Types of Brain Injury Claims Our Studio City Personal Injury Attorneys Handle
The brain injury attorneys in our Studio City office have represented clients in all types of brain injury claims. 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.
Our brain injury lawyers also represent victims suffering from:
- Closed head injuries;
- Open head injuries;
- Brain hemorrhages;
- Anoxic/hypoxic brain injuries; and
- Diffuse brain injuries.
When to Seek Treatment for Your Brain Injury
The particular danger of a TBI is that many symptoms may not present until days, weeks, or even months after your accident. These symptoms can be serious and even life-threatening. Common TBI symptoms include:
- Persistent headaches
- Loss of consciousness
- Confusion and disorientation
- Nausea or vomiting
- Blurred vision
- Ear ringing
- Mood swings
- Disrupted sleep patterns
The severity of your symptoms will depend on the seriousness of the trauma you sustained in the accident. Some symptoms may not manifest for days or even weeks, so any symptoms – no matter how minor – warrant immediate medical attention. For the sake of your health, you should never put off seeing a doctor when you’ve sustained head trauma.
How A Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
If you have been injured, contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your financial recovery options. A brain injury attorney will:
- Work with medical professionals to evaluate the extent and severity of your injuries and to place a monetary value on your claim;
- Contact investigators and other professionals to establish the cause of the accident and to determine who should be held liable;
- Gather and evaluate evidence to present to an insurance company and, when necessary, a judge or jury;
- Correspond with insurance companies on your behalf to negotiate a settlement; and
- When needed, file a lawsuit against the at-fault party to seek a judgment or jury verdict in your favor.
