Traumatic brain injuries can occur under a variety of different circumstances, including car accidents, slip and falls, boating accidents, and work-related accidents, to name a few. They can also range in size and scope from a minor concussion to a permanent coma or even death. Having an experienced brain injury attorney on your side can help you get the compensation you deserve.
If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury at someone else’s hands, you deserve to be compensated. At Rostam Law, our brain injury lawyers in Los Angeles and San Diego can evaluate your case and offer you skilled and thorough representation from beginning to end.
Traumatic brain injuries occur when a person strikes his or her head on something — or when an object penetrates the head. The force of this impact can cause the brain to move around inside the skull, potentially damaging the neurons and axons, and preventing the brain from functioning correctly. These injuries can occur in the following circumstances:
- A slip and fall accident where the accident victim strike his or her head on the floor
- A car accident where the accident victim strikes his or her head on the steering wheel, headrest, or window
- A bicycle or motorcycle accident where the accident victim falls of the bike and strikes his or her head on the ground (even while wearing a helmet)
Traumatic injuries to the head can have both short-term and long-term consequences. Some short-term consequences of a traumatic brain injury include short-term memory losses and headaches. Long-term symptoms can include permanent memory losses, paralysis, permanent inability to function, coma, or death. The consequences of a head injury depend primarily on the force of the blow to the head.
If you were involved in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, we may be able to file an insurance claim or lawsuit against that person and help you recover monetary compensation for your traumatic brain injury. You may be eligible to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost earnings, past and future pain and suffering, future medical costs, long-term care costs, and loss of use of a body part.
