Brain injuries are among the most complex cases handled by our injury lawyers. A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when the brain experiences a sudden physical impact. Depending upon the degree of damage, medical screening and tests may or may not be able to detect a brain injury immediately after one is incurred. Therefore, deficiencies in brain function may not become apparent until the victim attempts to undertake complex tasks. Common symptoms of a brain injury include difficulty focusing, fatigue, forgetfulness, headaches, difficulties learning, changes in personality, impaired judgment, and restlessness. Our San Diego brain injury attorneys understand the challenges associated with these types of cases, and have successfully litigated many brain injury cases in the past.
A brain injury can affect motor functions, thought, memory, speech, behavior and creative thinking, which in turn affects every aspect of a person’s professional and personal life. Because of the far-reaching repercussions of a brain injury, it not only has devastating effects on the victim but also on the victim’s loved ones. The period of time following a brain injury is filled with worry, stress and confusion as family and friends deal with their own emotions as well as doctors, insurance companies, and finances. Having experienced brain injury attorneys on your side will not only put you at ease and facilitate the process of recovery, but also help to obtain the compensation which you are justly entitled.
