You Can Be Compensated Even If You Are Partially At Fault
Some states do not allow traumatic brain injury victims to receive compensation if they were responsible for any aspect of their accident. Thankfully, California does not operate like this. Our state will let victims be compensated as long as they were not the primary cause of their brain injury.
This is known as pure comparative negligence and works as follows. If the courts determine that you were accountable for 10% of your brain injury, you can receive 90% of the available compensation. If you are found at fault for 40% of your brain injury, you can only receive 60% of the total compensation.
These percentage differences can add up to hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars. When pursuing a brain injury lawsuit, it pays to pick a team that has earned widespread acclaim for its ability to effectively persuade judges and jurors.
Our Attorneys Are Problem Solvers
The brain injury lawyers at our firm pride themselves on honest, straightforward communication with every San Diego client. They see themselves more as problem solvers than traditional attorneys. This allows them to think outside the box as they seek the best solution for your case.
How to Help Yourself
See the Doctor
Traumatic brain injuries have ramifications that can last for years to come. Even if you have had an initial doctor's appointment regarding your traumatic brain injury, it is wise to continue seeking medical attention. In addition to protecting your health, these visits generate crucial medical records our brain injury lawyers can use to seek maximum compensation. Conversely, failing to seek medical help can be construed as evidence that your traumatic brain injury was not that harmful.
Anything that could possibly be used as evidence by our traumatic brain injury lawyers should be saved, duplicated, and sent to us. This includes any photos, videos, or documents that revolve around the accident or any subsequent effects on behavior of the victim. Oftentimes, clients misplace or lose critical evidence. You never know when a phone or computer might crash. The safest way to duplicate evidence is by emailing copies to yourself so they can be accessed anywhere.
There is no benefit to discussing your accident, your brain damage, or anything else related to your case with anyone but your traumatic brain injury lawyers. Any statement you make, no matter how seemingly innocuous, can be taken out-of-context and used to minimize or even outright deny your claim. An insurance company representative may reach out to you seeking comment. The wisest thing you can do is refuse pressure to settle and refer them to us. We will do all the talking for you.
