The traumatic brain injuries we help with were always brought about by an unfortunate mishap. For example, did you suffer a head wound or an infection such as meningitis?

Sometimes victims can develop cancers and tumors. This is serious stuff. The human brain is without question, the most vital bodily organ. Also, your brain is essential to permanent cognitive function.
So this means it is necessary for maintaining normal human emotions, and in performing daily tasks.

Accidents Causing Brain Injury
Accidents and other similarly shocking events causing intensive brain injuries, usually have a devastating impact on the lives of individuals and families. Typically, head impacts and other related diseases cause infections causing these injuries to be permanent.
Most of all, these can result in lifetime negative health issues. Because of this type of harm, things such as the cognitive impairment are often diagnosed by medical doctors. Last, these healers typically see these devastating symptoms present in traumatic or mild traumatic brain injury victims. Sometimes these injuries were due to illegal criminal behavior, not just a civil wrong. In many cases, victims are left unable to perform everyday tasks.
Pain and the Brain
Living in extreme pain is often a fact of life associated with a damaged brain. Also, in most cases, incidents of head wounds could have been mitigated or prevented if someone had not been reckless or negligent. Our local Orange County and Los Angeles head injury lawyers are in the business of helping suffering individuals. Most of all, these are victims who suffered injuries involving the head and brain. In addition, most of these injuries resulted from devastating and preventable events.

Finally, we are highly selective. Thus, we only want the cream of the crop as part of our client case load.

Without going into too much detail here, impacts and trauma to your skull and neck region can cause you a severe, clinically described conditions. Most of all, you can be subject to a subdermal hematoma, concussion, swelling and water on the brain. Also, some victims are facing hemorrhage and intracranial pressure; coupled with swelling. Sadly, this can become global hypoxia, anoxic brain injury or hypoxic brain injury (See below).
But there are also many other types of problems such as loss of mental ability. Sadly, this can interfere with a patient’s faculty of reason. So in addition to the above, things like feelings, thoughts and analysis factors are also upset. Furthermore, sometimes the injury-producing event can lead to a coma. Consequently, this persistent vegetative state often leads survivors to the courthouse steps in the form of a wrongful death lawsuit.
Understanding the Human Brain

- Diffuse Axonal Injuries (DAI)
- Concussions and Contusions
- Anoxic Brain Injuries
- Subdural Hematoma
- Epidural Hematoma [1. Learn more about brain mechanism of injury and types here]

Understanding Brain Injury Medical Care
Acute brain injury is often life long. The traumatology may include PTSD and other complications. Hence, it may require at home nursing care, gadgets and devices to assist the person in his medical treatment. Consequently, it may also require life-long medication.
Most of all, our Los Angeles and Orange County brain injury attorneys have vast legal experience in brain injury lawsuits. Thus, our lawyers specialize in helping the victim manage his or her care. Therefore, we take steps to help mitigate injuries and maximize the total compensatory award of special and general damages.
Importance of Day in the Life Journaling
A victim should be keeping a day in the life journal, or “diary.” Thus, they should be documenting their day to day struggles with memory loss, pain, etc. Also, vigorous case management like this maximizes potential economic recovery. So for it to be just, it needs to look at the given circumstances of each instance. Last, our job is to present your case to the insurance adjuster, or judge, in a light most favorable to you.
Sadly, monetary compensation is the only way you can get money to help you cope with the life-altering effects of permanent head trauma. But our firm makes sure to get you the best lawyers, medical and economic experts.
Often, a professional practitioner or researcher like a psychologist is hired to help classify any social, behavioral, or cognitive science related to the case. Also, experts like life care planners and other specialists will be hired to help build a lifetime actuarial table.
So mapping out the anticipated and existent health problems over a person’s life helps the lawyers maximize the case value. These are professionals who will assist you in evaluating the lifetime care plan. Thus, they can help you get money for things like prescription drugs, doctors. Also, we seek money damages for your future transportation and full-time nursing care, and even nursing facilities. Money for ongoing therapy is often needed life-long for many head injury victims.
Identifying Potential Defendants
We’re looking for out everyone who was negligent and responsible. Anyone involved is a potential defendant. So they could all be on the hook for your brain damages and other injuries.
Negligence Does Not Require Intent – Anyone Responsible is Potentially a Brain Injury Claim Defendant
So it does not matter whether they acted with malicious intent. Furthermore, even if it was a poorly made or designed defective product we can help seek money from the manufacturer. Also, in some cases the defendant may have made the injury worse, such as when a nurse or caregiver prescribes an unfortunate course of care or treatment. It could be that a defendant is liable for subsequent medical malpractice. Furthermore, these persons are all potentially insured.
Thus, there is potentially money somewhere to cover you. Also, while their insurance companies fight to pay you as little as possible, we will seek to obtain maximum compensation on your behalf. Hence, having the right advocate who is a “rainmaker,” means maximizing the final sum.
Also, because the science involved in serious brain injuries is evolving constantly, you need to retain lawyers who have extensive experience in this field of law and science. Furthermore, these cases will typically require psychological testing by the best medical experts in the field. So if need be, we exhaust your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, so we can go to trial. Also, if we do so, the defendants’ personal assets are then exposed. Therefore, we can seek an assignment of an insurance bad faith claim. And these are just a few ways we can maximize your payout for damages even further.
