Brain Injury Lawyer in Los Angeles
Award-Winning Personal Injury Team
Traumatic brain injuries, or TBI for short, are known for their overwhelming potential to result in serious and significant setbacks, as well as life-altering circumstances. Whether they result from blunt force trauma to the head or external forces that do not necessarily produce a visible injury (such as whiplash), brain injuries can still have devastating consequences. For these reasons, brain injuries are commonly classified as catastrophic injuries – a classification that aptly describes just how serious they can be for victims and their loved ones.
At Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP, our legal team is committed to protecting the rights of victims and families throughout Los Angeles and Southern California. Our service as personal injury lawyers has allowed us to work personally with many victims who suffered brain injuries, concussions, and other related injuries in preventable accidents, understand their struggles, and gain the invaluable experience needed to advocate on their behalves when pursuing justice and financial compensation from at-fault parties.
Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers have experience helping clients following concussions and brain injuries sustained in all types of accidents, including a range of motor vehicle accidents.
Brain Injuries & Preventable Accidents
Brain injuries and concussions can occur in a number of ways, but personal injury lawyers who handle brain injury cases focus on representing victims who suffer injuries in accidents that could and should have been prevented if not for the negligence of another. Examples of accidents that commonly result in brain injuries include:
- Car Accidents
- Bus Accidents and Truck Accidents
- Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Slip & Fall Accidents
- Construction Accidents (i.e. Falls & Falling Objects)
Whatever the cause of a brain injury may be, the key components of a personal injury claim revolve around the legal duty an at-fault party owed the victim (such as the obligation to safely operate a motor vehicle or keep a premises free from potential hazards), the defendant’s breach of duty (arising from negligence, such as driving drunk), and how the defendant’s conduct more likely than not led to victims suffering harm and losses. They also require evidence that speaks to the nature of a victims’ injuries, their prognosis, and their needed treatment.
Because claims require evidence, and because brain injuries can have major consequences when left unaddressed – even if victims feel “fine” immediately after a wreck – seeking immediate medical attention after any head injury is strongly advised.
Your Right to Compensation
By focusing on the key legal elements in a personal injury case, and conducting appropriate investigations, our attorneys work toward establishing fault and liability. This can help victims of brain injuries recover the financial compensation they need to cover their damages and any future needs.
Because brain injuries have significant potential to disrupt the lives of victims, result in long recoveries, and require extensive if not serious and long-term medical needs, asserting your right to compensation is critical to recovering your losses and helping you on the path to recovery. Damages recoverable in personal injury cases may include:
- Incurred medical expenses, including emergency care, diagnostic tests, and treatment
- Future medical needs, including cognitive therapies, medications, medical procedures, and / or rehabilitation
- Lost income, lost future earnings, and other economic damages
- Pain and suffering
- Disfigurement or disability
- Property damage
In the most serious cases, including severe brain injuries which result in long-term or life-long disabilities or medical issues, the need for full and fair compensation becomes all the more important. In addition to securing future damages, family members who have suffered emotionally due to a loved one’s TBI may also be entitled to financial compensation from the at-fault defendant.

If you or someone you love has suffered a concussion or any other type of brain injury in a preventable accident, it is your right to hold the at-fault party accountable and seek a recovery of your damages. Though you may have this right, ensuring you’ll be fairly compensated is no easy task – especially as corporations and insurance companies which defend against claims fight aggressively to minimize payouts to victims. To level the playing field, you can place your trust in Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP.
