Yes, you may be able to sue the person who caused your accident. An injury to the brain can be one of the worst types of injuries. Victims may never fully recover, or if they do, the recovery process may be long, painful, and expensive. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.
Normally, in order to file a lawsuit against the wrongdoer, you must be able to prove that the injuries you suffered were the direct result of another person or company’s negligent actions. First, you must prove that the wrongdoer owed you a duty of care – for example, drivers owe other drivers on the roads a duty to drive safely. Next, you must show that the wrongdoer breached that duty, and that the breach of the duty was a cause of your injuries. Finally, you must be able to prove that you suffered damages as a result.
Brain injuries can be caused by a number of causes. Automobile accidents are the largest causes of traumatic brain injuries in people between the ages of 15 and 44. Workplace accidents are also a large cause of brain injuries. Birth injuries can commonly lead to long-term brain injuries. Finally, medical malpractice can sometimes result in brain injuries, or in a brain injury becoming worse.
If you have suffered from a traumatic brain injury, you may be entitled to compensation from the person or company who caused your injuries. You may be entitled to money for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. Call me, Conal Doyle, Los Angeles personal injury attorney, at 310-385-0567. I can help.
