Science teaches us that even one concussion can lead to long-term structural damage to the brain and long-term negative health effects. As lawyers focused on brain injury, Holzer Edwards, Chtd. has long been aware that concussions can lead to long-term problems. And the knowledge that repetitive concussions can cause long-term structural problems has become relatively common knowledge.

As science comes to a better understanding of the impacts of concussion and brain injury, we as Idaho brain injury attorneys do a better job of making sure clients with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are properly compensated for their losses.

While head and brain injuries can involve catastrophic and visible injuries often "invisible" injuries to occur when the brain strikes the inside of the skull twice — once upon initial impact and again upon the rebound from the impact. Essentially, your brain sloshes around inside your skull and bounces off the boney parts. This injures the soft cells in the brain itself.

This phenomenon, called a coup /contra coup injury, can result in injuries and symptoms that can take months to develop, and include:

  • Memory loss
  • Loss of taste, smell or vision
  • Inability to focus
  • Comprehension skills
  • Emotional instability or depression
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of balance
  • Sleeplessness

Following a coup/contra coup injury, accident victims often experience problems reading, find that they can't remember simple appointments, experience headaches and may experience personality changes.

We have the experience, legal skill level and commitment to handle the most serious injury cases. Our brain injury legal services include:

  • Working with a network of tested medical experts
  • Hiring expert witnesses, including treating physicians
  • Measuring economic losses
  • Working with vocational experts, physical therapists, speech therapists and other experts
