The Peck Law Group has successfully represented clients who have sustained traumatic brain injuries as a result of medical malpractice and other acts of negligence leading to personal injury damage. We are aware of the devastating ramifications that a brain injury can have on a person for the rest of his or her life, and it is our belief that a person must be compensated for their pain, suffering, loss, and related costs if their brain injury occurred because someone else was neglectful or negligent.
What are Brain Injuries and Head Injuries?
Each year, nearly two million people in the United States sustain traumatic brain injuries. Tens of thousands of them will die as a result. Here are just some examples of incidents where a brain injury may result because of another’s negligence.
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Medical errors
- Severe blows to the head
- Severe physical violence
- Birth trauma
- Electrical shock
- Accidents at work
- Near drowning
Common Kinds of Brain Injuries:
- Brain contusion (bruising)
- Second Impact Syndrome
- Diffuse Axonal Injury
- Brain injury during birth
- Shaken Baby Syndrome
- Coup-Contrecoup Injury
- Locked In Syndrome
Medical And Other Conditions That May Result From a Brain Injury:
- Brain damage

Not only does a traumatic brain injury affect the victim, but the lives of their loved ones are changed forever. For example, it can be heartbreaking for a child when his father cannot remember him. A person with a traumatic injury may experience frustration because of his or her inability to do simple tasks that were once effortless.
If you have sustained any kind of brain injury from an accident, it is important that you speak to a personal injury attorney right away. Even a mild head injury can sometimes lead to brain damage, and you will need to make sure that you file a personal injury claim so that the neglectful or negligent responsible party can be held liable for your medical costs.
Damages awarded to the injured party include medical costs, rehabilitation, physical and occupational therapy bills, lost income (current and future) and benefits, pain and suffering, and loss of quality and enjoyment of life.
