  Brain Injury



          One of the least understood and complex, and catastrophic, physical injuries that a person can suffer is to one’s brain, generally referred to as TBI, for “traumatic brain injury.”  Few law firms have been able to invest the necessary resources to learn to comprehend TBI, let alone to be able to articulate its complexities in language that a jury can understand.

          Some of the manifestations of TBI are so subtle that they can be made to seem insignificant by the defense.  Learning to explain the truly horrific consequences of TBI’s otherwise subtle signs is therefore an art mastered only by a select few lawyers.

          At the Gast Law Firm, we tackled that problem so effectively that, in May, 2002, a transportation firm based on the East Coast entered into one of the largest-ever settlements for a single injured Plaintiff in Nebraska, $4,125,000, in order to avoid a trial with us in a TBI case.  In order to do that, we not only had to master the medical and psychological literature, we also had to work in extremely closely and “hands-on” with our client and his care-givers, so that—at trial—our jurors would truly know, and feel, what our client was experiencing, and would experience for the rest of his life.

          As we say to each other, “people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”  At the Gast Law Firm, we care!  And our results prove it.

          William Gast has held the Martindale-Hubbell "AV" Rating (the highest rating for ethical standards and legal ability) since 1988, and the firm is listed in the Best's Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys.  We are top-notch lawyers with expertise in cases involving catastrophic brain injury.
