Facing Challenges with You

brain injury lawyers in Orange County

Living with a brain injury can be extremely challenging not only for victims but also for their family members. In addition to what these victims and families go through emotionally, they are also faced with significant financial burdens. Medical expenses, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, and other forms of therapy can add up very quickly and push families into debt.

A traumatic brain injury can become a catastrophic injury. What this means is that victims of such traumatic injuries are often left with lifelong disabilities that prevent them from going back to the lives they had prior to the injury.

Most of them are not able to return to the jobs they had prior to the injury or are even unable to re-join the workforce. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, an experienced Orange County brain injury attorney can help you better understand your legal rights and options.

Although brain injuries can range from mild to severe, there are many Different Types of Brain Injuries.

Causes of Serious Head Injuries in Orange County

They are many ways in which a brain injury can occur. Most brain injuries are caused by an impact on the head and the brain. Some head injuries or brain injuries can be critical or life-threatening. Others are moderate or even minor. However, regardless of the severity of the injuries, victims should obtain prompt medical attention to prevent the situation from worsening.

A minor or moderate head injury can take a turn for the worse without prompt treatment. There are several possible causes for brain injuries such as:

Motor Vehicle Accidents: About one-third of all brain injuries in the United States are caused by auto accidents. These include car accidents, bike crashes, motorcycle accidents, truck collisions, pedestrian accidents, and bus crashes to mention a few. When motor vehicle accidents cause serious brain injuries, it is important to determine who was at fault and who should be held liable.

Falls: In the United States, falls are the leading cause of all traumatic brain injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Falls could occur in nursing homes, at work areas such as construction sites, or as the result of a slip-trip-and-fall accident. Depending on the circumstances of the fall, the at-fault party can be held liable. For example, if a nursing home resident suffers a brain injury as the result of an employee’s negligence, the nursing home can be held liable for the injuries. If a visitor to a shopping center slips and falls on liquid spilled on the floor that was not cleaned up in a timely manner, the property owner could be held liable for the victim’s injuries.

Acts of Violence: An assault with a weapon such as a gun, knife, or even a baseball bat can result in a traumatic brain injury. In such cases, in addition to criminal prosecution, the at-fault party can also be held civilly liable for their wrongdoing.

Sports-Related Injuries: Head injuries such as concussions are extremely common in contact sports. However, when a serious brain injury occurs because of someone’s negligence, there may be a basis for a lawsuit. Assumption of risk is often a factor in such cases. This means that athletes assume a certain element of risk when they play sports. An experienced Orange County brain injury lawyer will be able to determine fault and liability in such complex cases.

Medical Negligence: There are cases when a doctor or medical staff’s negligence can cause a brain injury. For example, if oxygen is cut off to the brain of an unborn child during labor or delivery, the child may suffer a brain injury or irreversible brain damage. In such cases, a doctor who failed to recognize symptoms of fetal distress could be held liable.

Client Reviews

Bisnar Chase Google Review - Lena

I wasn’t sure if I needed a personal injury attorney because I’d never been in a car accident before. I assumed I’d just go straight through the other driver’s insurance but that quickly became a nightmare. I spent months fighting over the simplest of issues about my case, which was 100% the other driver’s fault. I hired Bisnar Chase to see if they could just take it over for me. I was really impressed with how much they communicated everything to me! I suddenly started getting calls from the insurance company, imagine that. My final settlement was 6 times what I asked for to begin with. Everyone I dealt with was really involved in what was best for me, not the insurance.

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!

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.
