages brain tissue.
There are several different types of traumatic injuries that can damage the brain. A skull fracture occurs when the bone of the skull cracks or breaks. A depressed skull fracture occurs when pieces of the broken skull press into the tissue. This can cause bruising of the tissue called a contusion. A contusion can also occur in response to shaking of the brain with the confines of the skull. Damage to a major blood vessel within the head can cause a hematoma, or heavy bleeding into or around the brain.
The systems of TBI are not necessarily dramatic and can involve conditions as unremarkable as a simple headache. Other warning signs of TBI include nausea, seizures, confusion or other cognitive problems, a change in personality, irritability, and other emotional and behavioral problems. Although the symptoms of TBI can be subtle, the effects of TBI are anything but subtle. The consequences of TBI can range from a mild concussion to permanent physical, cognitive, and behavioral/emotional impairments, seizure disorders, paralysis, coma and death.

Spinal Cord Injuries
Although the spinal cord is only 18 inches long, and is made up of tiny, delicate nerve cells, a spinal cord injury (SCI) can be a traumatic and devastating injury resulting in a lifetime of pain, suffering and huge medical expenses. At t he Law Offices of Jason Steven Dalley, we know how devastating these injuries can be, and we have more than?? (How many years) of experience in helping spinal cord injury victims put their lives back together.
A SCI typically involves some type of trauma to the nerve cells that form the spinal cord. As the spinal cord carries messages from the brain to carious parts of the body to control functions such as movement, breathing, speaking, and other critical body functions, an injury to the spinal cord disrupts this communication, leading to the impairment of the body’s sensory, motor and involuntary reflex functions. Depending upon the nature and extent of the SCI, these disruptions can lead to two devastating conditions: paraplegia (paralysis of the lower portions of the body) or quadriplegia (paralysis of the upper and lower parts of the body).
The principal causes of SCI are motor vehicle collisions, slip and falls, acts of violence, sports-related injuries, and other incidents that cause injury or compressions to the nerve cells of the spinal cord. Approximately 250,000 Americans currently suffer from some form of SCI, and there are about 11,000 new cases annually.
The costs related to SCI can be staggering. More than half of all spinal cord injuries result in quadriplegia, resulting in an average hospital stay of 95 days and approximately $120,000 in medical expenses. For individuals who sustain SCI at the age of 25, the average lifetime medical costs for quadriplegia is $1.35milliom. And these figures do not take into account the physical and emotional suffering of the victims, the loss of wages and other income, and the financial and emotional burdens that SCI places on the victims’ care givers, who are more often than not close family members of the victim.
