What is a traumatic brain injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when (1) a violent blow to the head causes the brain to strike against the skull or (2) an object penetrates the skull. Symptoms of brain injuries include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss
- Blurred vision
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Sleep and balance problems
- Nausea or vomiting
- Irritability, anxiety, and depression
While brain injury victims often face a lengthy recovery period, some may require life-long care. At SoCal Injury Lawyers, we have the skills and experience to help you obtain the medical care you need and the compensation you deserve.
Common Causes of Brain Injuries in Southern California
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the leading causes of brain injuries include:
Falls account for almost half of the brain injuries. Construction workers are at a high risk of being injured in falls from ladders, scaffolding, roofs and other heights. Anyone can suffer a brain injury in a slip and fall accident, however, and older adults are particularly vulnerable.
Car accidents are the second leading cause of brain injuries. Vehicle occupants can suffer traumatic brain injuries in high-impact collisions, while motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians can also sustain brain injuries when they are struck by a car.
Sports injuries are common in contact sports (e.g. football, boxing, hockey); however, traumatic brain injuries can also occur in baseball, lacrosse and skateboarding.
Violent crimes such as assault and domestic violence often result in brain injuries. While violent crimes may result in criminal charges, it is possible to file a civil lawsuit against the defendant regardless of whether he or she is charged or convicted.
If you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury, SoCal Injury Lawyers will provide you with aggressive representation. We will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of your brain injury, identify the responsible party, and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve.
How Much is My Brain Injury Claim Worth?
The amount of damages you may be able to recover depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is the severity of your brain injury. At SoCal Injury Lawyers, we will work tirelessly to help you recover the following damages:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term care
- Permanent disability
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Though money cannot undo the harm you have endured, you are entitled to receive financial resources to cover ongoing medical care and other accommodations that may be necessary.
The Lasting Repercussions of Brain Injuries
Depending on the extent of the brain injury, victims may experience cognitive impairments (e.g. memory loss), personality changes, mood disorders and depression. Many brain injury victims require rehabilitation to regain their motor skills, while some may require lifelong care and assistance with daily functions such as bathing, dressing, and eating. With so much at stake, it is crucial to have proper representation.
