Head and Brain Injuries
An automobile collision can be very jarring. The G-forces involved often wreak havoc on a body. The head can be whipped back and forth violently in a matter of milliseconds. In that time, the brain can be injured or the cervical spine can be damaged.
Attorneys who handle auto accidents involving these injuries need to understand the issues that come from head and brain injuries. Whether severe brain injuries affecting speech and motor skills, or “mild” traumatic brain injuries that still affect every waking hour of a victim’s life, brain and head injuries require special legal expertise.
Dan Slater has significant experience helping people who have suffered head and brain injuries from auto collisions. He understands the patience that is required when dealing with somebody whose injuries have caused an emotional roller coaster. He’s seen the impacts that often include balance problems, visual issues, and TMJ pain.
“Real Cases — Real Results” Case Study No. 8:
While driving in Canon City, a family of three generations — a grandmother and two minor children — is hit by a careless driver from behind. The first lawyer they see tells them they won’t see more than $25,000 altogether from the collision. The grandmother suffers from mild traumatic brain injuries; the children have neck and spinal injuries. The insurance company tries to stop paying the family’s medical bills. In the end, the family sees Dan Slater. With Dan’s help, the insurance company is forced to pay the family’s medical bills, plus future medical bills, and Dan recovers well over $200,000 for the family in addition to the medical bills.
Beyond understanding the injuries involved, a lawyer has to be able to effectively communicate the impacts of these injuries to an insurance company and a jury. Dan Slater takes his experience with these kinds of injuries and uses it to effectively fight for his clients.
Insurance companies will often use the fact that these injuries are “unseen” to try to devalue the impacts of a car accident. Dan works to ensure that insurance adjusters don’t get away with this cynical attempt to take advantage of head and brain injuries.
If you or somebody you love has suffered head and/or brain injuries from an auto accident, you need experienced, competent, knowledgeable representation.
You need Dan Slater.
