Experienced and Compassionate Brain Injury Attorneys Ready to fight for the Settlement you deserve!

Over a million people suffer from traumatic brain injuries each year. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is also called intracranial injury, or simply head injury, and occurs when physical trauma causes brain injury.

Experience is very important when dealing with traumatic brain injuries. Fortunately, our personal injury law firm is one of the most accomplished and professional firms in the state of Oregon, is well qualified in the area of brain injury cases, and is very skilled at navigating the ins and outs of Oregon state law. No case is too small, as even mild brain injury can cause dramatic changes in a person’s life, including visible and invisible cognitive, physical, and mental disabilities. When determining the settlement a brain injury client deserves, any physical, mental, social, and emotional damages suffered by the victim and his or her family can be very difficult to quantify. Nevertheless; Dwyer, Williams, Potter is an experienced brain injury law firm ready to help you get the full representation and settlement you deserve for your brain injury.

Traumatic brain injury can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent amount of damage to the brain. TBI can cause physical, cognitive, emotional, and social difficulties. The outcome can be anything from complete recovery to permanent disability, or death.

Disabilities resulting from a TBI depend upon the severity of the injury, the location of the injury, and the age and general health of the patient. Some common disabilities include problems with cognition (attention, calculation, memory, judgment, insight, and reasoning), sensory processing (sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell), communication (language expression and understanding), social function (empathy, capacity for compassion, interpersonal social awareness and facility) and mental health (depression, anxiety, personality changes, aggression, acting out, and social inappropriateness).

The effects of traumatic brain injury can be profound. Individuals with severe injuries can be left in a long-term unresponsive state. For many people with severe TBI, long-term rehabilitation is often necessary to maximize function and independence. Even with mild TBI, the changes to a person’s life can be drastic. Change in brain function can have a dramatic impact on one’s family, job, and social and community interaction.

The top three causes of traumatic brain injuries are auto accidents, firearms, and falls. The most common mechanisms of injury (how the brain becomes injured) include:

•Open Head Injury
• Closed Head Injury
• Deceleration Injury (Diffuse Axonal Injury – compressing the brain inside the skull)
• Chemical/Toxic Injury
• Hypoxia/Anoxia (lack of oxygen)
• Tumors
• Infections
• Stroke
• Concussion

We are an Oregon statewide personal injury law firm, with lawyers in Bend, Eugene, Grants Pass, Medford, Portland, and Roseburg. Some Oregon personal injury lawyers attempt to serve the entire state out of a single office, either in Portland, Salem, or Eugene, doing everything via mail. Such a remote system often leaves clients feeling left out, with little or no personal communication. Our personal injury firm is different in that we have physical law offices throughout the state of Oregon, including locations in Bend, Eugene, Grants Pass, Medford, Portland, Roseburg.

If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance concerning a brain injury, call Dwyer, Williams, Potter Attorneys, LLP toll free at (888) 700-4337, or get a free case evaluation. Our firm is experienced in handling traumatic brain injuries, both mild and severe. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis. That means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery. Oregon has various time limitations for settling or filing a traumatic brain injury claim. Most statute of limitations run two years from the date of the traumatic brain injury. This means that if you have neither settled your brain injury claim or filed a lawsuit within two years, from the date of the traumatic brain injury, then any rights of a monetary recovery you have will be lost forever.
