California Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

Did You or Someone You Love Sustain a Head Injury in California?

Brain injuries, sometimes called traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur after a person suffers blunt force trauma or whiplash. Car accidents and falls are major causes of TBIs in the United States. TBIs are a very common type of injury that is responsible for hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations each year.

Statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that brain injuries resulted in 288,000 hospitalizations in 2014. Among that 288,000 TBIs, 23,000 cases involved children. Falls and car accidents were responsible for a majority of TBI hospitalizations in 2014.

TBIs vary in severity. While some people may recover from a TBI without much difficulty, others can have lasting issues that may even result in a permanent disability.

Severe TBIs could make a person require around-the-clock care and be unable to work. For this reason, it is important for victims of severe TBIs or their family members to consider consulting with an attorney. This is especially true for TBIs that resulted from car accidents, drowning, falls, or assault.

Depending on the circumstances, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against the party that caused the injury. Insurance companies may not pay for your damages in full, so a lawsuit may be necessary.

Compensation from a brain injury lawsuit can help pay for damages associated with a TBI, such as lost income, medical bills, home modifications, medical equipment, and loss of future earnings.

At Wells Call Injury Lawyers, our California brain injury attorneys are dedicated to helping brain injury victims pursue justice against the parties responsible for their pain and suffering. Our attorneys have a proven record of success in helping our clients obtain compensation.

What Are Common Head Injury Symptoms?

Traumatic brain injuries are almost always a result of a direct blow to the head that damages brain cells. The effects of a TBI are often treatable, but your best chance at recovery requires prompt and decisive medical attention.

Our Fairfield brain injury lawyers understand that this potentially means hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. It can also include expensive long-term rehabilitation or treatment and lost time from work. If you are recovering from a serious head injury or caring for a loved one with a TBI, then you should focus on getting the medical treatment you need.

Some common injury symptoms that could be the result of a TBI include:

  • Loss of Consciousness: If you are fainting or becoming lightheaded after your accident, you may have a head injury. Dizziness, headaches, cognitive problems and blurred vision may occur immediately after your accident or sometime later. Symptoms of a serious concussion may be revealed weeks or months after your injury.
  • Vestibular Injury: Usually, nausea and problems with equilibrium point to a vestibular injury. These injuries damage your inner ear and can move to the brain. Regrettably, these injuries are frequently misdiagnosed.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Symptoms: Nightmares, unwanted memories of trauma, anxiety, heightened reactions and depression are signs of PTSD.
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder: Also known as TMJ, this injury involves inflammation of a bone hinge that connects your jaw to your skull. Unfortunately, if you develop TMJ, you may have a TBI.

After you seek proper medical care for a potential brain injury, then contact a personal injury lawyer to mitigate your financial risk.

What Are the Leading Causes of TBI in California?

Regrettably, there are many potential causes of TBI as virtually any accident can result in head trauma. However, a California personal injury lawyer can help you identify the cause of the accident and pursue compensation from the liable party.

Some common injuries that can result in TBI sometimes involve:

  • Slip and Fall: Trip, slips and fall accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. Usually, victims of these injuries can file premises liability claims against the party responsible for maintaining the property. For example, a property manager may fail to address uneven surfaces or improper lighting. If this is the case, then you can pursue a personal injury claim.
  • Automobile Accidents: Any automobile accident can be serious. Car accidents, bicycle, or motorcycle crashes, and truck accidents can all result in a TBI.
  • Oxygen Loss: Generally, an anoxic brain injury occurs when oxygen is not supplied to the brain for four or more minutes. Unfortunately, the longer the brain goes without oxygen the more widespread the damage. Swimming accidents are a leading cause of oxygen loss-related injuries, although anoxic brain injuries are also common birth injuries.

After a TBI, our law firm uses medical, economic, and insurance experts to help determine the full impact of the trauma. With a team of professionals, we can work to discover the full extent of your impairment and the true cost of the care you require moving forward.
