Brain Injury & Concussion

Dizziness, nausea, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, headaches, cognitive deficits, fatigue, and visual motion hypersensitivity are just some of the symptoms of a brain injury that can significantly affect an injured person’s life by impairing job function, damaging relationships, and disrupting normal daily activity and quality of life. It is important to your overall recovery, both medical and financial, that you work with a medical team and legal team who understand you, your symptoms, and your individual losses. Ogborn Mihm has cultivated unique expertise in traumatic and acquired brain injuries, including concussions. We know that no two brains are the same, and therefore, no two brain injuries are the same.

Concussions are among the most common traumatic brain injuries and are particularly common brain injuries suffered by athletes. Concussions can range from mild to severe, bringing with them a host of symptoms, including those listed above. We make it our priority to understand the physiology involved in these complex injuries so that we are in the best position to help our clients get appropriate treatment to allow them to return to living their lives to the fullest.

Each Client, Each Injury is Unique

Ogborn Mihm’s primary objective is to provide unsurpassed legal representation to our clients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries by gaining a deep understanding of who they were before the injury happened and learning how their injuries most affect them post-incident. This process is critical to obtaining fair compensation in an amount that addresses immediate and future lost income and medical treatment or other life-care needs. As the process unfolds, we never lose sight of the overall well-being of our clients and their family, which means just getting a quick settlement isn’t enough. We fight for the outcome that fully accounts for the needs of our clients.

How We Can Help

At Ogborn Mihm, our goal is not just to get fair compensation for our clients, but to help them recover as fully as possible from their injuries. We work to get our clients to the best physicians and facilities, employing the latest neurological, neuroradiological, and neuropsychological methods. We have the ability to secure the resources necessary to link the incident to the cause of our client’s brain injury and to help clients determine appropriate treatment options. Even when the existence of the injury is denied by opposing parties in a case, our attorneys understand how to discover and prove the scope of an injury because we are continually learning about the emerging medical science.

Collision Sports and Concussion

Athletes who participate in collision sports demand special management and evaluation to ensure recovery and avoid re-injury. Our entire legal team is dedicated to understanding the physiology, medicine, and processes involved in recuperating from a concussion that can have long-reaching consequences if not treated properly. Before an athlete can begin the journey back to the playing field, the athlete needs approval from a medical professional. Unfortunately, situations occur too often where an athlete is returned to the field before he or she has fully recovered, resulting in life-altering consequences because proper protocols were not followed. This is where our expert representation is particularly important.
