Santa Ana Brain Injuries Lawyers


Brain Injury Attorneys in Santa Ana.

We Are Here To Help You With Your Brain Injury Accident Problems.

Of all the types of serious injuries that a person may sustain in an accident, perhaps none is potentially more devastating than a traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries can result in permanent physical disability along with severe cognitive, mental, and emotional changes. Because of the permanent nature of brain injuries, obtaining fair compensation from the party responsible for an injury is critical. And because brain injuries are one of the most challenging types of personal injury cases to litigate, choosing a skilled lawyer to handle your case is essential. The Santa Ana accident attorneys at Hess & Nghiem never turn away a case because it is overly challenging, complicated, or difficult.

In every brain injury case we handle, we take the time to thoroughly understand your case, how your injuries affect you, and what kind of care you will need in the future. Our attorneys work with experts to determine the physical, mental, and emotional challenges an injury presents, and also the expected lifelong and long-term care costs, lost wages, and other economic damages.

For victims of traumatic brain injuries, the attorneys at Hess & Nghiem are advocates. In addition to legal representation to victims of brain injuries, our attorneys and professional staff provide support, resources, and valuable information. We understand that brain injuries do not just affect the victim but also their entire family. We take a compassionate approach to help our clients, but we are aggressive in the courtroom and committed to accepting nothing less than full and fair, maximum compensation.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can happen dozens of different ways, ranging from motor vehicle accidents to near-drownings and electrical shocks. A TBI may result from a closed head injury or an open head injury, or oxygen deprivation, and exposure to toxic chemicals. Regardless of whether the brain injury is the result of a car accident, SUV rollover accident, pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident, construction accident or any other accident, if someone else’s negligent, reckless or careless actions caused the accident, they are responsible and financially liable for your injuries and pain and suffering.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

It is estimated that 1.4 million people suffer some form of a traumatic brain each year in the United States. Statistically, men are more likely than women to suffer a brain injury. Types of brain injuries include concussions, contusions, coup-contrecoup injuries, skull fractures, diffuse axonal injuries, penetration injuries, and acquired brain injuries. Every brain injury is different and unique may affect one person differently than another.

Compensation for Brain Injuries

At Hess & Nghiem, we know that many accidents resulting in traumatic brain injuries are caused by negligent, reckless, or careless actions of others. Victims of accidents caused by others may be entitled to compensation for their injuries, including all medical care costs, future expenses, lost earnings, loss of earning capacity, and emotional pain and suffering.

    I was referred to Phil and Ed by a good friend after my two prior lawyers dropped the ball on my case. I was viciously assaulted at a bar. Phil and Ed took my case on and it was night and day. They stood up for me and kept in regular contact. I never had to guess what was going on with my case. They conducted a thorough investigation and collected crucial evidence that helped prove my case. Initially, the bar refused to take responsibility but eventually the bar relented after the job Phil and Ed did. Ultimately, the case resolved favorably for much more than I expected. Thanks so much again Phil an Ed!

    Not backing down, Phil and Ed pressed forward and never once compromised our position. After the insurance company kept increasing their offer and wanting us to negotiate, Phil and Ed refused to relent and accept anything less than what we initially asked. Basically, their response each time to the insurance company was pay our original demand or we are going to trial. It worked! Eventually, after bidding against themselves, the insurance company finally offered to pay the original amount we wanted. I couldn’t be more impressed with the way Phil and Ed handled my case. They really stood up for me and took on a case that was by no means a simple one. Thanks again fellas!

    I can’t say enough great things about Phil Nghiem. He was on my case from the minute I called him. He got things handled from day one immediately and made me feel supported and taken care of. His office staff was the same way, replied to every email immediately and addressed all of my concerns. I got into a car accident and called him, and I am SO GLAD I did. He got me the compensation I was entitled to and fought for me and my well being the whole way through. He took are of everything so that I just had to worry about getting my health back. He and his staff really care about YOU and do not treat you like another name in the book. They help you step by step and always keep you in the loop. I can’t thank him enough for helping me through this excruciating ordeal.

    I’d like to start off by saying that Phil is incredibly passionate about what he does, he’s very kind-hearted, and he genuinely cares for his clients. I was struck by a hit-and-run driver, who was fleeing from the police in a stolen vehicle with no insurance. Given the circumstances of my car accident, Phil was able to negotiate an incredible sum to be paid out by my insurance. It made my day when he was able to share the news. Most attorneys would have settled earlier in the case for significantly less. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and the end of my investigation was a success. Thank you again Phil, I am eternally grateful for everything that you’ve done for me.

    PS. Phil’s office is quite the drive for me, but he’s very accommodating and we managed to make things work with EASE. So don’t hesitate to contact him regardless of where you’re from because he’ll take care of you.

    I was involved in a rear end accident and was referred to Phil from my chiropractor. Honestly I was nervous to take on an attorney because I was already overwhelmed by everything involving the accident but Phil really put me at ease. He took the time to explain things to me in a way I could understand and wasn’t pushy at all for me to hire him. I’m really glad I chose Phil because I literally didn’t have to worry about anything after that meeting. He set me up with one of his associates named Bri and she was always so quick to respond whenever I had questions. On top of that they worked hard to reduce my other fees and got me a nice settlement too! I’m thankful for all the help they provided and will definitely use them again if I ever need it.

    I’m so glad I hired Phil to help me after my car crash. My car was totaled after a driver ran a red light and struck me. For days, I didn’t have a car to get to work and school. Finally, I decided to hire an attorney and eventually found Phil. He immediately got to work. My accident happened at an intersection where there was a restaurant. Phil personally went out to the restaurant and obtained video footage that captured the crash showing that I was not at-fault. I couldn’t believe that he actually did this. He then helped me get into a rental and get medical treatment. I am completely satisfied with Phil. He truly went above and beyond to get me through this difficult time in my life.
