Injuries to the brain can be catastrophic.Living with a brain injury can be extremely challenging not only for victims, but also their family members. In addition to what these victims and families go through emotionally, they are also faced with significant financial burdens. Medical expenses, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation and other forms of therapy can add up very quickly and push families into debt.

A traumatic brain injury can become a catastrophic injury. What this means is that victims of such traumatic injuries are often left with lifelong disabilities that prevent them from going back to the lives they had prior to the injury. Most of them are not able to return to the jobs they had prior to the injury or are even unable to re-join the workforce. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, an experienced Orange County brain injury lawyer can help you better understand your legal rights and options.

Causes of Serious Head Injuries

They are many ways in which a brain injury can occur. Most brain injuries are caused by an impact to the head and the brain. Some head injuries or brain injuries can be critical or life threatening. Others are moderate or even minor. However, regardless of the severity of the injuries, victims should obtain prompt medical attention to prevent the situation from worsening. A minor or moderate head injury can take a turn for the worse without prompt treatment. There are several possible causes for brain injuries such as:

Motor vehicle accidents: About one-third of all brain injuries in the United States are caused by auto accidents. These include car accidents, bike crashes, motorcycle accidents, truck collisions, pedestrian accidents and bus crashes to mention a few. When motor vehicle accidents cause serious brain injuries, it is important to determine who was at fault and who should be held liable.

Falls: In the United States, falls are the leading cause of all traumatic brain injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Falls could occur in nursing homes, at work areas such as construction sites or as the result of a slip-trip-and-fall accident. Depending on the circumstances of the fall, the at-fault party can be held liable. For example, if a nursing home resident suffers a brain injury as the result of an employee's negligence, the nursing home can be held liable for the injuries. If a visitor to a shopping center slips and falls on liquid spilled on the floor that was not cleaned up in a timely manner, the property owner could be held liable for the victim's injuries.

Acts of Violence: An assault with a weapon such as a gun, knife or even a baseball bat can result in a traumatic brain injury. In such cases, in addition to criminal prosecution, the at-fault party can also be held civilly liable for their wrongdoing.

Sports-Related Injuries: Head injuries such as concussions are extremely common in contact sports. However, when a serious brain injury occurs because of someone's negligence, there may be a basis for a lawsuit. Assumption of risk is often a factor in such cases. This means that athletes assume a certain element of risk when they play sports. An experienced Orange County brain injury lawyer will be able to determine fault and liability in such complex cases.

Medical Negligence: There are cases when a doctor or medical staff's negligence can cause a brain injury. For example, if oxygen is cut off to the brain of an unborn child during labor or delivery, the child may suffer a brain injury or irreversible brain damage. In such cases, a doctor who failed to recognize symptoms of fetal distress could be held liable.
