Brain Injury Cases
Ringsmuth Wuori PLLC handles many types of cases that involve a brain injury, also called a closed-head injury or a traumatic brain injury. For example, such injuries can be sustained in a car accident, by a fall, from a lack of oxygen, or from exposure to toxic chemicals. Such injuries are frequently discounted by case managers or others retained by insurance carriers whose jobs are, at least in part, to limit claims and limit treatment. Loss of consciousness, “blacking out,” headaches, head and neck pain, dizziness, nausea, and memory loss are several of many symptoms that may indicate a need for further medical evaluation and diagnosis. Every brain injury should be taken seriously.
Traumatic brain injury victims and their families face difficult circumstances including longer-term problems in some cases. Therapy, retraining and coping mechanisms are some of the means by which a rehabilitation team helps those suffering from a head injury move forward.
Ringsmuth Wuori PLLC attorneys and staff have assisted individuals and families with brain injuries caused by carbon monoxide poisoning, car accidents, trucking accidents, boating accidents, toxic exposure, and explosions, among others. There are a wide variety of resources to help ranging from No-Fault (PIP) benefits, Workers’ Compensation benefits, third-party liability lawsuits against at-fault parties, to Social Security and disability claims.

Many times these brain injuries are called mild, but their effects are far from it. On top of it, the diagnosis is often missed by the emergency room, or by the family doctor. It is usually the victim or their friends and family that notice something isn’t quite right after the injury. Memory problems, headache and personality changes are quite common. It is very important that you get to a specialist right away. Furthermore, how you describe what happened to you in the accident is critical when the experts evaluate whether you have a brain injury.
We are recognized experts in representing people that have suffered brain injury from a variety of causes. We have represented more brain injury victims than anyone in the area, and many lawyers and medical providers refer those patients with brain injuries to us for help. We work with neuropsychologists, speech therapists, counselors and case managers who treat people with brain injuries. We also are members of, and have presented to, the Brain Injury Task Force. This is a group of health care providers and others that work with brain injury victims and their families.
Because we understand the causes and problems associated with brain injury and work closely with the doctors, we are better able to explain your injury to an insurance company, judge or a jury. Not surprisingly, this leads to better results for your case. We have gone to trial in many brain injury cases, with record setting results.
