spinal cord & brain injury
The cause of a spinal cord or brain injury is usually a severe trauma, such as a car or truck collision, gunshot or fall.
Spinal cord injury (SCI) can result in a loss of function such as mobility or feeling. The spinal cord does not have to be severed in order for a loss of functioning to occur. SCI is very specific and distinct from back injuries, such as ruptured disks, spinal stenosis or pinched nerves.
The effects of a brain injury are more wide-ranging and can include anything from personality changes and significant memory loss to dizziness and chronic headaches, disorientation and forgetfulness, inability to sleep and chronic depression. Categories of brain injury include concussion, brain contusion, bleeding in the brain and a fractured skull.
A past president of the Brain Injury Association of Connecticut, Mike Stratton and his partners are extremely experienced in managing complex spinal cord and brain injury cases and obtained the highest paid spinal cord settlement in Connecticut of its time—$23 million.
