Brain Injuries

Modesto Brain Injury Attorney

Work With a Personal Injury Who Has 20+ Years of Experience

Brain injuries, also known as traumatic brain injuries (TBI), can be incredibly complex to diagnose and treat. These injuries are often invisible but can have significant effects on a person’s life. TBIs can cause debilitating pain, memory loss, a decrease in cognitive function, and other issues that make life difficult. An individual suffering from a brain injury may have to alter their daily routine, miss work, pay for expensive medical treatment or therapy, and make other changes which are disruptive and expensive.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to the negligence of another person or entity, you may be entitled to compensation. A settlement can help you pay for your treatment, medication, lost wages, and other expenses. Our Modesto brain injury attorney at the Law Offices of Dean Petrulakis works tirelessly to get our clients the maximum compensation available. If you choose to work with us, founding attorney Dean Petrulakis will fight insurance companies, defense attorneys, and anyone else who stands in the way of you receiving the settlement you deserve.

Common Causes & Symptoms of TBI

In 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were approximately 288,000 TBI-related hospitalizations in the U.S. Falls and motor vehicle crashes were the most common causes of those brain injuries. That same year, there were 56,800 TBI-related deaths. Americans over the age of 75 are most at risk, but a TBI can affect any person of any age.

The affects of a brain injury can last for a few days, years, or even a lifetime. TBIs can also be caused by a host of different situations.

In the world of personal injury, brain injuries are usually caused one of the following:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Getting struck by or against an object
  • An assault on public property

The following are signs you may be suffering from a TBI:

  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Seizures

If you were in an accident which could have affected your head in any way—including whiplash from a motor vehicle accident—seek medical attention immediately. Then call a lawyer.

  • “Very knowledgeable in his craft.”
    I came to the Law Office of Dean Petrulakis after being referred from a friend. I was previously working with another firm who had done very little to help me, let alone communicate with me. Mr. Petrulakis took time to speak with me over the phone and after consideration of the difficulties related to my case, he agreed to take my case. I was very impressed and appreciative of the genuine concern and compassion he relayed. He is very knowledgeable in his craft, and equally kind and personable. He and his assistant Jennifer were amazing communicators who kept me well informed without delay. My case was handled quickly, professionally, and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Dean Petrulakis to everyone/anyone who has been injured and needs representation.
