Brain Damage


California Brain Injury Attorneys

Every year thousands of people suffer brain injuries that result in catastrophic personal injuries or death. The term brain injury applies to an open or closed head injury resulting in impairment in one or more areas, such as cognition, language, memory, attention, reasoning, abstract thinking, judgment, problem-solving, sensory, perceptual and motor abilities, psychosocial behavior, physical functions, information processing and speech. A person who suffers a head or brain injury may experience headaches, confusion, amnesia, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, double vision and ringing in the ears. A victim may also have problems with concentration and short-term memory. In mild concussions, these symptoms may be temporary and last only a few hours. In cases of major head trauma, these symptoms may continue for some time or may even be permanent. The symptoms of a serious head injury or brain injury may not become apparent until some time has passed from the initial impact.

Brain Injuries and Traumatic Brain Injuries

Brain injuries and traumatic brain injuries oftentimes permanently affect a person's ability to work and perform tasks necessary for daily living. A brain injury can cause paralysis, loss of vital body functions, and even death. Other symptoms associated with a brain injury include memory loss, headaches, sleep disorders, fatigue, depression, and visual impairment. A person who has suffered a serious head or brain injury does not have to be involved in a high-speed motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accident, collision or suffer a concussion to sustain a traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries can be caused by a basic slip and fall, a construction site accident, or a work-related accident.

How Do I Know If I Have A Brain Injury?

One of the problems with a brain injury is that it may not manifest itself in noticeable symptoms immediately after an accident. As serious as a brain injury may be, it is possible to sustain such an injury and not feel hurt or injured until some time after the accident. The symptoms of a serious head injury or brain injury may not become apparent until some time has passed from the initial impact. Our brain injury attorneys can help you.
