Brain Injuries

Experienced lawyers working on behalf of Eastern Connecticut residents who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Few traumas are as debilitating as traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can forever alter the life of the victim and their family. TBI victims may endure challenges such as physical limitations, mood swings, depression, erratic behavior, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Cognitive struggles can also accompany the injury, making it difficult to hold down a job. Tragically, the injured person may not be fully aware of their limitations, even when the problems are clear to others.

How Brain Injuries Occur

TBI occurs when there is a sudden jolt, blow, or bump to the head, or when an object penetrates the skull. TBI can be the result of a serious accident, or something as simple as whiplash — where the skull collides with the brain during a rear-end auto collision.

Causes of TBI include:

It was once believed that minor brain injuries, like concussions, were less severe and could heal in three to six months. However, more recent research shows that these brain injuries can also have a lasting and profound impact on someone’s life.

How We Can Help

Finding a proper neurologist is essential for treating TBI. At Anderson Trial Lawyers, our lawyers have practiced law in Connecticut for more than 40 years and can assist you in finding doctors and medical specialists who are skilled in the field of brain injuries.

We approach each case with the knowledge that clients with TBI face a lifetime of highly expensive treatment and medical care. We know that insurance companies often minimize your injuries and the impact they have on your quality of life. We view it as our mission to fight for full compensation for each of our clients, knowing that the outcome of the case will largely determine that client’s quality of life.

What You Can Do

If you have a TBI or any injury, the best thing you can do is help to “connect the dots.” Follow up with your provider on their recommended treatment plan to confirm that you have been following instructions, and ask about any next steps.

This is not the time to be a superhero and hope that your issues will resolve on their own. If you feel something, say something. And let the experts decide what is the best course of action for you to follow. When they make that recommendation: “connect the dots.”

Documentation such as photos, videos, or witness statements can depict a person’s life before and after the injury, illustrating for a judge or jury how the injury has had an impact on your quality of life.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
