Strengthen Your Recovery After A Brain Injury With An Oxford Attorney On Your Side

Your Accident, Your Injuries, Your Needs
As the home of Miami University, Oxford sees its fair share of accidents occurring in connection with active student lives. You may have been injured through a scenario such as those below:
- In a frat party or barroom brawl
- While riding your bicycle to class
- In a fall from a balcony
- In an emergency room mishap
- In an auto, truck or motorcycle accident
- In a bicycle or pedestrian accident
No matter what caused your head injury, a prompt investigation is essential. Part of the process of building a strong injury claim on your behalf includes documenting your efforts to get better. Working closely with a neuropsychologist, a physical or occupational therapist, and other professionals can strengthen your case significantly.
The effects of your TBI may include:
- A loss of consciousness when your head was injured
- Headaches, numbness or vertigo
- Physical discomforts
- Moodiness or personality change
As we prepare an injury claim or lawsuit for you, we will make sure to include demands for compensation for all your losses, including pain and suffering. Your spouse and/or minor children may have their own loss claims, too, as they must now do without the caliber of comfort and support that you previously provided in their lives.
