Types of Brain Injury Claims Our Perris Personal Injury Attorneys Handle

Brain injuries can generally be categorized as one of two primary types: traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) and acquired brain injury (“ABI”):

  • ABI describes any type of head injury that is not the result of a birth injury or a hereditary or degenerative condition. This may include stroke, tumors, infectious disease, or a lack of oxygen supply to the brain.
  • TBI is a specific type of ABI that results from external force or strain aimed at the brain or nervous system. Our attorneys are experienced in representing accident victims who have suffered from TBIs.

The brain injury attorneys in our Perris office have represented clients in all types of brain injury claims and represent victims suffering from: 

  • Closed head injuries;
  • Open head injuries;
  • Brain hemorrhages;
  • Hematomas;
  • Edema;
  • Anoxic/hypoxic brain injuries; and
  • Diffuse brain injuries.

If you work with us, we will investigate the cause of your brain injury and prepare for settlement negotiations based on the specific facts of your case, the nature of your injury, and the cause of the injury.

When to Seek Treatment for Your TBI

The danger of a traumatic brain injury is that many symptoms may not present until days, weeks, or even months later These symptoms can be serious and life-threatening.  Common TBI symptoms include:

  • Headaches

  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Blurred vision
  • Ear ringing
  • Mood swings
  • Depression

The severity of your symptoms will likely depend on the seriousness of the trauma you sustained in the accident. However, any symptoms – no matter how seemingly minor – warrant immediate medical attention, so be sure to see a doctor as soon as possible after your accident.
