At the May Firm, our California personal injury attorneys know that brain injuries result in far more than hospital bills and stress. There are confusion, sleepless nights, and an uncertain neurological recovery treatment plan. Brain injuries can leave someone with a lifetime of medical complications. Too many brain injury victims tell us that in addition to the medical difficulties, they are also saddled with expensive medical bills. Once they fall behind on one payment, they are harassed with debt collection calls. This is one of the many reasons it is so important to secure appropriate compensation for your injuries. You shouldn’t
be the person struggling to recover and pay sky-high

If you are a victim of a brain injury, you need a skilled, compassionate brain injury attorney who will put your best interest first. At the May Firm, we will go to battle for you.

For a brain injury attorney to effectively represent you, they must understand the specifics of what happened to you. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a trauma or injury to the head that interrupts normal functioning of the brain. TBIs can range in severity from mild to severe.
A mild TBI, commonly referred to as a concussion, may include a brief change in mental status or temporary unconsciousness, while a severe TBI may involve an extended period of unconsciousness. The effects of a TBI may include impaired cognitive, motor, and sensory capabilities as well as emotional difficulties. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and increased anxiety and depression are commonly associated with TBIs.
Moderate to severe TBIs typically require hospitalization, especially when the victim is unconscious for 30 minutes or more. Severe TBIs are associated with a loss of consciousness for over 24 hours and can leave a victim comatose. While in a coma, a TBI victim is unable to speak, move, or respond to commands. They are also unable to carry out basic functions on their own, such as using the bathroom or bathing thus requiring assistance from a medical professional. A TBI can leave a victim physically helpless.
Some comatose TBI victims never regain consciousness, leaving their loved ones without closure. The majority who wake from their coma suffer from
Victims of a severe TBI may experience some degree of paralysis or brain damage that impairs their ability to function normally, such as the development of a seizure disorder. Memory loss is a common side effect. Those who suffer from a severe TBI may develop more serious concentration and memory problems as time progresses.
The aftermath of a serious injury can be very scary for both the victim and their family. Sometimes they don’t know who to turn to for emotional support, and in the event that the injury was a result of someone else’s actions, the idea of seeking legal help to assist in the recovery process can be daunting. Without the proper support system, especially when dealing with the legal repercussions, a victim may find themselves victimized all over again and unable to access the total compensation they may be legally entitled to.
If you’ve been in an accident in California that resulted in head injuries, your most important step is getting immediate medical attention. The May Firm ensures that all of our clients have access to the medical care they need to achieve the best recovery possible while we do the heavy lifting to ensure that the people, companies, and insurance companies responsible for compensating your family take care of your medical bills and provide replacement for lost income and other costs associated with the injuries they inflicted on you. You don’t have to fight this next chapter of your life alone. We have extensive experience investigating and pursuing compensation to help you rebuild your life.
In 2010 there were approximately 2.5 million TBI cases reported across the United States. According to the CDC, TBI-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and deaths have increased overall since the early 2000s. Although the death rate fortunately decreased by 7% between 2000 and 2010, emergency room visits related to TBIs increased by 70%, while the rate of extended hospitalizations increased by 11%. TBIs contribute to approximately 30% of all injury deaths. Every day,

Car accidents are a leading cause of TBIs, making up 14.3% of all TBI cases. Over 40% of TBI cases are a result of falls, which disproportionately affect the elderly and children under 14.
Examples we’ve dealt with have included:
What may have started as a leisurely drive up the coast ended with a grandmother lying in a hospital bed, surrounded by worried loved ones.
After a stunt went wrong, a 16-year-old cheerleader was left with recurring migraines and short-term memory loss.
A person can become a victim of TBI in an instant
and should never be left to deal with the aftermath alone.
That’s where the May Firm steps in to protect head injury victims — ensuring they have the resources they need to recover.
Costs associated with TBIs exceed $76 billion annually. Victims who seek medical care for TBI, regardless of severity, can expect to receive a series of hefty medical bills — possibly for the rest of their lives. Extended hospitalization for moderate to severe cases will only increase the total expenses associated with your accident. Health insurance does not always provide adequate coverage. In addition to paying for an initial trip to the emergency room, victims of a TBI may find themselves on the hook for tests, prescription medication, long-term care, and follow-up medical visits. A $50 copay for an emergency room visit can snowball into tens of thousands of dollars of medical debt very quickly.
Beyond medical bills, head injuries can mean that a victim is unable to return to work. Many victims have to find new work that accommodates their cognitive limitations. Even if you fully recover to your previous normal, the recovery period will mean that your employer will find someone else to fill your position. Sadly, too many head injury victims in California find themselves in a new reality that involves lost or seriously reduced income, expensive medical bills, and regular trips to specialists for testing and treatment.
The average TBI victim is not prepared to cope with the lifestyle challenges and legal complexities associated with a brain injury. In California, the necessary aftercare is both extensive and expensive. In addition, the legal proceedings involved with recovering compensation for TBIs are complex and time consuming and can be very expensive. Fortunately, many of the costs associated with TBIs can be recovered. Any California resident who has suffered from a TBI or knows someone who has should consult with an attorney who specializes in brain injury. These attorneys will have access to the best resources for ensuring the most timely, cost-effective road to compensation.
