Iowa Brain Injury Lawyer
A brain injury changes lives — for both the person injured and for his or her family and friends. A person who has sustained brain damage may need round-the-clock medical and nursing care for the rest of his or her life, and a lot of understanding and help from family members and friends. The costs of neurological care, MRIs, CAT scans, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing services, physical and vocational rehabilitation are astronomical.
While great strides are being made in the treatment of brain injuries, some brain-damaged individuals may never recover fully following the initial diagnosis of post-concussion syndrome. A person who has suffered a traumatic brain injury may never be able to support family or work again. The financial effect of a brain injury is tremendous, but it can never equal the emotional and physical effect on the injured person and friends and family.
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to the negligent acts of another person, you have the right to pursue compensation to cover the medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, future medical treatment and rehabilitation, and other costs. The Berger Law Firm, P.C., in Urbandale (the West Des Moines area), can help. Iowa brain injury attorney Peter W. Berger obtained a $4.8 million verdict following a three-week trial in Polk County, Iowa, for an individual who suffered a head injury when her vehicle struck a train cable. Mr. Berger has handled many other cases of open and closed head injury that have resulted in significant compensation for clients.
