Mendez & Sanchez - Los Angeles Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys

If you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a personal injury incident, you already know the impact these injuries can have. Living with a brain injury is never easy. A TBI can be straining on an individual's physical, mental, and financial health. A TBI can also make it difficult to work, resume your daily activities, and enjoy a long and active life.

After a brain injury, your future might depend on the treatment you receive and your ability to pay for the care that you need. That's why you should consult a lawyer about receiving the compensation you deserve. The medical expenses and lost wages, as well as the pain and suffering, are not something you should have to manage alone.

Get In Touch With a Los Angeles traumatic brain injury attorney at Mendez & Sanchez if you are suffering from a head injury because of a motor vehicle accident or any other accident.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

The definition of a traumatic brain injury is "a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury." These injuries include:

TBIs range from minor to severe with varying symptoms and degrees of prognosis.

Minor traumatic brain injuries usually impact a person for a short period of time before they make a full recovery. More serious traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, torn tissue, bleeding, and various other physical damage that results in long-term complications or death.

What Kinds Of Brain Injury Claims Does Mendez & Sanchez Handle?

Our brain injury attorneys handle all kinds of lawsuits involving brain injuries that were caused by another party's negligence. A few of the most common types of TBI claims we handle include:

Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents

Automobile accidents are among the most common causes of brain injuries in the United States. Car crashes are common and several lead to head injuries. Truck accidents are less common, but they involve devastating force that leads to an increased likelihood of a TBI. And motorcycle riders simply have little to no protection and can easily hurt their head when they are struck or ejected from their bike.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Pedestrians and bicyclists are completely exposed when they are walking or cycling near roadways. If a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, they are often thrown or crushed from the force of the vehicle. This impact commonly results in brain injuries in major pedestrian or bicycle accidents.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care, causing an injury to the patient. If the mistake causes a lack of oxygen to the brain, or fails to notice or treat an existing brain issue, a TBI may result.

Birth Injury

Infant brain damage can happen during childbirth in certain situations that are naturally caused and also in circumstances involving negligence. The most common causes of birth injury TBIs are using an instrument like forceps with too much force or asphyxiation when the brain is deprived of oxygen for too long.

Slip and Fall

When an individual slips and falls from a slippery floor or broken staircase, they can easily hit their heads hard enough to result in a brain injury. Some falls are not serious and result in minor injuries. However some can be devastating and lead to long lasting consequences and real pain and suffering.

Job-related Accidents

Some jobs and industries are known to be more dangerous than others. For example, a worker in the construction industry may suffer a brain injury on the job from falling, being crushed, or during a car accident. In these cases, they may be able to recover compensation through workers' compensation benefits. If a party besides the employer was responsible, they may be able to receive additional compensation through a third-party personal injury claim.

Compensation for Damages from a Brain Injury

Getting compensation for a brain injury that was not your fault can make all the difference for you and your loved ones. In most cases, victims and their families are dealing with accumulating expenses, stress, and an unclear future. If your traumatic brain injury is serious, you may be out of work for some time. In addition to medical expenses, you might be able to receive other compensation because of the accident.

Insurance providers will pay the least amount possible because they are in business to make money. They do not care about your injuries; they just care about their bottom lines. If you try to settle, you may not receive sufficient compensation for past medical bills, never mind future medical bills and lost time from work.

The various kinds of compensation that you may receive consist of:

Traumatic brain injuries might be mild or serious and can have extensive recovery times. Compensation for long-term injuries will help you support yourself and your family.
