Vast Understanding Of Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
While many people may think of head injury and traumatic brain injury (TBI) as the same thing, it is not quite true. A TBI occurs when an external force causes trauma to the brain, whereas a head injury may encompass damage to other parts of the head such as the skull.
At the Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, APC, we recognize the serious nature and potential long-term effects of even minor TBI. Our Hayward, California-based law firm represents people suffering from TBI throughout the Bay Area.
Give us a call today to discuss your specific questions in a confidential, no-cost consultation.
Recognize The Warning Signs
There are two types of TBI, closed and penetrating, and depending on the force of the impact, can be rated as mild, moderate or severe. Whether you were in a serious car accident, injured in a contact sport or hit your head after slipping and falling, warning signs may include:
- Mood changes such as irritability or anxiety
- Frequent headaches or migraines
- Memory loss and other impaired cognitive functions
- Sleep troubles
Because the effects of a brain injury can be permanent or long-lasting, it is important you work with attorneys who know how to evaluate the severity of your injuries. This can affect the amount of compensation that you seek against any negligent parties such as drivers or property owners. We will consult with the right medical and vocational experts to determine a fair value for your claim, and we will pursue every avenue to help you recover the compensation you need.
