Experienced Trial Lawyers for Serious Injuries

San Jose Closed Head Injury Attorneys

Pursuing Just Compensation for Victims

If you have sustained a closed head injury in an accident, get medical attention and then consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Another party may have been at fault for your injury, in which case, you may be entitled to coverage for medical treatment and rehabilitation, lost wages, and other damages.

To discuss your rights and legal options with our highly qualified San Jose personal injury firm, call Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP at (800) 900-0863.

Brain injuries can be devastating to victims, adversely affecting their motor functions, even dramatically altering their emotional and / or mental capacity to the point where they no longer are the same person they were before the incident. Blunt force trauma can cause the brain to jostle within the skull, leading to bruising and swelling, which, if left unattended, can in turn lead to serious complications.

Possible Short- and Long-Term Effects of A Closed Head Injury

A closed head injury may cause flu-like symptoms to arise, such as nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and headaches. In more serious cases, a victim may experience difficulty controlling or moving limbs.

Because the brain is central to all aspects of the human body and mind, a closed head injury can also result in considerable mental and emotional damages, including:

  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Inexplicable anger
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Other losses in the capacity to think and control one's feelings

Any and all of these symptoms may be temporary or permanent. In catastrophic cases, coma or even death may result.

Determining the Liable Party

If you bring forward an injury claim case after a closed head injury incident, it will be on your shoulders to establish liability; in other words, you will have to prove that the accident was caused by another party. Our legal team at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP can help you accomplish this by conducting a thorough analysis of the details relevant to your case.

This means collecting the following:

  • Accident reports

  • Witness accounts

  • Expert testimony

  • Other evidence

With legal assistance, you are more likely to receive a settlement offer that meets your past, present, and future needs.
