There are a lot of things in life that can be deemed as catastrophic. For instance, brain injuries, loss of limb, spinal cord injuries and chronic pain can all be classified as catastrophic. And the last thing you need to do is worry about recovery and paying for the medical bills. Worrying about how you will pay for medical bills and other expenses when dealing with a brain injury can hinder your recovery. If you suffered a traumatic brain injury after an accident, the personal injury attorneys at Mandell Trial Lawyers can help you seek fair and proper compensation from the responsible party so you can stop worrying about money and focus on your recovery.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Forceful and sudden jolts, hits, or bumps can cause damage to the brain. When this happens, the injury is classified as a traumatic brain injury.

There are several types of traumatic brain injuries. Examples of common types of traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Concussions – damage occurs when a jolt or bump causes the brain to hit the skull
  • Anoxic brain injury – occurs when a lack of oxygen causes damage to the brain.
  • Cerebral edema – swelling of the brain
  • Brain hemorrhage – occurs when unstoppable bleeding occurs around the brain. The
    blood builds up in the brain and can cause extensive and irreversible damage.
  • Diffuse axonal injury – sudden tearing of the nerve fibers of the brain that happened as a
    result of sudden movement or rotation of the brain
  • Hematoma – blood clots that formed near the brain

What Causes Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Any type of accident can result in a traumatic brain injury. The brain injury attorney at Mandell Trial Lawyers has represented clients who were injured during the following situations:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Construction site accidents
  • Medical malpractice

A California Brain Injury Law Firm Can Help You Get Fair Compensation for Your Injuries

Life will never be the same after a traumatic brain injury. The physical, emotional, and economic impact of this type of injury is devastating. Receiving compensation for your injuries won’t instantly make things better, but it can help you improve your quality of life.

The attorneys at a brain injury law firm, like Mandell Trial Lawyers, are committed to helping you get fair compensation for your injuries. The type of compensation that you can seek will vary depending upon your case but can often include the following types of damages:

  • Medical expenses – the cost of current and future medical expenses such as medical procedures, medicines, doctor appointments, specialist appointments, and diagnostic testing.
  • Pain and suffering – traumatic brain injuries are often so painful that they diminish your quality of life. You are entitled to seek compensation for pain and suffering if your quality of life has been impacted due to your injury.
  • Lost wages – receive compensation for time off of work needed for recovery or attending various doctor or medical appointments. If you are permanently disabled, you may be able to seek compensation for your inability to go back to work.
  • Emotional pain and suffering – victims of traumatic brain injuries often experience psychological changes. Compensation can be sought if you experience depression, anxiety, and other psychological problems resulting from your traumatic brain injury.

Calculating how much compensation is fair for your traumatic brain injury can be difficult because you might not know what type of treatment or expenses you will experience in the future. At Mandell Trial Lawyers, our brain injury attorney has experience determining how much compensation is fair so all your expenses, both current and future, are covered.
