Brain Injury

Brain injuries can easily lead to a lifetime of mental and physical challenges. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when your head is struck or jolted violently, causing your brain to suffer traumatic stress. These types of injuries are complex and may exhibit a wide range of symptoms and disabilities. Traumatic brain injuries can lead to bleeding, bruising of the brain, torn tissues, brain dysfunction and long-term complications that can lead to death. That is why it is crucial to seek compensation to face the many challenges this injury can cause.

Symptoms of traumatic brain injury can be difficult to diagnose because they may not immediately manifest and they often mimic the symptoms of other ailments. Some of the symptoms of TBI include:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Behavioral changes
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Sleep disturbances

If you exhibit any of the symptoms listed above, it’s important to see a doctor right away. If you suffered a traumatic brain injury because of someone else’s recklessness, carelessness or negligence, you can pursue compensation. TBI can have serious, long-lasting consequences that require costly medical treatment and can significantly diminish your quality of life.

Burn Injury

Burn injuries are categorized based on their level of severity. Although first and second degree burns are quite serious and painful at the moment of injury, they do not usually cause any lifelong damage or debilitation. You should always take these burns seriously and get them treated as quickly as possible, but they don’t often pose a long-term risk to your health and ability to work.

However, third-degree burns are very serious, and they almost always result in long-term damage. Third-degree burns require extensive medical care, which can include:

  • Multiple surgeries
  • Skin grafts
  • Medication
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Additionally, the scarring and disfigurement that accompanies these severe burns can cause incredible emotional suffering and make it impossible to earn a living. Attorney Jim Miron knows how devastating these injuries can be for burn victims and their families. He is committed to holding the responsible parties accountable and guiding you through every step of your legal process with compassion and diligence.

Back and Neck Injury

They comprise a sophisticated network of soft tissue, muscles, nerves, cartilage and vertebrae. Back and neck injuries vary in severity, and can include any of the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Compression fractures
  • Pinched nerves
  • Broken vertebrae
  • Damaged larynx or trachea
  • Ruptured, herniated or slipped disc
  • Spinal cord injury

Neck and back injuries typically require surgery, medications and physical therapy. The symptoms can prohibit your ability to perform daily activities. In addition to extensive medical bills and lost wages, the combination of depression, anxiety and anger can significantly diminish your quality of life.

Attorney Jim Miron has helped victims of back and neck injuries for 25 years, and knows how these injuries can affect every aspect of your life. He is committed to helping you obtain the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury can cause severe, long-term disability. Spinal cord injuries are classified as either complete or partial. Complete spinal cord injuries cause the total loss of motor function and the ability to feel below the area of the injury. In complete spinal cord injuries, the recovery of sensation or motor function is not expected. Partial spinal cord injuries occur when some motor function and sensation below the area of the injury are retained.

The treatments performed for spinal cord injuries depend on the severity and location of the injury. Unfortunately, modern medicine has not discovered a way to restore full function to victims of severe spinal cord injuries. However, there are methods of treatment that can minimize the damage, such as:

  • Surgery
  • Immobilization (traction)
  • Medications
  • Rehabilitation
  • Assistive devices

Losing the ability to walk or move your limbs can be one of the most terrifying and difficult hardships an injury victim can face. Even partial paralysis can be an incredible burden for patients trying to rebuild their lives after an accident. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury, attorney Jim Miron is committed to fighting aggressively for the maximum compensation to which you are entitled, to both cover your immediate needs your needs and well-being in the future.

Premises Liability

Premises liability involves the overall care and maintenance of a person’s property or business. Dangerous conditions that may contribute to an injury can include:

  • Improperly designed stairs or ramps
  • Slips, trips and falls from wet or icy conditions
  • Lack of proper lighting
  • Lack of adequate handrails
  • Lack of warnings of a dangerous condition
  • Negligent security

If you’ve been hurt in a parking lot, store, shopping center or residential home, Jim Miron wants to hear your story. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
