What is the Average Settlement for a Traumatic Brain Injury in California?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain caused by physical force. This type of injury is caused in various ways, and can occur during car accidents, slip and falls, and other types of accidents where the impact is directed to the head. If you experience a traumatic brain injury, you may face effects for the rest of your life.

If someone else’s actions caused the injury, you might have the right to pursue a claim for damages. This article walks you through the details of a TBI settlement in California.

Average Costs of TBI Treatment and Rehabilitation

The cost of treating and recovering from a TBI can vary depending on severity. Some TBI victims have minor injuries and only incur a short stay at the hospital, outpatient care, and monitoring by a physician. More severe injuries can require hospitalization, inpatient care, monitoring by specialists, and other treatments that could last for the rest of their lives. 

The recovery from a TBI typically entails physical, cognitive, speech, or occupational therapy. If the victim is paralyzed or disabled, they require expensive medical equipment, mobility aids, medicines, and home assistive devices. Various studies have been conducted by the CDC, Brain Injury Association of America, and the Family Caregiver Alliance, which indicate the following TBI victim statistics:

  • The first year of rehabilitation could cost nearly $196,000. Without rehabilitation services, the treatment for one year is approximately $18,000.
  • Total lifetime costs for a TBI victim could reach $4 million.
  • Fatal TBIs can cost upwards of $450,000.
  • The average daily cost for inpatient TBI care is $8,000. Residential rehabilitation facility costs average between $850 and $2,500 daily. Outpatient rehabilitation can reach up to $1,000 per session.

These numbers are staggering when trying to calculate the cost of recovering or caring for a TBI. Depending on the cause of the TBI, insurance may not cover all of the recovery and possible lifetime care for the victim. Contacting a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can after the injury helps you recover the maximum amount of damages from the person at fault in the accident, slip-and-fall, or other incident resulting in a TBI.

What Is the Average Settlement for a TBI Injury?

While there is no standard value for a brain injury settlement, understanding the extent of the injury helps the courts determine the value. Settlement amounts can range from the thousands to the millions depending on the circumstances of your case. TBI settlements tend to be much higher than other personal injury claims because of the long-term impact of the injuries. 

During your personal injury lawsuit, many factors influence the value of your settlement. The type of accident is one determining factor, there are different settlements for car accidents, slip and falls, and other TBIs caused by someone else’s negligence. 

Car accident TBI cases take the speed, car make/model, and your body position into account to determine how your brain is impacted. Slip-and-falls depend on height, frequency, and the extent of the injury.

In addition to the accident details, your age, gender, and health conditions can decrease or increase your risk for some injuries. If you wait to seek medical treatment, you could experience worsening effects, affecting the outcome of your lawsuit. When you seek care immediately, you may minimize the risk of complications, but you’ll notice how quickly the medical bills stack up. In addition to medical bills, you may also face lost time at work, a decrease in pay, or even the inability to work for the rest of your life. Regardless of the cost, seeking treatment immediately is essential to preventing more serious complications.

As you can see, many factors go into calculating the cost of a TBI. It’s crucial that you have a California personal injury lawyer evaluate your case to help consider the variables and maximize the amount of your settlement.

6 Tips for Preparing for a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Have you been injured in a car crash, bitten by your neighbor’s dog, or went through medical malpractice? If so, your friends and family are probably telling you it is time to seek out a personal injury attorney for your injuries and any loss of income that came with this accident. Like most people, you may not be able to afford all these added financial burden, and may be considering your options.

However, going through a personal injury lawsuit is often confusing and complicated because it presents several hoops you may have to jump through. To give yourself a fighting chance at winning your injury case, you’ll need to prepare yourself for what is to come. 

At Hann Law Firm, we know how difficult it can be to plan for a personal injury lawsuit when you are already facing the pain of your injuries and the difficulties that it causes in your everyday life. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite tips to prepare for your personal injury case.

Tip #1: Speak to a Lawyer Immediately

In the state of California, you will have 2 years from the time you are injured to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, if your injury was not discovered immediately (as is often the case with car accidents), you will have a year from the date that the injury was found. 

It is in your best interest that you get in touch with an attorney immediately after being injured to sit down, discuss your case with you, and go over the entire process. 

Your attorney will give you a full breakdown of what is to come, what paperwork will need to fill out  and submit, and what you will do if offered a settlement from the defendant. 

Tip #2: Head to Your Doctor for Evaluation and Treatment

It is always recommended that you go to your doctor to treat your injuries as soon as possible. Your doctors will be able to make notes of all injuries that you sustained from your accident in their reports. Your medical records will get used as evidence in your lawsuit, as they will show a timeline of your injuries. 

