What Defines a Traumatic Brain Injury in a California Car Accident?

Every year, tens of thousands of California residents are involved in car accidents. Some are fortunate enough to walk away without a scratch. Many are able to resume their normals lives once they have made a full recovery from their injuries. There are thousands of people, however, whose fortune is not nearly as good as everyone else’s.

Some traffic accident victims sustain injuries that are permanent, debilitating, render them unable to work, leave them beset on all sides by mounds of ever-increasing medical bills, and perhaps requiring some form of physical or emotional therapy or other support for the rest of their lives. These kinds of injuries are called catastrophic injuries. Essentially, what this means is that the car accident victim will not be able to continue on with the same quality of life that they enjoyed prior to the accident. The most frequently sustained catastrophic injury is a traumatic brain injury.

If you have been the victim of a car accident for which you were not liable and, as a result, suffered from any type of injury, then you need to contact a personal injury attorney at the Los Angeles Injury Group as soon as possible in order to ensure that your rights are protected and that you get full financial compensation for the injuries and any other damages that you have sustained.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Regrettably, traumatic brain injuries are one of the most frequently occurring forms of injuries that happen during major car accidents, largely because of the vast scope of symptoms that qualify. A slight concussion, for example, medically passes as a traumatic brain injury, just the same as more severe injuries that end in the loss of brain functions, permanent incapacity, or even death. Approximately 30% of the deaths that occur from traffic accidents involve some kind of traumatic injury to the brain.

These injuries most often occur when violent and sudden hits to the head take place. This will make the brain bounce around within the skull, causing irreparable damage the soft tissue. The utter force involved in auto accidents could also inflict damages like intracranial bleeding. Those who endure these injuries may also lose cognitive function, experience fractured sleeping patterns or even violent mood swings. It is also possible for these victims to lose their sight and/or their hearing.

The most intense examples of traumatic brain injury could render a person incapable of executing even their most essential self-care responsibilities without the assistance of an aide or time spent in physical therapy. These people also usually need daily support care from a home healthcare worker or another family member who now has to forego their own job and miss out on time with their family so that they can care for the basic needs of the victim.

Don’t add a lifetime of financial hardship to the list of things you have to deal with. Call the Los Angeles Injury Group.
