Life after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is never easy. Even survivors with so-called “mild” brain injuries can suffer from lasting effects that impact their lives and livelihoods for years to come. And for those with catastrophic TBIs, the challenges, costs, and consequences are even greater.
California law allows people who suffer TBIs due to another’s negligence to demand compensation for their losses through a personal injury claim. A successful TBI settlement or verdict can provide much-needed income for victims and their loved ones to rebuild their lives and prepare for the future.
Before you agree to any kind of brain injury settlement in California, talk to an attorney from Liberman Law Group. Insurance companies know that the stakes are high with TBI claims and look for every opportunity to reduce victims’ payouts. With the right legal representation, you stand a better chance of obtaining the compensation you deserve.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can happen from a violent blow to the head or when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue. TBIs vary significantly in severity. A person with a concussion might only need rest and monitoring to make a full recovery. By contrast, someone with massive internal brain bleeding from a car accident would need emergency care and be more likely to suffer from permanent disabilities.

It’s impossible to say how much a brain injury case is worth without examining the facts of the case. In general, the more severe the injury and its resulting expenses, the more compensation you may be entitled to receive. An experienced traumatic brain injury attorney can estimate what your case is worth after reviewing your case.
To determine a fair case value, your lawyer must document and calculate your losses. This step can be challenging. It’s easy enough to calculate your medical expenses by tallying up your bills, but what about future care costs? Or your pain and suffering? A knowledgeable California traumatic brain injury attorney from Liberman Law Group can do this for you.
