Traumatic Brain Injury

[brain injury photo]Attorney Joseph Ostad represents people who have been injured in the Baltimore or Washington, D.C. region and who have suffered a traumatic brain injury in an accident.  A traumatic brain injury occurs when a blow or jolt to the head disrupts brain functions.

The consequences of a traumatic brain function may be as mild as a concussion or a severe as death. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimates that two percent of the US population needs long-term or lifelong care for disabilities caused by traumatic brain injury. The following occurrences are most often the cause of this affliction:

  • vehicle accidents and crashes,
  • firearm use, and
  • slips and/or falls.

Brain injuries can be expensive and difficult to treat.  Depending on the severity of their injuries, some patients may require life-long care in the hands of medical specialists.  If another party caused your injuries, you may be able to recover your medical costs and lost wages from them or their insurance company.  Let me explore the legal options available to you.  I will work to make sure that the appropriate insurance company will pay for future treatment relating to your injuries.
