Contact our Ventura traumatic brain injury lawyer today, and let’s talk about how we can help you get through this difficult time.
What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?
In layman’s terms, a Traumatic Brain Injury happens when an external force hits your head hard enough to affect the normal functioning of your brain. This could be from a car accident, a slip and fall, or even a sports injury. It’s not just a bump on the head; it’s a condition that can change your life in an instant.
Like a concussion (which is a type of TBI), TBIs can range from mild to severe. Some TBI victims experience mild symptoms like headaches or momentary confusion, while others may face severe challenges like loss of coordination, memory issues, and even personality changes. The spectrum of symptoms can make a TBI difficult to diagnose, and the timing of a medical exam and the diagnostic tools used can be critical to identifying when a TBI has occurred. Getting prompt, appropriate treatment is essential to avoiding the worst effects of TBI, which can even be fatal if left untreated.
Legal Options in Ventura County for TBI Victims
For some, a TBI is a physical injury to deal with and get over, while for others, it’s a condition that will continue to affect every aspect of their lives. When we work with clients with catastrophic injuries like severe TBI, we engage with experts like occupational therapists, psychiatrists, economists and life care planners to work out a road map of the challenges that lie ahead. TBI can be expensive to treat in the present as well as the long term, and we work to create a complete package that demonstrates the need for comprehensive care and compensation. Matt Zavala’s time spent on the side of insurance defense as well as his abundant experience in trials, litigation and mediation helps him to see the best path forward to a successful, satisfactory result.