Dependent on your injuries, your doctor may put you on a long-term treatment plan. This treatment plan may consist of follow-up appointments, and procedures (if applicable). You should follow this treatment plan to the T, as it is one of the few things that will help protect your injury claim. Failing to follow the program may give the defendant a way to lessen the value of your injury claim. 

Tip #3: Collect All Evidence 

Whether you were in medical malpractice or a car accident, you should gather all necessary information to prove negligence, including: 

  • Photos of the scene
  • Photos of your injuries
  • Witness information (names, phone numbers, addresses)
  • Medical records
  • The defendant’s information (name, phone number, address)
  • Contact information of insurance companies
  • Receipts of any and all money spent due to injuries

By compiling all of this evidence, your attorney will be able to fill out the proper paperwork that is needed to file your lawsuit. All paperwork must get filled out and filed within two years of the incident in the State of California.. 

Tip #4: Do Not Talk About Your Injuries or Case on Social Media

If you are going through a personal injury lawsuit, you should not talk about it on any of your social media accounts. 

Many courts have ruled time and time again that there is no privacy when it comes to social media and lawsuits.. The defendant’s attorneys will have the option to petition the court and ask them for access to your social media accounts during the case, so anything and everything you say about your case or the incident on social media can (and attemptedly will) be used as evidence against you in court. Even if the judge doesn’t give the defense entry to your social media accounts, you may be required to provide copies of your videos, posts, and photos that are relevant to this lawsuit. 

Your attorney will advise you that it is best to not post about your case on social media. It is also wise not to post photos of you doing activities that conflict with the injuries (or severity of)you sustained from the accident, even if you are fully healed at the time. 

Tip #5: Know When to Take a Settlement

Going through trial can take several months and may be an arduous process, but your attorney will always have your best interest in mind. While your attorney may receive settlement offers that are less than ideal, there will be times when a settlement offer  may be acceptable. Listen to your attorney’s advice and weigh your options carefully.

Before you even begin this process, you should sit down and talk to your attorney about how much money is a reasonable settlement offer. Your attorney will break this down for you, and explain the payout for: 

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Compensation for Pain and Suffering
  • Punitive Damages (if applicable)

There will be some cases where a settlement may be a better option than going to trial, saving time, legal fees, and prolonged stress.

Tip #6:  Stay in Touch with Your Attorney

It doesn’t matter if you are going through a child custody battle or a personal injury lawsuit. You should always keep open communication between you and your attorney. During your case, your communication should be transparent and consistent with your legal counsel. 

Having open communication with your attorney will allow for any changes in your condition, status, or ability to be documented quickly and considered for your case. For instance, if your injuries have gotten worse in the last few weeks and now you cannot work, this will need to be added into your case documentation as quickly as possible. 

Your attorney is on your side. They will answer all concerns and questions promptly. This communication will give you confidence and peace of mind knowing that they are doing everything they can to protect you.

How Are Damages Calculated in California Personal Injury Law?

Are you preparing to file a personal injury lawsuit in California and wondering how courts award damages? While there’s no simple formula that can tell you potential damages, how state law classifies damages can give you a rough picture. Even then, such estimates may not matter in the end.

When it comes to personal injury lawsuits, it’s always best to consult with a personal injury attorney. But with a little guidance and information, you can be better prepared for your day in court. 

Our team at Hann Law Firm has written this guide to help you better understand how California calculates damages and how you can get the most out of your lawsuit.

Types of Damages

The law groups damages in two ways: compensatory and punitive. Compensatory damages cover financial costs and losses related to the accident. In contrast, punitive damages serve as further punishment for the defendant and a deterrent against others who may act similarly. 

Compensatory damages are always part of a personal injury lawsuit. Punitive damages, however, aren’t always included. Instead, a judge awards them at their discretion. Thus you can only plan on compensatory damages should you win your lawsuit.

Calculating Compensatory Damages

Should a judge find that the defendant is at fault and caused your injury, compensatory awards will cover the money you lost or the debt you incurred due to the accident. Most commonly, this is equal to the cost of medical bills, repair costs to damaged property, and lost wages. 

These are easy to prove if you keep a hard copy of bills and invoices. Compensation can cover such bills even if you’ve already paid them. Your accident attorney will submit these records to a judge, who will determine how relevant they are to your accident and use them to determine compensatory damages.

Particular circumstances can increase damages but are more challenging to prove. Pain and suffering and are examples. Establishing these isn’t as simple as submitting an invoice, but they are still worth pursuing.

