If you or a family member is suffering a traumatic brain injury due to an accident, you understand the heartbreaking emotional and financial toll the entire experience can have on the entire family. Recovery often takes a lifetime not only for the injured person, but for their loved ones as well. Brain injuries can cause a wide variety of crippling symptoms, such as paralysis, coma, seizures, personality changes, vision and hearing loss, loss of taste or smell, and cognitive or learning deficits.
Typically, a brain injury is obvious at the point of impact, or soon after. However, in some cases, the symptoms do not fully manifest until later when the injury escalates into a worsened condition. The brain is the catalyst for many functions for the body, making brain injuries that much more devastating.
Symptoms of a brain injury can include:
Cognitive or Mental Symptoms
Due to the understanding that many brain injuries take months or even years to become fully apparent, California has established a standard limit of 2 years to file civil claims against a negligent party. This means that if your brain injury gets worse over time, you may still be able to file a legal claim and collect damages. This statute limitation 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.
