Head and Neck Injuries
Head and Neck Injuries in Tennessee
You may walk away from a car accident with only slight dizziness or a headache. Or a slip and fall on a wet grocery store floor may leave you with a minor ache in the neck. But later in the day — or even a few days later — these minor symptoms become severe. Delayed onset injuries can quickly become debilitating conditions. That is why it is so important to seek immediate medical attention when an accident results in any degree of injury.
I am Knoxville head and neck injury lawyer Kevin W. Shepherd. When you suffer injuries like these in an accident caused by the negligent or wrongful acts of others, I can help you pursue the compensation you need to pay the costs of long-term treatment and related expenses. I handle the details so you can focus on healing.
How head and neck injury lawyers pursue the compensation you deserve
According to WebMD, a typical whiplash injury takes up to three months to heal, and severe cases may not improve for six to twelve months. Head injuries affecting the brain can potentially have a permanent effect on bodily functions including speech, thought and movement. In Alcoa or elsewhere in Tennessee, your ability to walk away from an accident adds challenges to proving the severity of your injuries. Experienced head and neck injury lawyers combat these challenges by enlisting the aid of medical professionals to provide diagnostic evidence of your injuries, develop a prognosis for the degree and length of anticipated treatment and recovery, and estimate all associated costs.
Medical costs represent only part of your losses. With more than two decades of experience as a neck and head injury attorney, I can help you recover all expenses related to your injuries, including the following:
- Lost time from work
- Inability to continue working due to disability
- Cost of hiring someone to care for you, your family and your home as long as you need assistance
- Long-term effects of permanent scarring
- Pain and suffering caused by your condition
And under certain circumstances, such as when your injuries result from willful acts, an injury attorney can potentially pursue punitive damages on your behalf.
