North Hollywood Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

If you or a family member sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a personal injury accident, you already understand the impact these injuries can have. Coping with a brain injury is never easy. A TBI can be straining on an individual's physical, psychological, and financial health. A TBI can also make it hard to work, resume your everyday activities, and enjoy a long and active life.

After a brain injury, your future might depend on the treatment you receive and your ability to pay for the care that you need. That's why you should talk with an attorney about getting the compensation you deserve. The medical bills and lost wages, in addition to the pain and suffering, are not something you should have to handle alone.

Consult a North Hollywood traumatic brain injury lawyer at Drake Law Firm if you are struggling with a head injury because of an automobile accident or any other accident.

¿Qué es una lesión cerebral traumática?

La definición de lesión cerebral traumática es "una alteración del funcionamiento normal del cerebro que puede ser causada por un golpe, una sacudida o una lesión penetrante en la cabeza". Estas lesiones incluyen:

  • Daños en la integridad estructural del cráneo
  • Daños en el tejido cerebral por movimientos violentos
  • Lesiones en las que se penetra el tejido cerebral

Las LCT van de leves a graves, con distintos síntomas y grados de pronóstico.

Minor traumatic brain injuries generally affect an individual for a brief period of time before they make a full recovery. More severe traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, torn tissue, bleeding, and other physical damage that results in long-term problems or death.

¿Qué tipos de casos de lesiones cerebrales maneja el bufete Drake?

Our brain injury attorneys take on all types of claims involving brain injuries that were caused by another party's negligence. Some of the most common kinds of TBI cases we handle include:

Accidentes de coche, camión y moto

Automobile accidents are one of the most common causes of brain injuries in the United States. Car accidents are common and many lead to head injuries. Truck accidents are less common, but they involve devastating force that leads to an increased chance of a TBI. And motorcycle riders simply have little to no protection and can easily injure their head when they are struck or ejected from their bike.

Accidentes de peatones y ciclistas

Pedestrians and bicyclists are completely exposed when they are walking or biking near roads. If a car strikes a pedestrian, they are usually thrown or crushed from the force of the vehicle. This impact commonly causes brain injuries in serious pedestrian or bicycle collisions.

Negligencia médica

Medical malpractice happens when a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care, causing an injury to the patient. If the mistake causes a lack of oxygen to the brain, or fails to notice or treat an existing brain issue, a TBI can result.

Lesión de nacimiento

Infant brain damage can occur during childbirth in particular situations that are naturally caused and also in circumstances involving negligence. The most common causes of birth injury TBIs are the use of an instrument like forceps with excessive force or asphyxiation when the brain is deprived of oxygen for too long.

Resbalones y caídas

When a person slips and falls from a slippery floor or damaged staircase, they can easily hit their heads hard enough to result in a brain injury. Some falls are not serious and result in minor injuries. However some can be devastating and result in lasting consequences and real pain and suffering.

Accidentes laborales

Some workplaces and industries are known to be more hazardous than others. For instance, an employee in the construction industry may sustain a brain injury on the job from falling, being crushed, or during a vehicle accident. In these situations, they might be able to recover compensation through workers' compensation benefits. If a party besides the employer was responsible, they may be able to receive additional compensation through a third-party personal injury claim.

Indemnización por daños y perjuicios de una lesión cerebral

Receiving compensation for a brain injury that was not your fault can make all the difference for you and your loved ones. For the most part, victims and their families are dealing with accumulating expenses, stress, and an uncertain future. If your traumatic brain injury is serious, you could be out of work for some time. In addition to medical bills, you might be able to receive other compensation because of the accident.

Insurance providers will pay the least amount possible because they are in business to make money. They don't care about your injuries; they just care about their bottom lines. If you attempt to settle, you may not get sufficient compensation for past medical bills, never mind future medical bills and lost time from work.

The different kinds of compensation that you might receive consist of:

  • Gastos médicos anteriores por lesiones sufridas en el accidente.
  • Futuras facturas médicas por próximas cirugías y visitas al médico.
  • Terapias físicas, cognitivas y psicológicas. Este tipo de terapias puede prolongarse durante meses o años.
  • Salarios perdidos anteriores por el tiempo que no pudo trabajar a causa de sus lesiones.
  • Future lost income for time you can not work in the future or if you need to take a position that pays less.
  • Reparación o sustitución de automóviles.
  • Reposición de los bienes personales dañados en el accidente.
  • Pérdida de compañía si el siniestro le causó lesiones lo suficientemente graves como para no poder disfrutar haciendo cosas con sus seres queridos.
  • Loss of consortium if the accident caused injuries serious enough that you can not enjoy a physical relationship with your spouse.
  • El coste si debe emplear a alguien para las tareas cotidianas, como la compra, el mantenimiento del hogar y la limpieza.
  • Dolor y sufrimiento si los médicos esperan que sufra sus lesiones a largo plazo.
  • Daños punitivos si las acciones gravemente negligentes del conductor culpable causaron el accidente.

Traumatic brain injuries might be minor or serious and could have extensive recovery times. Compensation for long-term injuries will help you support yourself and your family.
