On Behalf of | Nov 28, 2015 | Personal Injury


At the law firm of Winegar Wilhelm Glynn & Roemersma, our skilled and experienced personal injury attorneys have a long history of success in handling brain injury cases of all types. Whatever the cause of a brain injury, the results are nearly always devastating, not only for the victim, but for virtually everyone in the victim’s life. The physical, emotional, mental, and financial consequences of a brain injury are almost impossible to calculate. While our attorneys may not be able to resolve the physical, emotional, and mental hardships, we can certainly do our part to help with the financial ones.

Of course, not all brain injuries are caused by the negligence of other people. But when they are, victims and their families are entitled to compensation. If you or a member of your family has suffered a brain injury due to an accident caused by someone elses’ negligence, then we can help you file a claim against the responsible party. You may be able to recover compensation for such losses and expenses as:

  • Hospital and doctor’s bills
  • Surgery and rehabilitation costs
  • Medicine and home care expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

We invite you to learn more about some of the most common brain injury causes from our New Jersey and Pennsylvania attorneys. Then contact our personal injury law firm to arrange for an evaluation of your brain injury case today.

What are the most common causes of brain injuries?

The majority of brain injuries occur during traumatic accidents. An object may come into forceful contact with or penetrate the skull, or a violent jolt may cause the brain to collide with the inner wall of the skull. Many of the most severe brain injuries do not manifest immediately clear symptoms, which is why victims of accidents should always seek medical attention right away, even if they believe that they have not been seriously injured. Once a brain injury begins to produce clear symptoms, irreparable damage has already been done. Often, by the time treatment is sought, the damage is permanent or even fatal.

The personal injury attorneys of Winegar Wilhelm Glynn & Roemersma handle cases involving brain injuries of all types, including those resulting from:

  • Car, truck, motorcycle, bus, SUV, and other motor vehicle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Construction and other workplace accidents
  • Violent attacks
  • Accidents involving falling objects
  • Falls from ladders, scaffolding, roofs, and other high places
  • Accidents involving defective products such as brakes and other automotive products, toys, machinery, and motorcycle helmets
  • Medical malpractice, including the misdiagnosis of or failure to diagnose a brain disorder or brain injury
