Brain Injuries

Few injuries have a more devastating effect on the family members of an accident victim than a brain injury. However, many families, under pressure from an insurance company or even from their lawyer to accept a settlement, may not even know that their family member has suffered a life-altering injury. At the North Carolina law firm of Powers Landreth, our lawyers will never pressure you into accepting a settlement that is not in your best interests.

There are many common misinterpretations about brain injuries:

  • “My family member doesn’t look injured.” Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur even when there is no outward sign of injury. These types of brain injuries are often called “closed head injuries.”
  • “My family member seemed fine after the accident. How could he or she have a brain injury?” The symptoms of a brain injury may not appear for days or even weeks after the accident. You may notice that your loved one has become forgetful, that he or she easily becomes irritated, or that the tasks involving short-term memory or directions are more challenging. These are all signs of traumatic brain injury.
  • “My family member will get better with time.” Unfortunately, brain damage can be permanent. However, with therapy and rehabilitation, people and their families can learn ways to cope with a brain injury.

If your loved one has suffered a brain injury, no amount of financial compensation can make up for what your family has lost. However, fair compensation can provide rehabilitation and other services to help your family cope. Our lawyers will guide you and your family member through the complex legal, medical and financial issues you will face.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
My daughter had a second DUI and when it all seemed hopeless, Bill was able to get the charges dropped. This is a man who is extremely knowledgeable, yet still keeps his integrity which was impressive to me. He handles himself with dignity. If you hire him, you will have the best of the best, along with his expansive intellect and wisdom about the law. Please don’t feel hopeless, when you can hire such a great attorney to be on your side.

Bill Powers’ staff has handled several traffic citations for me over the years, and they exceeded my expectations each and every time. Would highly recommend anyone faced with a traffic citation or court case contact his office and they will handle it from there. M.C.

I utilized Bill Powers and his firm after my DUI infraction in December 2011. During my initial consultation he immediately made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the law and his confidence in moving forward. Not to mention a great personality. He filled me in on all the ramifications and the process as a whole. I am a realist, and did not expect miracles. But Bill is stickler for procedure and that is what you need in a crises such as this. It took a good year, and the results were more than I could ever anticipate or hope for. I would have paid more had I known the results ahead of time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, trust me, he is your go to lawyer. J SJ
