A serious head injury is a life changer for anyone. In many cases, a car accident, a fall or a sports injury sends an injured person to the emergency room followed up by hospitalization, therapy and recuperation time at home. Medical bills mount up quickly, on top of other unwelcome outcomes such as physical pain and a dramatic disruption of life as usual.
If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), you naturally want to get the best medical care available. You also need skillful legal representation in order to recover damages from a negligent party or parties and/or insurance carrier(s). A brain injury lawyer who is also a board certified neurosurgeon, Dr. Aaron Filler in Santa Monica is uniquely positioned to advocate for you before claims adjusters, judges and juries with authority and persuasion.
In the past, even in the setting of a severe concussion, it was often hard to prove in court that a person actually was suffering from memory losses and cognitive impairments. Now – with Diffusion Tensor Imaging – it is often possible to locate, visualize and prove the injury.
Tensor Law PC – in cooperation with the Neurography Institute – offers Diffusion Tensor Imaging of the brain in a 3Tesla MRI scanner. The analysis and interpretation can be performed on a medical basis by Dr. Filler through his medical practice. However, Tensor Law PC can perform the DTI study and maintain the results as privileged and confidential when Aaron Filler, is retained as the injured person's attorney.
