Types of Brain Injury Cases Our Solvang Personal Injury Attorneys Handle

Brain injuries can generally be categorized as one of two primary types: traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) and acquired brain injury (“ABI”). ABI is any head injury that is not the result of a birth-related injury or hereditary condition. Examples of ABI include stroke, tumors, infectious disease, or a lack of oxygen supply to the brain. TBI is a specific type of ABI resulting from some type of external force aimed at the head or central nervous system. Our attorneys are experienced in representing victims with a range of TBIs, including:

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

In particular, we are experienced in negotiating settlements in cases involving the following types of accidents, among many others:

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

How Can A Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me Recover?

In a California personal injury lawsuit, your lawyer will need to prove four elements to successfully win damages. First, your lawyer must prove that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care to watch out for your safety and wellbeing. Then, your attorney must prove that the other party breached this duty of care, that this breach injured you, and that you suffered concrete, measurable damages. Your lawyer will attempt to prove these elements by presenting evidence of the facts leading up to the accident, the nature and extent of your injuries, and the expenses you have incurred as a result. In building your case, your lawyer will work with medical professionals to evaluate your injuries and draw a connection between the accident and the specific harm you suffered. He or she may also visit the accident scene, review photographic and video evidence, and speak with eyewitnesses to collect more information about the facts underlying the event. Particularly in cases of minor injury, you can often walk away with a decent settlement from the at-fault party’s insurance company. This settlement will allow you to pay your medical bills and manage other expenses stemming from your injury. However, if your lawyer is unable to negotiate a reasonable settlement with the insurance adjuster, he or she will help you decide whether to litigate the case. Preparing for trial is a challenging and often stressful endeavor, but an experienced litigator can help you navigate the process from start to finish – from subpoenaing witnesses to preparing pretrial motions and ultimately, trying the case.
