Sacramento Brain Injury Attorney
Helping People in Northern California Get Compensation for Their Injuries
Our brains work like a high powered computer that is in charge of juggling numerous tasks. From regulating our breathing to telling our muscles to move, the brain is perhaps our most under-appreciated organ.
When the brain is seriously damaged in an accident, it can result in substantial behavioral, emotional, and social impairments that can make doing even the simplest of day-to-day tasks difficult, if not impossible to do on your own.
If you have suffered a brain injury caused by another person’s negligence, you should speak with our attorneys about what legal options are available to you.
Common Causes of Brain Injuries
The following situations can result with people suffering brain injuries:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Slip & Fall Accidents
- Machinery Malfunction Accidents
- Violent Assaults
- Medical Malpractice
Symptoms of a Brain Injury
After a head injury occurs, the following symptoms might indicate that a person has suffered a brain injury:
- Losing consciousness for several minutes or hours
- A headache that won’t go away, or continues to grow worse
- Vomiting or feelings of nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
- Dilated pupils
- Clear fluids coming from the nose or ears
- Difficulty waking from sleep
- Weakness or numbness in fingers and toes
- Difficulty coordinating body movements
If you or a loved one has exhibited these symptoms after suffering a head injury, you should immediately be checked by a doctor for a possible brain injury.
Traumatic and Non-traumatic Brain Injuries
A common misconception about brain injuries is that they can only be sustained by a direct hit to the head or when the victim is knocked unconscious. In reality, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s) can happen in many circumstances, commonly occurring as a result of whiplash from automotive accidents. Victims of brain injuries may also suffer from non-traumatic brain injuries that still have devastating impacts sustained in non-traumatic accidents. Many brain injuries may go unnoticed at first when they occur in low impact accidents. Our attorneys are well-experienced in cases of brain injury and the impact they may have on your life. We are here to help you through your case and help you recover some of the losses you have suffered as a result of your injury.
What Compensation Can I Receive for a Brain Injury?
The damage caused by a brain injury can affect numerous aspects of a person’s life. Some people require life-long medical care, while others require constant monitoring because they are comatose. According to the Centers for Disease Control, roughly 5.3 million Americans with traumatic brain injuries are currently in need of life-long help with their daily routines.
Our attorney can review the details of your case and determine if you are eligible to revive compensation for the following:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Medical Monitoring
- Impairment of Earning Capacity
- Pain & Suffering
- Lifestyle Changes
- Future Damages
- Punitive Damages
