Why Should You Hire a Brain Injury Lawyer?

Why should you hire a brain injury lawyer?

The main reason to hire a brain injury lawyer is that it’s the best way to get justice and make sure you are compensated for your injury.

Suffering a brain injury can dramatically alter your life. In some cases, the injury will be temporary, and you might be left dealing with pain and other symptoms for a few days or weeks. Symptoms from other brain injuries can last for months or years, with some even leaving victims battling symptoms for the rest of their lives. In extreme cases, a personal injury involving the brain can even prove fatal.

In cases involving personal injury and wrongful death, you should consult with legal help. If you were harmed due to the negligence of another person or company, you should consider hiring a brain injury attorney.

While you focus on your health, a high-quality brain injury lawyer will be able to fight for your rights. At Bisnar Chase, our attorneys are passionate about holding wrongdoers and negligent people responsible when their actions have serious consequences.

If you have suffered a brain injury, hire a head injury lawyer to help ease the weight on your shoulders. Your attorney will be able to build a strong case and give you the best chance of success.

Types of Brain Injury

When it comes to damage to the brain, it is important to remember that the term ‘brain injury’ covers a huge range of harm. Knowing what type of injury you have sustained is important when deciding how to approach a legal claim.

The following types are all traumatic brain injuries – caused by external sources and traumas:

Concussion

  • Concussions are caused by trauma to the brain, either from a direct impact to the head or from a rapid movement that shakes the brain, such as a whiplash injury.
  • A concussion is the most common form of brain injury.
  • It can result in damage to the blood vessels and nerves in the brain, as well as brain bleeding or swelling.
  • Some concussions heal within a week without any symptoms developing. Others can leave a victim struggling for months or years.

Brain Contusion

  • This is a term describing a bruise on the brain.
  • Contusions are usually caused by a physical impact to the head.
  • Contusions can cause bleeding in the brain and may require surgery to facilitate recovery.

Penetrating Wound

  • Penetration refers to brain injuries caused by objects being forced into the brain.
  • This form of brain injury most commonly occurs from gunshot and stabbing wounds – a bullet or knife impacting the skull might push skin, bone, and other fragments into the brain.

Lesser Known Types of Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Coup-Contrecoup – Dual harm, with injuries occurring on both sides of the brain. This happens when one side of the brain is hit by an impact so hard that it causes the brain to move and hit the other side of the skull.
  • Diffuse Axonal – Caused by violent shaking of the head and brain. Can cause nerve and structural tears, resulting in severe brain damage.

How Do Brain Injuries Happen?

Brain injuries usually occur due to a powerful physical impact to the head, or rapid and violent movements which ‘shake’ the brain and cause it to hit the inside of the skull.

These are some of the most common everyday causes of brain injuries:

  • Vehicle accidents (including car crashes, motorbike accidents, truck accidents, accidents involving pedestrians, and more.)
  • Sporting injuries
  • Falls (such as a slip-and-fall accident resulting in the victim hitting their head)
  • Being struck by a person or object
  • Violent assaults
  • Drowning. Brain damage can occur when the brain is starved of oxygen. For example, if a victim is thrown underwater in a boating accident.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries vary by age group.

Across the U.S., stats show that about 2.8 million people suffer brain injuries yearly, including nearly 20,000 victims in California. The top cause of brain injuries is people falling, followed by object impacts and car accidents:

Symptoms of a Brain Injury

There is an extremely wide range of symptoms that you might experience if you have suffered a brain injury. They can include everything from physical side effects to mental issues.

Brain injury symptoms can include:

  • Physical
    – Weakness and a loss of balance
    – Paralysis
    – Tremors
    – Fatigue
    – Problems with speech and language
    – Impaired vision

    – Memory issues
    – A difficulty concentrating
    – Reduced ability to reason and process information
  • Emotional
    – Anxiety
    – Depression
    – Mood swings
    – Personality changes

These are just some of the major and life-altering impacts that a brain injury can have on a person. Some of these symptoms might be temporary, but in other cases, they could be long-lasting or even permanent.

These symptoms can turn a person’s life upside down. Many brain injury victims lose the ability to work and live independently. This is why injury clients should turn to an experienced brain injury attorney for help. Contact us now and let us seek justice for you.

Brain Injury Claims

The statute of limitations for a brain injury lawsuit in California will usually be two years. This means a victim should file their claim within two years of the accident causing their injury.

It is important to remember that exceptions will change the statute of limitations for some cases. Contacting a brain injury lawyer in California as soon as possible is best to get the ball rolling on a legal claim.

Brain Injury Compensation

What level of compensation can you expect if your brain injury lawsuit is successful? As with all personal injury claims, it will depend on your specific circumstances.

Typically, compensation will depend on some of the following factors:

  • The level of pain and suffering endured.
  • Medical bills and expenses.
  • Lost earnings – if you have been unable to work.
  • Loss of livelihood – if the brain injury is severe enough to stop you doing your chosen job.
  • Rehab costs.
  • Impact of paralysis or loss of brain function.
  • Costs of care and equipment.
  • Loss of relationships.

Provide your attorney with as much information as possible to help them build a strong legal case for you.

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!

Bisnar Chase Google Review

I had an attorney for my truck accident who wanted almost 60% of what my case was worth. Worse than that, he was willing to settle for $5,000.00 with the insurance company even though I was still treating for whiplash and back pain. I contacted Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys because a friend recommended them. My case was handled exceptionally well! I was being kept notified throughout the whole process and only when I was comfortable with the settlement figure, did my attorney Gavin Long, accept it. I felt like we were working together and I felt listened to. I would refer Bisnar Chase to anyone who wants quality over quantity!

Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I can’t really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as well as I could have hoped.
