Legal Response After A Brain Injury

What has a professional lost when he or she is no longer able to work due to a traumatic brain injury? Can you predict the cost of future treatment of brain damage? How do you evaluate an offer from your insurance company for compensation?

At the law firm of Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, these are questions our attorneys have been dealing with on a daily basis since 1958. We have a long history of getting results for victims of all types of brain injuries, including concussion injuries. We always take immediate action, addressing these questions as quickly as possible and seeking to maximize compensation for brain injury victims in Ohio and northern Kentucky.

Working With Experts To Evaluate Brain Injury Settlement Offers

It is in any insurance company’s interest to pay as little as possible for a brain injury claim.

Our lawyers call on medical experts and life-care planners, among others, to accurately evaluate the victim’s losses. We then utilize state-of-the-art technology to build a strong case to demonstrate to a jury the extent of the victim’s losses and the obligations of those responsible.

We are prepared to go to trial and argue in front of a jury if the insurance company does not offer a settlement that meets your needs.

What Act Of Negligence Caused The Brain Injury?

Many of the brain injury cases we handle are the result of motor vehicle accidents. In these and cases involving all other acts of negligence, we are committed to providing comprehensive representation.

We are not here just to handle one case and move on. Our commitment to you goes further than that. We give every case personal care and will remain by your side as long as you need us.

We understand that brain injuries may require months or even years of treatment, and we want you to know that you can turn to us at any time.


Concussions are traumatic brain injuries (TBI). A concussion injury is an early warning sign that victims of negligence should pay close attention to, seeking medical attention immediately. Concussion injuries may result from acts of negligence of all types, including motor vehicle accidents, falls, and other types of accidents.

Sometimes, victims of this type of brain injury may not even notice some of the subtle symptoms that appear after the concussion has seemingly resolved itself. It may be family members who notice the victim’s changes in personality. Other symptoms include memory loss and headaches

Traumatic Brain Injury

Severe traumatic brain injuries are much more obvious. Some victims may remain in a coma for the rest of their lives. Families will be left struggling to cover medical expenses and working with doctors to do everything they can to improve the victim’s chances of recovery.

Traumatic brain injuries contribute to deaths and cause permanent disability in the United States each year. In fact, traumatic brain injuries are a contributing factor in a third of all injury-related deaths in the United States. During 2010, approximately 2.5 million victims suffered a traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries can range in severity, but are always likely to be physically, financially and emotionally costly to victims and their families.

Traumatic brain injury can result in:

  • Decreased cognitive function, such as attention, memory or focus;
  • Disrupted motor function, such as weakness in the extremities and impaired coordination and balance;
  • Impaired sensation, such as hearing, vision and impaired perception and touch
  • Emotional challenges, such as personality changes, depression, anxiety, aggression or limited impulse control

The fall out from a traumatic brain injury, or “TBI,” can impact every aspect of the victim’s life, including their relationships with family and friends who may struggle to recognize them following a TBI; their ability to maintain stable employment; and their ability to care for themselves and perform routine daily tasks. The treatment of traumatic brain injuries can be extensive and costly. It is important to have early management and treatment of a traumatic brain injury.

Treatment for traumatic brain injury comes at a very high cost. Our lawyers work hard to make certain that the negligent party is the one covering this and all other costs associated with the brain damage.
