Mendez and Sanchez - Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys in Alhambra, California

If you or a family member suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a personal injury incident, you already understand the effect these injuries can have. Coping 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 everyday activities, and enjoy a long and active life.

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

Get in touch with an Alhambra traumatic brain injury lawyer at Mendez & Sanchez if you are suffering from a head injury due to 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 mild to severe with varying symptoms and degrees of prognosis.

Minor traumatic brain injuries generally affect an individual for a brief time period before they make a full recovery. More severe traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, torn tissue, bleeding, and other physical damage that results in long-lasting complications or death.

What Types of Brain Injury Cases Does Mendez & Sanchez Handle?

Our brain injury lawyers take on all types of cases involving brain injuries that were caused by another party's negligence. Some of the most common kinds of TBI claims we handle include:

Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are among the most common causes of brain injuries in the United States. Car crashes are common and many result in head injuries. Truck accidents are less common, however they involve devastating force that leads to an increased chance 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 car hits a pedestrian, they are typically thrown or crushed from the force of the vehicle. This impact commonly causes brain injuries in serious pedestrian or bicycle collisions.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a physician, hospital, or other healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care, resulting in 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 might result.

Birth Injury

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

Slip and Fall

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

Work-Related Accidents

Some workplaces and industries are known to be more dangerous than others. For instance, a worker in the construction industry might suffer a brain injury on the job from falling, being crushed, or during a vehicle accident. In these cases, they might be able to recover compensation through workers' compensation benefits. If a party besides the employer was responsible, they may be able to get additional compensation with 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 family. For the most part, victims and their loved ones are dealing with mounting bills, stress, and an uncertain future. If your traumatic brain injury is severe, you could be out of work for some time. In addition to medical bills, 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 only care about their bottom lines. If you try to settle, you might not get enough compensation for past medical bills, never mind future medical costs and lost time from work.

The various types of compensation that you could receive consist of:

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