San Pedro Brain Injury Attorneys
Brain injury victims can pursue compensation for their medical treatment and in some cases, their pain and suffering. In this way, the law supports victims of life-altering accidents by ensuring they are set up to manage the financial fallout from their injuries. Nonetheless, there is simply no figure that can alleviate the lasting physical, emotional, and psychological trauma caused by a traumatic brain injury.
If you’ve been in an accident and have reason to believe someone else is to blame, our personal injury firm can help. Throughout the years, we have recovered more than $300 million in settlements and trial verdicts, a substantial portion of which was in accidents resulting in traumatic brain injuries. While we can never guarantee an outcome in your case, we can advise you as to the best strategy and will represent you in negotiations with insurance carriers and, when necessary, in a court of law.
The Lasting Impact of Traumatic Brain Injuries
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our 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 is a term that describes any type of head injury that is not the result of a birth injury or a hereditary or degenerative condition. ABI may include stroke, tumors, infectious disease, or a lack of oxygen supply to the brain. Conversely, TBI results from external force aimed at the brain or central nervous system. Our attorneys are experienced in representing accident victims who have suffered various types of ABI and TBI.
In addition to concussions (which are, essentially, minor TBIs) and moderate-to-severe TBIs, our brain injury lawyers also represent victims suffering from the following conditions, among numerous others:
- Closed head injuries
- Open head injuries
- Brain hemorrhages
- Anoxic and hypoxic brain injuries
- Diffuse brain injuries
Can A Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me? How?
If you work with a personal injury lawyer, you significantly improve your chances of recovering damages, which can help you fund your medical treatment and even compensate you for your lost income. Your lawyer 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.
Compensation for the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial damages stemming from your injuries is called “compensatory damages.” Compensatory damages are meant to compensate you for tangible losses, like income and medical bills.
Common recoverable items may include some of the following:
- Past, current and future medical expenses incurred as a result of your injury
- Lost wages and reduced future earning potential due to lasting or permanent disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering stemming from the accident
- Emotional and psychological distress
- Permanent disfigurement or disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Property damage stemming from the accident
Reach out to an experienced personal injury lawyer to see if you may be able to recover compensatory damages in your case.
