Walnut Creek Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

A brain injury, in any form, will impact every part of your life. You or your loved one will face a lifetime of physical, emotional, and financial struggles. A traumatic brain injury will make it incredibly difficult to maintain the same quality of life you had before the accident that caused the injury. If you or someone you love has been hurt, a Walnut Creek traumatic brain injury lawyer will help you fight for your future and help you recover the full damages you deserve.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Any negligent act can cause a traumatic brain injury. However, there are some that are more common than others, and they are as follows:

  • Car accidents
  • Being hit by falling objects
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Physical assault
  • Explosions and blasts
  • Medical malpractice
  • Sports injuries

The above accidents cause a number of very serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Concussions are often the first type of traumatic brain injury a person thinks of. While concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury, and they can be quite serious, they are certainly not the only kind. Some other types of brain injuries are as follows:

  • Skull fractures
  • Contusions
  • Diffuse axonal injury
  • Hematomas
  • Lesions
  • Hemorrhage

Any of these injuries will have a serious impact on accident victims. They are painful, require long recovery times, and are expensive to treat.

What are the Symptoms of a TBI?

Brain injuries do not always present symptoms right away. Sometimes, an accident victim may notice symptoms but not associate them with their accident. It is crucial that any time someone is in an accident, they seek medical attention so a doctor can spot the signs of a TBI. Accident victims should also always watch for the symptoms so they can detect a TBI as soon as possible. The most common symptoms of a TBI are as follows:

  • A loss of consciousness, even for a few moments
  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Concentration issues
  • Headaches, especially when they come on suddenly
  • Balance issues
  • Drowsiness
  • Mood swings
  • Blurry vision
  • Speech issues

It is important to detect the symptoms of a TBI quickly. It is only once the injury has been identified that they can hold the liable party accountable for paying the maximum damages they deserve. A traumatic brain injury lawyer in Walnut Creek can help injured individuals through the process so they can focus on their recovery.
