be more focal, less dramatic, but just as harmful or disabling. Whether
your seizures are caused by a brain injury or any other issue connected
to the negligence of another person, be sure to seek legal counsel right
away. Biren Law Group's personal injury lawyers have extensive experience
handling cases involving all types of seizure disorders. For more than

like to discuss your injury-related seizures.
What Causes Seizures?
Seizures are caused by a malfunction in the brain.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) will occasionally cause the onset of seizures similar to those of
epileptics, who are born with the problem. Sometimes, the first indications
of the onset of a seizure disorder are staring spells, where the person
appears to temporarily zone out. These episodes can actually be focal
point seizures, which can later develop into grand mal seizures. Because
focal point seizures are difficult to recognize, family members should
be on the lookout for this type of behavior and, if it occurs, make sure
that the person's doctor is made aware of the development.
Additionally, seizures can occur due to electric shock from defective equipment
or even medical malpractice during child birth. Seizures may develop weeks,
months, or even years after the initial incident or accident.
What are the Symptoms of Seizures?
The following are common symptoms of seizures:
- Clenching of teeth
- Rapid, fluttering eye movements
- Sudden mood changes
- Muscle spasms
- Blacking out and confusion
How Seizures Can Affect a Victim's Life
The onset of
seizures can have serious consequences on a victim's life. If you have a grand
mal seizure, your doctor is required to report that fact to the Department
of Motor Vehicles, and it is likely that your license will be suspended—at
least until the seizures are controlled with medication. However, seizure
medications can have adverse effects too, especially for women who are
pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant.
