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.

Preparing Brain Injury Claims for a Favorable Trial Verdict
At Hodges & Thomas, both of our firm's partners have more than 30 years of experience handling highly complicated personal injury claims. A key part of our work includes representing clients with permanent and temporary brain injuries stemming from serious accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
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-psychologist and other brain injury specialist 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.
