Dedicated Brain Injury Lawyer Protecting Portland Clients
Brain damage is one of the most tragic and least understood types of personal injury. Sarah Nelson, P.C. is committed to helping clients who have suffered brain damage receive compensation for their often life-altering condition.
A Variety of Causes & Effects
Brain injuries most often result from closed head trauma, but many accidents can also involve open head wounds. From car accidents to serious falls, bike accidents to accidents in stores, virtually any type of accident that results in a blow to the head can cause serious head trauma and/or brain injury.
When you have suffered head trauma, the resulting brain injury can range from a run-of-the-mill concussion to something far more serious, including comas and seizures.
A Blow to the Head Can be Hard to Diagnose
Even experienced physicians often have a hard time diagnosing brain injuries. Complicating matters further is the fact that brain injuries generally appear days, weeks or even months after the victim’s condition has “stabilized.” A forgetful victim may not even be able to adequately convey all of their symptoms to their treating physicians.
If you or a loved one is suffering from any of the following symptoms, seek help immediately:
- Mismatched and non-responsive pupils
- Loss of consciousness
- Concentration problems
- Seizures or ticks
When in Doubt, Check it Out
After you or your loved one has stabilized, contact an experienced Portland brain injury lawyer to help you better explore your options for recovering compensation. Having represented Multnomah County clients since 2010, attorney Sarah Nelson knows what it takes to secure the future you deserve.
