Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney Serving San Francisco, California
Lafayette Head Trauma Lawyer Providing Experienced and Focused Representation to Those Suffering from TBI
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a penetrating or concussive head wound that causes damage to the brain and disrupts its normal function. TBIs occur when the head violently and suddenly hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue. At the Law Offices of Anthony A. Ferrigno, I am familiar with the medical and legal issues involved in TBIs and can provide significant benefits in the resolution of your case. I am dedicated to pursuing the maximum financial compensation for you and your family.
What Are the Symptoms and Consequences of a Brain Injury?
There are two basic types of brain injuries. In open head injuries, the skull is fractured. A closed head injury does not involve a skull fracture, but these injuries can be even more serious than open head injuries because the brain may swell, or blood clots may form under the skull.
Brain injuries can cause many complications even when the victim appears outwardly healthy. Symptoms of complications you should be alert to and take seriously after you have sustained a head injury include:
Confusion and difficulty remembering events
Lightheadedness and dizziness
Blurred vision or tired eyes
Numbness or weakness on one side of the body
Ringing in the ears
Bad taste in the mouth
After any impact to the head, it is important to seek medical attention. Even an injury with minor symptoms could potentially have serious consequences if left untreated.
Because these injuries can result in serious and long-lasting damage that affects your ability to perform everyday activities, it is important to retain an experienced Lafayette traumatic brain injury attorney to represent and protect your interests.
People who have sustained a TBI may struggle with disabilities including the following:
Speech and language deficits such as difficulty speaking, reading, or writing
Partial or total vision loss
Loss of the sense of touch, smell, or taste
Victims of TBIs often require a lifetime of care. An experienced attorney can help you pursue compensation for the costs of treatment, therapy, and home-care.
