The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimates that
each year almost one-and-a- half million Americans will suffer a traumatic
brain injury accident. A brain injury accident is an event that damages
the brain through blunt force impact or by penetration.
Our Irvine personal injury attorneys will fight for a settlement you deserve and will be there to help you through this tough time. We handle head and brain injuries in Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside and San Bernardino.
Severity of Brain Injuries
Fortunately, most victims of brain injury accidents suffer minor injuries.
However, the brain is a complex system, and even minor injuries can have
long-lasting effects. A simple concussion can leave the victim feeling
off-kilter for days after the accident.
Typical long-term effects of a mild brain injury may include headaches
and pain. Victims may suffer from sleep disturbances, which further hamper
their ability to lead a normal life. Other common problems include memory
problems and vision or hearing problems. These difficulties are likely
to occur for weeks or even months after an accident.
Returning to routine, daily activities after a mild brain injury accident
may take only a few days. Other victims may be unable to return to work
for many weeks or even months. The Centers for Disease Control have estimated
that over 5 million Americans currently need long-term care or lifelong
help because of the debilitating effects of brain injury accidents.
Living with a Brain Injury
One in six people who experience a brain injury accident will be hospitalized
as a result of the accident. For these victims, life will never be the
same. Language disorders, thinking disorders, and emotional disturbances
are common in traumatic brain injury accidents. A traumatic brain injury
can also increase the likelihood of suffering from neurological disorders
such as Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s.
The changes in quality of life are not limited to the victim of a traumatic
brain injury. The emotional drain of caring for an injured spouse or family
member can destroy a marriage, damage a career, or have other lasting
effects. Loss of companionship and comfort can trigger bouts of depression
as loved ones struggle through their daily lives without the friendship
and solace of trusted partner.
