The Impact of Traumatic Brain Injuries
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our La Mirada brain injury attorneys have represented clients in a broad swath of brain injury cases.
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 TBIs.
In addition to concussions (minor TBIs) and moderate-to-severe TBIs, we represent victims suffering from:
- Closed head injuries;
- Open head injuries;
- Brain hemorrhages;
- Anoxic/hypoxic brain injuries;
- Diffuse brain injuries; and
- Other brain injuries.

How Will My Personal Injury Lawyer Prove My Case?
To recover damages for your injury, your lawyer will need to prove several key facts. If the other party was insured, the first step will be filing an insurance claim against that person – or entity’s – insurance company. Your lawyer will work to convince the insurer that the other party was at fault. Your lawyer will also need to connect the other party’s negligence to your injuries. Finally, your lawyer will need to present evidence of your economic losses in the form of medical bills, reports of lost or reduced income, and more.
In many cases, your lawyer will be able to negotiate a satisfactory settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier, particularly if your injuries are minor. Such a settlement will allow you to cover your medical bills and manage other expenses stemming from the accident. However, in many other cases, you may find the insurer’s offer unacceptable. In such cases, your lawyer may advise you to head straight to trial. Preparing for trial can be overwhelming, but a good lawyer will walk you through the process from start to finish.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our experienced, compassionate brain injury attorneys can handle each step of your case, from gathering evidence to preparing for trial. We are aggressive litigators who aren’t afraid to fight for our clients. To set up an appointment with us, call our 24-hour phone line at 1-800-GO-HARRIS or send us a message.
