Bamieh & Erickson - Southern California Brain Injury Attorneys
If you or someone in your family has suffered a traumatic brain injury or closed head wound in a motor vehicle accident or fall at a construction site, contact the brain injury liability attorneys at Bamieh & Erickson in Ventura. Our experience with the proof of damages in serious accident cases of all kinds can represent a significant advantage in your overall compensation.
In any accident case involving injuries to the head-even apparently minor injuries-we work with forensic neurologists and psychologists to make sure that no component of your loss is overlooked. Accidents involving closed head injuries, such as concussive trauma, might result in subtle brain problems or delayed onset trauma that will not be discovered in the course of emergency treatment, and might only be noticed months after the incident by someone who knows the victim very well.
The symptoms of closed head wounds can include changes in habit or mood, cognitive changes, memory loss, and changes in personality. These can often be linked to axonal tears within the brain tissue due to rotational forces characteristic of motor vehicle accidents, or coup-countercoup injuries, when the brain effectively suffers blows both at the point of blunt-force impact, and at the opposite point of the skull.
Traumatic brain injuries are rated on a scale from mild to severe, depending on the symptoms, their duration, and the prospects for a complete recovery. We can represent clients in brain damage cases ranging from temporary incapacity to permanent disability. We also represent victims of hypoxic or anoxic acquired brain injury, whether due to near-drowning in a swimming pool or exposure to toxins that interfere with the delivery of oxygen to the brain.
Proof of the extent and severity of any given brain injury can be difficult, but our experience with highly qualified medical specialists, together with our ability to present the evidence of your injuries in a form that juries can understand, can give your claim for damages an excellent chance for full compensation.
