As a defense attorney, Ms. Odjaghian brings with her a unique perspective in prosecuting plaintiffs’ catastrophic injury cases. Through her experience, she is able to anticipate the defense position and negotiate optimal results on behalf of traumatically brain injured workers. During its tenure, Ms. Odjaghian’s prior firm obtained over $17,000,000 in record breaking settlement awards on behalf of catastrophically injured workers.
Our firm represents a very select number of injured workers who have suffered from traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries on the job. We take on a small number of clients precisely because we understand and appreciate that catastrophic injuries, particularly traumatic brain injuries are life changing occurrences that require super personalized care and attention. Through our defense practice, we see firsthand what the majority of claims in Southern California are comprised of. Unfortunately, a large number of claims filed on behalf of injured workers include less serious and even frivolous claims and or meritless psychiatric claims that tie up insurance company resources and encumber the system for catastrophically injured workers who need those resources the most. If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury on the job, we feel that it is our job as your attorneys to ensure that your case gets the special attention it deserves and that your medical and monetary benefits receive first priority. We have a wide network of resources ranging from Spanish and Chinese speaking interpreters, home nurse health care providers, acute treatment facilities, and state of the art neurological rehabilitation facilities at our disposal who share the same perspective on providing catastrophically injured workers with the care and life support they need to help achieve the optimal level of rehabilitation and improvement in quality of living.
If you or a loved one have been involved in a serious injury such as a car accident, explosion, or fall on the job and suffer severe symptoms that cannot be explained, you are not alone. Unlike orthopedic injuries which are visible and easy to detect, many traumatic brain injuries are latent and often go undetected. Brain injured patient’s symptoms are often dismissed as being imagined, feigned, or psychiatric in nature. We pride ourselves on our unique ability to challenge the medical providers and obtain the necessary clinical testing to bring to light the source of the unexplained symptoms and coordinate the rehabilitation necessary to restore as much of the pre-injury capacity as clinically possible. We are also dedicated to ensuring that our client’s healthcare and financial needs are met far beyond the point of settlement of their case.
Catastrophic injuries are life changing not only for the injured person but also for their family and loved ones. If a spouse or a loved one’s cognition is impaired as a result of brain injury, it places a tremendous burden on others in the family both emotionally and otherwise. It is terribly disheartening to have a loved one who just is not the same person they were before and there is nothing you can do to help them. It is not unusual for spouses or family members to take time off from their own day job or dedicate every waking hour after work care taking for their debilitated loved one. Our approach is to empower the family members by fighting to get them compensated for their time and by getting them the support they need by facilitating medical care, transportation services, and even home health care when applicable.
We take all of the measures necessary to safeguard and plan for your future because we realize that brain injury is a life changing experience that brings with it a new set of realities. Our attorneys are here to make sure that you are well taken care of every step of the way.
