The Team You Need for the Results You Deserve Kansas City's Leading Medical Malpractice & Serious Personal Injury Firm

Kansas City Brain Injury Attorneys

Representing Those with Serious Injuries

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 his or her personality, functioning, and memory may only emerge sometime after the event. In contrast, some severe brain injuries can be immediately apparent.

Severe brain injuries can result from events such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Sports injuries

The injured person often displays reduced mental and physical function and the damage is usually visible on an MRI.

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.

The Consequences of Brain Injuries

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.

The Effects of 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

At Dempsey & Kingsland, we work closely with two experienced medical consultants to evaluate every case of obvious brain injury or head trauma. These medical professionals help build the case for future medical coverage and financial compensation by identifying specific impairments and the challenges they represent for the client. We also bring in neurologists, speech pathologists, vocational rehabilitation specialists, life care planners, and other professionals who can help us outline and justify our client’s long-term needs.

Choose Dempsey & Kingsland

Whatever the cause and severity of the brain damage, affected persons will almost always need some type of therapy, surgery, long-term care, durable medical equipment, special education services, or home care. If a brain injury was caused by the negligence of a trusted doctor or another medical professional, our attorneys may be able to secure fair compensation to help with the related expenses.

Contact our experienced Kansas City brain injury lawyers at (816) 484-3776 to discuss your case. The consultation is free and we charge nothing until we recover compensation for you.
