Treadmills and Traumatic Brain Injuries
Treadmills and Traumatic Brain Injuries
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Brain Injury Lawyer. Studies conducted in the past few years have established that those who suffer repeated concussions – even if each concussion might be considered “minor” – are at an increased risk for developing permanent brain complications and conditions. This is not only bad news for participants in contact sports such as boxing, football, and hockey who can suffer repeated blows to the head, but it is also troubling news for those whose jobs might put them at risk for suffering a blow to the head (such as the military and the construction industry).
Traumatic Brain Injuries and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
New research has shed light onto the long-term effects of concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and the results are not encouraging. Those who suffer traumatic brain injuries and concussions can experience both short- and long-term symptoms and impairment. In fact, nearly all individuals who suffer a severe traumatic brain injury and a significant portion of those who suffer moderate TBIs will have long-term consequences, disability, or impairment as a result of the TBI. These consequences can include a condition known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

When you have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in California, after your health and long-term prognosis there is likely one other question on your mind: how will you be able to pay for all the medical treatment and ongoing care you are going to need? Below we will discuss recovering damages by filing TBI lawsuit.
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.
As a Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Attorney, and Sacramento Brain Injury Lawyer, I have represented many people over the years who have suffered horrible spine injuries. Injures to the spinal cord can be devastating both to those who have suffered the trauma, as well as their loved ones.
Next Generation Wheelchairs Helps People with Spinal Cord Injuries
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer. The human brain is a complex component of the human body. Even today, doctors and scientists have more questions than answers concerning how the brain functions when it is healthy and when it is injured. Given this lack of understanding amongst members of the medical and scientific community, it should be no surprise that individuals who lack a medical or scientific background also do not fully grasp the complexities of the brain. This lack of understanding and information about the brain and how it is impacted by injuries has led to the creation and circulation of numerous myths regarding traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
These myths are not harmless: a TBI patient or his or her family members who hold to these myths may mistakenly accept settlements or compensation for their injuries that are far less than what they could obtain had they been properly informed. It is always advisable that you and/or your family speak with a Davis TBI attorney as soon as possible after a TBI injury to learn about your legal rights and how best to protect them.
Although it is unclear where or how many of these myths began, they have been repeated numerous times and spread across the country. It is important to separate myth from fact when it comes to TBI injuries: only then can you make an informed decision about whether to proceed with a TBI injury lawsuit or attempt to resolve your injury dispute through an alternative means. In addition, believing a myth regarding TBIs can lead you to forego necessary medical treatment and fail to properly protect your legal interests. Continue reading ›
Assessment of such cases requires attorneys and intake staff to understand the basic aspects of the medicine behind such injuries, the sympotomolgy that often accompanies these injuries, as well as to recognize how to develop the damages in the case. One key aspect in evaluation of a PCS case is the understanding that the potential client may not be able to aid in recognizing or developing your understanding of the injury the he or she has sustained. As a result of their injuries, PCS clients are generally unaware that they have sustained a closed head injury nor do they appreciate the impact of the injury upon their lives. In many cases the consequences of such an injury are quite subtle and difficult to detect in casual conversation.
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.
Tinnitus is a common symptom from a traumatic brain injury following an auto or motorcycle accident. I have represented clients over the years who have suffered hearing loss or damage resulting from a head injury. Often times, a deployed airbag can cause an inner ear injury.
Tinnitus is best defined as any sensation of a sound that does not arise from a source external to the person who experiences the sound. Although tinnitus is most often perceived as “a ringing in the ears,” a variety of other sounds, such as buzzing, humming, whistling, clicking, or roaring, may be heard.
