About Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause serious, life-altering effects following a work related injury. Traumatic brain injuries can be mild or severe, but leave untold harm regardless. A traumatic brain injury can affect the motor controls of the body and cognitive brain function, resulting in a person becoming disabled and needing lifelong medical care. When you have suffered a serious work related accident that has left you with this type of injury it is especially important to consult with a Riverside workers' compensation lawyer to protect your legal rights.
Although you are entitled to medical care by law under workers' compensation laws, when your injury is of this magnitude it is important to have someone working on your side to ensure you receive all the benefits you may be entitled to. When a person is injured to such an extent that they will no longer be able to perform their normal job duties, they are entitled to permanent disability benefits, possibly in a lump sum distribution. Having a knowledgeable legal counsel navigating the complex workers' comp laws on your behalf is important to the outcome of your case. The Pacific Attorney Group has over 35 years of combined experience helping workers injured in job related accidents.

With our legal expertise, we can seek to maximize the full benefits you are entitled to so that you and your family are cared for following your traumatic brain injury.
