Have you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury? Brain injuries are always serious and often change the course of a person’s life and the life of their family members. If the injury stemmed from an accident or act of negligence, it is important to remember that you may be entitled to obtain compensation for your injuries.
At Roger Fincher Attorney at Law, our experienced Topeka brain injury attorney can help walk you through the legal process of filing a claim. We provide compassionate, personalized legal representation for victims of catastrophic injuries and their loved ones.
Recovering from a traumatic injury to the brain or head depends on how severe the injury you sustained is. As with all injuries, a medical professional can provide you with specifics as to your recovery time but generally speaking the prognosis for recovering from a less severe traumatic brain injury is usually better and the recovery time shorter than that of a more severe injury. While there are many variables that can affect this timeline, those who suffer a less severe or mild head injury typically recover within a couple months. Recovering from a more serious injury can take much longer. A more serious injury also raises the chances you will need some form of medical intervention as part of your recovery process such as speech therapy or physical therapy.

If it is determined that your injuries were the result of another person’s negligence, illegal behavior, or wrongdoing, you are entitled to file a personal injury claim.
