Ontario Brain Injury Lawyer
A traumatic injury to the brain takes a devastating emotional and financial toll on all involved. Generally, recovery can last a lifetime not only for the victim, 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, hearing loss, vision loss, loss of taste, loss of smell, and cognitive or learning deficits.
Symptoms Of A Brain Injury
Oftentimes, brain injury effects appear shortly after the incident, but in some cases, the symptoms do not appear until later when the injury manifests into a worsened condition. The brain is the stimulant for many functions for the body, making brain injuries that much more devastating.
Symptoms of a brain injury can include:
- Loss of consciousness for a few seconds to a few minutes
- No loss of consciousness, but a state of being dazed, confused or disoriented
- Migraine or headache
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Changes in sleeping patterns
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Light or sound sensitivity
- 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
- Feeling depressed or anxious
Personal Injury Claims In Ontario, California
Since it has been proven that brain injuries can take months or even years to fully appear, 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 important to obtain a medical evaluation as soon as possible following an accident or injury.
