New Research Shows Promise for Brain Injury Patients

I’m Ed Smith, a Santa Barbara Brain Injury Lawyer. Those who have experience dealing with a brain injury understand the devastating consequences that can result.

Brain Bleeding Symptoms

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento personal injury lawyer. Many people use cars for the work commute, the drive to school, and for pleasure transportation. Unfortunately, there is always a risk that a car accident can take place and it does not take a severe collision to cause a traumatic brain injury. Even a so-called “fender bender” can cause people to smack their heads on either the window, the headrest, or the dashboard. If this impact is great enough, it can cause bleeding in the brain. A head or brain injury is a medical emergency and can cause severe, irreversible symptoms that can even include death.

Traumatic Brain Injury Deaths

Statistics for Death from Traumatic Brain Injuries According to Age

Traumatic Brain Injury Deaths

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton auto accident attorney. Death from traumatic brain injury (TBIs) can happen in an instant, changing life for the victim and his or her loved ones forever. In many cases, the victim dies. But even if he or she survives, the symptoms from the resulting injury can range from mild to severe; disabilities can include physical, emotional, personality, mental and other changes. Some of these disabilities can include paralysis, permanent brain damage and other complications, rendering the victim unable to work or care for his or her needs. Even in less serious cases, adjusting to life with a TBI takes time both for the victim and the family members. If the TBI occurred due to someone else’s negligence or intentional actions, a qualified brain injury lawyer might be able to pursue financial compensation on the victim’s behalf.

Identifying Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Identifying Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Brain Injury Lawyer. Because many of the symptoms of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) closely mirror the symptoms of other illnesses or conditions. Knowing whether you have suffered a TBI is not always an easy determination to make. Not all TBIs result in a period of unconsciousness and forgetfulness: in fact, a mild TBI may not be accompanied by any loss of consciousness at all. Nevertheless, even a mild TBI can result in temporary and/or permanent difficulties and limitations.
