San Bernardino County Brain Injury Lawyer
Any injury to the brain elicits crushing emotional and financial toll on all involved. Typically, recovery can last a lifetime not only for the injured person, but for their family as well. Traumatic brain injuries can cause a wide variety of crippling symptoms, such as coma, paralysis, seizures, personality changes and cognitive or learning deficits. Many also experience a loss or change in their hearing, vision, taste and smell.
Symptoms Of A Brain Injury
Many brain injuries appear immediately following an accident. However, in some cases, the symptoms take weeks or months to fully manifest. 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 even for as little as a few seconds to a few minutes
- No loss of consciousness, but a state of being dazed, confused or disoriented
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Sleeping longer or more often than usual
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Sensitivity to light and/or sound
- Blurry Vision
- Ringing sensation 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 San Bernardino County, California
Since some symptoms of brain injury can take months or even years to appear, California law allows 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 chance 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.
