UNDERSTANDING TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES

For a brain injury attorney to effectively represent you, they must understand the specifics of what happened to you. This starts by understanding the nature of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

A TBI is any injury or trauma to the head that interrupts normal brain function. TBIs can be mild, moderate, or severe. 

  • Mild TBI: Mild TBIs, or concussions, stem from a bump or blow to the head. They’re not life-threatening but they may cause headaches, fatigue, or temporary loss of consciousness. 
  • Moderate and severe TBIs: Moderate or severe TBIs can also stem from head bumps or blows. However, they may also include penetrative wounds. These TBIs cause more serious symptoms, such as cognitive impairment, mood changes, balance problems, and even coma.

While in a coma, a TBI victim is unable to speak, move, or respond to commands. They are also unable to carry out basic functions on their own, such as using the bathroom or bathing, thus requiring assistance from a medical professional. A TBI can leave a victim physically helpless.

Some comatose TBI victims never regain consciousness, leaving their loved ones without closure. The majority who wake from their coma suffer from long-lasting effects.

Victims of a severe TBI may experience some degree of paralysis or brain damage that impairs their ability to function normally, such as the development of a seizure disorder. Memory loss is a common side effect. Those who suffer from a severe TBI may develop more serious concentration and memory problems as time progresses.

The aftermath of a serious injury can be very scary for both the victim and their family. Sometimes they don’t know who to turn to for emotional support, and in the event that the injury was a result of someone else’s actions, the idea of seeking legal help to assist in the recovery process can be daunting.

Without the proper support system, especially when dealing with the legal repercussions, a victim may find themselves victimized all over again and unable to access the total compensation they may be legally entitled to. Contact our brain injury attorney in Los Angeles for help today.

TYPES OF HEAD INJURIES THAT WE CAN HELP YOU WITH

If you’ve been in an accident in California that resulted in head injuries, your most important step is getting immediate medical attention. The May Firm ensures that all of our clients have access to the medical care they need to achieve the best recovery possible while we do the heavy lifting to ensure that the people, companies, and insurance companies responsible for compensating your family take care of your medical bills and provide replacement for lost income and other costs associated with the injuries they inflicted on you.

You don’t have to fight this next chapter of your life alone. We have extensive experience investigating and pursuing compensation to help you rebuild your life.

Types of Head Injuries: 

  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI): ABIs occur after birth. They may be caused by oxygen deprivation, infection, or trauma.  
  • Diffuse Axonal Brain Injury: Brain cells are cut, or severely damaged, due to a serious impact or jolt to the brain. It often causes a coma or death.  
  • Subdural Hematoma: A subdural hematoma occurs when blood pools between the skull and brain. It can be fatal if left untreated or undetected. 
  • Brain Aneurysm: A brain aneurysm is a weak spot in a brain artery. If left untreated, it can burst and cause severe injury or death. 
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): A general term for any head trauma that causes loss of normal function, even for a moment. 
  • Anoxic Brain Injury: Anoxic brain injuries occur when the brain is starved of oxygen. Brain cells begin to die which leads to severe impairment if not treated immediately. 
  • Focal Brain Injury: Focal brain injuries are localized to one spot. An example is a brain bruise. A victim can have more than one focal brain injury.  
  • Concussion: A concussion is a temporary loss of normal mental function. It’s usually associated with a blow or impact to the head. Concussions are very common and they’re the least serious type of brain injury. However, they can still cause significant distress and time off work.    

No matter the type of head injury, our California brain injury attorneys are here for you. Call our brain injury law firm now for help.

STATISTICS

According to the CDC, there were more than 223,000 TBIs in 2019. And worryingly, in 2021, 190 Americans died every day from a TBI. Deaths from fall-related TBIs are increasing, and sports-induced TBIs are also very common.

Car accidents are a leading cause of TBIs, making up 14.3% of all TBI cases. Over 40% of TBI cases are a result of falls, which disproportionately affect the elderly and children under 14. 

Examples we’ve dealt with have included: 

What may have started as a leisurely drive up the coast ended with a grandmother lying in a hospital bed, surrounded by worried loved ones. 

After a stunt went wrong, a 16-year-old cheerleader was left with recurring migraines and short-term memory loss. 

A person can become a victim of TBI in an instant  

and should never be left to deal with the aftermath alone. 

That’s where the May Firm steps in to protect head injury victims — ensuring they have the resources they need to recover. 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF TBI

Costs associated with TBIs exceed $76 billion annually. Victims who seek medical care for TBI, regardless of severity, can expect to receive a series of hefty medical bills — possibly for the rest of their lives. Extended hospitalization for moderate to severe cases will only increase the total expenses associated with your accident.

Health insurance does not always provide adequate coverage. In addition to paying for an initial trip to the emergency room, victims of a TBI may find themselves on the hook for tests, prescription medication, long-term care, and follow-up medical visits. A $50 copay for an emergency room visit can snowball into tens of thousands of dollars of medical debt very quickly.

Beyond medical bills, head injuries can mean that a victim is unable to return to work. Many victims have to find new work that accommodates their cognitive limitations. Even if you fully recover to your previous normal, the recovery period will mean that your employer will find someone else to fill your position. Sadly, too many head injury victims in California find themselves in a new reality that involves lost or seriously reduced income, expensive medical bills, and regular trips to specialists for testing and treatment.
