Brain Injuries Due to an Accident
A brain injury can cause serious medical problems and may change a person’s life forever. It also tends to have a serious impact on the family members of the victim as well, as brain injuries often require extensive, ongoing care and can prohibit an individual from returning to or obtaining any gainful employment.
Brain injuries are often suffered by people involved in serious, traumatic incidents, including those involving:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Truck collisions
- Defective products
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Slip and falls
- On-the-job injuries
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice/negligence
Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injuries that have not been diagnosed soon after an accident can result in serious problems.
To detect a brain injury, look for the following symptoms and warning signs:
- Change in behavior
- Mood swings
- Mobility difficulties
- Poor balance
- Poor coordination
- Loss of memory
- Impulsive behavior
- Loss of vision
- Loss of taste
- Aggressive behavior/frustration
- Inability to focus
- Hearing loss
- Breathing difficulties
A TBI not only affects the victim but also the people around them. It is not uncommon for a brain injury victim to require full-time care and extensive medical attention. This can be a burden on family members, both financially and emotionally.
Why You Should Talk to a Lawyer about Your Brain Injury
Brain injuries can be difficult to detect, especially if they are closed head injuries because there are very few outer signs or symptoms. Brain injury symptoms and effects can even arise months after the incident that caused the brain injury. This can make your brain injury claim very difficult to handle without the experienced assistance of the California brain injury attorneys at Torem & Associates.
