We Address Your Needs Now And Down The Road

The effects of a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury can extend far beyond the injured individual, disrupting the lives of spouses, children, parents, siblings and friends. The many physical and mental setbacks that can ensue often last a lifetime, making it extremely difficult for the victim and his or her family to resume their normal lives.

When a personal injury of this kind occurs because of another party's negligence, it can be especially difficult to accept. For this reason, our Stockton and Modesto area firm specializes in representing victims of traumatic brain and spinal cord injury. Our attorneys can help you and your family obtain appropriate compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering. To learn more, visit our brain and spine injury FAQ.

What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrative head wound that disrupts the brain's ability to function normally.

Brain injuries can result in a range of physical and mental problems, including memory loss, impaired motor skills and an inability to control emotions. A traumatic brain injury can even lead to epilepsy and an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

The two leading causes of traumatic brain injury are slip-and-falls and motor vehicle collisions in which victims are subjected to violent impacts at high speeds. Other common causes of traumatic brain injury include sports injuries, assault, violent crimes and child abuse.

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, 1.4 million U.S. citizens suffer serious brain injuries every year. Of these, 50,000 victims die and 235,000 are hospitalized due to traumatic brain injury.

The attorneys at Drivon Turner & Waters, PLC, are committed to representing victims whose injuries have occurred through the fault of another party, which can include but are not limited to:

Spinal Cord Injury

Our team of lawyers are committed to representing clients whose lives have been disrupted by unnecessary pain, suffering or disability.

Although not as prevalent as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries can be equally crippling and generally lead to a loss of movement and sensation, severe pain, impaired breathing, loss of bladder and bowel control, and uncontrolled spasms. A complete spinal cord injury results in total loss of movement and sensation.

Like brain injuries, spinal cord injuries are most commonly caused by serious motor vehicle accidents and falls. Spinal cord injuries may also result from sports injuries, disease and acts of violence.

The National Spinal Cord Injury Database estimates that approximately 253,000 people in the United States are living with spinal cord injuries, with about 11,000 new cases occurring per year.

If you are a victim who was seriously injured by the actions of a negligent party, our experienced attorneys can determine if your claim warrants compensatory damages for medical bills, physical therapy and lifelong care. We can also help you decide whether to pursue punitive damages for pain, suffering and loss of quality of life.
