Hermosa Beach Brain Injury Lawyer

When brain-damaged or paralyzed victims of traffic accidents need their rights protected — and help pursuing maximum financial compensation for their suffering — one law firm in Southern California stands out.

Serving the injured with experience and commitment for more than 30 years, we are the dedicated lawyers of Hodges & Thomas in Hermosa Beach and Encinitas.

Robert R. Hodges and Richard F.G. Thomas know how to investigate accidents that cause life-changing brain and spinal cord injury and crashes that result in wrongful death. They bring the facts of a client's case to skillful negotiations with insurers — and litigate aggressively against them if necessary. Our dedicated lawyers prepare every case as if it is going to trial and keep you updated on your family's personal injury claim throughout the legal process.

The signs of a brain injury can range greatly from memory loss to personality changes. No two brain injuries are the same. Some individuals walk away from an accident scene with a brain injury that goes undetected for days and even weeks. For others, the high-speed impact of a car accident or truck accident can immediately cause a concussion and permanent brain damage. We understand that a brain injury can occur from many types of accidents or causes and we make sure that all of the injuries suffered by you or your loved ones are strongly presented to maximize your potential recovery.

Hodges & Thomas — Manhattan Beach Head Injury Attorneys Since 1982

You can expect quality representation and attentive personal service if you or a loved one was in an accident caused by negligence that resulted in:

  • Brain injury and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Coma
  • Paralysis
  • Severe and disfiguring burns
  • Amputation

Even a subtle brain injury could ultimately be life threatening. At Hodges & Thomas, we not only know the law, but we also understand medicine. Attorney Richard Thomas is a highly trained emergency medical technician (EMT). Mr. Thomas and our legal team know how to effectively articulate to insurance adjusters and jurors the extent of injuries sustained from catastrophic or fatal personal injury accidents.

From the onset, we begin preparing brain injury claims for a favorable trial verdict. Our legal team conducts thorough investigations to determine the cause of catastrophic and fatal accidents. When liability remains unclear, we work with accident scene reconstructionists to evaluate property damage and wreckage from the accident. We also review police reports and witness statements to gather as much evidence as possible. Our detailed approach often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers, knowing we are fully prepared to prove fault at trial.

Our firm's Hermosa Beach brain injury lawyers seek to evaluate cases from a potential juror's perspective. We consult neurologists, neuro-psychologists and other brain injury specialists to help us understand the extent of the brain damage. Our legal team also works with vocational experts and economists to demonstrate the affect a brain injury has had on our clients' ability to maintain their line of work. We seek to incorporate as much evidence as possible in pursuit of securing maximum compensation covering our clients' current and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other relevant damages.

To promote your peace of mind so you can continue your recovery, free of any worries over the cost of our legal services, our law firm operates strictly on a contingency fee basis. You owe no attorney fee unless we win your case.
