Los Angeles Coma Accident Attorney
Injuries Causing Comas
When negligent or intentional acts cause head trauma that is severe enough to induce a coma, a head injury lawsuit should be considered. Comas are states of unconsciousness from which patients cannot be aroused, perhaps for extended lengths of time. Some comas leave patients in permanent vegetative states, creating difficult choices for their families.
Filing Head Injury Lawsuits
In Southern California, head trauma lawsuits are handled by personal injury law firms. Lawyers who work in this field are experts in tort law and understand the best methods of winning large settlements in head injury lawsuits. Oftentimes, lawyers will utilize medical experts to research a patient’s condition and bring greater authority to a case. This can be especially important if the case goes before a jury trial.
The majority of traumatic-brain-damage cases that result in comas are due to motor-vehicle accidents. If the coma patient’s trauma resulted from negligent driving, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will be responsible for financially compensating the victim. The driver will not be personally sued unless he doesn’t carry adequate motor-vehicle insurance. Other frequent causes of comas include falls and sports accidents.
