Topanga Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

If you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a personal injury accident, you already know the impact these injuries can have. Suffering from 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 daily activities, and enjoy a long and active life.

After a brain injury, your future can depend on the treatment you get and your ability to pay for the treatment that you need. That's why you should consult an attorney about receiving the compensation you are entitled to. The medical expenses and lost wages, in addition to the pain and suffering, are not something you should have to handle on your own.

Consult a Topanga 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

TBIs range from minor to severe with varying symptoms and degrees of prognosis.

Mild traumatic brain injuries usually affect a person 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-lasting complications or death.

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

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

Accidentes de coche, camión y moto

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of brain injuries in the United States. Car crashes are common and several lead to head injuries. Truck accidents are less common, however they involve devastating force that leads to an increased possibility of a TBI. And motorcycle riders simply have little to no protection and can easily hurt 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 roadways. If a car hits a pedestrian, they are often thrown or crushed from the force of the vehicle. This impact commonly results in brain injuries in major pedestrian or bicycle collisions.

Negligencia médica

Medical malpractice occurs when a physician, 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 may result.

Lesión de nacimiento

Infant brain damage can happen during childbirth in certain 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 too much 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 broken 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. Yet some can be devastating and result in long lasting consequences and real pain and suffering.

Occupational Accidents

Some workplaces and industries are known to be more dangerous than others. For instance, a worker in the construction industry may suffer a brain injury on the job from falling, being crushed, or during a car 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 get additional compensation through a third-party personal injury claim.

Indemnización por daños y perjuicios de una lesión cerebral

Getting compensation for a brain injury that was not your fault can make all the difference for you and your family. In most cases, victims and their families are dealing with accumulating bills, stress, and an unclear future. If your traumatic brain injury is serious, you could be out of work for a long time. In addition to medical bills, you may be able to receive other compensation because of the accident.

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

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

  • Past medical expenses for injuries you sustained in the accident.
  • Futuras facturas médicas por próximas cirugías y visitas al médico.
  • Physical, cognitive and psychological therapies. These types of therapies may continue for months or years.
  • Past lost income for time you could not work due to your injuries.
  • Future lost income for time you can not work in the future or if you have to take a position that pays less.
  • Vehicle repairs or replacement.
  • Reposición de los bienes personales dañados en el accidente.
  • Loss of companionship if the accident caused injuries severe enough so that you can not enjoy doing things with your family.
  • Loss of consortium if the accident caused injuries severe enough that you can not enjoy a physical relationship with your partner.
  • The cost if you must hire someone for everyday tasks, such as grocery shopping, home maintenance, and cleaning.
  • 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 may be minor or serious and can have lengthy recovery times. Compensation for long-term injuries will help you support yourself and your loved ones.
