San Francisco Brain Injury Lawyer
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Also known as TBI's, traumatic brain injuries are potentially devastating
injuries that occur as a result of a serious impact to the head, such as in
boating accidents and any other activity or accident where
blunt force trauma to the head or restricted oxygen flow to the brain occurs. These types of injuries can even occur without specific impact, such
as in cases of fast acceleration or deceleration which cause the brain
to press too hard against the head, causing bruising or bleeding that
may not be evident at once. Medical attention should be sought immediately
after any accident.

What are the Symptoms of Brain Damage?
Identifying the degree of traumatic brain injuries can be very challenging,
even for brain injury specialists.
People who have suffered a serious TBI may exhibit memory loss, a dampened
ability for problem solving, difficulty controlling temper and many other symptoms, in mild cases. More severe cases will include total loss of cognitive
function, and recovery is uncertain.
Traumatic brain injuries carry many consequences, and those who suffer
from this type of injury will incur substantial medical bills for diagnosis,
surgery and other treatments, medication, therapy and rehabilitation.
Further, many TBI victims may no longer be able to make a living or function
in life as they had previously, if at all, and families can suffer severe
financial hardship when a loved one has been permanently injured.
