Legal Advocacy for Traumatic Brain Injury
Greenville, South Carolina, Workplace Injury and Auto Accident Lawyers
A serious brain injury can have a profound impact on the victim but also on the victim's family. At Kathryn Williams, P.A., we provide compassionate counsel and effective representation at this emotionally trying time. Our lawyers are committed to securing financial security and improving the quality of life as much as possible.
Often, we consult with life care plan experts to help us determine the amount of compensation it will take to care for the future medical needs of a seriously injured and permanently disabled client. We may also consult an expert economist to determine the economic impact of losing a wage earner over their work life expectancy. There are several elements that must be considered to properly evaluate the past and future economic loss that results from a serious injury.

Brain Injury / Closed Head Injury
Many victims are first diagnosed as having a concussion or "closed head injury."
Sometimes the family is told that the victim will make a full recovery after short-term symptoms like headaches and blurred vision go away. A traumatic brain injury (TBI), however, is lasting or permanent damage to the delicate tissues of the brain. Different people experience different effects:
- Memory loss or inability to concentrate
- Impaired motor skills or partial paralysis
- Slurred speech or inability to speak
- Blurred vision or blindness
- Loss of sensation
- Personality change or depression
Some symptoms may not be present immediately after an accident. Other symptoms may come and go. Our lawyers work closely with the family and the medical professionals to identify the signs and symptoms of a brain injury. We can often arrange for brain scans or for further medical testing to assist our clients in getting an accurate diagnosis, proper medical treatment and rehabilitation therapy.
Kathryn Williams, P.A., works with physicians, physical therapists, vocational rehab specialists, and other experts to determine the long-term medical and financial needs. We consult with a life care planning specialist to detail the monetary damages required to compensate for a lifetime of medical care and reduced earnings. In a personal injury lawsuit, we also seek appropriate damages for reduced quality of life.
Work-Related Brain Injury
While most injuries are capped under South Carolina's Workers' Compensation system, brain injury victims can receive lifetime benefits (medical care and weekly benefits). Kathryn Williams , who offers 24 years of focused experience in workplace injury law, works to ensure that victims get full Workers' Comp disability benefits. As experienced trial attorneys, we can also aggressively pursue any third-party liability claims.
