Experienced Panorama Brain Injury Lawyers

The human brain is one of the most important and delicate organs in the body. Impact to the head could bring lifelong consequences, and symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, anxiety, and difficulty concentrating could affect their quality of life.

This kind of injury is known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and is the result of a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2019, an average of 166 people died each day from TBI-related deaths, which totaled 61,000 deaths in that year.

In the Traumatic Brain Injuries Report, the National Conference of State Legislature states that TBI is a serious public health problem, with:

  • 2.8 million new cases each year 
  • more than 2.5 million EDs visits 
  • 282,000 hospitalizations 

Those who survived could face effects that last a few days or the rest of their lives. Issues that not only affect them but also their families and communities. Therefore, if you or a loved one have suffered a TBI, you must seek legal advice because you are entitled to compensation. 

At Farahi Law Firm, our Panorama brain injury lawyers will happily answer all your questions. Call us at (818) 949-1881.

What are the Leading Causes of TBI?

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, TBI can be caused by:

  • Falls
  • Assaults
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Sports Injuries
  • Abusive Head Trauma (Shaken Baby Syndrome)
  • Gunshot Wounds
  • Workplace Injuries
  • Child Abuse
  • Domestic Violence
  • Military Actions (Blast Injury)

However, data from the CDC reveal that the leading causes of TBI are:

  • Falls accounted for almost half (48%) of all TBI-related emergency department visits. 
  • Being struck by an object was the second leading cause of TBI-related ED visits, accounting for about 17% of all TBI-related ED visits. 
  • Over 1 in 4 (28%) TBI-related ED visits where children 17 years of age or less  were caused by being struck by an object.
  • Falls and motor vehicle crashes were the first and second leading causes of all TBI-related hospitalizations (52% and 20%, respectively)
  • Intentional self-harm was the first leading cause of TBI-related deaths (33%) in 2014.

If you or a loved one suffered a head injury due to a negligent party, you are entitled to monetary compensation. Please contact Farahi Law Firm.

Symptoms of TBI

While most people recover well from symptoms experienced at the time of injury, older adults, young children, and teens may take time. Brain injury symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer. 

Symptoms usually fall into four categories:


  • Difficulty thinking clearly
  • Feeling slowed down
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty remembering new information


  • Headaches
  • Fuzzy or blurry vision
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Sensitivity to noise or light
  • Loss of balance
  • Feeling tired, having no energy


  • Irritability
  • Sadness
  • More emotional
  • Nervousness or anxiety


  • Sleeping more than usual
  • Sleeping less than usual
  • Trouble falling asleep

Brain injury victims could overlook the signs and symptoms they have; these changes are mostly noticed by family members and doctors. People may look fine even though they are acting or feeling differently.

When to Seek Immediate Medical Attention

In rare traumatic brain injury cases, a dangerous blood clot that crowds the brain against the skull; can develop. Guardians should take the victim to an emergency department right away if he/she is experiencing:

  • Constant headaches that worsen over time
  • Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • One pupil is larger than the other
  • Seizures
  • Inability to recognize faces or places
  • Evident confusion, restlessness, or agitation
  • Unusual behavior
  • Loss of consciousness

Danger Signs in Children

Take your child to the emergency department right away if they received a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body; or are exhibiting these symptoms:

  • Have any of the danger signs for adults listed above
  • Will not stop crying and are inconsolable
  • Will not eat or breast-feed

In general, the road to recovery may be slower among older adults, young children, and teens. Those who have had a TBI in the past are also at risk of having another one. Some people may also find that it takes longer to recover if they suffer another TBI.

The Painful Impact of TBI

The paper Neurobehavioral sequelae of traumatic brain injury: evaluation and management, by Thomas W. McAllister, affirms that the majority of survivors of a moderate and a severe brain injury have chronic neurobehavioral sequelae, including cognitive deficits, changes in personality, and increased rates of psychiatric illness. 

Initial and persistent cognitive deficits are the most common complaints after a TBI and the major hindrance to normalization in the areas of independent living, social re-adaptation, family life, and vocational endeavors.

Several cognitive domains are predictably impaired, including problem-solving, set-shifting, impulse control, self-monitoring, attention, short-term memory and learning, speed of information processing, and speech and language functions. 

Survivors and family/caregivers frequently describe alterations in emotional and behavioral regulation as “changes in personality.” This takes two different forms: exaggeration of pre-injury traits; or fundamental changes in response patterns. 

  • One problem area is that of impulsiveness. This may manifest in: 
    • verbal utterances, 
    • physical actions, 
    • snap decisions, 
    • and poor judgment 
  • A second problem is irritability. Survivors may be described as more irritable or more easily angered. Responses can range from verbal outbursts to dangerous, aggressive, and assaultive behavior. 
  • A third area is that of affective instability. Survivors and family/caregivers frequently describe exaggerated displays of emotional expression.

If your life has been affected due to a TBI, remember that as the injured party, you are entitled to financial compensation. An experienced brain injury lawyer at Farahi Law Firm is always available to advise you throughout the whole legal process.

Costs Associated with Traumatic Brain Injuries

Living with a traumatic brain injury can be extremely expensive. Victims might incur expenses for:

  • Medical bills
  • Medical treatment
  • Rehabilitation
  • Physical therapy
  • Multiple surgeries
  • Medication

Many TBI survivors often cannot return to the lives they had before the injury. Therefore, family members must come to terms with their new role as caregivers.

To avoid a huge debt, let your personal injury lawyer bring a case against the person at fault for your injury. The at-fault party must pay your medical expenses.

Having a Panorama City TBI Lawyer

Traumatic injuries can impact your life in minor ways or require lifelong treatment and rehabilitation. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) states that, even when it is difficult to determine the economic impact of a brain injury, the estimates of the total lifetime costs range from $147 billion for fatal TBI to $18 billion for non hospitalized TBI.

As you can see, these costs are extremely high. Many people will not be able to afford the treatments associated with brain injuries, even if they have excellent insurance. For this reason, you must have the best traumatic brain injury lawyers at your side.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do I have to file my TBI claim?

Like any other personal injury, you only have two years to file a claim for damages for a brain injury. This is why it is critical that you contact us as soon as possible after the injury occurs so that we can begin the process of recovering the compensation you deserve.

What elements are needed to prove negligence with a brain injury?

Legally, negligence is proved by illustrating four elements:

  • Duty. The defendant had a general legal duty to avoid actions or situations harmful to others.
  • Breach of duty. The duty of care was not exercised or fell below an acceptable standard.
  • Causation: The breach of duty is found to be the cause of the accident.
  • Damages: Injury and losses were suffered resulting from the breach of duty.

What is my TBI case worth?

Every case is different. We must consider the nature and extent of the injury, including future prognosis and the necessity of further treatment. It is also essential to take in mind who the claim is being made against and how much insurance coverage they have.

If I was partially at fault in the accident that caused my TBI, can I still file a claim?

California follows the rule of comparative negligence, which means that you may obtain compensation for your injury minus the percentage you are found to be at fault for the accident.

Do I have to pay for the evaluation of my case?

You won’t have to pay for anything! Our traumatic brain lawyers happily evaluate your case free of charge.  Also, we have a strict policy that you do not have to pay a fee until we win.
