The human brain is incredibly complex. It is made of many delicate parts, which together create an intricate command center for the entire body. Any damage can fundamentally and even permanently alter one’s quality of life.
Brain injuries are devastating, life-changing events. They turn their victims’ whole worlds upside down — often in mere moments.
At Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C., we take brain injury claims seriously. We know how overwhelming their impact can be. It is our mission to ensure no family has to endure this terrible burden alone.
Brain Injuries: Common And Severe
More than two million people suffer some form of brain injury every single year. Many of these are traumatic in nature, accompanied by severe or permanent disability. Others are less ominous but may require extensive treatment or hospitalization, as is the case for most concussions.
The most common causes of brain injuries in Nebraska include:
- Automobile accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Sports accidents
- Assault and Battery
- Other violent crimes
- Slip and fall (or other types of falls)
- Swimming pool accidents, including diving board accidents
- Construction site injuries
- Unsafe working conditions
- Unsafe premises (e.g. public or commercial property)
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injury
Brain injuries usually arise as a result of negligence. The brain is a vulnerable organ but it is well protected by the head. It is rare, then, for the brain to sustain injury in the ordinary course of life. In the majority of cases, someone else’s careless, reckless, or dangerous behavior is to blame.
The responsible parties are likely represented by insurance companies or attorneys who will do everything to avoid paying what you’re owed. You need an experienced and effective legal representative to fight for your rights.
At Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C., we understand just how multifaceted brain injury claims can be. Because the brain is involved in literally every aspect of your life, the span of your suffering may be quite extensive, to say the least.
