Using The Law To Advocate For Injury Survivors
Experiencing a catastrophic injury can leave you with physical pain, extensive medical bills and an uncertain future. You may also feel angry that the person or party who caused your accident has not experienced repercussions for their negligence. One way to hold them accountable and to recover compensation for your damages is to work with an attorney to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Rencher, our founding attorney, has more than 20 years of legal experience handling serious injury cases.

Traumatic Brain Injuries: What To Know
Car accidents can cause brain injuries that may impact the rest of your life. Victims often suffer from concussions, brain contusions, skull fractures, brain penetration and acquired brain injuries that result from other injuries from the accident, such as blood loss and neck injuries. The most severe brain injury victims can suffer from a car accident is a traumatic brain injury.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs in the brain when the skull experiences a major impact. Some of their symptoms include:
- Memory problems
- Personality changes
- Blurred vision
TBIs can have devastating effects on victims, as they are one of the most severe categories of injury. Depending on how severe your injury is, symptoms can range from short-term issues to chronic health conditions or even fatalities.
For more severe TBIs, victims can experience similar symptoms to a mild TBI but intensified, plus comas, weakness in fingers and toes, loss of coordination and seizures. Depending on the severity of your accident, you may need to receive treatment and rehabilitation for the rest of your life.
Experience Handling Traumatic Incidents
To diagnose a TBI, a victim will undergo medical testing such as CT scans, MRIs and other diagnostic tests administered by a medical professional. The visual scans and the medical documentation are then utilized as evidence in court or negotiations to prove the injury’s validity.
As a former aircraft firefighter/emergency medical technician in the military, Mr. Rencher has worked with accident survivors firsthand. He understands how traumatic a severe injury can be for survivors and their loved ones. Because he used to work as a trauma scribe, he knows how to describe trauma accurately so insurance representatives, jurors and judges understand the extent of the pain you endured. Whether you sustained a TBI from a car accident or from tripping and falling, he offers the legal acumen and compassion that you need throughout your recovery process.
