Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers In Ventura
Traumatic brain injuries, which are also known as TBIs, are a factor in 30.5 percent of all injury related deaths. Those who survive a TBI are much more likely than others to experience issues such as depression and the inability to work. Although falling is the top cause of a traumatic brain injury, car accidents and assaults are also common factors.
Therefore, if you or a loved one have suffered from a TBI that happened due to the negligence of another person or entity, you have the legal right to file a personal injury lawsuit against them. Contact the Ventura traumatic brain injury lawyers at The May Firm now for a free consultation.
Ventura sits on the ocean between Santa Barbara and Oxnard, and U.S. Route 101 goes through the downtown area. This makes it easy to access major cities throughout California’s Central Coast, but it also compounds the traffic issues that already exist from having 109,000 residents in one city. As a result, car accidents happen on a regular basis, and some of them lead to a traumatic brain injury. Additionally, people in Ventura may end up with a TBI because of incidents ranging from a physical altercation to an intentional blow to the head.

Why do I need an attorney?
When you are injured in an accident that was not caused by your fault, the most important thing you can do is take care of yourself. It can be very difficult, if not nearly impossible, to navigate through the accident claim process on your own. Insurance companies often attempt to settle cases as quickly as possible to avoid paying further medical fees for innocent victims like you. By hiring a personal injury lawyer, you can focus on getting back on your feet and you can trust that your legal battle is being fought by knowledgeable attorneys. As you heal from your physical and emotional injuries, an attorney will fight the insurance companies and the person who is at fault for the accident to get you the compensation you deserve. The personal injury attorneys at The May Firm have extensive knowledge on a variety of personal injury cases, as well as how the law applies to each individual case. You will not be taken advantage of by an insurance company with the guidance and support of an attorney. The May Firm will be a powerful advocate working for you.
Do I have to pay the attorney’s fee up front?
An experienced personal injury attorney will work tirelessly to maximize the value of your case. Not hiring an attorney can be, and usually is, a major mistake. Unintentional legal mistakes occur during the first call or visit with the claims adjustor. Insurance adjustors are trained to ask certain questions that could pose problems for your case later. They are also trained to offer a small settlement amount right up front. Unfortunately, some people agree to the small up-front settlement and regret it later when they have on-going medical issues.

I was in a car accident and the other person doesn’t have enough insurance - What can I do?
Legally, everyone must be properly insured to handle accident claims. However, that is not always the case. If you were injured in an accident and the other person does not have insurance, or does not have enough insurance, it is your right to file a claim against the person. You can file a claim with your own insurance company, this is called an underinsured motorist claim. If you have underinsured motorist coverage, you have it for the precise situation you are in. Don’t worry, your premiums will not go up. You have paid for this coverage each and every month you pay your insurance premiums. You have the contractual right to protect yourself in the event the persona at fault did not carry enough insurance to cover your losses. The personal injury attorneys at The May Firm will help protect you against the uninsured or underinsured person who caused the accident that led to your injuries. You have rights and deserve to receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
