Expert Torrance Brain Injury Attorneys

The human brain has fascinated scientists for centuries. Its complicated structure and functions have been studied since the founding of technology designed to understand it. However, science is still far from completely comprehending the scope of each of the cells that make up the human brain.

But this is what we have discovered so far — an injury can change the neural activity, physical integrity, metabolic activity, or functional capacity of nerve cells in the brain. This is known as a traumatic brain injury, resulting from different types of accidents such as:

  • Falls
  • Assaults
  • Car accidents
  • Sports injuries/recreational injuries
  • Gunshot wound
  • Work injuries
  • Child abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Military actions

If you or a loved one has sustained head injuries after an accident because of someone else’s negligence, contact Farahi Law Firm for legal representation. Our experienced brain injury attorneys will give you legal advice for your personal injury claim. Call us today at (310) 544-8347.

A Public Health Problem

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), traumatic brain injury cases increased by 53% from 2006 to 2014, with an average of 155 registered deaths daily. Also, in 2014, 2.87 million people went to the emergency departments for a traumatic brain injury, and of that number, 837,000 were children.

The traumatic brain injury cases from that year led to the death of 56,800 people, and 2,259 of them were children. The problem with this kind of injury is that it has grown rapidly. In fact, the National Conference of State Legislatures has considered it as a serious problem of public health. 

Moreover, there are more than 2.5 million visits to the emergency department for traumatic brain injury every year, of which 282,000 people are hospitalized and 50,000 are declared dead.

TBI Symptoms

The CDC classifies the TBI symptoms into four categories:

Thinking/memory

  • Difficulty in thinking clearly
  • Feeling slow
  • Difficulty to concentrate
  • Difficulty in remembering new information

Physical

  • Headache
  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Light sensitivity
  • Lack of equilibrium
  • Tiredness
  • Lack of energy

Emotional

  • Irritability
  • Sadness
  • Be more sensitive
  • Nervousness
  • Anxiety 

Sleep

  • Sleep more than normal
  • Sleeping less than normal
  • Trouble to sleep

Even though these symptoms could appear immediately after the blow or accident, in some cases, they could be delayed. This is reason enough to pay attention to the behavior of the person who suffered the injury and pay attention to their reaction to their surroundings.

Nevertheless, if you have one of the symptoms mentioned below, you must go immediately to the emergency department and seek the help of Torrance brain injury attorneys. Watch out for:

  • Headaches that increase
  • Weakness and lack of coordination 
  • Nausea and constant vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Chronic weakness
  • Having one pupil larger than the other
  • Seizures 
  • You have trouble recognizing people or places
  • You feel more confused or agitated
  • You have an unusual behavior
  • Loss of consciousness

Children could have any of the symptoms above, aside from incessant crying and loss of appetite.

Remember that if you or a loved one are brain injury victims, you are not alone. At Farahi Law Firm, we are here to help you.

Types of Brain Injuries

The American Association of Brain Injuries says that the injuries could be classified as mild, moderate, and severe. The most frequent are:

  • Diffuse Axonal Injury. It could be caused by shaking or a strong rotation to the head, like the shaken baby syndrome or a motor vehicle accident.
  • Contusion. It is a bruise or internal bleeding in the brain provoked by a strong blow to the head.
  • Coup-Contrecoup Injury. A coup injury occurs in the brain, directly under the point of impact. Whereas a contrecoup injury occurs on the opposite side of the point of impact. 
  • Second Impact Syndrome. (Also known as recurrent traumatic brain injury) This happens when a person sustains a second traumatic brain injury before the symptoms of the first traumatic brain injury heals. The second injury could occur days or weeks after the first. It does not always lead to loss of consciousness. It is more probable that the second impact causes brain swelling and general damage.
  • Penetration Injury. Occurs from the impact of a bullet, a knife, or another sharpened object that penetrates the skin and skull. 
  • Abusive Traumatic Brain Injury. (ex. shaken baby syndrome) The movement, similar to whiplash, causes the brain to be injured. 
  • Open Head injury. Injury in which the dura mater (external layer of the meninges) breaks. It can be caused by high-velocity projectiles or another object at lower velocity, like knives or a bone fragment from a skull fracture. 
  • Closed Head Injury. It is caused by an external force without any penetration of the skull. When the brain swells, it has no room to expand; so it can cause an increase in intracranial pressure. 

Keep in mind that these are only some examples of traumatic brain injuries and that only a qualified medical expert can determine which type of brain injury you have, its severity, and the best treatment. Never take any drug without a prescription from your medical provider, and don’t self-diagnose. It is unsafe.

Don’t forget that after a severe brain injury you are entitled to financial compensation. At Farahi Law Firm, we have expert traumatic head injury attorneys that are available 24/7 to answer your questions. We will fight for your rights and obtain the justice you deserve. 

Physical And Emotional Effects Of A TBI

The article, Neurobehavioral sequelae of traumatic brain injury: evaluation and management, by Thomas W. MacAllister, states that the majority of survivors of this kind of bodily injury (moderate and severe) sustained serious side effects that include the cognitive deficit, personality change, and in some cases, psychiatric illness.

The author says that cognitive damages are the most frequent, especially in the following areas: 

  • independent life,
  • social readaptation,
  • family life, and
  • vocational activities

It also leads to the incapacity to solve problems, control impulses, pay attention, learn, process information, and speak. 

Family members of those who have suffered from this catastrophic injury affirm that the patients experience emotional and behavioral alterations that could go from hypersensitivity to physical and verbal aggression.

Associated Costs In The Treatment Of A TBI

The treatment of traumatic brain injury is extremely expensive, which could be a great financial burden to the victim and the victim’s family. Of course, one has to consider the medical expenses and patient rehabilitation, so the severity of the injury only increases the amount that one should pay.

Some basic expenses that need to be covered are:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Surgeries
  • Drugs
  • Psychological therapy

Furthermore, many accident victims find it difficult to get back to their lifestyle or their jobs, and become dependent on their families to take care of them. They can never return to their previous lives due to the injury they received from the accident at the hands of a negligent party.

Don’t let a traumatic brain injury ruin your life. 

Let us help you so that the person responsible for the injury can pay for all these expenses. The Torrance brain injury attorneys at Farahi Law Firm have years of legal experience that will help you obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
