Slip and Fall Traumatic Brain Injury

Los Angeles Lawyers Fight for Compensation for Brain Injuries from Falls

Capable attorneys seek maximum damages for slip and fall victims in L.A.

Mathew & George, in Los Angeles, California, sees many clients who have suffered brain injuries as a result of a fall. In fact, falls are one of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries. Any time people hit their heads in a fall, there is the risk of a TBI, and it may not manifest until sometime later. As soon as you realize that you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, it is critical to call an attorney who has experience in this area. We can help you  anticipate your future needs and present a thorough case for compensation.

Experienced TBI firm aids those injured on someone’s unsafe property

The first step toward pursuing damages in your case is understanding who may be at fault. If you slipped and fell on a hazard — a spill that was not cleaned up, an improperly finished section of flooring or some damage to the floor itself — the property owner may be liable for your injury.

California reduces damages plaintiffs can receive in proportion to how liable they are for their own injuries. Experienced legal assistance can help the court and the other party understand why you should not be considered liable, which can have a significant effect on the final value of any award you receive. California usually allows victims to file suit for up to two years after an accident takes place (or after the injury becomes apparent). If you wait too long, you could lose your ability to collect damages. We can help you pursue compensation for your bills, lost income and suffering now and in the future.

Professional advocates preserve victims’ rights to recovery

Traumatic brain damage is one of the most subtle and complicated types of injury, as symptoms may go unnoticed for months or not even occur until well after the incident. California places these limits on the length of time you have to file a lawsuit after your injury is discovered:

  • Standard statute of limitations — In California, you generally have two years from the injury to file a lawsuit for a personal injury, but an earlier filing gives you more time to adjust your claim or seek a settlement.
  • Tolled statute of limitations — If you do not discover your injury or its full extent immediately, you have just one year to file suit after you discover it.
  • Statute of limitations for government entities — If a city, county or state government agency is liable for your injury due to negligence or improper construction, signage or maintenance, you may have only six months to file suit.

Our firm can explain how these and other laws may affect your case.
