Raleigh Head and Brain Injury Attorneys

The brain is a beautiful, capable, and complicated organ...when it works. But when it's been damaged—say by a tractor-trailer wreck, a malfunctioning gas tank explosion, or something equally catastrophic—life as you know it may well come crashing to an end.

Suffering a traumatic brain injury can cause a major life transformation. Even a partial loss of perception and memory can separate loved ones, force you to resign from your chosen livelihood, and worse. Medical bills and doctor's visits suddenly loom large—and take over life as you know it. Worst of all, unlike a broken bone, a brain injury often never fully heals. 

While you and your family struggle with these changes, insurance companies and other adverse parties may try to do everything in their power to settle your claim quickly, cheaply, and without regard for your suffering. You need a lawyer who understands the complexities of your medical condition—and is prepared to bring the full force of the law onto any negligent party. 

The attorneys at Thorp Law are skilled at discovering and preserving evidence, hiring the right medical experts, and helping the jury understand the context of your damages to pursue a just award. We will investigate all avenues of negligence and find all available sources of liability insurance. We then position your case to seek the full measure of compensation you are entitled to, so that you can begin to put the pieces of your life together again. 

Our relentless preparation and exceptional track record allow us to negotiate from a position of strength. When the defendants realize how serious we are, we’ll settle for what you deserve. If not, we will present your story in the kind of layman’s terms that every jury can understand, relate to, and act on.
