Traumatic Brain Injury Accident Lawsuits & Settlements in Ohio
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.7 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury each year.
Traumatic brain injury, head injuries, and brain damage can cause a wide range of functional changes affecting thinking, sensation, language and emotions. It doesn’t matter whether the initial injury to the brain was mild, moderate or severe, any brain injury can result in serious conditions like epilepsy or seizure disorders. The repercussions can affect all aspects of life from school to social situations to work. Because traumatic brain injuries are serious and may last a lifetime, it is important to contact an attorney who concentrates his/her practice in representing persons who suffer from brain injuries so that your legal rights are fully protected.
Hiring an attorney who understands brain injuries on a personal level
On August 9, 2010, Attorney Chuck Boyk's world was turned upside down when he received word that his son, Josh, had fallen from a 10-foot high dive and had hit his head on the concrete pool deck below. What followed were two brain surgeries, a meningitis complication, and weeks in intensive care. Chuck later learned that the driving board did not comply with Ohio code and that Josh's fall should have never happened.
That is why he wrote the book, I've Stood in Your Shoes; it's a personal account of how the Boyk family became a client of the firm and had the other attorneys in the office represent him, his wife, and Josh in a lawsuit. Chuck went through the ups and downs of the highly-personal litigation, some days feeling good about the case, and on other days questioning everything. After two long years, Chuck and his family were finally able to get justice.
"What I gained throughout this process was a genuine understanding of the difficult time that my clients are going through when they come to me for help," Chuck said. "I understand the daily struggles, the frustration, and the raw emotion that comes along with a personal injury claim. I wanted to write a book to help my clients understand that I have felt what they are feeling.
Chuck believes that this is why his firm is different and why he has a unique advantage to helping his clients: he has stood in their shoes.
