My 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.
