Should I Hire a Lawyer After I Have Been Diagnosed with a TBI, or When I Detect Symptoms?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can have severe and long-term effects. If your TBI was caused by the negligence or recklessness of someone else, you have the right to pursue a financial settlement by filing a civil lawsuit. Our firm fights for justice on behalf of injured clients. Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive compensation for medical bills, disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. We can discuss your options and walk you through the legal process as you begin to heal.

Some people wonder when they should seek legal counsel. Should they wait until they have been officially diagnosed with a TBI by their doctor, or should they hire representation as soon as they begin to notice symptoms? In general, the earlier you obtain legal assistance, the better chance you have of pursuing a favorable outcome. California laws impose a statute of limitations on personal injury claims, which is 2 years from the date of injury. This means you only have 2 years to file a lawsuit to pursue compensation.

If you have been in an accident and have started to notice symptoms of a brain injury, it is important to seek experienced representation right away. An attorney can analyze your situation, determine an effective legal strategy, and gather evidence to support your case. Furthermore, a lawyer can work with your doctor to understand your prognosis, and can provide advice on the best course of action to take.
