Los Angeles Attorneys Help Auto Accident Victims with Traumatic Brain Injuries

California firm seeks compensation for people suffering from a TBI

Car accidents are among the most common causes of traumatic brain injury. At Mathew & George, we’ve seen that even minor accidents involving a sudden jolt or bump with no immediate symptoms can hide potential traumatic brain injuries. If this has happened to you in Los Angeles, California, we can help.

Experienced TBI lawyers handle car accident cases

Negligent drivers may be at fault for causing a head injury, but liability can extend further. Defective parts, hazardous conditions, or improper road construction or maintenance can contribute to accidents, making manufacturers or government agencies liable for injuries. Time is of the essence in car accident cases. California has a two-year statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit. For a claim against a government entity, the time limit is six months.

Knowledgeable advocates make the case for future medical expenses

California law has no cap on the amount a plaintiff can receive for an injury stemming from a car accident. The state’s comparative negligence rule reduces the award in proportion to the degree plaintiffs are found liable for their own injuries. This means that even a plaintiff who is found somewhat or mostly liable may recover for some injuries.

  • Economic damages — These damages include lost earnings, present and future medical costs, property damage, and loss of future income or household services.
  • Noneconomic damages — These include pain and suffering and diminished quality of life, as well as loss of consortium for the victim’s partner.
  • Punitive damages — In cases such as drunk driving where the defendant can be shown to have malice or willful disregard for the victim, the courts may award additional punitive damages.

Because traumatic brain injuries may be so serious and far-reaching, it’s important to have an experienced attorney who can advocate for the award you need to take care of yourself now and in the future.
