It is easy understand the devastating emotional and financial impact a traumatic brain injury can have on the injured person as well as the entire family. It is not unusual for recovery to take a lifetime due to the a wide variety of debilitating symptoms, such as seizures, paralysis, coma, personality changes, hearing loss, vision loss, loss of taste, loss of smell, and cognitive or learning deficits.
Some brain injuries are apparent at the point of impact, but in many cases, the symptoms do not appear until later when the injury manifests into a worsened condition. The brain is the center of many functions for the body, making brain injuries that much more debilitating.
Common symptoms of a brain injury can include:
Cognitive or Mental Symptoms
California has established a standard timetable of 2 years to file civil claims against a negligent party in brain injury cases since many symptoms take months or even years to fully manifest. This means that if your brain injury worsens as time goes on, you may still have the chance to file a legal claim and collect damages. This statute limitation time period begins at the time of awareness of the injury, so it is important to obtain a medical evaluation as soon as possible following an accident or injury.
