Los Angeles is the largest city in California and the second-largest city in the entire United States. In fact, based on the 2020 United States Census, L.A. County had a population of 3,849,297 as of July 1, 2021. Los Angeles is 50.2 percent female, with 12.9 percent of residents being 65 years of age and older, 20.3 percent being under 18 years of age, and 5.5 percent less than 5 years of age.

The census also reported that 48.4 percent of Los Angeles is Hispanic or Latino, 44.9 percent is white, 11.7 percent is Asian, 9.8 percent is two or more races, 8.6 percent is Black or African American, and 0.9 percent is American Indian or Alaska Native. An estimated 16.6 percent were people in poverty, with only 36.2 percent having a bachelor’s degree or higher, 12.0 percent having no health insurance, and 6.5 percent were people under 65 years of age with a disability.
The 9,829,544 residents also make Los Angeles County the largest county in the country, and the United States Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) reported that Los Angeles had a gross metropolitan product of over $1.0 trillion. The city comprises several different neighborhoods and districts, including Chinatown, Venice, Skid Row, and Playa Vista, among many others. Considered one of the busiest cities in California, it is no surprise that various accidents and injuries occur every day in Los Angeles.
John Hopkins Medicine emphasizes that head injuries commonly cause disability and death in adults. Still, the phrase head injury is also broad terminology for many different kinds of injuries. Common kinds of head injuries include concussions, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), skull fractures, and intracranial hematoma (ICH).
Many head injuries can require intensive medical care that involves several months or even years of rehabilitation and recovery. It can be difficult for people to anticipate the various short- and long-term effects of a head injury.

Head injuries may be either closed or open, with a closed head injury meaning a person suffered a sharp blow to their head from striking an object that did not break the skull, while an open or penetrating, head injury means a person was hit with an object that broke the skull and entered the brain. It is possible that head injuries can cause bleeding in the brain tissue or in the layers surrounding the brain, such as subarachnoid hemorrhage, subdural hematoma, or epidural hematoma.

The brain and head injury attorneys at Arash Law represent people all over the Los Angeles area who have suffered serious head injuries caused by the negligence of other parties. We know that many factors are involved in these cases, which is why we work hard to help people prove their cases in court.

A serious head injury can have potentially lifelong effects on a person, so you should not wait too long to get legal help. Arash Law, founded by Arash Khorsandi Esq., fully understands the kinds of costs people are dealing with in these cases and works closely with clients so they have proper guidance about which actions to take throughout their cases.

During a 30-year study period, the The University of Pennsylvania Health System reports that adults who suffered a head injury during a 30-year study period had two times the rate of mortality than people who did not have a head injury, and mortality rates among people with moderate or severe head injuries were nearly three times higher. More than 23 million adults aged 40 or older reported a history of head injury with loss of consciousness in the United States.
The Penn Medicine study also found that 18.4 percent of study participants reported one or more head injuries, while 12.4 percent of people who suffered a head injury were recorded as moderate or severe, with the median period of time between a head injury and death being 4.7 years. In fact, people who suffered a head injury were at risk of death from all causes 64.6% of the time, while people who did not suffer a head injury were at risk of death 52.6% of the time.
The mortality rate from all causes among participants with a head injury was reported to be 2.21 times higher than the mortality rate among those with no head injury. Meanwhile, the mortality rate among those with more severe head injuries was 2.87 times higher than the mortality rate among those with no head injuries.
The American Association of Neurological Surgeons reported that the following sports and recreational activities represented the categories contributing to the highest number of head injuries treated in American hospital emergency rooms in 2018:
  • Cycling – 64,411
  • Football – 51,892

Types of Head Injuries
There are several different kinds of head injuries. When a person seeks medical attention for head trauma, a doctor will often provide a thorough diagnosis and the extent of the damage.
Common outward signs of head injuries can include bumps, bruising, or bleeding. Some mild head injuries may also involve internal symptoms such as swelling of brain tissue.
In addition to possible brain damage, certain head injuries can also involve damage to other structural parts of the body, like the neck and spinal cord. The most common kinds of head injuries include, but are not limited to:
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) – A TBI often results from violent blows or jolts to a person’s head or body, and objects going through brain tissue can also cause TBIs. TBIs often have the potential to cause long-term complications or death.
  • Concussions – Perhaps the most common kind of head injury that causes a loss of awareness that may last a couple of minutes or possibly a few hours.
  • Hematoma – A hematoma is a pool of mostly clotted blood forming in an organ, tissue, or body space. They are often caused by broken blood vessels damaged by surgery or injuries and can occur anywhere in the body, including the brain. Many hematomas will be small and go away on their own, but some can need to be removed by surgery.
  • Hemorrhage – A brain hemorrhage is a kind of stroke caused by an artery in the brain bursting and causing localized bleeding in surrounding tissues. The bleeding kills brain cells and accounts for many strokes.
  • Cerebral edema – Cerebral edema is also known as brain swelling and involves an increase of pressure in a person’s head that disrupts the blood-brain barrier. Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) can prevent oxygen-rich blood from flowing to the brain, block fluids from leaving the brain, and even damage or kill brain cells, making cerebral edema a life-threatening condition that can cause permanent brain damage or death when not treated quickly.
  • Skull fracture – A skull fracture is a break in the skull bone. The four major types of skull fractures include linear skull fractures, which are the most common type of skull fracture in which there is a break in the bone but does not move the bone; depressed skull fractures, in which the skull is actually sunken in from trauma; diastatic skull fractures occurring along the suture lines in the skull; and basilar skull fractures that are the most serious type of skull fracture, involving a break in the bone at the base of the skull.
  • Intracranial hematoma (ICH) – There are different kinds of ICH, or blood clots, in or around the brain, classified by the location in the brain. ICH can range from mild head injuries to serious and possibly life-threatening injuries. Different types of ICH include epidural hematoma, which occurs when a blood clot forms underneath the skull but on top of the dura; subdural hematoma, which occurs when a blood clot forms underneath the skull and underneath the dura but outside of the brain; contusions or intracerebral hematoma, which is a bruise to the brain itself, diffuse axonal injuries (DAIs), which involve shaking of the brain back and forth and may be mild or very severe.
  • Spinal cord injury or spinal injury – The National Library of Medicine states that a spinal cord concussion is a kind of mild spinal cord injury designated as transient paraplegia or neurapraxia and characterized by variable degrees of sensory impairment and motor weakness. The cervical spine is susceptible to injury because of axial loading forces to the head with the neck in flexion or extension.
Virtually all of these different head injuries have the potential to result in permanent brain damage. Most head injuries are going to require intensive medical treatment as well as prolonged recovery time.

