Persistent Los Angeles Attorneys Seek to Recover Damages for Traumatic Brain Injuries

California firm with a history of success helps clients get compensated for TBIs

Mathew & George, in Los Angeles, California, understands that brain injuries can cause complicated symptoms that require a lifetime of expensive treatment. While today’s doctors have a better understanding of brain trauma than in the past, there is still much that is unknown, and prognoses are often uncertain. That is why it’s critical to have a law firm on your side that stays abreast of changes in both the medical and legal fields that could affect your case.

Experienced lawyers look into the nature and scope of the harm suffered

The terminology and diagnoses that are used for brain injuries can be confusing. We can explain what it means to your case if you or a loved one is suffering from a:

  • Contusion — A contusion is the result of the brain being slammed against the skull, a common cause of concussions. It doesn’t necessarily cause a person to lose consciousness or feel disoriented.
  • Penetrating brain injury — These serious injuries are caused by a foreign object or fragment of the skull entering the brain.
  • Diffuse axonal injury — Often one of the most severe forms of TBI, diffuse axonal injuries result in a long period of unconsciousness (usually six hours or more). Victims are often left comatose or in a vegetative state.

When a person suffers two or more concussions or experiences injuries that affect opposite sides of the skull, the results can be particularly damaging. At Mathew & George, we can explore the cause and the results of your injury. Even alcohol or substance dependency or abuse can be indicative of a TBI. If you or a loved one has been suffering from depression, anxiety, anger issues or other behavioral changes after a head injury, that is definitely something for us to consider.

Professional litigators pursue maximum damages

The full effects of traumatic brain injury are often unknown for months or years, so it’s important not to settle for too little. In California, there are no damages caps for most tort lawsuits. With care expenses and lost wages reaching millions of dollars for some sufferers, settlements and verdicts can be quite high. California also allows victims to pursue punitive damages if specific conditions are met. Typically, malice or willful disregard needs to be shown. These damages are intended to punish the other party and can vary immensely based on the circumstances.
