When someone suffers a serious brain injury, it doesn’t just affect him or her; it affects his or her family, friends, coworkers and everyone else who knows that person. Brain injuries take a terrible toll on the victim’s ability to interact with others, process information, control emotions, provide for his or her family and enjoy the simple things that the rest of us take for granted every day. These injuries also take victims’ independence and force many to rely on others for the rest of their lives. We can’t undo the damage or turn back the clock, but we can use our experience, skills and knowledge of the law to help brain injury victims receive the care they need. As San Bernardino brain injury lawyers, our job is to explain the law, build an effective case for each client and work hard to help him or her receive damages in a court award or settlement in order to get the necessary care.

Brain Injuries Affect More Than One Million People Every Year
Statistics from the Brain Injury Association of America are shocking in their scope and grim in their prognosis for brain injury victims. Around 1.4 million people in this country suffer a brain injury each year, and these injuries result in the following:
Please bear in mind that these are broad numbers that don’t begin to tell the whole story. The story behind the numbers is that at least 3.17 million people live every day with a lifelong need for assistance to perform everyday activities such as getting dressed, managing their affairs and caring for themselves and their families. Even more distressing is that an estimated 40 percent of these victims are not getting the help and care they need on a regular basis.
If someone’s negligence caused you or a loved one to suffer a serious brain injury, that person can be held liable for damages that can help defray the costs of rehabilitative and ongoing care. Pursuing these damages isn’t about getting even; it’s about justice and getting the help you need now and for the future.