Medical treatment of head injuries can often be very costly, and brain injury victims, in particular, may be unable to return to work or participate in other activities. As all of these costs add up for people, it becomes increasingly important for any head injury victim to quickly contact Arash Law so they can begin working with the best head injury lawyer in Los Angeles who can provide appropriate legal counsel and also seek justice for victims.

Common Symptoms and Treatment for Head Injuries

Head injuries can often be difficult for most people to diagnose on their own, and many people will not know that they suffered a head injury until they begin experiencing some of the more debilitating symptoms.

  • Coma
  • Vegetative state

All head injuries need to be taken seriously, even minor ones. There can be dramatic consequences when people do not seek appropriate medical care for a head injury.

As soon as a person suffers brain trauma of any kind, they must immediately seek medical help and diagnosis before taking advantage of a free consultation with a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer.

Types of Head Injuries
Diagnosis of Head Injuries

Diagnosis of Head Injuries

Medical exams are customarily the first step in diagnosing possible brain injuries, and an assessment often includes a neurological exam that evaluates a person’s thinking, motor function, sensory function, coordination, eye movement, and reflexes. Imaging tests like computerized tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans cannot detect all TBIs.
Certain tests from FDA-regulated medical devices can help healthcare providers rule out more serious brain injuries and may detect bleeding resulting from a TBI that requires immediate medical or surgical attention. Medical specialists often diagnose head injuries in the following ways:
  • Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) – The GCS is a 15-point test that helps doctors or other medical personnel assess the initial severity of brain injuries by checking a person’s ability to follow directions and move their eyes and limbs. Abilities will be scored from three to 15 on the GCS. Higher scores mean less severe injuries.
  • Measurements for levels of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) – The Center for Outcome Measurement in Brain Injury (COMBI) publishes a list of several different scales used to measure brain injuries.
  • Speech and language tests – A comprehensive assessment for people with TBIs determines speech, language, cognitive-communication, swallowing, and audiologic strengths and needs.
  • Cognition and neuropsychological tests – Neuropsychological testing may help determine the areas of a brain impacted by a TBI and how impairments are impacting a person’s day-to-day functioning. It can also determine how other factors may be impacting a person’s cognitive functioning.
  • CT and MRI imaging tests – A CT scan will take pictures to create images of a brain and show if there is a fracture or bleeding. An MRI will create clear images of brain tissue, but the scans will not show if a person has a concussion.
All of these kinds of assessments can help accurately diagnose a head injury and determine the appropriate medical care and treatment in these cases.

Misdiagnosis of a Head Injury

It is always important for a person to seek a solid medical diagnosis of their head injury. Still, there may be cases in which a person’s head injury is not properly diagnosed. In such cases, people can suffer additional complications because of a misdiagnosis, which can risk permanently damaging their brain function.
Arash Law can put you in touch with only the most reputable physicians and medical professionals, so you can be confident that you are getting a complete picture of your health. You will want to be certain you are working with someone who truly understands the complexity of head injuries.
A head injury lawyer in Los Angeles can ensure that all head injury victims can be fairly compensated for a medical misdiagnosis through the filing of certain claims, negotiating settlements, or litigating when necessary.

Average Settlements for Head Injuries

It is not uncommon for many people to receive a phone call from an insurance company representing a negligent party in many head injury cases, and the insurer may offer a person a lump-sum settlement to resolve their case. Even when an offer seems quite large, a person should still decline the offer because chances are very good that whatever they are being offered is nowhere near what they are actually entitled to.
Head injury settlements can be complex to determine because so many facets of a person’s life can be impacted in a number of different ways. While settlements are often the most common outcome in head injury cases because no insurance company wants to pay the high costs of taking a case to trial, there will be cases that do make it all the way to the courtroom.
Should a case go to trial and a person would become successful in proving their case by a preponderance of the evidence, they can receive many different kinds of compensatory damages.
There are two types of compensation damages: special or economic damages and general or non-economic damages.
Special damages compensate people for their monetary losses because of an accident and often include:

General damages are much more subjective kinds of losses that may include:
