What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain typically results from some type of violent blow to the
head, whether through a closed head injury or a penetrating injury, such
as a gunshot wound.
Some common causes of TBIs include:
Some TBIs can show more serious symptoms long after the initial impact.
For example, the brain may slam into the skull, but only have internal
damage. Without any external signs of damage, recognizing that a serious
brain injury took place may be very difficult.
Understanding the Severity of TBIs
In most cases, traumatic brain injuries fall into three different categories:
mild, moderate, and severe. Even head injuries that are deemed as “mild”
will result in serious health challenges and difficulties.
Injury victims may suffer from the following:
Cognitive problems, which include impaired memory, lack of concentration, poor attention
span, slowed learning, difficulty reasoning, and other issues.
Emotional and behavioral problems, which include depression, irritability, aggression, and other behavioral changes.
Physical problems, which include fatigue, headaches, loss of coordination, sensory losses,
sleep disturbance, coma, hemorrhage and seizures.
Maximizing Compensation in TBI Cases
We apply a multipronged approach to the challenge of maximizing compensation
in TBI cases. Performing a detailed investigation of the accident using
seasoned investigators, accident reconstructionists, and other experts
is the first step to obtaining compensation for your injury. If liability
is not proven, then you are not entitled to be compensated no matter how
seriously you are injured.
In addition to working with doctors, life care planners, economists, and
expert witnesses to document your damage, our Los Angeles traumatic brain
injury lawyers spend a great deal of time and energy gathering testimony
from your close friends, families, co-workers, and neighbors to strengthen
your claim. Time and again, our thorough, in-depth approach maximizes
our clients' financial recoveries.
