Santa Cruz Brain Injury Attorneys
Are you suffering from an accident-related brain injury?
We can help. Our Santa Cruz personal injury law firm has the experience and success with brain injury cases that you need.
There has been tremendous progress in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of brain injuries over the past decade. While the prognosis for victims of brain injury has improved remarkably, this is often still one of the most devastating and insidious of injuries and one which can have profound and sometimes life-long effects upon the quality of life for the patient.
The long-term effects and impacts of brain injuries can be extremely subtle and difficult to diagnose and substantiate. The patient and those closest to them may be only vaguely aware of subtle personality changes and impairments which can have profound impacts upon the patient’s family, loved ones, and social life. While the effects are difficult to prove, the decline in the patient’s quality of life can be substantial and long-term.

Retain a qualified attorney quickly
Because of the difficulty of diagnosing and substantiating the subtle effects of brain injury, health care providers, insurance companies, and lawsuit defendants will mount a vigorous defense against any such claims, taking full advantage of all of the difficulties faced by the injured person. Because of widespread ignorance and the stigma associated with head injuries, patients and loved ones themselves may be hesitant to pursue such claims vigorously, hoping to “put the experience behind them” and get on with their lives.
A qualified attorney with a substantial understanding of brain injuries should be retained to represent any brain injury patient. The attorney should also have a track record of experience in this fast changing field, access to the latest information, and expert witnesses to mount a vigorous prosecution of such claims. With the proper representation, brain injury victims can receive substantial and just compensation for their injuries. The process of pursuing these claims can also open many avenues and opportunities for treatment, counseling, and long-term improvement in the patient’s ability to excel in a normal and successful life.
