Brain injuries can be caused by many different types of accidents and events. It can be the result of an auto accident, a fall, a bullet, being hit by another person, or any situation in which you sustain a hit to your head. Traumatic brain injuries can result in a range of symptoms, from minor headaches to catastrophic debilitation. You may suffer loss of motor skills, balance, memory, and speech and visual impairment. You may find yourself unable to control your emotions, leading to outbursts of anger or periods of depression. You may find you no longer have the ability to connect with your spouse, children, or loved ones in the same way you did before the accident. You may no longer be able to work in the same capacity or at all. You may be unable to drive or walk. Your ability to live independently may be compromised.
At Rowen & Klonoski, we often see brain injuries resulting from auto, truck or motorcycle accidents. This happens either because our client hits his/her head on the windshield or window of the vehicle, or is ejected or thrown from the vehicle and hits the ground. Your path to recovery goes far beyond the immediate medical expenses for physical injuries. It often involves prolonged treatment and rehabilitation, long term lifestyle changes, loss of income and sometimes the need for lifelong care.

We have handled brain injury cases which were caused by accidental poisoning, drug overdose, medical malpractice, shootings, premise liability injuries, and simple falls.
