Lanter provides free consultations that allow clients to enjoy a comfortable and confident partnership, not simply a professional connection.

I want to help you put the pieces of your life back together, beginning with obtaining the financial settlement you are entitled to.

Common Causes of Head Injuries

I will consult with physicians and trauma specialists to uncover the facts behind your head injury, and exactly what it will take to make you whole again.

Common brain injury causes in the Los Angeles area include, but are not limited to:

  • Assault
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Blasts (military, law enforcement, firefighters, construction)
  • Car collisions
  • Falling debris at work/public places
  • Medical malpractice

Representing Your Best Interests 

At The Law Office of Marvin S. Lanter, I am only concerned with representing your best interests. Head injury victims can suffer from numerous conditions as a result of head trauma, including memory loss, and behavioral, cognitive and emotional side effects. Even the mildest cases require medical intervention, and the severe ones can result in life-altering healthcare needs going forward. These injuries require a host of physicians, medical staff and therapists to help the victim improve, and working full time while undergoing treatment is usually is not an option. I believe that the person who was negligent, causing your brain injury, is financially obligated for your medical care, and lost wages. The continual process of recovery from a brain injury can devastate families, requiring a loved one to become a full time caregiver. When this is the case, your financial standing may be ruined, as you and your family work tirelessly on your physical and mental recovery. Allow an experienced attorney to fight for your financial recovery while you focus on your medical and therapy appointments. I will leave no detail to chance as I pursue the negligent party and their insurance provider to compensate you with the proper financial settlement. A Traumatic Brain Injury is a Severe Impairment.

Q & A With Marvin S. Lanter

What Are the First Steps in Pursuing a Claim?

These brain injury cases – these are difficult cases.  You have to know exactly what to do.  Well first, many of these cases involve some type of blow to the head.  Just two that come to mind right away – I had one case where a grappling hook hit a worker at a construction site, and another case where a pedestrian, unfortunately, was hit by a truck driven by a parking valet and then she hit her head on the ground. That is just the first step. The next step would be to make sure that the injured persons, my clients, YOU, get to the right medical doctors.  Now, what type of medical doctors are there involving brain injury cases?  Well, first, there is the primary care physician and after that there is the neurologist.  But then after that, there is a more specialized type of medical doctor, this is the neurosurgeon and somebody called the neuropsychologist.  And the neuropsychologist can, in fact, run a series of tests to determine whether, in fact, you have these types of brain injuries. And then, of course, we can use various types of very sophisticated diagnostic tools – CAT scans, MRI’s, PET scans, brain scans – to further prove, actually objectively prove, that you suffered a brain injury.  And the important point, also, is during this entire time for you and your family, I will be there each and every step of the way. And I will be there for you when you make that call. I know how troubling these things can be because people with brain injuries start acting “not as they are normally”, and this is very important for the case, by the way, though I will be there every step of the way.

Do I Need an Attorney for a Brain Injury Case?

First, what I do, of course, is gather the evidence which is very, very important. I take that evidence and I mold it into a very definitive complaint that will be filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court or in US District Federal Court. And it’s by taking the evidence, and molding the evidence into the proper courses of action that will give us the best shot in maximizing monetary compensation.

Can a Lawyer Help me Find the Right Doctor or Specialist?

I have found during my years of experience that some of these brain injury cases are subtle. That is why it is important that if something doesn’t seem right, about you or your loved ones, we make sure that they first see a neurologist to start identifying what can be wrong. And then, if in fact indicated, we point you or your loved one to more specialized medical practitioners.

Who Pays for the Medical Expenses?

Well, first we examine whether your health insurance will take care of it. Then after that I have a series of neurologists that will take the case on a lien. That means they will wait to collect their bill until the end of the case. You still owe them money, but, they will wait until the end of the case for them to receive the money for their services.

If you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury, no matter how mild or severe, the repercussions can be life changing. The medical care and therapy necessary to regain full activity can be lengthy and exhausting, and I can help relieve the burden of both. Contact The Law Office of Marvin S. Lanter today at  (310) 276-1142 to understand how I can help you pursue a financial settlement that will allow you to heal, and get your life back without delay.
