When a blow or violent impact causes a person’s brain to move within the skull, a number of injuries can occur. For most victims, these injuries either kill them or cause lifelong debilitating injuries. Since the most dangerous stretch of highway in the country for fatal and serious auto accidents is right here in Riverside County, most of the brain injury cases we help clients with are auto accidents caused by negligent drivers. Drivers who speed, drive drunk, drive aggressively and choose to engage in other negligent habits can and should be held liable for damages. If you or a close family member has sustained a brain injury from an auto accident, fall at work, medical malpractice, assault or another type of negligence and you would like to speak with a Riverside brain injury lawyer, call us today at 888-848-5084.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than five million Americans struggle with some type of brain injury every day and another 1.7 million sustain a serious brain injury each year. These injuries claim 52,000 lives, result in 275,000 people being hospitalized and cause another 1.365 million to require treatment in an emergency room. The strange thing about brain injuries is that each one is unique, and being released without hospitalization is no guarantee that the victim won’t have serious problems in the following days, weeks and months. The structures and network of nerves within the brain are incredibly complex. When damaged, victims often have no idea of the effects until some time after the accident when they begin having problems with the following:
Making matters worse, brain injuries can greatly increase the chance of stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other serious medical conditions.
