Brain Injury Lawyer Serving the San Fernando Valley

San Fernando Valley Catastrophic Injury Attorney - (818) 783-8446

Have you suffered a serious head injury? If you experience a blunt trauma to the head or neck region, there is always a high risk that you could suffer a concussion or hemorrhage. With a forceful jolt to the head, the brain could swell and come into contact with the skull. Any intracranial pressure is very dangerous and could result in brain damage. In more severe brain injury cases, the victims can end up in a coma and sustain permanent brain damage. Worst case scenario, the brain injury victim is stuck in a vegetative state or suffers wrongful death. If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may be eligible for restitution.

Brain injuries are of a sensitive nature because you can suffer permanent brain damage which could affect the rest of your life. After suffering a brain injury, spinal cord injury or any other catastrophic injury, do not hesitate to speak with a San Fernando Valley personal injury attorney from the Law Offices of Joel Parker.

Nothing can undo the unfortunate damage that has already been done, but you can seek justice and work to recover fair compensation. If your injury could have been prevented, allow my firm to help you hold the negligent party responsible for their actions.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

The brain is surrounded by water and it enclosed in a protective case which is referred to as the cranium. When someone is hit in the head with blunt force, the cranium could be damaged, or the brain could swell which could cause serious problems. Here at the Law Offices of Joel Parker, we handle a wide variety of head and brain injury cases including:

  • A hard hit to the head
  • Head trauma due to a motor vehicle accident

  • Closed head injuries
  • Open head injuries
  • Severe cuts and lacerations
  • Cracked skull or damaged cranium
  • Baby brain injuries due to Shaken baby syndrome
  • Head injuries sustained in bicycle accidents
  • Head trauma from slipping and falling

The Consequences of a Brain Injury

The brain is the control center of the body- it is responsible for sending out messages to the rest of the body on how to move, react, coordinate, speak and basically any other motor skill that needs to be performed. When the brain is damaged, it could result in loss of motor functions and leave the victim in a coma or a vegetative state where they need to be cared for by others. Brain injuries can also lead to memory loss, headaches, migraines, and a change in social behavior. The most common brain injuries include:

  • A fractured skull
  • Head Concussion
  • Head Contusion
  • Subdural Hematoma
  • Epidural Hematoma
  • Anoxic brain injuries
  • DAI, or Diffuse Axonal Injuries
