Traumatic brain injuries and other types of brain injuries can be catastrophic. They can lead to an immense amount of pain and permanent side effects, including cognitive deficiencies, personality changes, and physical limitations.

We offer free case evaluations. There are no upfront fees for talking with us or hiring us for your brain injury case.
We Handle Claims Involving All Types of Brain Injuries
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we have represented many brain injury victims. One of the most common brain injuries is a mild, moderate, or severe TBI. A TBI is caused by a sudden force exerted against the head. It may be associated with a penetrating injury to the skull and brain, but this is not required.
A mild TBI is commonly known as a concussion. While a concussion is the most minor form of a TBI, it can still present with painful and challenging symptoms that take weeks or months to recover from. A moderate TBI usually results in a greater degree of impairment and longer-lasting symptoms. You may suffer from long-term or permanent side effects following a moderate TBI. A severe TBI is associated with significant cognitive, psychological, and physical impairments. The most serious TBI’s can result in a coma, vegetative state, minimally conscious state, and death.
Our Santa Monica brain injury lawyers also handle claims involving brain injuries related to oxygen deprivation. If you or a loved one suffered brain damage due to an anoxic or hypoxic brain injury, call us immediately.
We are here to pursue compensation for your brain injury if you suffered a hemorrhage due to another person’s negligence. A hemorrhage occurs when there is uncontrolled bleeding in your skull or brain. This may occur along with a TBI or another open head injury.
Additionally, we can help if you suffered a diffuse brain injury, during which you suffered brain damage without any bleeding in your brain.
Whatever type of brain injury you are diagnosed with, you deserve to hold the at-fault party responsible. You should have an experienced and skilled brain injury attorney in Santa Monica aggressively pursue an insurance settlement or court award.
Brain Injury Compensation
When another person’s careless, reckless, or intentional misconduct is responsible for your brain injury, you may have the right to hold that person legally responsible. You can do this through filing a personal injury lawsuit and/or pursuing compensation through an insurance claim. Our Santa Monica brain injury attorneys can represent you both litigation and the insurance claim process.
We will work closely with you and your medical providers to document the myriad effects of the brain injury, including any physical pain and limitations, sensory issues, cognitive difficulties, and personality changes. We will document your reduced quality of life in order to pursue the maximum compensation for your injuries.
We will demand you receive fair compensation for your:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Other Expenses and Financial Losses
- Physical Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Loss of Normal Life
- Reduced Quality of Life
- Reduced Earning Capacity
- Loss of Consortium
How Our Santa Monica Brain Injury Lawyers Can Help
There are many ways it benefits you to hire a veteran brain injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident. To begin with, our team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers believes in acting right away. We will immediately investigate the accident and gather as much evidence as possible regarding what happened and why.
Once we have thoroughly examined the available evidence, we may advise filing a personal injury lawsuit. Filing suit is often an important step in gathering additional information. Through the discovery process, we can obtain admissions, records, and other information from the negligent party. This is particularly important if the at-faulty party is a business and their records may be vital to proving their negligence.
Our Santa Monica brain injury attorneys will handle the entire insurance claim process for you. We will take the insurer’s calls, read and respond to their letters, and ensure the insurer has all of the information it needs to approve your claim.
Most importantly, we will carefully calculate your damages. We will determine the maximum potential value of your claim, which will guide us in negotiating an insurance settlement or demanding compensation at trial. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we have won more than $300 million for more than 5,000 clients.
