Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can occur in a variety of different ways, but the end result is usually the same: a lifetime of suffering, medical bills and permanent challenges. Particularly tragic is when a brain injury is inflicted upon an innocent person due to the negligence or intent of another. When situations like this occur, and you or someone you love has suffered a TBI remember that you have rights. Your life has been changed forever, and if someone else is responsible for your situation you need to consult a traumatic brain injury lawyer immediately. Every second you hesitate your chance for justice and compensation slips further away.
What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?
A brain injury is any harm that hurts the soft tissue of the brain. Although encased in sturdy skull bones, the brain is a very fragile organ indeed. Even a simple concussion or whiplash from a car accident can cause lifelong mental and physical difficulties. Part of the tragedy of TBI is that they are particularly difficult to initially recognize, and even more complicated to diagnose the injury without extensive and expensive medical examinations. Symptoms of TBI include:
- Slurred speech
- Difficulty concentrating
- Tingling extremities
- Behavioral problems/changes
These symptoms are indications of a TBI and require immediate medical attention. San Diego brain injury attorney Bryan R. Snyder can help put you in touch with medical professionals that understand the long-term consequences of a TBI, and who will help begin the healing process.
