Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney – Los Angeles
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur during any traumatic event, such as a car accident, a slip-and-fall, negligent surgery or drug reactions. In some cases physical activity like playing sports can result in serious brain injury. In other cases, the emotional and physical trauma from military service can lead to long-term TBI. The symptoms can vary greatly and can include anything from mild changes in mood or personality to paralysis or death.
It is often difficult to diagnose TBI from a closed head injury. A closed head injury occurs where the brain is knocked against the skull, without the skull actually cracking. A victim can suffer serious injuries from this impact. If you have suffered a TBI or you suspect that a loved one has been injured, our Oakland, California, brain injury attorneys can help you bring a claim.
