More commonly known as CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy is a progressing condition in the brain thought to be caused by repeated blows to the head. The resulting side effects of CTE can make for a challenging day-to-day life, but the serious injury attorneys at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP. may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve for your injury. If you or someone you love suffers from CTE, don’t wait any longer, contact us today and get the help you deserve in presenting your case.
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy was initially thought to be a condition exclusive to boxers. Medical professionals have since concluded that it can present itself in any individual that sustains multiple head injuries throughout their lifetime.
As a result, CTE is most commonly found amongst those who participate in contact sports such as football, fighting, and rugby. It is also present in an overwhelming number of military and combat veterans who have been exposed to nearby blasts or suffered several head injuries.
Less common causes of CTE can be multiple unrelated head injuries or head injuries commonly sustained by those who have epilepsy. Not everyone who participates in these activities will have CTE, so knowing what to look for can help you spot it before it gets worse.
Brain injuries are complex, and those who suffer from them typically exhibit a wide range of symptoms. CTE is no different, and while the potential symptoms are numerous, some of the most common ones are as follows.
Scientists are getting closer to diagnosing CTE in living patients, but there is currently no way to do so with 100% certainty. The current process for diagnosing CTE in living patients is to consider their symptoms and past activities. If you experience the symptoms and have a provable history of repetitive head trauma, then it is safe to assume that CTE is likely present to some degree.
Unfortunately, there is currently no definitive treatment for those who suffer from CTE. However, you can take steps to remediate some symptoms and sustain your quality of life. Some of the most common treatments to slow progression are speech therapy and cognitive exercises. Remedial treatment is better than none but the only way to prevent CTE altogether is by cutting out the activities that make you susceptible to head injuries.
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is a severe brain injury tied to repeated blows to the head. It can be incredibly challenging to hold another party responsible for developing CTE, but in most documented cases, it comes down to negligence, battery, or defective protective equipment.
Our leading serious injury attorneys in Columbus know exactly what to look for to tie your case to negligence on behalf of another party. If we find the significant evidence required in your case, we can seek the compensatory damages you deserve.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
