Traumatic Brain Injury in Agoura Hills

Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyers

When a brain injury has occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence, victims may be eligible to file a compensation claim that will cover both short-term as well as long-term losses. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury because of another’s negligence, call a Los Angeles brain injury lawyer, and discuss filing a claim for compensation.

Causes of Brain Injuries

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most common causes of traumatic brain injury in the United States are:

Consequences of Brain Injury

Brain injuries can range from concussions, leading to neuropsychiatric problems including post-concussion syndrome and emotional disorders, to various degrees of cognitive impairment and other severe neurological injuries that can leave a person in a permanently vegetative state. If you or a loved one has suffered any kind of blow to the head, it is important to seek emergency medical attention immediately. Even a concussion must be referred to an emergency medical department or doctor.

Get Treatment Right Away

Medical treatment is essential because it is important to diagnose if there is bleeding in the brain, or other signs of possible exacerbation of the injury such as swelling. If treatment is sought in time, there is a better chance that long-term injuries can be avoided, as sadly there is no complete cure for a brain injury. It is also important to get plenty of rest – both physical and mental – after a head injury so that the brain has the best opportunity to heal. Consequently, medical expenses and lost wages are common economic losses following head injuries.

Who Is at Risk?

Young children and the elderly generally have worse outcomes from traumas to the head as compared with young adults. In a moderate brain injury, individuals may suffer memory loss, impaired cognitive function, mental impairment, and impaired communication. In a severe brain injury, the person may be unresponsive to any kind of stimulation. All types of brain injuries, including concussions, have the potential to lead to emotional changes such as increased anxiety and depression.
