Brain, Head and Spinal Cord Injuries

The attorneys at Golightly & Vannah help victims and their families who suffer from brain, head or spinal cord injuries, and tirelessly pursue the compensation owed to their clients. Brain and spinal cord injuries are considered catastrophic, and have debilitating physical and emotional effects.

Accidents involving automobile collisions, sports or activities, construction accidents, or slips and falls at businesses can cause bruises (contusions) to the spinal cord, put pressure (compression) on the spinal cord, or completely sever the nerve fibers in the surrounding area. An injury to the spinal cord can be life-changing because the spinal cord transmits signals to the body from the brain that control movement and sensations. Brain and spinal injuries may also be difficult to diagnose. 

Common symptoms of these types of injuries include:

  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Blurred or lost vision
  • Problems with speech
  • Loss of memory
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Change in behavior or demeanor

Our team of skilled attorneys will discover the connection between the accident and the injury. These types of cases often present a challenge, particularly for lawyers with little or no experience in the area.
