Brain Injury Symptoms
No two brain injuries are the same. Symptoms can lesson or worsen over time; certain traumatic brain injury (TBI) characteristic symptoms may take time to fully develop after an accident, making diagnosis difficult. But detecting symptoms sooner than later is crucial for recovery.
The Killino Firm can help you recover compensation to cover the medical and treatment costs of your injuries. We are committed to fighting aggressively on behalf of injured victims and families, and strive to make sure our clients recover enough compensation to pay for the highest-quality brain injury treatments possible.
