West Covina Brain Injury Lawyer
The emotional and financial impact following a traumatic brain injury can leave lasting devastation to the person suffering the injury as well as the entire family. It is not unusual for recovery to take a lifetime not only for the injured person, but for their loved ones as well. Injuries to the brain can cause a wide variety of debilitating symptoms, such as seizures, paralysis, coma, personality changes, hearing loss, vision loss, loss of taste, loss of smell, and cognitive or learning deficits.
Symptoms Of A Brain Injury

Personal Injury Claims In West Covina, California
California law has established a 2 year timetable to file civil claims against a negligent party. This means that if your brain injury worsens at a later date, you may still be able to file a legal claim and collect damages. This statute of limitations 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.
