San Luis Obispo Brain Injury Lawyers
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, estimates that in the U.S., 1.7 million people sustain a brain injury each year. Other facts about traumatic brain injury, or TBI:
- TBI is a contributing factor in about one third of all injury-related deaths in the U.S.
- Adults 75 or older have the highest rates of TBI-related hospitalization and death
- Even mild concussions fall within the brain injury category
Traumatic brain injury is a result of excessive outer force upon the brain. A brain injury may happen at home, work or elsewhere. Brain injuries may result from slipping and falling in a store that is open to the public. If the fall was due to a negligent act on the part of the store, such as faulty flooring, the owner of the store is liable for negligence. The injured party may sue the store in a civil lawsuit, seeking compensation for medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. If you experienced a brain injury as a result of another’s negligence, you should obtain experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive legal representation from a law firm with a proven track record. The Ernst Law Group is a plaintiff’s rights law firm that represents injured clients. The Ernst Law Group has recovered millions of dollars for their clients in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.
Treatment for Brain Injuries:
Brain injuries require expensive treatment. Treatment generally includes:
- Extensive, continual, long term medical care
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Psychiatric and/or psychological treatment
- Intensive motor skill therapy
- Other treatments for maintenance and recuperation
Medical treatment for brain injuries can easily run into the high hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars because treatment may be required for the remainder of the patient’s life. It is essential to obtain compensation from the parties that caused the accident in order to have the resources to recover as fully as possible. It is also important to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions. The Ernst Law Group is a premier law firm that knows how to make the responsible party pay for their negligent conduct.
