Proving Liability After a Brain Injury Occurs

Proving liability in brain injury cases is often a complex and detailed process. At Fisher & Talwar, we understand the importance of a thorough investigation to establish fault. Here is how we approach proving liability:

  • Gathering evidence. We start by collecting all relevant evidence, including accident reports, medical records, witness statements, and any available video footage. This helps us build a thorough picture of how the injury occurred.
  • Expert testimony. We work with trusted medical experts, accident reconstruction specialists, and other professionals to provide testimony that supports your claim. 
  • Demonstrating negligence. Proving liability involves showing that the other party was negligent. This means demonstrating that they had a duty of care, breached that duty, and caused the injury as a result. For example, in a car accident, we would need to show that the other driver was at fault due to reckless or distracted driving.
  • Documenting damages. We meticulously document all your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any future costs related to your injury. This comprehensive approach ensures we pursue the full compensation you deserve.

How Brain Injuries Occur in and Around Burbank

Brain injuries in Burbank can result from various incidents, many of which are preventable. Understanding the common causes can help you stay vigilant and seek timely legal assistance if needed:

  • Car accidents. Vehicle crashes – including truck accidents – are a leading cause of TBIs in Burbank. Whether due to high-speed impacts, rear-end collisions, or rollovers, the force of a crash can result in significant head trauma.
  • Slip and fall accidents. Falls are particularly common among the elderly and in workplaces. Slippery floors, uneven surfaces, and lack of proper signage can lead to serious head injuries.
  • Sports injuries. Athletes, particularly those who play contact sports like football, soccer, and hockey, are at high risk of concussions and other brain injuries. Proper safety equipment and protocols are crucial in preventing these injuries.
  • Workplace accidents. In industries such as construction and manufacturing, falls from heights, getting struck by objects, and machinery accidents can cause traumatic brain injuries. 
  • Assaults and violence. Physical assaults and violent crimes can also lead to brain injuries. These incidents may involve blunt force trauma or penetration injuries that result in significant damage to the brain.

Brain Injury Compensation in Burbank

Victims of brain injuries in Burbank could be entitled to compensation designed to help them recover and manage their new circumstances. At Fisher & Talwar, we strive to secure comprehensive compensation for our clients:

  • Medical costs. This includes all past, present, and future medical expenses related to the injury, such as ER visits, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical care.
  • Lost wages and future earnings. Brain injuries, along with severe spinal cord injuries, can prevent you from working temporarily or permanently. Compensation can also include the wages you have lost and the potential future earnings you are unable to achieve due to your injury.
  • Pain and suffering. Any physical pain, psychological issues, and emotional distress caused by a brain injury can be overwhelming. Compensation for pain and suffering helps address these non-economic damages.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life. Brain injuries can significantly alter your ability to enjoy daily activities and hobbies. Compensation for loss of enjoyment of life recognizes these profound changes.
  • Home modifications and assistive devices. Some brain injury victims may need modifications to their homes to accommodate their new needs, such as wheelchair ramps or specialized equipment. Compensation can cover these necessary adjustments.
  • Long-term care. Severe brain injuries may require long-term or even lifelong care. This can include in-home care, assisted living facilities, or nursing homes. Ensuring coverage for these expenses, if they apply to your situation, is vital for your well-being.

How Long Do You Have to File Your Claim?

In California, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim, including brain injury cases, is two years from the day the incident happened. It is crucial to act quickly to preserve your right to seek compensation. Failing to file your brain injury claim within this specific time frame could result in you losing the chance of recovering compensation for your losses.

In addition to the overall statutory time frame for filing the claim in civil court, please know that insurance carriers have their own, often vague, internal reporting deadlines. Please work with your attorney soon so you can get the claim filed and not have to worry about the case getting dismissed.
