Types of Brain Injury Claims Our Brea Personal Injury Attorneys Handle

The brain injury attorneys in our Brea office have represented clients in all types of brain injury claims. Brain injuries can generally be categorized as one of two primary types: traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) and acquired brain injury (“ABI”):

  • ABI describes any type of head injury that is not the result of a birth injury or a hereditary or degenerative condition. This may include stroke, tumors, infectious disease, or a lack of oxygen supply to the brain.
  • TBI is a specific type of ABI that results from external force or strain aimed at the brain or nervous system. Our attorneys are experienced in representing accident victims who have suffered from TBIs.

Our Brea brain injury lawyers also represent victims suffering from: 

  • Closed head injuries;
  • Open head injuries;
  • Brain hemorrhages;
  • Hematomas;
  • Edema;
  • Anoxic/hypoxic brain injuries; and
  • Diffuse brain injuries.

We will investigate the cause of your brain injury and prepare for settlement negotiations based on the specific facts of your case, the nature of your injury, and the cause of the injury. In particular, we are experienced in negotiating settlements in cases involving the following types of accidents:

  • Car, truck, and bus accidents
  • Rideshare vehicle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Scooter accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Airplane accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Sporting accidents

When to Seek Treatment for Your TBI

The particular danger of a TBI is that many symptoms may not present until days, weeks, or even months after your accident. These symptoms can be serious and even life-threatening.  Common TBI symptoms include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Blurred vision
  • Ear ringing
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Disrupted sleep patterns

The severity of your symptoms will likely depend on the seriousness of the trauma you sustained in the accident. Some symptoms may not manifest for days or even weeks, so any symptoms – no matter how minor – warrant immediate medical attention.

How A Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

If you have been injured, contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your financial recovery options. A skilled personal injury attorney can:

  • Work with medical professionals to evaluate the extent and severity of your injuries and to place a monetary value on your claim;
  • Contact investigators and other professionals to establish the cause of the accident and to determine who should be held liable;
  • Gather and evaluate evidence to present to an insurance company and, when necessary, a judge or jury;
  • Correspond with insurance companies on your behalf to negotiate a settlement; and
  • When needed, file a lawsuit against the at-fault party to seek a judgment or jury verdict in your favor.
