Can I File A Brain Injury Lawsuit On Behalf Of A Loved One?
Yes. If a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury and that loved one cannot appreciate or understand their rights, then under California law, a family member may step in to become their guardian. And as their guardian, they may assert any of the legal rights that the injured party has. So the answer to the question is yes, a loved one can file a lawsuit or make a claim on behalf of a seriously-injured party.
