Kansas City Brain Injury Attorneys

Representing Those with Serious Injuries

According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), one of the leading causes of death and disability in children and young adults in the U.S. is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). An estimated 1.5 million people suffer from a TBI every year. Each year, an estimated:

  • 230,000 go to the hospital with a TBI and survive
  • 50,000 people die
  • 80,000 - 90,000 suffer long-term disability

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our Kansas City medical malpractice lawyers understand that brain injuries are not always obvious. The injured person may seem normal and the changes in their personality, functioning, and memory may only emerge sometime after the event. The injured person often displays reduced mental and physical function and the damage is usually visible on an MRI. In contrast, some severe brain injuries can be immediately apparent.

    If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to a medical professional’s negligence, seek compensation with the help of Dempsey & Kingsland. We are passionate about helping injured clients fight for justice.

    What Are The Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

    A traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects each individual differently. Sometimes, it even takes some time before the full extent of a brain injury reveals itself.

    Depending on the force of impact and which parts of the brain were affected, a TBI may manifest as:

    • Loss of motor function
    • Impaired vision
    • Chronic headaches or ringing in the ears
    • Memory loss or inability to concentrate
    • Dizziness and balance problems
    • Speech problems
    • Outbursts, mood swings, depression or personality change
    • Profound cognitive damage or vegetative state

    The Long Term Effects of a Brain Injury

    Whether temporary or permanent, brain injuries can lead to intellectual disabilities, loss of bodily functioning, personality changes, memory loss, and sensory deprivation. Such changes in the brain can cause the victim to require lifetime care, become unable to hold a job, or lose the ability to form relationships. They may be paralyzed, unable to walk or move. They may also become severely depressed to the point where daily tasks become impossible.

    If you or a family member has been involved in an accident that may have caused a brain injury, you need an attorney with the resources to help you recover compensation for your injury and its consequences. At Dempsey & Kingsland, we have an extensive national network of medical specialists who help us evaluate brain injury cases. We look forward to discussing your case during a free consultation.
