What You Need to Know about Penetrating Head Injuries

Suffering a penetrating head injury is one of the most traumatic experiences anyone could have. Having your skull broken and something actually penetrating your brain can not only cause severe physical damage to the most important part of your body‚ but can have long-lasting emotional consequences. Recovery after such an injury would not only be very long and difficult‚ but may actually be impossible. Damage to the brain cannot always be repaired and you may be left with severe impairments or permanent disability; and‚ unfortunately‚ these conditions require extensive and expensive medical treatment‚ care‚ and rehabilitation to achieve the best recovery possible. You should not be responsible for such financial burdens if the accident that caused them stemmed from another’s negligence.

Legal Options

If you have suffered a penetrating brain injury due to the negligent or reckless actions of another‚ you have the legal right to hold that party accountable for the consequences of that injury. They can be held responsible for the money you need for medical bills‚ rehabilitation‚ and the financial support of your family while you are unable to work.

At the Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers‚ our penetrating head injury attorneys in San Diego understand that filing a civil lawsuit is not foremost on your mind after a skull fracture or other such devastating injury. Your health is your top priority as it is ours‚ but obtaining compensation through a personal injury claim can provide you with the resources you need to make sure your health stays a priority.

We’re here to make that process as easy as possible so as not to impact your recovery. To find out more about how a personal injury claim can improve your situation‚ contact our San Diego personal injury lawyers for a consultation today.

Financial Security Essential to Recovery

Penetrating head injuries‚ if not fatal‚ may or may not be effectively treated‚ depending on the extent of injury. Recovery may include reconstructive surgery‚ medication‚ rehabilitation‚ counseling‚ and other support services as well as living accommodations and occupational services. Personality changes‚ physical impairments‚ and/or cognitive impairments may all follow a penetrating head injury and your recovery is dependent on your ability to pay for the services you need.

The Problem with Relying on Insurance

Insurance companies‚ even your own‚ are in the business of making money. When it comes to paying out on a policy or injury claim‚ insurance companies tend to be “business only.” They will probably examine your claim and your coverage and find any technicality or other loophole that could help them save money‚ even at the expense of your recovery. If the insurance company is that of the party responsible for your injuries‚ they will find any evidence they can to deny coverage or lessen the extent of your injuries in order to justify offering a less-than-fair amount.
