A traumatic brain injury takes a startling emotional and financial toll on the whole family. Recovery can take a lifetime and affects the not only the injured person, but for their loved ones as well. Injuries to the brain can cause a wide variety of debilitating symptoms, such as seizures, paralysis, coma, personality changes, vision/hearing loss, loss of smell/taste, and cognitive or learning deficits.
Some brain injuries show up quite obviously at the point of impact, but in many cases, the symptoms do not fully appear until later when the injury manifests into a exaggerated condition. The brain is the center for many functions for the body, making brain injuries that much more debilitating.
Symptoms of a brain injury can include:
Cognitive or Mental Symptoms
Since many brain injuries can take months or even years to fully manifest, California law allows for up to 2 years to file civil claims against a negligent party. This means that if your brain injury worsens at a later date, you may still have the opportunity to file a legal claim and collect damages. This 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.
