Los Angeles Brain injury Attorney

Brain Injury Attorney Los Angeles

Doctors and medical professionals are still not fully aware of all the ways the brain functions. After sustaining a head injury, even one that seems minor at the outset, consequences can be lifelong. In the United States, 2.6 million people suffer brain injuries each year. Most of these injuries are not severe. The human skull is designed to protect the brain from trauma, and most of the time it does its job. However, when a severe brain injury occurs, the consequences tend to be directly linked to the quality of medical care the victim receives.

Medical care for a brain injury can be incredibly costly. When you or your loved one sustain a brain injury in Los Angeles, you don’t want to be thinking about the cost of medical care. You want to be thinking about options for the fastest and best recovery. A Los Angeles brain injury attorney can help you get the financial compensation you need if you or a loved one sustained a brain injury through the negligent actions of another.

Common Causes and Symptoms of Brain Injuries

One of the most common ways people receive traumatic blows to the head is during a vehicle accident. Car, motorcycle, and truck accidents can all cause severe brain traumas. Simple slips or falls can also cause severe injuries. Even a small blow to the head can cause a brain injury.

If an accident looks minor and you look and feel fine directly afterwards, this is not a guarantee your brain is unharmed. In most cases, however, someone who sustains a brain damage causing blow to the head will experience some symptoms. Short term memory loss, difficulty following instructions, disorientation, and a loss of the ability to speak are all common indicators a brain injury has been sustained. It is important to get medical help immediately to head off severe consequences.

Brain Damage Effects

Consequences of brain damage can be systemic and far-reaching. Inability to balance, decreased strength, poor coordination, seizures, paralysis, sleep disorders, photosensitivity, tremors, fatigue, and persistent headaches are all possible results of a brain injury. These are only the physical symptoms.

Brain damage can often cause behavioral and cognitive problems as well. Lasting memory loss, inability to make decisions, poor attention span, and poor concentration can all come with a brain injury in varying degrees of severity. Many people don’t know a brain injury can also result in extreme emotional disturbances. Depression, irritability, aggression, and a reduced tolerance for stress are all common following a brain injury.

The cognitive, behavioral, and physical consequences of a blow to the head can mean a person is disabled for life. A brain injury isn’t an event that happens once and then ends; it is a life long condition characterized by decline over time.

Brain Damage Treatment

Treatment for brain injuries is a quickly evolving area of medicine. A doctor must first diagnose the severity of the injury, typically, using medical imaging technology such as MRI and CT scans. Through these scans, a doctor can make sure blood and oxygen are properly flowing to the brain. If the brain is swollen, a doctor must take immediate action to relieve the pressure, or risk further damage.

Following immediate treatment, it’s common to need long-term rehabilitation. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychotherapy, and speech therapy may all be necessary.

The life changing nature of an injury to the brain makes it imperative you seek legal recourse. Inability to return to work following a brain injury creates even more financial stress on top of high medical bills. If you or a loved one sustained a brain injury in Los Angeles through the actions or negligence of another, contact the experienced team at Grey Law today.
