Brain Injury Lawyer Serving Elk Grove

Knowledgeable and Compassionate Brain Injury Representation in the Elk Grove Community

Were you or a loved one injured in an accident, resulting in brain trauma? A traumatic brain injury is one of the more severe and debilitating forms of accident injury.  These serious injuries affects hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. Over the past 33 years, I have worked closely with the Elk Grove community, assisting victims and families in coping with the traumatic effects of serious brain injuries.

Brain injuries can be caused by any type of accident. They are impossible to predict and difficult to treat. Recent advances in healthcare have allowed doctors to detect and treat traumatic brain injuries faster than ever before. However, these injuries remain debilitating and life-altering for both victims and their families.

California Brain Injuries

California personal injury law is designed to make or at least attempt to make victims whole again through monetary compensation for injuries. Traumatic brain injuries often are associated with extremely long recovery times, surgeries, medical procedures, countless doctors’ visits, therapy, and more. Past and future medical expenses can rise astronomically if you suffer this type of injury.  Head injuries also frequently cause severe emotional distress, pain and suffering, and a diminished quality of life.

California law requires certain individuals to maintain insurance in case of an accident. For example, car drivers must maintain car insurance at state mandated minimum levels. Other parties like employers and construction companies also are required to maintain workers’ compensation insurance in case employees are injured on the job. Insurance coverage assists at-fault parties with compensating victims for damages sustained in an accident, which are expenses at-fault parties likely would not be able to cover without the assistance of insurance. Additionally, Uninsured Motorist Insurance is often available when the responsible party has no insurance or not enough insurance.
