Personal Injury FAQ

Why do I need an attorney?
When you have been seriously injured in any type of accident that was caused by another person’s negligence, you could be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries and the financial losses brought upon by these injuries. With the help of an experienced lawyer, you can maximize your chances of receiving the amount of compensation that you deserve. The Orange County personal injury lawyers at The Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman are seasoned veterans who have the experience and know-how that you need when you have an accident case in California.

What is traumatic brain injury?
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), also referred to as ‘head injury,’ is when the brain is injured either by a violent strike to the head. Some TBIs involve the object actually entering the brain. Some involve simply trauma to the brain as a result of impact. These injuries can be very serious and even fatal. If you or a loved one has suffered this type of severe injury, please don’t hesitate to contact an attorney right away. The sooner your lawyer begins researching your case, the sooner you can take steps to obtain the damages you deserve.

What should I do if I have been injured in a car accident?
Of course, it is of the utmost importance that you and anyone else involved in the accident receive immediate medical attention. It is important that you refrain from assuming fault in the accident. Even if you believe that you had some responsibility, it is important to allow experts to evaluate the scene in order to determine definitively who was at fault. The Orange County car accident lawyers at Mr. Bridgman’s firm have the resources and legal knowledge that you need when you have been injured in an auto accident in California.

What type of compensation can I expect in my case?
Every case is different and Mr. Bridgman and his team believe that every case should be treated as such. After you meet with your attorney and you discuss your case in full, you will be able to get a more precise answer as to how much compensation you could be entitled to in your case. At The Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman, the personal injury legal team will always strive to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible in your case.

What is a catastrophic injury?
If a medical professional such as a physician or doctor has examined your injuries and determined that you will never fully recover, you have then suffered a catastrophic injury. Examples of such include severe burns, paralysis, certain head injuries, certain spinal cord injuries, accidental dismemberment and others.
