A traumatic brain injury is among the most devastating injuries a person can suffer. In the most serious cases, the injury can lead to a loss of motor skills, as well as dramatic impairments to the ability to move, speak, and care for oneself. Traumatic brain injuries are too often the consequence of automobile or motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and injuries sustained playing full-contact sports, such as football and hockey.
While some brain injuries cause only mild dizziness, some difficulty concentrating, and lingering headaches, even seemingly minor brain injuries must be taken seriously, as the true extent of the injury may not be immediately evident. Only with comprehensive medical treatment can a brain injury be properly diagnosed and treated.
Residents of California, including Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties as well as throughout Arizona should contact the personal injury lawyers at Hodes Milman Liebeck if they have a case involving a traumatic brain injury, since the expense of caring for the injury and other associated costs can skyrocket very quickly.
Types of Brain Injury
Head and brain injuries fall into one of two categories: closed and open. A closed head injury is caused by an external force and results in brain damage without skull penetration. An open head injury is caused by a penetrating wound to the head and results in ripping or crushing of delicate brain tissue. These types of injuries can range in severity, from mild to traumatic. While a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause significant changes in a person’s abilities, personality, or behavior, a mild brain injury can also have a tremendous impact on a person’s quality of life. However, an individual suffering from a mild brain injury typically appears to be fine to casual observers or acquaintances. As a result, many brain injury cases are extremely challenging from a legal standpoint. Fortunately, the brain injury attorneys at our Los Angeles area firm understand the unique complexities of brain injury cases and can help victims obtain appropriate compensation for their injuries.
