BRAIN INJURIES

California Brain Injury Lawyer

Traumatic Brain injuries (TBI’s) are common after accidents, and oftentimes go untreated!

Because of the nature of the injury, if you or a loved one has experienced a Head Injury you should contact a California traumatic brain injury lawyer immediately. You may be entitled to monetary damages.

In many accidents, the head is the most seriously injured part of your body. It is the most common injury in men aged 15-24. This is troubling considering that the brain is probably the most vital part of the human being. Without the brain we would just be a collection of bones with absolutely no coordination. Everything we experience happens in the brain, meaning damaging the brain would rank among one of the worst injuries anyone could suffer.

After TBI’s a victim will have to deal with not only physical pain but emotional damage as well. It is necessary to use the services of an experienced brain injury lawyer early on. The part we play goes farther than the provision of a strong legal backing to help you recover damages, we also ensure that you are compensated for the emotional stress you experience as a result of your injury.

Brain injuries are always as a result of violent and sudden blows to the head. It is the major cause of disability and of course deaths in the United States. How severe the symptoms turn out is as a function of the affected part of the brain. Was your brain injured in a specific location? Is it widespread? And to what extent has the damage gone? What implications will this have on you and your family’s future?

CAUSES OF BRAIN INJURIES

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2013 estimated that Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) was responsible for the death of some 50,000 people. Tender cases of TBI could lead to the occurrence of temporary confusion and headache. More severe cases can result in unconsciousness, amnesia, coma, disability, long term handicap and even death. The causes include but are not limited too –

  1. Fall
  2. Sports Injury
  3. Gunshot wounds
  4. Physical aggression
  5. Road traffic accidents

An estimated 2.8 million people were treated in 2013 for TBI and over 1.3 million cases  of reported TBI were fall related, that’s about 47%. Over 15% reported being struck by/against objects, 14% were vehicle/traffic related, 9% for assault/self harm related TBIs and about 7% was recorded for unknown causes.

SYMPTOMS OF BRAIN INJURY

It should be noted that signs and symptoms arising from sustained  brain injuries could manifest in different times ranging from immediate appearance to appearing within 24 hours, a couple of days after or within a few weeks. These brain injury symptoms are usually grouped into:

  • Physical effects
  • Psychological effects

It’s common to have people notice these signs quite early, but never really link it to the head injury, especially in cases where it takes quite some time for the symptoms to manifest. Some common physical effects initially noticed are swelling and bruising. An increase in pressure in the brain could be very damaging as it could lead to destruction of brain tissues and pressure on blood vessels.

INTERNAL BLEEDING

Two common signs that indicate one could be internally bleeding include:

  1. Battle sign (bruising behind the ear)
  2. Raccoon eyes (bruising around the eyes)

They should not be taken for granted as this could be a potential pointer that there is severe internal bleeding, and a life-threatening injury. However, there are other symptoms that could indicate severe internal bleeding, signs like unconsciousness, dilated pupils, seizures, etc. It is always best to get immediate medical attention when any of these symptoms are experienced.

Looking at the bigger picture concerning brain injuries, you could quickly agree with us and everyone else that there’s nothing pleasant about injuries, especially one that directly affects your movement and consciousness.
