Brain injury from accident

Sadly, many brain injuries are preventable. And for many, others are to blame.

The brain is one of the most fragile and least understood parts of human physiology. And every year, up to 1.4 million Americans suffer from a traumatic brain injury, many of which were preventable and are due to the negligence of others.

Brain injury can occur due to a number of circumstances. Falls, motor vehicle accidents, and assaults are the most common causes of brain injury, which can involve open or closed head injuries. Symptoms of brain injury vary as widely as their causes. The patient can act confused or distracted; seizures, dizziness, or coma can occur.

80,000 of the annual 1.4 million brain injuries lead to permanent disability; 50,000 patients die each year of brain injuries.

Those patients who do survive can face a long road to recovery. Treatment is extremely expensive and time-consuming, and the patient may suffer lifelong personality and concentration changes and even be unfit for work or need extensive vocational rehabilitation. Clearly, the financial and emotional costs to a victim and their family are huge. But what about the individuals whose negligence, misconduct, or lack of care led to such injury?

Luckily, brain injury victims and their families are often qualified to file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court and seek financial compensation for their injuries.

Damages awarded in brain injury cases often involve the individual’s capacity to lead a normal life and earn a normal wage, and may include payment for ongoing medical treatment, surgical intervention, rehabilitation, and more.

Frequently asked questions on brain injury cases

The value of your case depends on many factors. Every San Diego brain injury case is different. One factor is the nature and extent of your injury. Some people heal faster than others. One person may heal in a week, while another may take six months, a year, or may never heal from the injury. Another factor is the amount of your medical bills, future medical bills and lost earnings, etc. Contact our office at (619) 444-2244 for accurate advice on the value of your case.

Our office works with a variety of doctors in the San Diego who can provide immediate medical treatment and defer payment until the case is finished.

You pay us only IF we recover compensation for you through a settlement with the insurance company or a verdict through the court. If we do not recover compensation for you, you do NOT have to pay us for our time.

This depends on the extent of your injury. Typically, a San Diego personal injury case takes anywhere from two to eight months. Sometimes, cases take longer if they are more complex or if a lawsuit is filed. See our personal injury lawsuit timeline page for all the details on how long your case may take.

Not necessarily. Sometimes you are far better off without filing a lawsuit. Our San Diego personal injury law office typically files a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company, if any. We then attempt to negotiate with the insurance company. If you are dissatisfied with the insurance company’s offer, we may decide to file a lawsuit.

  • Property damage
  • Past, current and future medical bills
  • Past, current and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment

Putting a monetary value to each of those is what brain injury attorneys do for their clients, and then we fight hard to attain you what you deserve. As in all San Diego personal injury cases, you are up against a behemoth in the insurance company which does not have your best interests in mind. They goal is to pay you as little as possible, and you are at a disadvantage if you try to take them on yourself. There is no need. That’s what we are here for. Let us fight the battle.

"Steve Holly, and Garrett are all exceptionally professional people to work with. I had a very serious and complicated Bodily Injury case, where it seemed like there was a new hurdle to overcome every month. I have no doubt that the Elia legal team worked tirelessly on creative solutions, which ultimately led to a victory in the courts. After this case consumed 2 years of my life, I am so relieved to have it over and done with. There are no words that could truly encapsulate my appreciation, and gratitude for this law firm. I would highly recommend this group to anyone in need of their services."
