If you or a family member is suffering a traumatic brain injury due to an accident, you understand the heartbreaking emotional and financial toll the entire experience can have on the entire family. Recovery often takes a lifetime not only for the injured person, but for their loved ones as well. Brain injuries can cause a wide variety of crippling symptoms, such as paralysis, coma, seizures, personality changes, vision and hearing loss, loss of taste or smell, and cognitive or learning deficits.

- Drowsiness and/or fatigue
- Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep

- Changes in the ability to smell
Cognitive or Mental Symptoms

Personal Injury Claims In La Puente, California
Due to the understanding that many brain injuries take months or even years to become fully apparent, California has established a standard limit of 2 years to file civil claims against a negligent party. This means that if your brain injury gets worse over time, you may still be able to file a legal claim and collect damages. This statute limitation begins at the time of awareness of the injury, so it is important to obtain a medical evaluation as soon as possible following an accident or injury.
