Head and Spinal Injuries

Indianapolis catastrophic injury lawyers

The Indiana attorneys at Yosha Cook & Tisch frequently handle traumatic brain injury and spinal injury cases.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from a closed-head or penetrating head injury. TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending upon the nature and extent of brain damage. The outcome can range from temporary to severe and permanent impairment of one’s cognitive and social functions. In some instances TBI can even result in death, or worse, an unrecoverable vegetative state.

Symptoms vary and can be subtle in nature, yet profound in their effect. Related symptoms may include:

  • Headaches
  • Mental confusion
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Double vision
  • Personality and behavioral changes
  • Fatigue
  • Strange tastes in one’s mouth
  • Coordination loss
  • Memory loss
  • Erratic sleep patterns
  • Symptoms of hemiplegia

Neuropsychological evaluation is often necessary to properly identify and diagnose the condition.

Our TBI litigation experience allows us:

  • To properly identify and develop evidence to demonstrate the nature and impact of TBI on a personal injury victim
  • To seek necessary evaluation and testing for a complete recovery of damages
  • To effectively challenge defense experts who might question the TBI diagnosis

Spinal Cord Injuries

Injuries to the spinal cord have often been ridiculed and have come under attack by the insurance industry. The nature and extent of the victim’s injuries does not necessarily correlate with the damage to their vehicle. Each person’s condition has to be individually evaluated. Spinal cord injuries can result in a number of spinal conditions, such as:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Nerve root impingement
  • Stretch traumas
  • Ligament damage
  • Vertebra and disc damage

Spinal cord injuries can be caused by low– or high-speed impacts, slips and falls, and other accidents. They can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life and daily living activities.

Our previous experience in identifying and developing evidence (noted in our white papers) helps us establish the extent of your spinal cord injuries. We diligently collect and review all of your past and present medical records and also work with your health care providers to retrieve objective evidence of trauma through EMGs, MRIs, CT scans, X-rays, and other evidentiary reports to support your claim.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
