Every day, thousands of Californians are suffering from the effects of traumatic brain injury. Even though traumatic brain injuries aren’t always detected right away, these types of injuries can cause unbelievable misery to victims and families.
Of course, insurance companies will try to claim that these symptoms aren’t the result of any one incident, and try to avoid paying you or your loved one the compensation you’re entitled to. That’s where we come in.
How common are traumatic brain injuries (TBI)?
The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control states that there are roughly 235,000 serious brain injuries in the U.S. every year.
What causes traumatic brain injuries?
Some of the main causes of brain injuries across California are:
Athletes are also common sufferers of TBIs, especially those in rough sports like football, hockey, or combat sports.
What are the symptoms of traumatic brain injury?
The symptoms of your brain injury may be vastly different from someone else’s, but these types of injuries often carry added costs like inability to work, lifestyle changes, and stress on relationships with loved ones. Brain injury symptoms include:
Difficulty with motor or verbal control
Mood swings or behavioral problems
Aural and visual difficulties
Loss of sexual function
These symptoms may get better or worse as time passes, with some people needing long-term help to perform daily tasks.
In addition, these symptoms might not appear immediately. Some may take years to manifest, which is why seeking medical attention after a head injury is so important.
Does a person have to lose consciousness to suffer a TBI?
No, not always. Although losing consciousness is never a good sign, not blacking out after a head injury doesn’t always mean you’re fine.
How can I get the compensation I deserve after a traumatic brain injury?
One of the biggest problems with traumatic brain injuries is that the sufferer needs help pursuing those responsible for their injury. Attempting to go at it alone just isn’t worth the added pain and frustration.
