in Los Angeles

The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani:
Serious Injury Attorneys Serving Orange County & Los Angeles County

If you or a loved one has suffered a head or brain injury due to an accident, the effects can be devastating, if not life-threatening. The physical, emotional, and financial costs can be staggering. You need a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles to help get maximum compensation following an automobilebicyclepedestrian, slip and fall, or workplace accident that caused your head injury.

What Is a Head Injury?

A head injury is any type of trauma involving the scalp, skull, or brain. It might cause just a mild bruise or bump. Other effects range from concussions and wounds to skull fractures. If the skull isn’t broken, the head injury is said to be closed. An open head injury is one in which the scalp and skull, or even the brain, have been penetrated.

No matter how minor or serious a head injury looks, it should always be treated with urgency. Always seek medical treatment for a blow to the head. The extent of the injury is often not known without medical testing. Profuse bleeding can occur even with minor injuries. On the other hand, a major injury may not be accompanied by much bleeding or even visible surface damage.

The most common causes of head injuries include shaking, more often seen in infants and children, or blows to the head, typical of falls and motor vehicle accidents.

What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

With a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, a blow to the head has caused a disruption in normal brain function. A TBI is lethal in the most serious cases but the severity level can vary. More than a million such injuries are reported annually and, since there are so many kinds of trauma, you need our Los Angeles TBI attorney experienced representing clients affected by brain injuries.

Sometimes, the effects of a TBI are temporary. A mild injury may cause only a temporary disruption in brain cell activity. In more serious cases, an object or piece of skull may penetrate brain tissue, cause tissue tears, or lead to severe bruising or internal bleeding.

The onset of symptoms may be delayed, especially in children. Children are more susceptible to traumatic brain injuries, as their skulls are not fully formed or hardened, so any blow to the head can have more serious consequences

 

Jacob Emrani Is Here to Help

Taking on the insurance companies after an accident is hard work. They are experienced in finding ways to deny claims and minimizing payouts. The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani understands how to gather and present evidence, be persistent, and negotiate with powerful insurance firms. Our specialty is solely on injury cases. You can therefore depend on a skilled brain injury attorney to put all their experience and resources into fighting your case and winning maximum compensation for your injuries and hardship.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

A force that breaks one or more bones of the skull is more than enough to cause damage to soft brain tissue. Bone fragments can puncture the brain and cause internal damage. The skull is strong and difficult to break, however it’s not efficient at absorbing impacts, which leaves the brain vulnerable during an accident.

An epidural hematoma is bleeding between the outer membrane surrounding the brain and the skull. Intense pressure can cause severe brain damage. Subdural hematomas occur inside this outer membrane, and usually involve underlying veins, while intracerebral hematomas occur inside the brain. A cerebral hemorrhage is often fatal.

Widespread physical damage to brain cells can leave a person permanently disabled or in a coma. One of the most dangerous injuries, a diffuse axonal injury may not be accompanied by bleeding, so signs of injury may not be immediately evident. The damage disrupts brain cell function and can cause additional swelling and fluid buildup.

Head Injury Symptoms

The brain is often analogized to a computer. It sends messages responsible for every bodily function, thought, and task we perform. A brain injury can cause a range of physical, behavioral, emotional, and social impairments as well as consequences on mental health. Your serious injury attorney in Los Angeles or Orange County can assess the immediate and lasting effects of your injury to help build your case.

Short term symptoms can include:

Long term symptoms may include persistent concentration and memory problems, mood swings, and depression and anxiety. Disruptions to fine motor skills may require use of wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, and other mobility aids. If muscle function is affected, a person may have trouble swallowing, eating, speaking, eliminating waste, or have a variety of other impairments. A person may also have lasting communication difficulties; speaking, hearing, and writing can be affected. Changes in behavior are common following a TBI, as is emotional trauma due to the injury and associated life changes.

What Can Cause Head & Traumatic Brain Injuries?

TBI & Head Injury Medical Costs

Brain and head injuries often require extensive care. The National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke estimated the lifetime cost of treatment for a TBI can exceed $4 million. That study was conducted in 1989, so you can imagine the cost-potential today.

Cost factors include extensive surgery for severe brain injuries. Surgical intervention must be performed by a well-trained specialist. Rehabilitation alone can cost well over $1,000 per day. Our Los Angeles head injury attorneys often look at these long-term expenses associated with relearning how to walk or performing other daily tasks. Prescription medication costs are a major consideration too, as the price of ongoing treatment is a burden on already financially strained clients.

To top things off, a TBI can cause lasting impairments that leave a client unable to work, earn a living, or support themselves or their family. Paying medical costs, let alone rent, utilities, or for food, can be a staggering obstacle.