Calculating Punitive Damages

Because punitive damages are only issued when a judge feels appropriate (or necessary), you cannot include them as part of your lawsuit. Moreover, you and your attorney cannot estimate what they might be. There are multiple factors a judge could use to justify awarding punitive damages, but the law doesn’t offer a strict formula.

When a jury renders a guilty verdict in a personal injury lawsuit, they may find that the defendant acted recklessly or intentionally. For example, driving while intoxicated is usually considered reckless behavior. When this happens, the judge will look at the case’s facts to determine how much the defendant should pay in punitive damages.

Punitive damages serve two purposes —  to punish the defendant for terrible behavior further and to help you return your life to what it was before the injury as much as possible. The factors they’ll include are a mixture of economic and non-economic, including:

  • The defendant’s past criminal activity
  • Both your and the defendant’s insurance policies
  • Both your and the defendant’s income
  • Your legal costs
  • The defendant’s consciousness of guilt
  • If the defendant intended to cause harm
  • If the defendant made a financial gain from the accident

A judge can also award punitive damages if they feel the compensatory damages aren’t high enough or don’t reflect the nature of your injury or the accident.

Why Damages May Be Irrelevant 

When filing your personal injury lawsuit, you must state the damages you’re seeking. Regardless of the trial’s anticipated outcome, you and your lawyer should spend the time to gather as much evidence as you can and calculate the value of your losses resulting from the accident. However, most personal injury cases in the United States never go to trial, so damages don’t always come into play. Instead, the defendant may want to settle.

Personal injury lawsuits often involve both parties’ insurance companies, who don’t want to spend all the time and money a trial costs. To sidestep a lengthy legal process, they offer plaintiffs settlements much more often than they fight the case in court.

Because settlements happen outside of a trial, no guidelines or formulas that state what to offer. Instead, your attorney will negotiate on your behalf to get a settlement that you and the defendant can agree to.

Sadly, plaintiffs who choose to represent themselves put themselves at a disadvantage during the settlement process. They don’t have the knowledge and experience needed to present a strong case for increasing a settlement or accept a small payment even when their case is strong enough to warrant much more. It’s just one more reason you should have an attorney on your side for personal injury lawsuits.

What Evidence Is Needed to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

There are a lot of situations that can result in personal injury — from slips and falls in public places to traffic accidents and more. But how do you know which situations set the grounds for a personal injury lawsuit?

If you’re like most people, filing a personal injury lawsuit may seem like too big an undertaking to consider. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be. 

We’ve outlined the different types of evidence you need to prove your case. Once you and your accident attorney gather this evidence, the rest of the process is easier to tackle.

The 4 Types of Evidence

In California, you can sue someone if their negligence causes you injury. Examples include car accidents and workplace incidents. When you’re injured, you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as you’re able to after you receive a medical evaluation and treatment.

There are five types of evidence you can use to prove your personal injury case:

  • Evidence from where the accident occurred.
  • Other types of physical evidence.
  • Video or audio recordings of the incident.
  • Testimony from witnesses.
  • Reports and records.

Note that it’s not required to have evidence of each type and that in some cases, it may not be possible to have each type of evidence. For example, not every accident takes place in front of witnesses. You should still strive to gather as much evidence as possible to build the best case. 

Type 1: Evidence from the Scene

Gathering evidence at the scene of an accident requires you to think clearly and keep calm. Since most evidence at the scene comes down to photographs and reports to relevant parties at the time of the accident, it can be challenging to keep these things in mind, especially if you’re in pain. However, gathering evidence from the scene after the fact isn’t always possible.

If you can, get a picture of the scene with your smartphone, especially if the environment’s condition caused the accident. For example, puddles on a restaurant floor are evidence of negligence on the part of the restaurant. Besides providing a clear image, digital photos also carry timestamps that prove when you took them.

Next, file a report with the police. If the accident occurs in a place of business, file a complaint with the management, too. Always try to exchange insurance in the case of a motor vehicle accident. These kinds of reporting can be used as evidence later.

Type 2: Other Physical Damage

Was anything of yours damaged as a result of the accident? Hold on to it, no matter how minor the damage (or the item) seems. Not only will this help you with your lawsuit, but it may help police if they are considering charges against an individual for causing the accident.

Small things like clothes and jewelry are easy enough to hold onto once they’re damaged, but what do you do with a vehicle? Because some damage levels can make it dangerous (and possibly illegal) to continue driving your vehicle, you can instead take photos of the damage and take it to get repaired. Remember to keep any records a mechanic or body shop may give you as evidence.

Type 3: Video/Audio Evidence

Cameras are everywhere these days. Many workplaces and public spaces have them as a security and safety measure. Even when you remove security cameras from the situation, smartphones and dashcams are just as prevalent. Unless it happened in s relatively isolated area, chances are a camera caught footage of your accident.

