Traumatic Brain Injuries Are Common in Accidents
One of the most common injuries associated with car accidents, other vehicle accidents, and slip and falls, are TBIs.
In some cases, you may experience a concussion along with other injuries. A concussion is the mildest form of a TBI. On the Glasgow Coma Scale, a concussion is a score of 13 to 15 points. The GCS measures head injuries based on motor response (1-6 points), verbal response (1-5 points), and eye-opening response (1-4 points).
Symptoms of a concussion may lessen over a few weeks or months. However, you can also experience lingering and long-lasting effects, particularly if you are diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome.
A moderate TBI has a score between 9 and 12 on the GCS. With a moderate TBI, you may experience additional symptoms and more severe symptoms for a longer duration. It may take you months to fully recover and be able to return to all of your normal activities.
A severe TBI is a score between 3 and 8 on the GCS. Severe TBIs are often associated with permanent cognitive or emotional changes and physical limitations. After suffering a severe TBI, you or a loved one may never be able to do everything you used to in regard to work, at home, or your hobbies.
Severe TBIs also can lead to comas, vegetative states, and death. If you lost a loved one due to a severe brain injury, call our San Jose brain injury attorneys right away. We are highly experienced in handling California’s wrongful death claims.
Brain Injury Compensation
If someone else is responsible for you or a relative suffering a brain injury, you should speak with a personal injury or wrongful death lawyer as soon as you can. While we cannot guarantee a specific outcome to your claim, we can advise you on the validity, strength, and value of your claim.
When there is evidence that another individual or business’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional misconduct caused an accident that resulted in your injuries or loved one’s death, then you have the right to demand compensation.
In most circumstances, we pursue a settlement through an insurance claim. That being said, that does not mean we advise against filing a lawsuit. Often, filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit is important to obtain additional evidence, show the insurer you are serious about your claim, and to give you the opportunity to take the at-fault party to trial, if necessary.
Through an insurance settlement or trial, our brain injury lawyers in San Jose will fight for you to recover compensation for your:
- Past and future medical expenses,
- Lost wages and employment benefits;
- Other injury-related expenses;
- Property damage;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Reduced earning potential;
- Reduced quality of life; and
- Loss of consortium.
