Bay Area Brain Injury Attorney

Bay Area Brain Injury Attorney

Brain injuries are among the most difficult injuries a person can sustain. Because these injuries affect the brain, they are not only unpredictable but can also be extremely difficult to treat effectively. Brain injuries are often catastrophic injuries from which victims are unable to attain full recovery. If you or someone you love has sustained a brain injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence, consult with a knowledgeable and experienced Bay Area brain injury attorney today. 

Traumatic Brain Injuries

The  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) define traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) as injuries that disrupt the brain’s normal functioning and that are often caused by a jolt, blow, or bump to the head or by penetration of the head. The CDC shares a variety of statistics related to TBIs in the United States, including: 

  • In one year, there were approximately a combined 2.9 million visits to the ER, hospitalizations, and deaths related to TBIs.
  • Falls accounted for nearly half of all TBIs and were the leading cause of hospitalizations related to TBIs.
  • Car accidents were the second leading cause of hospitalizations related to TBIs. 

Severe Brain Injuries

When a TBI is severe, it can seriously alter the course of the victim’s life. Such injuries require hospitalization, specialized care, and – often – ongoing medical treatment. A severe TBI can negatively affect the victim’s basic ability to function, including his or her: 

  • Thinking 
  • Memory
  • Ability to learn
  • Physical coordination and balance
  • Vision, hearing, and speech
  • Emotional control

It’s a lot to comprehend, and it’s a lot to endure. A serious brain injury can permanently change someone’s life, including his or her ability to earn an income (or to work at all), to take care of himself or herself, to engage in household chores, to drive, and more. 

The Emotional Component of a TBI

The most difficult component of a TBI – in addition to the overwhelming physical and financial consequences – can be the emotional effects. Because these serious injuries affect the brain, they can alter the victim’s very sense of self and personality. These effects tend to have negative consequences in every facet of the sufferer’s life. This often includes the victim’s relationships with loved ones – the very people he or she needs most after enduring such a devastating injury. All told, the negative consequences of a severe TBI can be extremely difficult to adequately calculate. An experienced lawyer can help determine the value of your claim.
