San Rafael Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury, it will affect every aspect of your life. Traumatic brain injuries have many impacts on accident victims and their families, and often result in physical, emotional, and financial challenges. Traumatic brain injuries can also make it difficult to enjoy the same quality of life a person had before the accident. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury and it was the result of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, it is important to speak to a San Rafael traumatic brain injury lawyer.

What Causes a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Any act of negligence can result in a traumatic brain injury. Still, there are some causes that are more common than others. These include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Dog bites
  • Defective products
  • Bus accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Airplane accidents
  • Electrocution accidents
  • Sexual assault and other acts of violence
  • Medical malpractice

When a person is involved in any of the above incidents, it can result in a number of serious injuries. Accident victims who have suffered head trauma need to reach out to a San Rafael traumatic brain injury attorney right away.

Common Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The term ‘traumatic brain injury’ is really an umbrella term used to describe a number of injuries. The most common types of brain injuries are as follows:

  • Concussions
  • Contusions
  • Coup and contra coupe injuries
  • Skull fractures
  • Hematomas
  • Diffuse axonal injuries
  • Lesions
  • Hemorrhages

All of the above injuries are very serious and require long recovery times. They are also very costly to treat, which is why accident victims should always speak to a traumatic brain injury lawyer in San Rafael who can help them recover compensation for their losses.

Seeking Medical Attention After a Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most serious a person could suffer and so, it is important to know what to do. Immediately following the accident, it is important to not move anyone that has suffered a serious injury. This could make the injury even worse. Instead, call for medical help as soon as possible. When paramedics arrive at the scene, they will know how to move the accident victim safely so they can receive further treatment.

Once initial treatment has been provided and the accident victim has been moved from the scene, it is important to follow any instructions provided by the nurses and doctors. For example, a doctor may advise that someone with a concussion does not move a lot and that they remain in a dark room without looking at screens or books. While this is very difficult, it is essential to follow the instructions so the injured individual recovers quickly and their injury does not become worse.
