Traumatic Brain Injuries

Put your trust in our attorneys

One of the most serious and life-changing injuries a person can suffer in an accident is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). When an individual is in a personal injury accident that involves a high impact, such as a car accident or a slip and fall accident, the victim could hit their head hard enough to cause severe bruising and swelling of the brain.

When this happens, parts of the brain could suffer from restricted blood and oxygen flow, resulting in serious - and often permanent - brain damage. The victim's memory could be temporary or permanently affected and they might even suffer from a reduced mental capacity.

Types of TBIs

Traumatic brain injuries cover a wide range. Some of the most common - and most serious - TBIs include:

  • Concussion (shaking of the brain)
  • Contusion (bruising of the brain)
  • Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) (shaking of the brain, plus tears in connective brain tissue)
  • Penetrating skull injury (an object penetrates the skull and brain)
  • Anoxic Brain Injury (ABI) (a brain injury caused by lack of oxygen)

There are many other types of brain injuries. And all of them can be caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of other people. That's why it's important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible if you or a loved one sustained a TBI in an accident.

Symptoms of brain injury

Signs of brain trauma can be easy or difficult to spot. Common symptoms of a TBI include:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Disorientation
  • Headache
  • Seizures
  • Unconsciousness
  • Vegetative state (in extreme cases)

Anyone who suffers from TBI will require extensive medical care that is not likely to be fully covered by insurance. As a result, a victim could experience extreme financial hardship on top of their physical suffering unless they fight for compensation through a personal injury claim. If you or a loved one has experienced a serious brain injury in an accident, consult with a Walnut Creek personal injury lawyer right away.
