Causes of Brain Injury

There are few injuries as debilitating and expensive to care for as brain injuries. Even worse, many brain injuries do not manifest immediate symptoms; rather, they reveal themselves over time, often after irreparable damage has taken place. Depending on the severity of the injury, brain injury victims can face years, decades, or even a lifetime of compromised motor, function, and cognitive skills, with the worst cases resulting in coma or death. Tragically, as our Oklahoma City personal injury lawyers can attest, too many brain injuries are the result of accidents and could have been avoided if not for the negligent or deliberately wrongful actions of another party.

Fungus Found in Sealed Steroid Vials Causing Nationwide Meningitis Outbreak

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has confirmed more than 250 reported cases of meningitis, 29 deaths, and potentially thousands of people injected with the fungus-contaminated steroids in sixteen states.
