Some common signs and symptoms of a brain injury are:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Irritability
  • Word-finding difficulties
  • Concentration problems
  • Difficulty multi-tasking

A car accident can cause the sudden acceleration or deceleration of the head, resulting in a brain injury. Even if a person does not hit their head on anything or lose consciousness, they can suffer a brain injury. It is important that they are evaluated by a doctor for blurred vision, dizziness, memory or mood problems, inability to concentrate, and changes to the size of their pupils. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or any others that you feel are strange or out of the ordinary, seek medical attention immediately. Our clients should never hesitate to receive medical care, as we are often able to secure care from medical providers on lien, which means that the medical provider agrees to wait to be paid until your case resolves.

How Much Compensation Will You Get for a Brain Injury?

Brain injury lawsuits, like any other catastrophic injury claim, often require a significantly hirer settlement in order to cover the various damages associated with such a serious injury. While the exact amount will vary from one case to the next, our lawyers will seek to obtain maximum compensation for you for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Lost wages
  • Ongoing medical costs
  • Damaged property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium or companionship
  • Emotional distress

If you have lost a loved one as a result of a serious brain injury, our team will help you pursue a wrongful death claim, which can help cover funeral and burial expenses, in addition to some of the above damages.

How Long Does a Brain Injury Claim Take?

A typical brain injury lawsuit will take 1-2 years to resolve. This is because these types of cases tend to be complex. However, no two brain injury lawsuits are alike, so your case may take more or less time to reach a settlement. This will also depend on whether or not your case goes to trial or is resolved pre-trial. If you want a better understanding of how long your case will take you can discuss your claim in a free, no-obligation consultation with our team of brain injury attorneys in Long Beach.
