Traumatic Brain Injuries: Causes and Effects
A traumatic brain injury results from physical trauma to the brain, typically caused by sudden and severe incidents that necessitate immediate medical attention. Collisions, jolts, and impactful blows to the head or body can lead to TBIs. Distinguishing itself from acquired brain injuries (ABIs), which stem from pre-existing conditions, illnesses, or similar factors, TBIs are a direct consequence of head trauma.
Slip and fall accidents, numbering in the hundreds of thousands annually, top the list as the primary cause of TBIs. Traffic collisions, with so many incidents each year, also contribute significantly. Other vehicular accidents, falls involving objects, violent crimes like assault and battery, all pose potential risks for TBIs.
If your TBI resulted from someone else’s negligence, we stand ready to help you secure the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries to Watch For
Not all traumatic brain injuries exhibit visible signs, underscoring the importance of seeking immediate medical attention if there’s even a remote possibility of injury.
Physical symptoms may include persistent headaches, slurred speech, changes in vision, fluid leakage from ears or nose, dizziness, and more. Additionally, non-physical signs such as unusual behavior, agitation, confusion, and difficulty concentrating may signal a TBI.
If you believe there’s even the slightest chance that you suffered a TBI, receive medical attention.
Valuing Traumatic Brain Injury Compensation in California
Compensation for a TBI in California can be obtained through settlements or verdicts, with the majority of cases settling out of court. While it’s challenging to pinpoint an average settlement, recent California brain injury verdicts reach, on average, more than a million dollars, which is over the national average.
Economic damages cover medical expenses, therapy, lost wages, and property damage, while non-economic damages encompass pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium among many others.
