About Traumatic Brain Injuries
Irvine Personal Injury Attorney
When an individual receives an injury to the brain resulting in a loss of consciousness for more than 6 hours, it is considered a traumatic brain injury or TBI. Perhaps the most common cause of TBIs is car, truck or motorcycle accidents. Work-site accidents and personal violence against a person can result in a TBI as well. Due to the severity and possible consequences of these injuries, at the Pacific Attorney Group we feel that those who cause a TBI to another, through their own negligence, need to be held responsible for their actions.
A TBI can bring about serious impairments such as depression, sleep disorders, seizures, paralysis, a partial or total loss of hearing or vision, plus memory and attention problems. These injuries can have permanent and harsh consequences and can result in a wrongful death. An experienced, competent Irvine personal injury lawyer should be consulted to help recover the compensation you may now need to help the victim of a TBI.
Making the Case for You
A legal case involving a TBI must be thoroughly investigated as to the exact cause of the injury and who was at fault. In the case of a vehicle accident, police reports will need to be gathered and analyzed. Frequently, on-site investigation of the accident site is needed to find and document what occurred. Witness statements can be an important element to proving your case and well as documentation from hospitals and physicians as to the extent and severity of the injury.
Once the full information is gathered and reviewed, compensation can be sought. With TBIs, recovery can be lengthy and very costly. Rehabilitation can become a long-term part of any recovery program and if the victim can no longer work compensation should be paid for lost wages. TBIs can lead to other medical complications which need to be resolved as well. Insurance companies and others are frequently uncooperative when it comes to paying the full amount owed on claims. We are here to ensure you and your family has someone with experience who can fight on your behalf.
