What Compensation Can a San Diego Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer Help You Secure?

A San Diego traumatic brain injury lawyer can assist you in securing various forms of compensation. They can help ensure that you receive the financial support you deserve for the losses from a serious or catastrophic injury

Some forms of compensation we can help you secure include funds for:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for past, present, and future medical treatment related to your traumatic brain injury. This may include hospital bills, surgeries, rehabilitation, therapy, and medication costs.
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings: Reimbursement for wages lost due to time taken off work during recovery. It may also cover compensation for any diminished earning capacity or inability to work in the future due to the brain injury.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, and psychological trauma experienced as a result of the traumatic brain injury.
  • Disability and Impairment: Financial compensation for any permanent disabilities, impairments, or disfigurements resulting from the brain injury. These may impact your quality of life and ability to perform daily activities.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: If the traumatic brain injury results in the death of a loved one, compensation may be sought for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and the emotional toll of losing a family member.

Navigating the complexities of securing compensation for a traumatic brain injury requires legal experience in handling such cases. Our skilled and proven attorneys will work diligently on your behalf to ensure you receive fair and just compensation for your injuries and losses.

What Kinds of Accidents Can a San Diego Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney Handle?

Our San Diego traumatic brain injury attorneys are equipped to handle a wide range of accidents and incidents that result in traumatic brain injuries. These may include:

  • Vehicle & Pedestrian Accidents: Collisions involving motor vehicles like cars, trucks, and motorcycles can lead to traumatic brain injuries. Such brain injuries can be caused by the impact force, whiplash, or head trauma sustained in the accident. Collisions involving bicycles or pedestrians can also cause severe head injuries and traumatic brain injuries.
  • Slip & Fall Accidents: Slippery surfaces or uneven flooring in public places or private properties can cause individuals to fall and suffer traumatic brain injuries.
  • Construction & Workplace Accidents: Workers on construction sites are at risk of traumatic brain injuries from falls, falling objects, equipment malfunctions, or accidents involving heavy machinery. Industrial accidents, explosions, falls from heights, or exposure to hazardous materials in the workplace can cause traumatic brain injuries to employees.
  • Product Liability Incidents: Defective products, including malfunctioning equipment, faulty safety gear (like helmets), or hazardous consumer goods, can lead to accidents resulting in traumatic brain injuries.
  • Medical Malpractice: Errors or negligence by healthcare professionals during surgery, childbirth, anesthesia administration, or post-operative care can result in traumatic brain injuries.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the traumatic brain injury, a skilled San Diego TBI lawyer can provide valuable assistance. They will assess the details of the incident, gather evidence, and advocate on behalf of the injured party to pursue compensation for their damages and losses. Our experience in personal injury law enables us to navigate complex legal processes and fight for the rights of individuals affected by traumatic brain injuries.

The lifetime costs of a patient’s treatment for a traumatic brain injury are estimated to run from $85,000 to $3 million. This is just the medical cost and does not factor in losses like reduced earning capacity. There are also other losses like the opportunities missed due to your injury — pursuits like traveling, starting a business, or providing for a family.
