A brain injury can be a life-changing event. If you have suffered from a brain injury in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you’re probably wondering why this happened to you. If your injury was significant, you’re probably also watching medical bills come in the door and wondering how in the world you’re going to pay for them, especially if you’ve had to take off work because of your injury.

If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay any of the expenses associated with your injury.

The Mayo Clinic sets out the following situations as causes for traumatic brain injuries:
While well protected by the skull that encases it, the brain is nonetheless subject to a number of injuries. The Johns Hopkins Medical website lists the following types of injuries:
Whether your compensation comes via a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company or through an award from a lawsuit, multiple factors are considered when determining what your compensation should be. You may be eligible for “damages” for each of your losses.
Your losses may be either the economic costs or the noneconomic costs associated with your injury. Economic costs are those that have a fixed value, such as medical bills or prescription receipts. Noneconomic costs are the intangible losses you endure from the accident, such as pain and suffering or the emotional results of disfigurement.
You may be eligible for compensation for any of these:
In order to obtain compensation for your traumatic brain injury, you must show that someone else caused it. You’ll need proof that the at-fault party failed in his obligation to take care to keep you reasonably safe, a duty required of all California citizens. Once you’ve shown that, you must also prove that their actions caused the accident, that you were injured in the accident, and that you actually suffered losses in the accident. If you can prove all these things, you’ll most likely be able to get money for your injuries.
In California, you’re allowed two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. If you wait to file your lawsuit until after this statute of limitations expires, the court will likely dismiss your case, and you will lose the opportunity to pursue compensation through the courts. Two years seems like a long time, but if the insurance company drags out settlement negotiations and you’re not careful, you could miss it. That’s why you need OnderLaw. We will mind the deadlines and make sure that, should negotiations fail, we have prepared to file a lawsuit in time to protect your interests.
In 2019, Moreno Valley had 13 fatal traffic accidents. Twenty-one vehicles were involved in these crashes, and four involved a drunk person. Pedestrians accounted for six of the deaths.
You have a brain injury caused by someone else. You want what is reasonably owed you for your injury. Unfortunately, the person who hurt you will have insurance companies and defense lawyers supporting them. They will question whether you were actually harmed by that person. They will try to make it look like it is all your fault.
