The brain, one of the body’s most critical organs, is unfortunately somewhat susceptible to injuries. The skull is thin enough to offer little protection from bumps and blows to the head. An impact in the wrong place could injure the brain or cause it to ricochet off the inside of the skull. This could lead to serious injuries. Many different accidents could cause an injury to the head and brain.
These accidents and hazards could cause brain injuries such as concussions, bleeding, swelling, diffuse axonal injuries, coup-contrecoup injuries, acquired brain injuries and more. A lawyer from The Law Offices of Howard Kitay could help you seek fair compensation for your brain injury and related damages after any type of accident in La Mesa.
In California, injured accident victims have the right to pursue compensation from the parties at fault for their damages. If you were in an auto accident and have a traumatic brain injury, for example, you may have the right to file a claim against the at-fault driver. Before you can file your claim, however, you or your personal injury lawyer will have to identify the liable party.
Proving liability generally takes demonstrating the defendant’s negligence. Negligence is someone’s breach of the duty to exercise reasonable care. Our attorneys have years of experience proving negligence to insurance claims adjusters, judges and juries in California during brain injury claims. We may be able to help you hold one or more defendants accountable for your brain injury.
At The Law Offices of Howard Kitay, we know taking legal action might be the last thing you wish to focus on as the survivor of a brain injury. While you undergo treatments and attend rehabilitation, however, your brain injury lawyer could be pursuing financial compensation on your behalf. If you are eligible for compensation through California’s civil justice laws, a lawyer from our law firm can work to maximize the value of your claim. You may qualify for compensation for damages such as lifetime medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, personal expenses, punitive damages, and more. Our law firm has the ability to take clients to trial in La Mesa for full compensation, if necessary.
Obtaining a fair compensatory award could make it easier to live with a brain injury.
