Damages and Eligibility

In nearly all cases, individuals who suffer traumatic brain injury become dependent on others for care or require extended medical care; in all cases, their lives become irrevocably changed. Because many traumatic brain injury victims are unable to file suit on their own, the family of the victim can usually file suit on his or her behalf for damages. If it can be shown that the victim suffered injury due to another party's negligence, as a result of medical malpractice, or due to a dangerous premises or product, we can assist the victim's family in filing a claim to recover damages.

Though each case is unique, the brain injury attorney in Northern California working from our offices typically try to obtain compensation for medical bills, future long-term extended care expenses, loss of wages, loss of future long-term income, and pain and suffering, both on behalf of the victim and his or her family. At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, we are dedicated to customer service, and will work vigorously on your behalf to help ensure we obtain the best possible recovery.

Establishing Liability

To successfully recover damages, there must first be an establishment of fault. At our law firm, we work with experts in the field of medicine, engineering, and forensics to approach fault from an analytic and scientific perspective. This allows us to determine fault beyond doubt and establish the liable party or parties. Our experience with brain injury cases makes our firm uniquely capable of taking on such claims.

There are many different causes of traumatic brain injury and defendants in cases involving brain injury can vary widely, from individuals to corporations. Below are some examples of common causes of traumatic brain injury:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Sports Injuries
  • Construction Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Accident
  • Defective Product
  • Assault

Establishing liability is the first step in preparing a personal injury claim, and we will call upon all of our resources and experience to ensure this step is completed.

Victims' Rights

If an individual can be held accountable for your injury or that of a loved one, insurance coverage typically represents the avenue of recovery. If there are any third party defendants that can be held accountable for injuries, we will also pursue those options to help ensure that you are justly and fairly compensated for your suffering. In the event a large corporation is liable, you can rest assured that we have the resources, tools, and experience necessary to bring your claim to court and protect your rights - the right to financial compensation for qualitative and quantitative damages.

Defendant's Duty

Though the type of defendant can vary greatly in a brain injury case, in almost all cases there is some duty owed. In the case of a defective product or dangerous premises, there exists a duty on the part of the defendant to the customer or invitee to provide a safe product or premises; in medical malpractice cases, the defendant is typically a doctor or other healthcare professional who has a duty to abide by the accepted standard of care; and defendants in motor vehicle accidents have a duty to follow traffic laws and drive in a reasonable manner. Quite simply, if there is a duty owed and the defendant fails to abide by it, then the potential for legal accountability exists.
