Head and brain injuries are among the more serious personal injuries. While any injury can alter a person’s life, these injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), are especially complex. TBIs are likely to result in lasting trauma and severe pain and could impact someone’s life forever. A brain injury may cause someone to lose out on several months of work, or they may be unable to ever work again. A brain injury leaves some people completely incapacitated. Treating a TBI is a lengthy and expensive process.
When you or a loved one suffers any injury in Oceanside, CA because of another person’s negligence, you have the right to receive compensation to take care of lost income, medical costs, and other expenses. You also have the right to non-economic damages like pain and suffering. This compensation is necessary, but it can be difficult for an injured person to file a claim and argue their case while in recovery. The most effective way to obtain the compensation you deserve and maximize the amount you receive is to work with an experienced Oceanside brain injury attorney.
Brain injuries are not always immediately recognizable, and symptoms can take time to surface. A brain injury can also be treated and seem to have healed but continue to have significant medical complications. TBIs and other head injuries have complicated and significant medical needs, and a personal injury claim needs to account for these complications and the potential for life-long costs.
When you or a loved one has a head or brain injury because another party was negligent, you need an attorney who understands how to hold that party responsible and knows the costs associated with a brain injury. At Perry Personal Injury Lawyers, we have represented the communities in the Oceanside area for many years. We focus on personal injury claims and have advocated for and obtained compensation for victims and their families in complex claims. A TBI may have been caused by a car accident, product liability, medical malpractice, or other accident. We have the experience to represent your interests against insurance providers, hospitals and healthcare facilities, and other parties.
The attorneys at Perry Personal Injury Lawyers understand the traumatic and difficult situation that you and your loved ones are in. We want to help you hold the liable party responsible and cover the damages you need.
TBIs can change a person’s entire life and can result in wrongful death in many cases. A brain injury may be a minor concussion, or it may be permanently disabling. Serious TBIs and head trauma require a high recovery cost, and victims deserve compensation to recover those costs.
Brain injuries don’t always have a clear at-fault party, but in cases such as car accidents, the liable party is usually more clear. A number of accidents where another party can be held liable for damages cause head injuries. The most common causes of brain injuries and head trauma include:
When someone is responsible for the life-changing injury that you or a loved one suffered, they should be held accountable.
When you work with an attorney, you increase the chances of your personal injury claim succeeding and are more likely to receive the maximum compensation possible for your claim. A personal injury claim is not simple to navigate. You have to deal with filing a claim with an insurance provider or with the court, meet the legal and other deadlines, and investigate the cause of your injury to determine who was at fault. This is difficult in ordinary circumstances, but it is much harder when you or your loved one is suffering from a brain injury. You may be in severe pain, dealing with medical costs and recovery, and unable to work for a significant period of time. All of this makes it much harder to handle a legal or insurance claim.
An attorney takes care of your claims. They negotiate with an insurance provider or other parties on your behalf to increase the compensation available to you. If these parties do not reach a fair settlement, an attorney will take the claim to court. Your attorney will calculate the damages available to you and likely will be aware of damages you didn’t know you could claim, such as future medical complication costs. A personal injury attorney has handled claims like this before and knows the legal deadlines and the ideal way to file a claim. They save you time and stress and can save you money in the long run. This allows you to rest and recover from your injuries.
Under the state’s personal injury claim laws, you can recover compensation for any damages caused by the at-fault party. The amount of compensation you receive in any personal injury claim relies on the severity of damages you suffered. TBI personal injury claims often result in high compensation amounts due to the injuries likely being severe and catastrophic. The damages that are available in a brain injury claim may include:
When you’ve suffered a brain injury, you deserve full compensation from the person who caused it by their carelessness or recklessness. Many individuals aren’t aware of the excess of damages available in their claim, such as non-economic damages or future complication costs. A personal injury attorney can help calculate these damages and has handled TBI claims like yours. Your attorney can also advocate for your interests if the other party claims you were liable or otherwise disputes liability.
Depending on the severity of a brain injury, symptoms may be obvious or incredibly hard to spot. Some TBIs show no symptoms for days to weeks after an accident. Symptoms of brain injuries, moderate to severe, may include:
How a brain injury will affect a person relies on the severity of the injury and what part of the brain it impacted. After an accident like a car crash or workplace accident, it’s essential that you are checked by medical professionals. They are better equipped to note the signs and symptoms of a brain injury. If you begin seeing symptoms or worsening symptoms after an accident, you want to get medical care. Not only is this important for your health and safety, but medical records of the injury are essential evidence when filing for a personal injury claim.
TBIs are usually caused by one of the following:
Traumatic brain injuries can change your or a loved one’s life, and you deserve compensation for the harm done to you.
