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.
