Brain Injury Representation

A brain injury is a life-altering event from which victims may never fully recover. Unlike other bodily tissues, the brain lacks the ability to regenerate its cells. Once cells are damaged or connections severed, the functions they perform are irretrievably lost unless the brain can adapt.

Individuals may face permanent challenges with movement, senses, emotions, cognitive abilities, or even personality changes. If negligence by an individual or business entity caused your accident resulting in a brain injury, our team of Los Angeles brain injury lawyers is here to guide you through your injury claim.

Understanding Brain Injury:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.4 million Americans sustain some form of traumatic brain injury annually, with approximately 235,000 requiring hospitalization and an additional 50,000 resulting in fatalities. While falls and car accidents are the most common causes of brain injuries, they can also arise from any blow to the head, including sports injuries and gunshot wounds. Thousands more experience non-traumatic brain injuries due to disease, stroke, or oxygen deprivation, sometimes stemming from medical malpractice. Roughly 5.3 million people in the United States—two percent of our population—require permanent, daily assistance with everyday tasks due to brain injuries.

What Compensation Can I Recover for a TBI?

 

While no amount of money can fully compensate for the devastation of a traumatic brain injury, a successful settlement or jury verdict could provide some financial stability and peace of mind for you and your family. An award from an insurance company may cover both economic (special) and non-economic (general) damages, including medical bills, disability costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, and punitive damages if applicable. The specific financial damages recoverable in your brain injury case will depend on the losses incurred and the circumstances of the injury.

 

Types of Accidents Most Likely to Cause a Serious Head or Brain Injury:

  • Motor vehicle accidents

  • Falls from significant heights

  • Bicycle accidents without helmets

Typical Symptoms of a Serious Brain Injury:

  • Loss of consciousness

  • Persistent headaches

  • Memory problems

  • Concentration difficulties

  • Dizziness or loss of balance

  • Vision problems

  • Emotional struggles

For brain injury victims and their families, every aspect of life is profoundly affected. Victims facing significant physical or mental challenges may need to adjust or abandon future plans, forfeit independence, or lose simple pleasures. In addition to being emotionally devastating, brain injuries can incur substantial financial burdens, including multiple surgeries, ongoing therapy, or round-the-clock care. Families may struggle to provide the necessary support due to financial constraints. If you find yourself in this situation due to someone else's negligence or unlawful actions, you have the right to seek justice with the assistance of a Los Angeles brain injury attorney.

Brain Injury Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the Factors That Affect a Traumatic Brain Injury Settlement?

The amount recoverable in a brain injury case varies depending on numerous factors, including recovery time, necessary medical treatments, future medical needs, level of impairment, emotional anguish, financial duress, number of defendants, insurance coverage, and more. Working with an experienced attorney can help ensure you receive full and fair compensation for your losses.

How Do Courts Calculate a TBI Settlement?

Courts divide financial damages into special (economic) and general (non-economic) categories. Special damages are calculated based on hard evidence, such as medical bills and treatment plans, while general damages, such as pain and suffering, are more subjective and determined by a jury's discretion.

What Are the Long-Term Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Long-term effects of traumatic brain injuries can include financial burdens, physical disabilities, psychological or cognitive impairments, and emotional challenges. While some patients may make a full recovery, many endure lifelong consequences requiring ongoing support and care.

How Will a TBI Attorney Help?

A Los Angeles brain injury attorney can provide valuable resources, legal expertise, and support during this challenging time. From gathering evidence to negotiating with insurance companies, your attorney can handle the complexities of your case while you focus on healing.
