How Will a Los Angeles Brain Injury Attorney Help Me?
Brain injuries can have long-term and permanent effects. While no dollar amount can make up for a catastrophic brain injury, obtaining fair and full compensation can help a survivor move forward with greater peace of mind. A Los Angeles brain injury attorney can fight for maximum compensation on your behalf while you focus on healing.
You can trust your lawyer to relentlessly pursue the financial recovery that you need using proven legal strategies. Your lawyer can negotiate with an insurance claims adjuster, search for evidence of fault or negligence, hire experts at the top of their fields, and take your case to trial, if necessary, to achieve optimal results. Act swiftly, as there is a statute of limitations on brain accident claims.
Types of Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury is caused by an external force, such as a bump or blow to the head, while an acquired brain injury is caused by an internal issue, such as a loss of blood or oxygen to the brain. There are also open vs. closed head injuries. Open head injuries involve a punctured or broken skull along with a brain injury. Closed head injuries damage the brain without compromising the skull.
Within these main categories are many different types of brain injuries. The most common type is a concussion. This is often a mild brain injury, but can be moderate to severe. In some cases, victims suffer long-lasting symptoms, such as chronic headaches, dizziness, memory loss and trouble concentrating. Other types of brain injuries include coup-contrecoup, diffuse-axonal, hemorrhage (bleeding), edema (swelling), hematoma (bruising) and Shaken Baby Syndrome.
Brain Injuries and Negligence
You may be eligible for financial compensation if someone else caused or materially contributed to your brain injury in Los Angeles. If another person was negligent – meaning he or she failed to act with proper care – and this caused your injury, that person may be financially responsible for your related medical bills, disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Negligence is often behind serious and fatal brain injuries. This includes brain injuries from motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, slip and falls, workplace accidents, struck-by falling objects, sports incidents, swimming pool accidents, defective products or drugs, birth injuries, and medical malpractice. The attorneys at The Liberatore Law Firm can help if you or a loved one sustained a brain injury in any type of preventable incident in Southern California.
