Causes of brain injuries
A blow to the head can cause brain damage, often with no outward indication of injury. Closed-head injuries are common in such incidents as:
➣Motor vehicle accidents
➣Combat injuries sustained by military service members
Lack of oxygen to the brain can cause brain cells to die within a matter of moments. Cerebral hypoxia can occur because of drowning, anesthesia errors or birth injuries.
California helmet laws protect motorcyclists from head injuries
California statutes require all motorcyclists to wear a safety helmet while driving. This law saves lives. However, a defective helmet may do more harm than good. To protect your head from injury during a motorcycle crash, it is important that your helmet meets Department of Transportation (DOT) standards and fits your head properly.
Symptoms of brain damage
Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) do not always appear right away. Even though you may not notice your TBI for days or weeks afterward, getting immediate care can make a substantial difference in your recovery. Therefore, if you sustain a hard knock on your head, you should let a doctor assess your condition. Mild brain damage can cause a variety of symptoms, including:
➣Loss of memory
➣Nausea and vomiting
➣Sensitivity to light and sound
➣Lack of concentration
Recover for your family member’s severe brain damage
Catastrophic head injuries can result in a coma, vegetative state, minimally conscious state or locked-in syndrome requiring a lifetime of care. Our attorneys help you get the money you need to provide the best care you can for your loved one.
