San Jose Head Injury Attorneys

Advocating for Injured Victims

Head injuries are often considered the most serious of personal injuries due to both their surprising frequency and severe consequences. It is not uncommon for a head injury that appears mild on the surface to actually cause immediate and permanent disabilities.

In every situation, expensive medical treatment and evaluations will be necessary to understand the true extent of the harm and how to alleviate it. The high cost should not fall on the shoulders of the injured when they are not the ones who caused the accident or incident.

Caputo & Van Der Walde and our San Jose head injury lawyers are adamant about winning a maximized settlement for our clients. We understand that what we do in conference and court rooms for our clients will have a significant impact on their livelihood, now and later.

You will see our commitment to your cause in everything that we do, from start to finish.

Types of Head Injuries & What Causes Them

There are a variety of different head injuries and each one poses a serious risk to a patient’s health.

Different types of head injuries include:

  • Contusion: A bruise on the brain due to blood that has leaked from blood vessels.
  • Depressed skull fracture: Skull fracture in which the bone touches or pierces the brain, which usually requires surgery.
  • Epidural hematoma: Blood clot occurring between the skull and the membrane covering the brain
  • Hematoma: Blood clot on the brain surface or within the brain.
  • Mass legion: Area of injury to the head which may place pressure on the brain.
  • Skull fracture: A crack or break in the skull which, if severe, may affect the brain, arteries, and nerves.

Accidents that may cause a head injury include:

If possible, after your injury, try to get as much information as you can about the accident as possible. Not only does this help medical responders and doctors help you, it also will empower your injury claim in the future.

Damages Associated with Head Injury Claims

Treating a head injury is a delicate process that cannot be rushed. Careful analyses are needed each step along the way to ensure that the head injury will heal properly and that the brain has not also been affected by the wound. In severe head injury cases, the patient will require lifelong hospitalization or care from an in-house warden.

When you team up with our San Jose brain injury attorneys, we want to get all the facts about your injury and treatment so we know you are getting the compensation you need, not just a low-balled amount that benefits only insurance companies or the liable party.

Hold the Negligent Party Responsible & Recover

No matter how you approach the situation, the person or peoples responsible for your head injury should be held accountable for what they have done, accidental or not.

With the trusted and dedicated representation of our San Jose head injury lawyers, you may be able to recover the monetary compensation that will set you down the path of recuperation without draining your bank accounts. If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident that resulted in a head injury, take swift action and bolster your chances by seeking our help.
