Antioch Serious Injury Attorneys
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be devastating for accident victims and their families. These injuries typically cannot be seen on X-rays or MRI scans. Often there is no "objective injury", and insurance companies are therefore generally skeptical about the seriousness of the TBI, and may balk at paying adequate and fair compensation to the victim. It is therefore vitally important that victims who are struggling with TBI receive proper medical attention, rehabilitation, and legal representation.
The Goforth & Lucas Law Partnership, is comprised of Concord and Antioch area traumatic brain injury attorneys who work with surgeons and neurologists throughout the San Francisco Bay Area to ensure that our clients get the care that they need. As part of a typical case work up we present comprehensive documentation to the insurance company or court outlining our client's need for medical treatment, physical therapy, and vocational retraining.
Many times, individuals who suffer with TBI do not realize that they are injured, and symptoms are often first reported by loved ones, friends and family members. Common symptoms can include:
- Short-term memory loss
- Long-term memory loss
- Chronic headaches
- Personality changes
- Blurred vision
- Sleep disruption
Cases involving TBI tend to be of longer duration than many other injuries because everyone recovers at a different rate. Some individuals do not get back to full capacity for years. Thus, early care from the correct medical professionals is essential to optimal improvement and the successful recovery of money damages. For TBI representation, contact a lawyer at our office to discuss your particular situation.
Governor Jerry Brown recently signed SB 863 which will affect all workers' compensation benefits beginning in 2013. Injured workers must protect their rights under the new law. To level the playing field against insurance carriers and their defense firms you must have aggressive and experienced representation from lawyers who fully understand both sides of your dispute as well as the new laws. If you have suffered personal injury, workers' compensation disability, or are fighting foreclosure because of your injuries, Goforth & Lucas will fight to protect your legal interests and obtain the best possible economic recovery.
