The Devastating Nature of Brain Injuries

Unlike other types of personal injuries, brain injuries almost always result in lifelong consequences. In personal injury law, these injuries are typically referred to as traumatic brain injuries.

At Nugent & Bryant, we know what victims of traumatic brain injury face in their daily lives. Because personal injury is our primary practice area, we have handled these tragic cases. When you work closely with an accident victim suffering from a brain injury, you appreciate how hard they must struggle to perform daily tasks most people take for granted. Over the years, we have built meaningful relationships with our clients and their families. As a result, we are firmly dedicated to helping the people we represent obtain justice for their injuries.

Brain injures result from a variety of accidents. Many traumatic brain injuries occur in car accident crashes, where external objects bluntly impact the skull. Others are caused by slips and falls. Some victims are injured due to a doctor’s negligence during surgery when oxygen deprivation leads to irreversible brain damage.

Because the brain is the body’s most complex organ, physicians are still largely mystified regarding its ability to recover after trauma. Although some brain injury victims go on to lead relatively ordinary lives, others never get better. The financial, mental and emotional cost of these injuries is enormous. Victims and their families must pay for hospital bills, doctors’ visits, therapy, rehabilitation, lost wages, diminished earning capacity and in-home nursing care. In some cases, grieving family members must bear funeral costs for a loved one who has died as a result of severe brain injuries.

Brain Injury Cases Are Complex

If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, you need a legal team with the experience and knowledge to bring a successful personal injury claim on your behalf. At Nugent & Bryant, we strive to excel in all aspects of personal injury litigation. We work one on one with each client to create a case strategy focused on achieving the best results with minimal cost.

We know that accident victims in Connecticut have a lot of options when it comes to lawyers. If you have been hurt, some of these law firms may have reached out to you already. We approach personal injury law much differently than other attorneys. Lead trial attorney Jim Nugent will tell you we typically turn down nine out of 10 potential cases. The reason is simple: By limiting the number of cases we handle, we can pay close attention to each case. When we take on a client, we do not back down. We prefer to practice law on the offensive, and not be in a defensive posture, when it comes to your case.
At Nugent & Bryant, we guarantee our clients three things:

  • You will always be able to get in touch with your lawyer.
  • We will always answer your questions.
  • You will always be in control of your case.

Simply put, our clients come first. That is our promise. That is what makes us different.
