Sacramento Brain Injury Lawyer
Severe damage to your brain is among the most traumatic, life-altering injuries you can suffer. While simple fractures or sprains present the possibility of a speedy recovery, your life after a brain injury may never be the same. Hospital bills quickly pile up and after your hospital stay, the real work begins. Adjusting to your new life in the aftermath of a brain injury can be tremendously difficult. As you seek to adjust and move on after your injury, you need a lawyer to ensure your rights are protected in and fought for in court. A personal injury settlement helps keep you afloat in these trying times, and you deserve fair compensation from all liable parties.
At Amerio Law Firm, we have spent more than ten years passionately advocating for our clients. Our reputation as a top-tier California law firm speaks for itself, and no legal team is more prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve. Whether your lawsuit is against your employer, the owner of a small business, or a large corporation, no suit is too large or too small for our skilled attorneys to manage.
Common Brain Injuries
In a variety of industries and workplaces, brain injuries are all too common. This is especially true if those responsible are guilty of ignoring proper safety procedures and regulations. Americans throughout the country are familiar with concussions in contact sports, but brain injuries occur outside of the sports world as well. Common brain injuries our law firm has experience with include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Anoxic (Lack of Oxygen) Event
- Brain Hematoma
- Skull Fracture
A skilled, experienced personal injury attorney can potentially recover thousands of dollars or more. Compensation for your medical expenses is only the first step. In order to fully recover damages for your pain and suffering, emotional and physical, you need to hire a Sacramento brain injury lawyer with a wealth of understanding and expertise.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury, you likely have questions about your legal options, and whether or not an attorney can help you. We have included the answers to a few common questions below, but if you do not see your question listed here, please contact us at (916) 419-1111 to discuss your specific situation.
What are the main types of brain injuries?
Brain injuries are usually separated into two rather broad categories, acquired brain injuries and traumatic brain injuries (or TBI). An acquired brain injury is generally caused by the deprivation of oxygen to the brain through anoxia (total oxygen deprivation which kills cells and often results in death) or hypoxia (partial oxygen deprivation, which may also kill cells and may result in death). Traumatic brain injuries are usually caused by a severe impact including concussions, contusions, penetration of the skull by an object, or diffuse axonal injury (in which the brain is shaken, and structures are torn). Individuals who suffer from serious falls or high impact accidents like car accidents often suffer serious injuries like traumatic brain injuries, which can have a lasting impact on their life and livelihood.
Can I sue if a brain injury caused serious impairment?
An injury to the brain can have a lasting impact on a person’s life and can seriously affect their ability to enjoy the things they once loved to do. While a broken bone may heal and you may be able to move on with your life as you used to, a brain injury may affect your cognitive functions, causing serious and lifelong impairment. People who suffer traumatic brain injuries may find that they are no longer able to hold jobs they once held, may suffer emotional outbursts and trauma, and may have impaired movement. If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury caused by someone else’s negligent actions, you may be eligible to sue and recover compensation that can help you with the costs of therapy and long-term assistance.
Why should I hire an attorney?
Traumatic brain injury claims are no small matter. The injured individual has often suffered a serious and severe injury, and their life has undoubtedly been altered forever. It is critical to hire an attorney that you trust to help you recover the fair and just compensation that you are owed, and hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. While an attorney cannot undo the actions that harmed you, they can help you get the justice you deserve.
