As a Sacramento Brain Injury Attorney, as well as a Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Lawyer, I am frequently asked by both clients and non-clients alike about what to expect if asked to give a deposition.

You may, or may not be a Justin Bieber fan.  I personally like Jackie Greene and Mumbo Gumbo.  But you should definitely not be a fan of Justin Bieber’s deposition style!

Yuba City Power Restoration After Rainy Day Collision

PG&E has restored power for over 1,600 customers after Monday’s outage. The cause of this outage was linked to a broken power line after a vehicle collided with a pole. The driver of the vehicle was said to be traveling at an unsafe speed for rainy conditions.

depressed skull fracture complicationsMy law firm has represented many people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a vehicle or motorcycle accident.  As a Sacramento Brain Injury Attorney my office is experienced in helping represent individuals who have endured a head injury due to no fault of their own.  As a Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Attorney I have unfortunately seen many people suffer horrible head trauma, most notably, depressed skull fractures.

Most patients with a depressed fracture of the skull which has been properly treated recover rapidly and completely.  In the majority, brain damage is limited to the immediate vicinity of the fracture, and this precludes prolonged unconsciousness with its attendant hazards, unless there is in addition a blunt (acceleration) component to the injury.

bike sidewalkIs it legal to ride bikes on sidewalks in Sacramento?  Well, the answer is: it depends.  According to current California state law, cities and counties are able to regulate whether or not bicycles are allowed on sidewalks.  While it is legal to ride a bike on the sidewalk in some parts of the greater Sacramento area, in other areas it is prohibited.

Areas in which bicycle riding on sidewalks is uniformly prohibited are Folsom, Galt and the central business district of Davis.  Other areas have mixed rules.

Does the length of post-traumatic amnesia and/or a loss of consciousness predict long-term cognitive impairment? The two clinical terms are not necessarily ­synonymous.

Many auto and motorcycle accidents result in whiplash injuries.  Many also unfortunately involve a brain injury.  Perhaps not so coincidentally, there are many similarities between whiplash and brain injury.  Both includes many similar symptoms.

The biggest challenge with treating auto injuries is getting a proper diagnosis. Countless studies show that whiplash patients have objective, organic injuries; unfortunately; many of these injuries are difficult to pinpoint with conventional diagnostic imaging techniques, such as CT or MRI.
