    Preventable medical errors are the nation's third leading cause of death, killing up to 440,000 Americans every year. You can make a difference on Election Day by voting YES on Prop 46. It will save lives by:
    • Drug and alcohol testing doctors just like airline pilots, bus drivers, and other public safety professions.
    • Requiring doctors to check an existing state database to crack down on prescription drug abuse.
    • Providing access to justice for medical negligence by adjusting the cap on pain and suffering to account for four decades of inflation.
    The insurance industry has vowed to spend over $60 million to defeat Prop 46. We are on the side of the patients, not the insurance companies.

    Personal Dedication for Your Brain Injury Case

    Personal injury law seeks to return a victim to his physical and financial condition prior to an accident or injury. Brain injury affects approximately 100,000 people each year in the United States and plays a significant role in an individual’s ability to perform daily tasks. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in Los Angeles, the Haggai Law Firm can provide personalized counsel backed by years of personal injury experience.

    What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

    Brain injury occurs when the head meets a hard surface. There are two types of TBI: open and closed. An open head injury occurs when the skull is fractured. Closed TBIs happen when the brain is injured, but the skull is intact. TBIs result from falls, crashes, assaults or contact sports. People suffer TBIs in car and motorcycle accidents, slips and falls or work-related mistakes.

    The symptoms of TBI include severe headache, confusion, nausea, dizziness and fatigue. The long-term effects of TBI are astounding. Data collected by the Family Caregiver Alliance reveals that the ability to return to work is highly interconnected with an individual’s ability to function after injury. Furthermore, survivors of severe head injuries are likely to suffer psychological disorders, such as depression and anxiety, and undergo social isolation.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 1.7 million people sustain a TBI each year. TBI is a contributing factor in 30% of deaths resulting from an injury. In addition, the costs associated with immediate medical care and rehabilitation are high. The Family Caregiver Alliance reports that costs associated with rehabilitative services and other long-term care are as high as $196,460 for one individual. Medical bills coupled with loss wages can cause financial ruin. The Haggai Law Firm can provide those who suffer from TBI in the Los Angeles area with the legal support required to seek compensation.

    What Are the Legal Elements of a TBI Case?

    An experienced personal injury lawyer will apply the basic, and complex, components of personal injury law to your TBI case. Two of the most important aspects of personal injury cases include the following:

    • Establishment of Damage to the Victim: The attorney must prove that the victim suffered damages.
    • Establishment of Negligence: The lawyer must prove that the complainant’s damages occurred as a direct result of someone else’s negligence.

    In order to establish that the complainant suffered damages, an attorney will collect relevant information and documentation. Documentation varies, depending on the incident that caused the TBI, but may include police reports, work-related documentation and medical records. Medical documentation is a non-negotiable component of TBI cases and establishes the level of care required to return a complainant to an acceptable level of functioning.

    The establishment of negligence is more complex and requires an experienced brain injury lawyer who understands California’s personal injury law. A favorable verdict requires that a lawyer prove the party that caused the injury breached his duty, which resulted in the TBI. In some cases, even if the patient was partially at fault, there may be grounds to seek compensation.

    How Are Damages Determined in TBI Cases?

    The costs associated with immediate medical care and long-term recovery can quickly become a financial burden. A knowledgeable attorney will seek compensation for current and future medical bills. In some cases, loss of income from work is also sought to ensure the complainant can function and focus on recovery. In addition, general damages may be awarded for pain, loss and suffering as a result of the injury.

    The Haggai Law Firm can review your case and help you determine how to proceed. My experience in personal injury law has helped my clients recover tens of millions of dollars in compensation. I am a member of multiple professional organizations and my belief in selfless service is the driving force behind my practice.
