Brain Injury Attorneys in Santa Ana
We Are Here To Help After Your Brain Injury Accident
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 professionals 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 in 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.
