Brain Injuries

Our Attorneys Aggressively Seek Financial Compensation for Preventable Brain Injury in St. Louis County, St. Charles County and Lincoln County, Missouri

Has a brain injury caused by an accident or negligence altered the life of a loved one forever?

Suffering from a serious brain injury that could have been prevented is a heartbreaking event for any family. This type of injury is truly life-altering and often requires lifelong doctor visits and expensive medical treatment in addition to a reduced quality of life for the victim. When this injury occurs as a result of someone else’s negligence, your family has the right to seek financial compensation for medical bills and other damages. The Law Office of Kenneth P. Carp is highly experienced in handling these difficult and delicate cases and works tirelessly for brain injury victims to secure the damages you are entitled to.

Under what circumstances am I entitled to receive compensation for a brain injury?

Sadly, brain injuries can be a common yet catastrophic injury that results from a variety of different life situations. If someone you love has suffered a brain injury, whatever the cause, our attorneys advise you on your rights and entitlement to compensation under the law. These are just a few of the most common sources of brain injury that our lawyers assist with:

Car accidents – Motor vehicle accidents account for an astonishing 44% of all brain injuries reported in Missouri. In these cases, injuries may range from mild concussions to very severe injuries like traumatic brain injury (TBI), which results in lifelong disabilities and expensive medical treatment.

Trips, slips and falls – The second leading cause of brain injury in Missouri is accidental slips, trips and falls, which account for 26% of reported brain injuries. These accidents are especially dangerous because serious injuries are often not immediately apparent after the fall. If you or a loved one suffers a serious fall, seek medical attention immediately.

Medical malpractice – Brain injuries can arise from a number of medical situations when an adequate standard of medical care is not met. Failure to monitor vital signs, failure to properly communication symptoms or changes in a patient’s condition, bleeding in the brain or an improper dosage of medication or anesthesia can all result in serious or lifelong brain injury.

How can a personal injury attorney help me file a negligence claim for a brain injury?

Serious brain injuries require extensive medical treatment, often resulting in time missed from work and a great deal of pain and suffering. A skilled personal injury attorney works to document all the details of your injury, recording doctor visits, medical expenses and building a strong case to seek all eligible compensation. Because brain injuries often require at least some form of lifelong medical care, our skilled personal injury attorneys are an invaluable asset in securing the maximum possible compensation for your family’s financial needs.
