Should Someone With a Brain Injury Hire an Attorney?


Yes. Those who suffered a brain injury or who must care for an injured loved one may:

  • Have extremely limited time: Many of our clients must focus on recovery and have little time for anything else. Anyone who suffered a brain injury or cares for someone who has may lack the time to pursue a lawsuit without a lawyer.
  • Contend with physical limitations: In addition to time constraints, those with a brain injury may be physically limited. The treatment regimen for a brain injury can be extensive, and rest is among the treatment recommendations. It is generally unwise to try and handle a serious legal case while recovering from a traumatic brain injury.
  • Struggle psychologically and emotionally: A brain injury typically requires the victim to avoid stress, intense cognitive activities, or any other circumstance that can compromise recovery. Handling an insurance claim or lawsuit may be stressful, cognitively taxing, and generally unsuitable for someone with a brain injury.
  • Benefit immensely from hiring an experienced California brain injury lawyer: For each of these reasons, hiring an attorney from Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, LLP may benefit you. Our firm will take on the responsibility of completing your case. You just focus on recovering from your brain injury or helping a loved one in need.

Working With Medical Experts to Assess Your Damages

No two brain injuries are exactly alike. That is why we rely on medical experts when handling cases like yours. Our team will collect medical records, testimony from your doctors, medical bills, and any other documentation that helps prove your damages.

Gathering Evidence of Liable Parties’ Negligence

We will collect all evidence that relates to your case. The types of evidence we pursue will depend on how your brain injury happened. If you were in a motor vehicle accident, for example, we will speak with witnesses and seek video footage of the collision.

What Are Recoverable Damages for Brain Injury Victims in California?

What Are Recoverable Damages for Brain Injury Victims in California?

Those with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) might pay thousands of dollars more in healthcare costs than those with other types of injuries. While medical expenses will certainly be among your recoverable damages, a brain injury in California can affect every aspect of your life.

An attorney from Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos can seek compensation for:

Medical Costs

Caring for a brain injury can be tricky, requiring long-term treatment and monitoring. Each medical visit, imaging service, and other interaction with the healthcare system generally costs money. Your attorney will identify the total cost of your injury-related medical care.

Pain and Suffering

A brain injury’s ability to cause pain and suffering is immense.

Those with significant brain injuries may experience:

  • Personality changes
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions

Your pain and suffering may arise from the brain injury itself, as well as the events that caused the injury. For example, a motor vehicle accident that results in a brain injury may leave the victim with traumatic memories. We will consider the context of your brain injury when detailing your damages.

If a brain injury causes long-term disabilities, you may need:

  • In-home caregiving services
  • Special equipment to aid in your recovery
  • A relative to help care for you, which may come at a personal and professional cost to the relative
  • Supervised or in-patient care
  • Other items and services specific to your disability

A disabling brain injury will also have professional consequences for the person with the injury.

Professional Damages

Those with brain injuries may:

  • Miss work for a brief or long period of time
  • Be unable to earn income
  • Lose earning power, which may occur when a brain injury victim reduces their working hours
  • Lose opportunities to earn bonuses and promotions
  • Lose the fulfillment they get from their work

One’s inability to work may have a professional domino effect. Our team will determine the total professional cost of your brain injury in California.
