Overview of Brain Injuries
There are many different types of brain injuries, and you may feel overwhelmed when trying to research the injury you or your loved one has sustained. In this overview, we provide a brief look at the brains functions, the types of injuries that can occur, and dealing with the aftermath of an accident. Hopefully, the information here will help you narrow down your search when researching the specific brain injury that has affected your life.
The Brain & Its Functions
Some physicians have difficulty diagnosing injuries that seem to have no logical cause. It is possible that these disabilities are the result of a brain injury which no one has realized yet as the victim's head feels fine. We provide a look at the various functions of the brain to help you identify what might be damaged after experiencing head trauma. It is imperative that you seek immediate medical attention if you think you have a brain injury. The information here is intended to help you offer suggestions to your physician, not diagnose yourself.
Brain Injury Litigation
Brain injury lawsuits are incredibly complex. To give you a roadmap to what a typical brain injury case involves, our Rancho Santa Fe brain injury attorneys have provided an overview of the usual proceedings. Every case is different depending on the severity of injuries and circumstances of an accident. Your case will not proceed exactly as the information listed here, but you will have an idea of what steps can be taken to prepare for a lawsuit.
Causes & Effects of Brain Injuries
There are several ways the brain can be injured and several disabilities that can result from the accidents-some of which are more subtle than others. This page provides information on what kind of accidents and symptoms you should be on the lookout for if you are nervous that you or someone you love has experienced a brain injury. Again, we are not medical professionals, and you should always consult with a doctor if you even suspect someone has a brain injury. The reference material here is to assist in building a brain injury lawsuit, not determining if you have an injury.
Diagnosing & Treating a Brain Injury
Sometimes doctors have a difficult time finding a brain injury. Here we outline some of the tools and tests a physician can perform in order to diagnose and treat a brain injury. Some of these treatments can be expensive, and you should keep a record of all of your tests and the resulting medical bills so as to help an attorney determine the full recovery you are entitled to from a brain injury lawsuit.
