Distasio Law Firm’s Case Results

In our view, clients should not hire a law firm unless that firm has proven results. Our team has a record of financial recoveries, including a verdict of more than $7 million for a client who suffered a head injury. That client dove from a boat and struck their head, and we proved that liable parties should have done more to prevent head and spinal injuries.

Our firm has also secured several recoveries in excess of $1 million. Our team determines the cost of a client’s losses then fights for the full financial recovery. We will do the same for you.

We Understand the Challenges That Head Trauma Poses

Head trauma or a head injury is defined as any injury that causes damage to a person’s head, scalp, or brain. Head injuries may be categorized as open or closed. An open head injury occurs when a person is hit by an object that penetrates the scalp, skull, or brain. A closed injury is when a person is struck in the head, but the object doesn’t penetrate through.

When a person sustains head trauma, they may suffer a concussion (a common traumatic brain injury) or a contusion (bruise located on the surface of the brain). Both a concussion and a contusion can be extremely severe and lead to life-threatening side effects for the victim if not immediately diagnosed and treated.

Head Trauma Side Effects

People who sustain head trauma may develop numerous mental, physical, and emotional side effects. These side effects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Vomiting
  • Bleeding
  • Brain swelling
  • Brain bleeding
  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Chronic headaches
  • Seizure
  • Pupil dilation
  • Loss of coordination
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion
  • Loss of memory
