Brain Injuries



Western Wisconsin Accident Lawyers

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result in memory loss, learning disability, paralysis, blindness, personality change, severe pain and other problems. Injuries to different parts of the brain cause specific neurologic deficits that can be diagnosed and treated by neurologists and neuropsychologists. General diffuse injuries are more difficult to prove and diagnose. MRI and CT scans can provide critical evidence of the nature and cause of brain damage. If the injury was caused by an act of negligence, the first step is to get proper medical care. The second step is to contact an experienced personal injury attorney.

At the office of Egan & Richgels, S.C., we have more than 30 years of experience serving accident victims. We can help victims in La Crosse and the surrounding parts of western Wisconsin, as well as Winona and the surrounding parts of southeast Minnesota. We have already recovered millions of dollars in compensation for people just like you.

What Caused the Brain Injury?

Our attorneys stand up for the rights of people who have suffered brain injuries due to any type of negligence, including:

Time to Heal Is Important

After a traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs as a result of a car accident, fall or other trauma, treatment may include long periods of bed rest while the swollen portions of the brain heal. Sometimes surgery is necessary to relieve excessive intracranial pressure.

With time, the victim may recover some lost functions. Although the brain injury patient may often appear normal to casual observers, family members, close friends and co-workers often notice personality changes, lack of ability to learn, irritability and confusion. These are all problems for which the victim should be compensated.

Fast Settlements Are Often Poor Settlements

If you or a close family member has suffered brain damage, do not accept a premature settlement from insurers. Fast settlements are often poor settlements, simply because not enough time has passed for the true impact of the severe injury to be fully understood. We have the experience and the skills to help ensure that compensation is adequate and fair.
