Anaheim Brain Injury Attorneys

Brain Injury Attorneys -AnaheimCaring for a loved one with a brain injury can be emotionally, physically and financially challenging.

Brain injury patients exhibit changes in health and behavior. In serious injury cases, patients have to relearn everyday skills such as walking, talking, eating and bathing.

The cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation in traumatic brain injury cases can be exorbitant.

Victims whose injuries were caused as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing would be well advised to contact an experienced Anaheim brain injury lawyer who will better advise them about their legal rights and options.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (35.2 percent). That is followed by auto accidents (17.3 percent), struck by/against events (16.5 percent) and assaults (10 percent.)

Falls cause 50 percent of brain injuries among children aged 0 to 14 years and 61 percent of all brain injuries among adults aged 65 and older. Among all other age groups, auto accidents were the second leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. Also, about 18 percent of all brain injury-related emergency department visits involved children aged 0 to 4 years.

What to Do if you have Suffered a Brain Injury

If you have suffered an impact to the head, whether it was after a car accident, fall or assault, it is important that you get a medical examination right away. Even a concussion or some other type of internal injury may become catastrophic or fatal if ignored. Getting prompt medical attention also helps create a record and maximizes your chances of making a complete recovery.

Irreversible Brain Damage

According to experts, serious brain damage can occur even there are no visible indications of injury to the head or even signs on a brain scan. A traumatic brain injury can also result in changes to mental processing that are profound and permanent. A brain injury can slow down a person's thinking, dull their attention and leave their memories muddled and judgment impaired.

Rehabilitation and therapy can help victims cope with the changes, but it does not repair the damage. Brain damage, unfortunately, is permanent. Doctors compare it to losing a limb. Just as a limb does not grow back, brain damage cannot be repaired and is forever. The goal of rehabilitation is not to make the person who he or she was before the injury, but to teach the patient to cope with the person he or she has become after the brain injury.

Who is Liable for a Brain Injury?

Liability usually depends on the circumstances of how the brain injury occurred and who was involved. For example, if the brain injury occurred as the result of a car accident caused by a drunk driver, that driver can be held liable. If a defective product caused the injury, then the manufacturer of that faulty product can be held liable. If negligence of nursing home staff caused a patient's fall, then, the nursing home can be held liable.

Protecting Victims' Rights

Often, rehabilitation costs are not covered by health insurance. Victims face tremendous financial pressures, as do family members who have the responsibility of caring for them. Many victims and their families end up paying out of pocket for medications, medical devices and rehabilitation services.

If your brain injury was caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, you should not have to suffer financially.
