Understanding head and brain injuries
Head, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries most often result from the following:
- Sports injuries
- Assaults and fights
A head injury may be as simple as a thump on the head, or it may involve a complex brain injury. The damage may be mild or severe, or may appear simple but become more dangerous over time.
A brain injury is caused by a sudden blow or jolt to the head that causes the brain to smash against the hard interior of the skull. The resulting damage might include:
- Torn nerve fibers
Recovery depends on access to expert rehabilitative care
The effects of traumatic brain injury can be widespread, disabling and life-changing. They may be:
- Behavioral and emotional
A brain injury can leave you needing to re-learn even basic skills. Recovery can take years and be physically, emotionally and financially exhausting. Unfortunately, insurance is often inadequate and insurance companies resist paying for lengthy rehabilitation. A personal injury claim may be the only way you can secure access to the services you need.
Santa Barbara brain injury attorney Robert Patterson works closely with you and your medical advisors to identify the potential long-term effects. We fight hard to win maximum compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional damages
- Punitive damages
