Helping Others – Stray Rescue

Reviewing Brain Injury

Motor Vehicle Collisions and Traumatic Brain Injuries

Motor vehicle collisions were the third leading cause of traumatic brain injury also commonly called concussion or post-concussion syndrome.  This is according to the Centers for Disease Control  See., https://www.cdc.gov/traumaticbraininjury/get_the_facts.html  Typical symptoms can include: headache, nausea, light/noise sensitivity, word finding problems, fatigue, problems concentrating, memory disturbances, and emotional problems, to name a few.

There are many causes of brain injury including car crashes, trucking collisions, falls, and blows to the head in workers’ compensation cases.  Symptoms can be worse if you have suffered prior head injuries in the past.  I have been a member of the Brain Injury Association for 15 years and know the good work this organization does in supporting and advocating for those suffering brain injury.  If you, or someone you know has suffered a brain injury, hire a lawyer who knows and has experience fighting for a full and fair recovery.

At Wolfgram & Associates we know how to help those suffering what might appear to those who don’t know you to be an invisible injury.  We have a record of handling brain injury cases in St. Louis, St. Charles, Perry County, St. Genevieve County, Madison County, Jackson County, Kansas City, and many other counties in Missouri, Illinois and Iowa.

Profits Over People

There is no “crisis” driving up the cost of health care or forcing good doctors out of the practice.  That is the conclusion of Steve Cohen in his March 2015 article, “On Tort Reform, It’s Time to Declare Victory and Withdraw” published in Forbes, one of the most conservative pro-business publications in the country.

There are no lottery winners in malpractice lawsuits, only victims.  It is outrageous to suggest that pain and suffering should be capped like it is in Missouri at $250,000. There is no end to a patient’s pain, suffering and emotional distress to justify a cap.  Suffering patients would gladly pay that sum for their suffering to end.

This article is the first honest discussion to show that insurance companies have created a panic to get doctors to pay more insurance and to pass laws that hurt us all by trading the rights of patients for insurance company profits.  What a perfect storm, insurance companies gouge doctors for higher premiums then give money to politicians and run ads supporting “tort reform” in an effort to keep verdicts down and more money in the insurance company bank account.  The article show the profits aren’t even going to shareholders but rather to large salaries and bonuses for insurance company executives.

Do not stomp on patient’s rights.  The stronger the rights of patients, the safer the medicine will be.  What goes on behind the curtain in hospitals around the country needs to be exposed in our open courts.

If you, or someone you know has been injured because of or due to mistakes made by the hospital or doctor, call Wolfgram Law to champion the rights of patients who have suffered serious malpractice injuries.