When gathering evidence, it’s common for victims, their lawyers, and even the police to find cameras in the area that may have had a view of the accident scene. The owners of such cameras can provide you with such footage, but you should act quickly. Many businesses will regularly delete footage after a while if they aren’t legally required to retain it longer.

If you think of it, you can use your phone to record any interactions you have immediately after the incident. Doing so is invaluable in car accidents, as it may show other negligence on the other driver’s part. 

Type 4: Witnesses

It’s not uncommon for people near the scene of an accident to film or photograph the scene. You or your lawyer can ask them for these images to support your case. You can also request any witnesses to submit testimony should your lawsuit go to trial. 

Their testimony can be in the form of a written report, but in any case, you’ll need their contact information. It’s best to get witness evidence quickly before they have a chance to forget.

Turning In Evidence on Time

California gives citizens just two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, so you must reach out to an attorney right away to start gathering evidence. If your injury is severe, your lawyer can take charge of gathering evidence.

What Are the Statutes of Limitations for Personal Injury Law in California?

If you plan on filing a personal injury lawsuit in California, do you know how much time state law gives you to take action? If you wait too long, your right to collect damages will expire. To file, it is important to know the statutes of limitations for personal injury law in the state of California. 

California law can easily overwhelm individuals when trying to navigate complex legal language, stipulations and limitations on what you can do and when. At Hann Law, we understand that it can be difficult to handle on your own.

In this article, we’ll go over what the statute of limitation is, what exceptions to the rule exist, and other necessary information so that you are better prepared to file your personal injury lawsuit in California. 

What is the Statute of Limitations?

The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is two years from the accident or injury in California. Some exceptions can alter this timeframe (explained below), but two years is the default. After that period passes, your legal right to sue the other party expires.

Two years seems like plenty of time, it’s essential that you contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to get the process started and secure your rights. The sooner your attorney can gather evidence to secure your case, the sooner it can be filed. 

Can I Still Sue After the Statute of Limitations Passes?

You can still file a personal injury lawsuit even if the statute of limitations has passed, but doing so is often doomed to fail. That’s because defendants will usually use expiration as a defense to have the case dismissed. Short of some exceptions outlined by state law, there’s no course of action you can take to change this.

On top of this, the personal injury statute of limitations applies to settlements, too. As a whole, the law prevents you from seeking damages after two years have passed. The defendant will have no pressure or obligation to settle with you outside that window of time. 

What Are the Exceptions?

California recognizes that certain circumstances can prevent you from making your legal claim within the specified time frame. To maintain the fairness that the statute of limitations establishes, some situations can alter this window by delaying when the two-year period starts or by putting it on hold temporarily. 

The most common of these is called delayed discovery. The rule addresses situations where you don’t realize you are immediately injured or that someone else’s negligence caused your accident. With these instances, the statute of limitations begins when you discover that you’re injured or become aware of the other party’s negligence.

Another type of extension occurs if the would-be defendant leaves the state before you file. Since you can’t serve the defendant, the lawsuit can’t proceed. To compensate for this, the statute of limitations stops running while the other party is outside California. The defendant could face more potential legal problems when they return to California, too.

When you initially reach out to a personal injury lawyer, they’ll spend time analyzing your case to see if you have a valid claim. However, they can also assess if any extensions apply to your ability to file. Numerous extensions exist, covering a wide range of scenarios. A knowledgeable attorney will work with you to stay abreast of the situation and identify these as they arise. 

What About Suing a Government Entity?

Personal injury claims against local or state government entities in California are possible but work somewhat differently. First, your injury must be the result of that entity’s negligence. For example, you suffer an injury due to a poorly maintained government building. Second, your lawsuit must follow a specific sequence of actions.

Instead of immediately filing a personal injury lawsuit against the government, you must file an administrative claim first. Doing so is the precursor to everything else, and you must file within six months of your physical injury. Once you’ve filed, the entity has forty-five days to respond to your claim. 

If they don’t respond, you can file your lawsuit within two years of when you were injured (the standard statute of limitations). If they deny your claim, you can still file,  but you must do so within six months of the denial.

Do Malpractice Claims Fall Under Personal Injury?

While medical malpractice can lead to personal injury, the law treats them as their own type of lawsuit. As a result, they have a separate statute of limitations (one year instead of two) and their own unique restrictions. 

If you’re looking at the possibility of suing for malpractice, be sure that your lawyer has experience handling these types of cases. Though malpractice claims have many similarities to personal injury claims, they also carry significant differences.

Can Personal Injury Still Happen During the WFH Era?

