San Rafael Brain Injury Lawyer

Brain injuries are some of the most serious injuries a person could sustain, and they are also common. Unlike other injuries, such as broken bones, the impacts of a brain injury can affect accident victims for the rest of their lives. Sometimes, accident victims require long-term care and they are often left unable to work for the rest of their lives. In many cases, accident victims never have the same quality of life that they did before the accident. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, it is important to speak to a San Rafael brain injury lawyer who can help you claim maximum damages.

What is a Brain Injury?

Medically speaking, a brain injury is any damage to the brain that causes a disruption in the normal functioning of the brain. Open brain injuries result in the skull or scalp being broken, fractured, or penetrated. Usually, this is the result of an object puncturing the skull and creating more damages as it moves further into the brain. A broken skull is an example of an open brain injury. Closed brain injuries, on the other hand, do not penetrate the skull or scalp but are typically caused by a blunt force trauma to the head. Concussions are an example of closed brain injuries.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are often caused by the negligence of another person. Any time a person acts negligently, or carelessly, they can cause an accident that results in many injuries, including those to the brain. The most common types of accidents that cause brain injuries include:

  • Auto accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Defective products
  • Dog bites
  • Airplane accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Train accidents

No matter how a brain injury was caused, it is imperative to speak to a brain injury attorney San Rafael. While you may be able to file a claim for compensation, a lawyer will understand how to conduct an investigation and help you through the claim process.

The Challenges of Filing a Brain Injury Lawsuit

Brain injuries greatly impair how a person functions. As such, after an accident, they do not always have the capacity to file a claim. When this is the case, a loved one can often file a claim on behalf of the injured individual. Unfortunately, this is just one challenge that brain injury lawsuits present.

Victims of brain injuries often do not have the capacity to describe the event that caused their injury, or testify as to how the injuries have impacted their lives. This also makes it more difficult to recover the damages the accident victim deserves.

Brain injury cases present these challenges, and many others. A brain injury attorney in San Rafael can help you overcome them and will ensure the rights of you and your family are always upheld.
