Los Angeles Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys: Traumatic Brain Injury

TBI occurs when the head or brain experiences a jolt, bump, or blow. These abrupt or violent movements can dishevel the brain’s normal activity. Sustained injuries vary from mild to severe.

 A mild TBI might make you experience disorientation or a brief loss of consciousness. On the other hand, a severe TBI may result in a lengthy period of passing out or memory loss.

The effects of this injury may last a few days or even for the rest of your life. It can take inexorable effects on your health and can lead to death if devoid of the appropriate medical treatment. That’s why it’s crucial to seek help from the top-rated Los Angeles traumatic brain injury lawyer to help you get the compensation you deserve. It should cover your present and future medical expenses.

Causes of TBI Occurrences in California

Generally, accidents happen because of some people’s negligence. If they only practice their duty of care, no one is hurt or suffers from catastrophic injuries, such as TBI. The most common causes of TBI include:

Motor vehicle accidents. This type of accident involves pedestrians and all kinds of motor vehicles, such as cars, buses, trucks, bikes, and motorcycles.

Falls. Slipping and falling afterward can make a victim bump his head on a hard surface such as pavement or a wall made of stone or cement, or even a huge rock. 

Violence or gunshot wound. This involves crime and deliberate action to hurt or kill someone such as domestic violence.

Military attack or bomb explosion. It can accidentally happen during a military exercise or a military attack where other people become a victim without the intention to harm them.

Product malfunction. An unfortunate victim can suffer from TBI due to using a defective product, such as a malfunctioning nail gun.

Symptoms of TBI

The symptoms of your injury will depend if it’s mild or serious. Mild injury symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Speech problem
  • Loss of consciousness lasting for a few seconds or minutes
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sleep troubles
  • Feeling confounded, disoriented, or bewildered
  • General malaise or lethargy
  • Light or sound sensitivity
  • Blurred vision or ringing in the ears

A moderate or more severe TBI, on the other hand, will have symptoms, such as:

  • Persistent headache
  • Dilated pupils 
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Loss of coordination
  • Loss of consciousness that lasts for several minutes or even hours
  • Garbled speech
  • Weakness or numbness in toes and fingers

Damages You Can Recover from a Traumatic Brain Injury

Sustaining a TBI also means expensive medical treatment, which is physically, emotionally, and financially disadvantageous. When you sustained TBI due to other people’s negligence, you have the grounds to seek compensation from the responsible person or body. Damages you may recover include:

  • Medical expenses related to the accident
  • Salary loss
  • Inability to earn
  • Disability
  • Property damages
  • Emotional anguish
  • Pain and suffering

Proving the Defendant’s Negligence 

The key to a successful case is proving the defendant’s negligence. You can do so with the help of a skilled Los Angeles TBI attorney. He can help you prove that:

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care 
  • The defendant violated that duty
  • The violated duty lead to your traumatic brain injury
  • Your injury must not have occurred if not for the defendant’s negligence 

California Statute of Limitations

Generally, a TBI victim has two years to file a claim from the date of the brain injury. However, if medical malpractice caused your injury, you only have one year to file. Moreover, if a government entity, such as a city, town, county, or school caused your injury, you only have six months to file a case.
