Traumatic Brain Injury Cases: Los Angeles & Nationwide
Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers
If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI), we can only begin to understand your despair and feelings of helplessness. Families of individuals with a personal injury as TBI, they say their lives are irrevocably changed. The challenges of caring for someone with a traumatic brain injury can be more daunting, and the expenses can be enormous.
Traumatic Brain Injury: Where to Turn?
When someone is at fault for causing or contributing to a traumatic brain injury, the victim and their family may have legal recourse and compensation beyond insurance and small compensatory payments.
With cases of traumatic brain injury, time is of utmost importance. First and foremost, medical care must be obtained, but contact us as soon as you can to discuss your options. Insurance companies are quick to contact victim’s families and offer settlements, but these financial arrangements are frequently short-term and less than what might be awarded in a lawsuit. You have legal rights that, if you sign anything, might be signed away in the “fine print.”
Our attorneys work closely with physicians and other health care professionals to help victims and their families seek and demand a resolution that will provide for the health, well being, and financial support a traumatic brain injury victim will need for life.
