Brain injuries can be hard to recover from. A traumatic brain injury can be one of the most serious injuries one can suffer from after an accident. The odds of developing this type of injury increases with the severity of the impact. Severe brain injuries occur when something pierces the skull and hits brain tissue, when the head is hit suddenly or forcefully, or when there is sudden trauma. If you’ve suffered from a brain injury, an experienced California personal injury lawyer from The Law Office of C. Ray Carlson can help you navigate the legal process and receive the compensation you deserve.
Common Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries can be either mild or severe. As such, the symptoms someone experiences will vary. Mild injuries are characterized by tired eyes, blurred vision, dizziness, headache, memory issues and short periods of unconsciousness. Meanwhile, severe traumatic brain injuries can result in convulsions, dilated pupils, repeated nausea or vomiting, seizures and an inability to wake when sleeping. No matter the cause of the accident, finding an experienced brain injury attorney ensures your rights are protected along the way.
