Los Angeles County Brain Injury Lawyer
A brain injury is a heartbreaking experience for all involved. These devastating injuries often lead to emotional and financial burdens on the entire family. Recovery often takes a lifetime not only for the injured victim, but for their loved ones as well. Injuries to the brain can cause a wide range of life-altering afflictions, such as coma, paralysis, seizures, personality changes, loss of hearing, taste, vision or smell, and cognitive or learning deficits.
Symptoms Of A Brain Injury
Many brain injuries are apparant immediately, but some symptoms do not appear until later when the injury manifests into a worsened condition. The brain is the catalyst for many functions for the body, making brain injuries that much more traumatic.
Symptoms of a brain injury can include:
- Loss of consciousness, sometimes for just a few seconds or a few minutes
- No loss of consciousness, but a feeling of being dazed, confused or disoriented
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Difficulty sleeping
- Sleeping more than usual
- Loss of balance due to dizziness
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Blurry Vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Bad taste in the mouth
- Changes in the ability to smell
Cognitive or Mental Symptoms
- Memory or concentration problems
- Mood changes or mood swings
- Feelings of anxiety and/or depression
Personal Injury Claims In Los Angeles County, California
California law has set a statute of limitations of 2 years to file civil claims against a negligent party. This allows the necessary time for symptoms to fully manifest. This time limit begins at the time of awareness of the injury, so it is important to seek a medical evaluation as soon as possible following an accident or injury.
