Infant Brain Injury Victims Lawyer in California

Traumatic brain injuries are one of the leading causes of death and permanent disability in infants and children in the US, according to the Brain Injury Association of America (BIA). An infant can sustain a brain injury from negligent neonatal care, a difficult labor, traumatic birth, and injury from vacuum or forceps extraction during delivery, improper care and monitoring after birth or abusive head trauma (AHT) that includes shaken baby syndrome. Brain injury in infants may lead to indefinite disabilities like cerebral palsy, epilepsy, developmental delays and intellectual disabilities that may require long-term physical therapy and occupational therapy.

If your newborn has been diagnosed with a brain injury, and you suspect it’s the result of negligence from medical providers or careless actions by a caregiver, you need to contact a catastrophic injury lawyer in California. Johnson Attorneys Group is committed to helping people by protecting the rights of our clients and their families. Call us today for a free case review 1-800-208-3538

You may be entitled to economic damages for past, present and future medical expenses for your child and non-economic damages for the life-altering effects that an infant’s brain injury can have on his or her quality of life and the potential long-term or lifelong special needs care that may be needed along with any unforeseen expenses that may arise.

Diagnosing Brain Injuries in Infants

Diagnosis for infant brain injury begins when new parents or a doctor notices the telltale signs and symptoms that likely indicate brain damage within the first few weeks of an infant’s life that may include:

  • Distorted facial features
  • Abnormally large forehead
  • Irregular spine shape
  • Difficulty focusing eyes
  • Neck stiffness
  • Excessive crying
  • Feeding problems
  • Trouble sleeping while lying down

If there is a suspicion of injury to the brain, your doctor will conduct testing for eye and motor responses to calculate the baby’s Pediatric Glasgow Coma Score (AmE) to assess his or her level of consciousness and help define the severity of the brain injury. Based on the AmE score, your doctor may then order a CT head scan or MRI test for imaging that can determine if there is a skull fracture or brain hemorrhage present. Further testing with an EEG may also be necessary to track and record brain wave patterns to determine the brain’s communication level.

Are You Injured

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
