Charlotte Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
Brain injuries can affect every aspect of a person’s life. While traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of death, even those who survive can sustain varying degrees of permanent impairment. Memory, cognition, control over body functions, mood, personality, and reasoning skills are among the essential functions a brain injury can affect. Victims often cannot work and need costly medical treatment, all of which should be covered by those who caused the harm.
When a brain injury could have been avoided but occurs because of negligence or wrongdoing, a brain injury attorney at Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC can provide representation to the victims or their family members. Our attorneys have decades of collective experience representing clients in all types of brain injury cases and we have helped clients in Charlotte and surrounding areas get the money they need to secure the best rehabilitation and care possible.
Proving Responsibility for Brain Injuries
Brain injury victims can pursue a case for compensation for both economic and non-financial loss if they can prove negligence, wrongdoing, or a failure to live up to a legal obligation, was the cause of the brain damage. The most common causes of brain injuries include:
- Car, bike, and pedestrian crashes. Vehicle manufacturers or agencies vested with responsibility for road design could also be held accountable in addition to the driver.
- Truck accidents.
- Slip and falls, which can occur at work, on public or private property, or in a nursing home.
- Sports accidents, which could lead to liability on the part of schools, coaches, and athletic organizations if proper equipment wasn’t used, if there was negligence in supervision, or if appropriate concussion protocols were not followed.
- Incidents involving product defects
- Medical mistakes, which cause damage to the brain due to deprivation of oxygen.
Determining who is at fault is the first step in getting compensation for brain injuries. At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, our legal team offers consultations to brain injury victims in Charlotte and surrounding areas to determine if a claim can be pursued and who could be held accountable.
About Compensation for Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are invasive and they affect every part of a person’s life. A victim may need round-the-clock medical or nursing care to assist with routine tasks.
Months of rehabilitation to relearn skills may become necessary after a brain injury. Hospital bills can total in the millions, and victims may be prevented from working as they recover or may forever have their work abilities and earning potential reduced.
Victims of brain injuries need to be fully compensated for economic losses like lost wages and medical expenses, as well as for non-financial damages like pain, decreased quality of life, and emotional distress. Not only should victims get compensation for costs incurred at the time their case arises, but they should also be provided with payments for ongoing future expenditures. Medical advances and new adaptive devices may improve the lives of brain injury victims, and there should be enough money available for those who have been hurt to get the best care.
