Dealing with the impact of a traumatic brain injury

If you suffered a brain injury in a California car accident, you know firsthand how these types of injuries can be different from person to person. Because everyone is different, the way that your injury will affect you depends on individual factors such as your health at the time of the injury and what part of your head suffered the impact. 

It is impossible to predict the way that your brain injury will manifest. The symptoms of your injury may seem minor at first, but they can change and grow worse over time. Victims of all types of traumatic brain injuries need continued medical care, and you could have a rightful claim to financial compensation for your immediate needs and those you may experience in the future.

Types of brain injuries from car accidents

There are several different types of brain injuries car accident victims may experience. While they range in severity, they can all have an impact on your life that can last for months or years. Some of the most common types of TBIs from car accidents include the following:

  • Concussion: A concussion is a type of TBI that many people believe is minor, yet it can have a major impact on a victim's life. In fact, it can take months to recover from a concussion, and you may experience headaches, difficulty concentrating and other issues.
  • Diffuse axonal: This type of traumatic brain injury often happens when a person experiences strong rotational forces, such as those that can occur in collisions. Victims may experience damage to nerves in the brain and cognitive function.
  • Contusion: This is essentially a bruise on the brain, but it can also lead to bleeding. Sometimes, contusion victims need surgery.

Regardless of the type of injury you experienced or the way it is affecting your life, you do not have to deal with the complex aftermath on your own. 

How do you know if you have a claim?

Victims of car accidents may not realize they have grounds for a civil claim after an accident. If you suffered a TBI because of an accident caused by a negligent or reckless driver, you may be able to claim financial compensation through a personal injury claim. 

You may find it helpful to seek a complete evaluation of your case in order to understand the legal options available to you. TBI victims can hold liable parties accountable for their pain and suffering.
