We Have The Skill Set To Handle Complex Matters

Workers' compensation lawyer John A. Christiansen is admitted to the bar in both Missouri and Kansas. He has successfully represented a diverse range of clients affected by all types of brain injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) TBI is the most catastrophic kind of brain injury. It can result in brain stem trauma, torn nerve tissue, bruised brain tissue or edema .
  • Concussion — A concussion occurs when a head injury results in short-term loss of consciousness, but little lasting impairment, if any.
  • Penetrating head injury When an object penetrates the skull and makes contact with the brain, serious brain injuries can result.
  • Closed head injury — When a person's head hits an object such as a wall or steering wheel, he or she may suffer a serious closed head injury.
  • Anoxic brain injury — Sometimes caused by drowning or strangulation, anoxic brain injury occurs when the brain is deprived of adequate oxygen.

The symptoms of these injuries can range in severity from headaches and short-term confusion to lasting brain damage. If you have suffered a brain injury in the course of your employment, a qualified workers' compensation attorney can help you pursue the appropriate medical care and understand the full extent of your injury — then help you seek the appropriate benefits to which you are entitled by law.
