A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a penetrating or concussive head wound that causes damage to the brain and disrupts its normal function. TBIs occur when the head violently and suddenly hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue. The Menicucci Law Group has a familiarity with the medical and legal issues involved and can provide significant benefits in the resolution of your case.
There are two basic types of brain injuries. In open head injuries, the skull is fractured. A closed head injury does not involve a skull fracture, but these injuries can be even more serious than open head injuries because the brain may swell or blood clots may form under the skull.
Brain injuries can cause many complications even when the victim appears outwardly healthy. Symptoms of complications you should be alert to and take seriously after you have sustained a head injury include:
After any impact to the head, it is important to seek medical attention. Even an injury with minor symptoms could potentially have serious consequences if left untreated.
Because these injuries can result in serious and long-lasting damage that affects your ability to perform everyday activities, it is important to retain an experienced Orange, Riverside and San Bernindino counties traumatic brain injury attorney to represent and protect your interests.
People who have sustained a TBI may struggle with disabilities including the following:
Victims of TBIs often require a lifetime of care. An experienced attorney can help you pursue compensation for costs of treatment, therapy and home-care.

"I consulted Mr. Menicucci after my husband was badly hurt when he fell down a dangerous stairway. The premises owner's insurance company ignored me when all my husband and I were asking them to do was reimburse us for the cost of my hotel room where I had to stay for a few days while my husband was in the hospital. Mr. Menicucci represented my husband in his case against the premises owner who at first denied responsibility forcing us to file a lawsuit. Mr. Menicucci always kept us informed of the developments in the case and gave us sound legal advice. He worked very hard on my husband's behalf and it showed. The same insurance company, which ignored our request for a few hundred dollars, had to pay a substantial six-figure amount." - Carrie.
"Mr. Menicucci has represented me in two separate personal injury matters. Whenever I called Mr. Menicucci, he always took as much time as necessary to answer all of my questions and he thoroughly explained the legal process to me every step of the way. If he were not available to take my phone call, he returned the call in a timely manner. I also really appreciated that he copied me on letters he sent to the insurance companies, which allowed me to know what was going on and feel engaged in the process. The way he explained his strategies and what the other side would do or how they would probably react to our positions made it very easy for me to make decisions about my cases. I was very happy with the outcomes in each case and will not hesitate to contact Mr. Menicucci in the future if the need arises. I should add that whenever I have called Mr. Menicucci for legal advice he has always been very transparent about helping me whether I need legal representation or not." - Steve.
