A traumatic brain injury inevitably causes a dramatic emotional and financial toll on the entire family. Recovery can take a lifetime not only for the injured person, but for all of their loved ones as well. Injuries to the brain can cause a numerous crippling symptoms, such as seizures, paralysis, coma, personality changes, hearing loss, vision loss, loss of taste, loss of smell, and cognitive or learning deficits.
Oftentimes, the consequences of a brain injury are quite obvious at the point of impact. However, in many cases, the symptoms do not fully appear until later when the injury manifests into a worsened condition. The brain is the center for many functions for the body, making brain injuries that much more devastating.
Symptoms of a brain injury can include:
Cognitive or Mental Symptoms
Taking into account that many brain injuries take months or even years to fully manifest, California has established a standard timetable of 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 statute limitation time period begins at the time of awareness of the injury, so it is crucial to obtain a medical evaluation as soon as possible following an accident or injury.
