I throughly enjoyed working with Erik and the Child & Jackson firm. I was unfortunate enough to be in an automobile accident, him and his team really took care of me and helped me win my case. I am satisfied with all the help and the outcome of the lawsuit. I would definitely work with Child & Jackson if the time comes again. Thank you for everything.

Child & Jackson came highly recommended and did a great job. Unfortunately, after my case settled for coverage maximum, I was in need of their services again. I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Very caring people.

I was referred to Child & Jackson from a family/friend who had a good experience with them. To my surprise, I actually got to meet and speak with Mr. Child, who was so down to earth (we all know how attorneys can be intimidating). Mr. Child assured me he and his team will take care of me and they kept their words.

What Types of Accidents Can Cause a Brain Injury?

Types of accidents that can result in brain injuries include:

Car Crashes

Car accidents are a major contributor to brain injuries. Speeding, reckless driving, distracted driving, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, can lead to auto accidents that can result in severe injuries, such as TBIs.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents caused by wet floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, loose carpets, and cluttered walkways can result in head injuries.

Workplace Accidents

Failure to provide proper safety equipment, inadequate training, lack of fall protection, or failure to address hazardous conditions, can result in brain injuries.

Medical Malpractice

Errors such as surgical mistakes, anesthesia errors, birth injuries, misdiagnosis, and delays in treatment, can result in brain injuries.

Defective Products

Defective products such as motor vehicle components and children’s toys, can malfunction and cause head injuries.

Who Can Be Held Liable?

In cases of motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall incidents, or other types of personal injury incidents, negligent individuals may be held responsible. 

Employers

If a brain injury occurs on the job due to unsafe conditions, lack of training, or failure to provide proper safety equipment, the employer may be held liable for damages.

Healthcare Providers

Healthcare facilities and medical professionals may be held liable for brain injuries resulting from medical malpractice.

Manufacturers

  • Emergency care and transport
