San Francisco Bay Area Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Bay Area | Oakland | San Rafael | San Jose CA
In an injury caused by an auto accident, truck accident or dangerous property condition on private or public property, a direct blow to the head or a severe jolt that causes the brain to hit the skull can cause traumatic brain injury (TBI). Sometimes hard to diagnose, TBI requires knowledgeable medical diagnosis and care. A successful TBI insurance claim takes the understanding and experience of a traumatic brain injury lawyer.
San Francisco Closed Head Injury Attorney in Bay Area California
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the major causes of traumatic brain injury are falls, traffic accidents, hits from a moving force (as in a pedestrian accident or transit accident), sports accidents and assaults involving firearms or blasts.
At our traumatic brain injury law firm, we know that TBI can be difficult to diagnose, especially when the injury is not evident in an MRI or a CT scan. When it is clear that an accident or assault victim is suffering from TBI, neuropsychological testing can be used.
Our Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys have experience handling traumatic injury cases. We know how to present effective claims to insurance companies and juries. A traumatic brain injury can cause both short-term and life-long problems:
- Loss of intellect (inability to concentrate, make decisions)
- Sensory loss (blurred vision, loss of smell or taste)
- Memory loss (short term, long term)
- Chronic headaches, neck pain
- Motor deficiencies
- Psychological damage
Recent Example of How We Have Helped a Brain Injury Client
We represented a 12-year-old Milpitas girl against the city of Milpitas and a general contractor for constructing a mid-block signalized pedestrian crossing but failing to warn pedestrians that the signal lights weren’t yet functional and to not yet use the crossing. Our client was struck by a van while crossing mid-block and suffered a traumatic brain injury. In deposition, a city employee working on the project admitted that she knew before the accident that the non-functioning crossing would be a problem but that she did nothing to correct it.
