Brain injuries can occur whenever the head is bumped, jolted, hit, penetrated, or jostled in an aggressive way. This type of damage can be the result of car accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip/trip, and falls, or physical assaults. The severity of a traumatic brain injury can range from a mild form that causes temporary loss of consciousness or mental irregularities to severe damage that causes lengthy or permanent loss of brain function and memory. While most brain injuries are of the mild variety and require minimal medical intervention, severe brain injuries can have catastrophic consequences that irreversibly alter your health and quality of life.

Duty of Care
It must be proven that the other person owed you a duty of care and breached that duty of care. All motorists on California roads have a duty to drive safely and avoid negligent behavior that would put other people in danger. Additionally, property owners have a duty to provide safe premises and not act negligently in their maintenance and security of those premises.
Drivers breach this duty of care when they:
- Fail to keep their vehicles safe
- Break the speed limit
- Drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drive while distracted
- Make illegal turns
- Engage in other illegal or reckless behavior
Property owners breach this duty of care when they:
- Fail to maintain safe conditions
- Fail to maintain proper security
- Knew or should have known that a condition was dangerous and failed to take action
If any of the above occurred, you have the right to pursue compensation for your present medical bills, future medical bills, past lost wages, present lost wages, past pain and suffering, future pain and suffering and other damages you have incurred as a result of the accident. This remains true even if you were partially at fault. Unfortunately, insurance companies will not pay you what you deserve, because you don’t know these laws and they take advantage of that. We take pride in what we do and take pride in getting our clients every single penny that is owed to them by law.
We know the strategies used by insurance companies and defendants in brain injury cases to reduce their liability. Insurance adjusters might try to manipulate you into making a recorded statement that can be used against you. They might offer a low settlement before you know the full extent of your injuries. They might review your social media profiles for images that can be used to dispute the severity of your injuries. They go as far as hiring private investigators to follow you and video tape your day to day activities in an effort to minimize how much they pay you. You should never speak to the insurance adjuster, even when dealing with your own carrier, and you should not accept a settlement offer, without consulting an experienced car accident attorney. Countless times our clients have contacted us and we have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars more than the original offer.
There are several factors that will determine whether your claim is successful and the worth of your case. Those factors include:
- The severity of your brain injury
- The extent of medical treatment presently needed and needed in the future
- The cost of the medical bills you have incurred
- The cost of any future medical treatment you will need
- The amount of income you lost due to your injuries
- Whether your injuries have affected your future earning capacity
- Whether you required home modifications to accommodate your injury
- The cost of fixing your vehicle
- Whether your injury caused scarring, disability, or the loss of a bodily function
- How the injury affected your relationship with your spouse or registered domestic partner
- Whether the other party acted with malice, oppression, or fraud