Working from home can be a great boon on one’s mental health. Early mornings to take long commutes are becoming a thing of the past with the option to work from home growing. The physical and psychological stress has been lifted off many people, and they see the benefits in many aspects of their lives.

With a large number of people working from home, it would seem safe to assume that the number of workers’ compensation claims would be lower. This phrase was accurate at the beginning of the pandemic. However, as time progresses, employees have been getting into accidents at home, and filings for workman’s compensation have been steadily rising.

The line between personal injury and work injury is very fine when an employee works from a home office. It has become rather challenging to determine which injury the employee has and if they can claim workers’ compensation.

Is it a Personal Injury or a Work Related Injury?

A worker’s compensation system is considered no-fault. This means if an employee is injured in the “course and scope” of their employment, the injuries are covered under the employer’s workers’ comp insurance. The employee or other staff members’ negligence has no bearing on if they are able to claim workers’ comp. 

Remote work injuries being claimed as workers’ compensation may seem brand-new to many. However, people who do remote work have been able to claim their injuries in the home as workers’ compensation for quite some time. 

Employees are covered by injuries occurring outside of the office or workspace as long as the damage happened while doing something job-related. The main issue is determining what qualifies as personal versus work-related when an employee works from home instead of in an office or other work site. It is especially true when the injury could happen on any given day while walking around at home doing personal activities, so determining the line is crucial. 

How Does Workers’ Comp Insurance Decide?

Insurance companies consider several factors when looking into worker’s compensation claims to differentiate between a personal injury or a work-related injury. However, it comes down to these basic questions:

#1. Was the employee doing work benefiting the employer?

An employee at the office is covered without much fuss. Even if the employee is on break and falls in a puddle of water that causes severe injuries needing a trip to the hospital, workers’ compensation covers medical bills and lost wages. 

When at home, if you slip in a puddle of water before work getting out of the shower, you as the employee will more than likely not be covered by workers’ compensation. Taking a bath is a personal activity an employee does daily and not customarily covered if they work in an office environment. 

However, say you as the employee are going out to your car parked in your driveway to get a box of files you left in the trunk overnight and slip on a pile of leaves a careless neighbor raked onto the asphalt. The injuries sustained while retrieving files for work could be covered by workers’ compensation since it benefited the employer for the employee to have the files.

#2. Was the activity employer required?

It is relatively straightforward to tell if the injury is work-related if it occurs at a work facility. Several people can document the incident and verify the damage isn’t work-related. An employee working from home will have difficulty proving their injury is work-related with no witnesses or without someone to collaborate that the injury was indeed related to the job. 

#3. Did the Employer approve the activity causing the injury?

In a workplace, the activities of employees are often monitored by managers and other staff closely. There are very few cases where employees’ action in facilities is considered personal since documentation usually proves the company approved the activities.

Remote workers will likely not have documentation outside of their word to verify they injured themselves doing job-related activities. Witnesses play an integral part in workers’ comp in most cases, and not having people to back the claim does hurt the chances of someone not getting worker’s compensation. 

How are the Courts Handling these Cases?

Times are changing in terms of how companies handle their workforce, and the judicial system is evolving with it. They are erring on the side of the employees and covering them in disputes.

The best course of action is to have expansive coverage when it comes to workers’ comp insurance. On top of protecting themselves and saving the judicial systems time, it ensures the employee can get back to work sooner by covering these things:

#1. Medical Expenses

Medical bills are a burden in normal cases, such as appendicitis or having tonsils removed. Workers’ Compensation will cover any hospital bills related to the work injury and any physical therapy bills needed to help the employee get back to the job sooner. 

A repetitive injury, like carpal tunnel syndrome, is considered a workers’ compensation injury if it is job related. The employer is obligated to cover the injury if achieved on the job and deterioration on the body as result of working in the same field for years at the same job is considered workers’ compensation.

#2. Loss of Wages

Workers’ compensation does require the company to cover the employee’s loss of wages when they get injured on the job. Paying bills and buying food is a basic worry most people have daily. By covering loss of wages and ensuring the employee can cover their personal expenses, they can rest up and get back to work quicker.

#3. Money for Permanent Injury

There are many fields the injury the employee sustained may or may not be permanent. Workers’ compensation will cover any permanent job-related injury an employee sustained in relation to their job, which might include corrective surgeries or rehospitalizations. 

What Happens if the Claim is Denied?

An employer may deny an employee hurt themselves at home while doing a job-related activity. They might claim the employee does not have sufficient proof or the action that caused the incident wasn’t sanctioned by the company. The only option an employee might have is to take their employer to court to receive what is rightfully theirs.
