Brain And Spinal Cord Injuries
Attorney Shannon Sagan was involved in a serious rollover automobile accident that put him in the hospital ICU department and forced him to take 6 months off of school to heal from his head injury. So he understands what brain injury victims are going through medically and physically. That experience has given him an advantage as a brain and spinal injury lawyer because he understands the economic, psychological, and legal impacts these traumatic injuries can cause. Attorney Shannon J. Sagan has the skills and experience necessary to fight for full and fair compensation for those who have sustained such injuries and help to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation cost, lost wages, supplies and equipment, and compensation for pain and suffering.

Common Causes of Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
A person could suffer brain or spinal cord injury for several reasons, although the most common include a:
- Car or truck accident
- Motorcycle or other vehicle accident
- Slip-and-fall accident
- Violent act
- Sports injury
- Work accident
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), motor vehicle accidents and catastrophic falls cause the most spinal cord injuries of any other type of spinal injury cause.
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control:
- 1.5 million Americans each year sustain a brain injury
- Of those, 50,000 die and over 2.5 million are treated in hospitals
- Many of these victims are children, who are at higher risk
- Approximately 500,000 children suffer serious brain injuries as a result of accidents each year
Depending on how your brain or spinal cord injury happened, you may have legal recourse for your injuries. For example, if your injuries happened in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence, you could pursue a personal injury case against that person.
You may seek economic damages for the monetary value associated with your losses, including medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation. You may also seek non-economic damages for an estimated value for pain, distress, and disfigurement.
A skilled brain and spinal cord injury attorney in our law firm can help you determine the best course of action to pursue compensation for your injuries after an accident.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can include mild TBI or concussion, moderate TBI, or severe TBI. TBI can permanently affect anyone’s ability to process new information or maintain their previous quality of life. Children who suffer a TBI are at high risk of delayed brain development, behavioral changes, and difficulties in learning.
Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are often permanent, always life-altering, and undoubtedly have major effects on the lives of the victims as well as their families. These types of injuries can occur through the fault of another and can occur through surgical error, an automobile or motorcycle accident, construction site accidents, defective products, or a machinery malfunction.
