Our Injury Attorneys Are Experienced in Litigating Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuits in Ohio
In recent years, Mr. Miller, of Brian G. Miller Co., L.P.A., obtained the highest verdict in the history of Union County, OH ($34,317,636.00).
The case at issue, involving Mr. Miller’s client, Lisa M. Jones, was a significant one. Ms. Jones, a mother to a 3-year-old boy, struck a utility pole near Marion, which downed a power line and left her trapped in her SUV with her son inside. While Jones’s life hung in the balance, medical emergency staff arrived quickly at the accident scene but had to wait nearly an hour for an Ohio Edison employee to arrive and clear the power line. As a result, this delay had irreversible consequences to Ms. Jones’ health, leaving her with a permanent brain injury.
Ohio Edison and its affiliate company, FirstEnergy Service Co., argued that Jones’s injuries were due to other factors including her own conduct and subpar medical care provided at The Ohio State University trauma department.
After receiving the evidence and witness testimony, the jury determined that primary fault was with the electric companies and awarded $13.3 million to Ms. Jones for the financial losses she had or will experience over her lifetime, $20 million to Ms. Jones in noneconomic losses, and $1 million to benefit Ms. Jones’ son.

Brain Injuries Can Be Long-Lasting and Should Be Compensated Appropriately
Brain injuries can occur due to any number of events, including car and truck accidents, serious falls, and even medical negligence. Regardless of the cause of the injury, a traumatic brain injury can be life-altering and extremely serious. A TBI is often a medical emergency requiring immediate attention and surgery. Other times, a series of diagnostic tests need to be performed to accurately diagnose, pinpoint and treat a TBI. Beyond emergency treatment and acute/intensive care, persons living with a brain injury might require months of rehabilitation and therapy, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, vocational rehabilitation, psychological counseling, and cognitive and emotional support. Some people find their mobility and cognitive skills permanently impaired, requiring a lifetime of skilled care or daily living support.

Seek Medical Attention After Any Head Injury or Traumatic Accident
It is a good idea to visit a doctor after just about any motor vehicle accident, even if you do not think you were seriously hurt. Some injuries are not immediately apparent or do not manifest until days after the accident. This is especially true with brain injuries, where a timely and accurate diagnosis is essential to treating the injury. It is advisable to have a doctor evaluate you any time you get a serious knock to the head in a motor vehicle accident, fall or other incident. Especially if you experience any of the following symptoms after hitting your head, it is recommended that you see a doctor as soon as possible, and contact our firm to discuss the potential of filing a traumatic brain injury lawsuit in Ohio:
