Brain injuries are among the worst injuries that a person can have. These types of injuries can cause excruciating pain, possibly leave the injured person with short-term cognitive impairment, and sometimes can permanently impact a person’s quality of life.
In certain situations, brain injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence. If this true in your case, you may be entitled to significant compensation. The Los Angeles personal injury lawyers of OnderLaw, LLC can help you hold the responsible party accountable, and we can help you recover the compensation that you rightfully deserve.

Why Should I Hire A Brain Injury Lawyer?
Recovering from a brain injury is all-consuming. You’re likely worried about your health, about how long your recovery period will be, how you’re going to pay your medical bills, and when you can get back to work. You may also be fretting about handling calls from an insurance company, from medical providers, and maybe from lawyers representing the party responsible for your injuries.
One of the primary reasons you should hire a brain injury lawyer is so that you can stop worrying about everything that needs to be done. An experienced Los Angeles lawyer can take over all the calls and paperwork with the insurance company and with any lawyers on the other side.
A brain injury lawyer can sit down with you and discuss your prognosis for recovery, your potential future expenses, your current expenses, and any other losses, financial and emotional, that you may suffer. Your lawyer can reassure you about the process of obtaining full and fair compensation for the injuries you’ve been dealt.
Recovering from a brain injury requires a large sum of money. This money should not come out of your pocket. Instead, it should come out of the pocket of the responsible party. Unfortunately, the responsible party will likely try to shift the blame away from themselves to avoid paying you money. This is unfair, and this is unjust.
We recommend that you hire an experienced lawyer. A lawyer can help you prove which party is actually liable for your injury. A lawyer can help you secure the maximum compensation warranted for your injury. A lawyer can advise you on the best legal course of action to take.
Don’t go it alone. Do the smart thing and hire a lawyer.

Cases That OnderLaw, LLC Covers
Brain injuries can result from a variety of unfortunate accidents. Each brain injury is unique, and the severity ranges from mild to severe. OnderLaw, LLC covers all types of brain injuries, including:
A concussion is an impact to the head that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Concussions cannot always be seen with an imaging test. However, they are still serious injuries and need to be treated by a qualified healthcare professional.
- Brain Contusions
A brain contusion is a bruise on the brain tissue. They can be minor, or they can be quite severe. It is always recommended that you get professional medical treatment for this kind of injury. If not treated, a brain contusion can lead to leakage of small blood vessels in the brain or blood clots.
- Penetrating Brain Injuries
A penetrating brain injury, also known as an open head injury, is when an object pierces through the skull and strikes the brain. These types of brain injuries are at higher risk of infection compared to other brain injuries. Penetrating brain injuries can be caused by a slip and fall, a car accident, being struck on the head with an object, a stab wound, or a gunshot. These injuries require immediate medical care.
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when sudden trauma from an external force causes damage to the brain. There are three levels of TBI: mild, moderate, and severe. Injuries from TBI can cause temporary or permanent damage. Anyone with signs or symptoms of a TBI should receive medical attention immediately.
