What Are Common Symptoms of Brain Injuries? 

Brain injuries can happen while strolling around Sherman Oaks Galleria, driving down Ventura Boulevard, or while engaging in other activities popular among residents. Even seemingly minor bumps or blows to the head can disrupt neural pathways in the brain, causing potentially life-threatening complications. Symptoms of brain injuries to be alert for include:   

  • Loss of consciousness; 
  • Feeling dizzy, lightheaded, and confused; 
  • Having difficulty walking or maintaining your balance; 
  • Problems speaking, communicating thoughts, or understanding what is being said; 
  • Vision disturbances, such as seeing spots or double vision; 
  • Feeling nauseous and vomiting; 
  • Having problems remembering details of the accident; 
  • Suffering severe headaches; Feeling excessively tired and having trouble staying awake.  

If you suspect a brain injury, seek medical care right away. Not doing so could jeopardize your health and your rights in filing a brain injury claim.  

How Do I File A Claim For Brain Injuries In Sherman Oaks?    

Brain injuries can cause lasting physical, emotional, and cognitive impairments. Victims may have marked personality changes, suffer from bouts of depression or extreme anxiety, and have trouble working or performing even simple household tasks. Once a brain injury happens, the National Institutes Of Health (NIH) warns that there is an increased risk that any future bumps or blows to the head could be fatal.

When you or someone you love suffers a brain injury due to the reckless actions of others, you have the right to file a claim.
