Fighting for Full Compensation for Personal Injury Clients in Los Angeles

Brain injuries encompass a broad spectrum of damage to one of the most critical organs of the body. Injuries to the brain can profoundly alter one’s life. These injuries are generally classified into two main types: traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and non-traumatic brain injuries. 

Traumatic brain injuries result from external forces, such as a blow or jolt to the head, often seen in accidents or violent incidents. These injuries can range from mild, commonly known as concussions, to severe, leading to permanent brain damage or even death.

If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury due to a negligence-based accident or the deliberate misconduct of another, as in a criminal attack, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party or parties. 

At Hartounian, APLC, we focus our practice on injury claims and lawsuits and have achieved a strong track record of success for clients. Our competent legal team has secured millions of dollars in client compensation since our founding.

Overview of Brain Injuries

The brain functions as the command center of the human body, responsible for controlling thoughts, memory, emotion, touch, motor skills, vision, breathing, temperature, hunger, and every process that regulates the body. 

The brain interprets information from the outside world and dictates our actions and reactions. Due to its critical role, any injury or impact to the brain is serious and can have wide-ranging physical and cognitive effects. 

Brain injuries can disrupt neural pathways, leaving lasting damage that affects a person’s ability to perform daily tasks, maintain relationships, and manage their own care. The complexity of the brain means that no two injuries are exactly alike, and recovery can be unpredictable. 

Potential Effects of Brain Injuries

The aftermath of a brain injury can be far-reaching, with patients experiencing a myriad of effects that can be temporary or last a lifetime. 

Some expected consequences include:

  • Cognitive impairments: These refer to difficulties with mental processes such as memory, attention, and the ability to solve problems. Individuals may struggle with remembering new information, concentrating on tasks, or making decisions.
  • Physical disabilities: Brain injuries can lead to physical challenges, including loss of coordination, muscle strength, or mobility. This can affect an individual's ability to perform daily activities or engage in physical work.
  • Emotional and psychological challenges: These involve issues such as mood swings, depression, and anxiety. Individuals might experience significant changes in their emotional state, leading to difficulties in managing relationships and personal well-being.
  • Changes in personality or behavior: Brain injuries can alter a person's behavior or personality, potentially leading to impulsiveness, aggression, or a noticeable change in social behavior. These changes can significantly impact an individual's personal and professional life.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Some of the most frequent causes of brain injuries include vehicular accidents, such as car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus accidents, and pedestrian and bicycle accidents. Additionally, falls, sports-related accidents, and workplace incidents can lead to brain injuries. 

Such accidents can violently shake the brain within the skull, leading to bruising, tearing, or swelling of brain tissue or even more severe outcomes such as bleeding and torn nerve fibers. Injuries can also occur when the body is thrown or impacted or when an object penetrates the skull.

The Necessity of Legal Representation in Brain Injury Cases

Navigating the aftermath of a brain injury not only involves dealing with significant health challenges but also coping with the financial implications. Compensation in brain injury cases typically addresses several key areas to support the victim's recovery and adaptation to life post-injury. 

This may include:

  • Medical expenses: Coverage for current and future medical treatment, rehabilitation services, and any specialized care or equipment required.
  • Lost wages: Compensation for income lost due to the inability to work in the short term or long term, including potential future earnings if the injury affects the victim's capacity to work or advance their career.
  • Pain and suffering: This accounts for the physical pain and emotional distress experienced by the victim, which can be significantly profound in cases involving permanent disability or chronic conditions.
  • Loss of quality of life: Compensation for changes in the victim’s ability to enjoy life, including limitations on family and social activities, hobbies, and other sources of personal fulfillment.
  • Home modification and care costs: For severe brain injuries, changes to the victim's home or vehicle may be necessary, as may in-home care or assistance with daily living activities.
  • Legal fees: Coverage of legal expenses incurred while pursuing the claim.

Attaining adequate compensation is critical for providing brain injury victims with the resources needed for optimal recovery and adjustment. It also recognizes the profound impact such injuries can have on an individual's life and livelihood.
