Los Angeles Brain Injury Attorneys
Put 40+ Years of Experience on Your Side
If you are someone who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, or the loved one of a TBI patient, you need an attorney with extensive experience handling these types of claims.
Brain injury lawsuits can be particularly challenging because of the hidden nature of the injury. After an accident, a head injury patient may appear normal to others but suffer from a post-concussive syndrome that does not show up on an MRI or a CT scan.
Victims of "mild" traumatic brain injuries and their families know all too well that the consequences of lasting brain injuries are anything but mild. Our firm knows how to handle such cases.

Causes of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries can be caused by a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Truck accidents
- Recreational accidents
- Sports injuries
- Medical mistakes
While the causes may vary, brain injuries do have one strikingly similar commonality: horrific side effects and changes that wreak havoc on those who have been injured. Biren Law Group understands brain injuries and can help you obtain maximum compensation for your losses.
What Are the Various Types of Brain Injury?
Each type of brain injury has particular short-term and long-term consequences, but thanks to aggressive, state-of-the-art medical treatment and therapy can improve outcomes for many patients. Since 1977, our lawyers have been helping brain injury victims and their families find and gain access to needed treatment and practical assistance.
There are several different types of brain injuries, including:
- Penetrating injury
- Diffuse axonal injury
- Coup-contrecoup injury
- Second impact syndrome
- Shaken baby syndrome
- Anoxic brain injury
- Open head injury
- Hypoxic brain injury
- Closed head injury
- Brain hemorrhage
- Brain stem injury
- Temporal lobe injury
- Frontal lobe injury
- Occipital lobe injury
- Post-concussive syndrome
Understanding the Severity of a Traumatic Brain Injury
In most cases, traumatic brain injuries fall into three different categories: mild, moderate, and severe. Even head injuries that are deemed as “mild” will result in serious health challenges and difficulties.
Common symptoms of a TBI may include:
- Cognitive problems, which include impaired memory, lack of concentration, poor attention span, slowed learning, difficulty reasoning, and other issues.
- Emotional and behavioral problems, which include depression, irritability, aggression, and other behavioral changes.
- Physical problems, which include fatigue, headaches, loss of coordination, sensory loss, sleep disturbance, coma, hemorrhage, and seizures.
What Options Are There For Treatment?
After a serious head injury, a patient is likely to find effective treatment, therapies, and rehabilitation in a hospital, in a rehabilitation facility, through outpatient treatment, in support groups, and in therapeutic settings. For best results, we recommend that you start your care with a doctor who specializes in your particular type of head injury. Because these types of treatment can be extremely costly, it is urgent for brain injury victims to retain the help of a skilled brain injury lawyer in Los Angeles who can determine which legal strategies can help the victim recover compensation for such therapy and treatment processes.
What Will The Recovery Process Be Like?
Depending on the severity of your brain injury, the recovery process can be lengthy or short. In most cases, you will need rest so that your body can recover. Studies show that a majority of the recovery progress occurs within the first six months of the injury. In severe cases, it may be difficult and impossible for a person to recover completely. As a result, the human body will find alternate ways to cope with the changes, and the person may learn other ways to compensate and become more functional. It is important to speak with a knowledgeable physician regarding your recovery process, since these processes range on a case-by-case basis.
Will Life Ever Seem Normal Again?
If you have a mild case, you may feel much better after two to three months, after five to six months or after a year. However, people who have suffered moderate or severe brain injuries, or even some who have sustained mild brain injuries, will suffer the consequences of their injuries for the rest of their life. Nevertheless, through cognitive behavioral therapy, the victim can learn compensatory strategies so that he or she can function as well as possible given the limitations caused by the brain injury.
