Handling Complex Traumatic Brain Injury Malpractice Claims

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury that you believe proper medical care could have prevented, make sure you have an experienced lawyer in your corner. Attorney Scott Sonntag has decades of experience in all types of brain injury claims related to malpractice, such as:

  • Undiagnosed brain tumors or failure to diagnose another anatomical abnormality, leading to a stroke and long-term or permanent loss of function
  • Failure to diagnose a subdural hematoma or other traumatic brain injury — often in an emergency room after an accident
  • Surgical errors or other mistakes that caused brain swelling or bleeding

Preparing Brain Injury Claims for a Favorable Verdict

In evaluating your situation, we focus on determining what went wrong and whether proper medical care would likely have prevented the brain injury or reduced its severity. Scott Sonntag has excellent relationships with many physicians qualified to testify on the standard of care as it applies to diagnosing a specific condition, treating a closed head injury or other medical issue.

Pursuing a Full Financial Recovery for Head Trauma and Brain Injury Claims

If we take your case, we will develop a clear, detailed picture of future needs and target a financial settlement that will make a meaningful difference. We know that money is never fair compensation for a severe impairment. However, a financial recovery can:

  • Pay for vocational rehabilitation, adaptive technology and other needs to help an injured person live the most fulfilling life possible
  • Replace income lost when a brain injury limits or eliminates a person's employment possibilities
  • Allow family members greater freedom and quality of life by paying for necessary care
