There are several reasons why you may develop a traumatic brain injury. Some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:
There are two different types of TBIs. They are:
The amount and types of compensation available to you depend heavily on the severity of the injuries you sustained. The most common types of compensation awarded to victims suffering from TBIs include:
When someone acts with no regard for the safety of others, or acts in a way that intentionally puts others at risk, their actions are negligent. To prove negligence in California, you’ll need to show, through evidence, that the at-fault party was negligent. Then you’ll have to prove that their negligence caused the accident and that you were injured in the accident. If you can prove these things, then the at-fault party can be held liable.
When you hire OnderLaw , your lawyer can investigate the accident, gather evidence, and build a strong case to show that the other party was liable and should provide compensation for your injuries. Don’t go it alone. Get a OnderLaw lawyer on your team now.
In California, the statute of limitations on most personal injury lawsuits is two years from the date of injury. If you wish to file a claim against a city, county, or California government organization, the statute of limitations is then six months from the date of injury.
Should you fail to file a personal injury lawsuit within the time frame allotted, your case will be thrown out, and you will miss out on recovering the damages owed to you through the court system. It is important to have legal representation for this very reason, as a skilled and experienced lawyer can keep you aware of deadlines and other important details regarding your case so that you can recover the full amount of compensation owed to you for the damages you suffered in your accident.
In the United States, people develop TBIs resulting from accidents of all kinds every day. Here are some California statistics:
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 61,000 traumatic brain injury-related deaths across the United States in 2019. That comes to about 166 traumatic brain injury-related deaths each day.
Data collected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that 244,000 non-fatal work-related accidents occurred due to slips, trips, and falls—three of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries across the United States.
