Menlo Park Brain Injury

There is no such thing as a mild brain injury. The impacts of a brain injury can be long-term and life-changing for the injured person and his or her family. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury in an accident or incident caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation under a personal injury claim.

Every brain injury is unique, affecting each person in different ways. Personal injury cases involving brain injuries are complex medical matters that require skilled and experienced legal representation.

We calculate the cost of our clients’ past, ongoing, and future medical care, loss of earning capacity, and other damages so that we know the amount it will take to cover all of your accident-related losses and expenses.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are typically the result of sustaining a significant blow to the head, neck, or torso. They can also occur as the result of inhaling toxins and oxygen deprivation. Bicycle, pedestrian, automobile, and motorcycle accidents are common causes of brain injuries. Other types of brain injury cases that we frequently see in our practice include slip and falls, swimming pool accidents, and medical malpractice injuries.

How Our Attorneys Can Help

We know that our clients rely on our representation to help them secure the compensation they need to move forward after sustaining a brain injury. We pursue maximum financial recovery for our clients because we know that monetary compensation will help them pay for medical care, lost income, rehabilitation expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other emotional losses.

In addition to proving the injuries and damages sustained, we also conduct investigations to determine fault and liability issues. Our clients do not have to field calls from insurance adjusters who want to pay as little as possible to settle their claims because we take care of all communication and settlement negotiations. Our attorneys are known for their record of success at trial because we are not afraid to go to court when adjusters do not agree to reasonable settlement terms.
