As a Personal Injury Law Firm in the Sacramento area, we know that many people suffer from brain or head injuries as a result of their accident. We also know how exhausting and overwhelming it can be trying to understand all the new terms and implications that come with a diagnosis. We think it’s important to share some information in order to raise awareness.
This being so, I decided to give you a brief overview of brain/head injuries in my next couple of blogs. I hope that some of this information comes in handy and can help you see a clearer picture of what may have occurred during and as a result of your injury.
How it occurs…
A brain/head injury occurs from the brain compressing, twisting, or distorting inside the skull. This can happen when the skull hits an object, such as a windshield or the ground. Often bone, muscle and vertebrae tissue is also damaged in a severe head injury.
If the impact is strong enough, the accident can cause the skull to break and directly hurt the brain. This is often called a “traumatic brain injury”.
Lastly, a brain/head injury can be caused even if there is no direct impact. In cases where there is rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head, the brain may be moved around in the skull, causing nerves to break and damage to the brain tissue. This type of injury is often found in severe whiplash.
Always seek medical help if you or someone you know were a victim of brain/head injury. I hope this gives you a clearer overview of what it is and how it happens. If you have been injured and have suffered a brain or head injury, please contact our law offices for legal advice. We are here to help you through it.
Don’t Let Your Statute of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date the incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.
