If you or a loved one has suffered a brain in California, it is important to understand your legal options and seek the help of an experienced Los Angeles traumatic brain injury lawyer at Babaians Law Firm.

Brain Injuries and How Serious They Are

Brain injury can be the reason of several factors, with accidents and malpractice being considered as leading causes. Your brain injury can be caused by the negligence of another driver or the health provider failing to uphold their duty of care.

In accidents, it is important to check and identify any of the following symptoms, as they may indicate the possibility of severe brain injury and require immediate medical attention:

In general, brain injuries can be closed head injuries or open head injuries:

  • Closed Head Injuries: When the brain moves violently within the skull, brain swelling can result. When a child or adult is shaken violently, deceleration occurs, and it may result in a closed brain injury. When a brain injury is the result of a chemical or solvent, lead poisoning or carbon monoxide poisoning, the neurons in the brain are damaged. These are also considered closed head injuries, as is hypoxia, or a lack of oxygen to the brain.
  • Open Head Injuries: While the brain is enclosed within the hard bones of the skull, in the event of violent contact with a hard object it can be severely damaged. When there is a wound on the head, whether from being struck with an object, a gunshot wound, or an automobile or sports injury, which leaves an obvious wound, an open head injury has occurred.

Common Cause of Brain Injuries

As previously mentioned, brain injuries can occur due to accidents or even malpractice.

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: About a fifth of all brain injuries are the result of an automobile accident, however this number includes motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians who are struck by an automobile as well.
  • Falls: Slip and fall accidents account for about 35 percent of all brain injuries, with children and the elderly disproportionately the victims of such falls. Falls from bed, downstairs, in the bathtub or shower, or, in the case of children, falls suffered while playing, make up the majority of these brain injuries from falls.
  • Assaults and other violent incidents: are responsible for 10-15 percent of brain injuries, particularly from child abuse or domestic violence.
  • Sports Injuries: The rest of brain injuries are sustained because of sports injuries, construction injuries, or in military combat.
  • Medical Malpractice: In the case of medical malpractice, a brain injury can occur any time deviations occur in the accepted standards of medical practice. Most commonly, a birth injury in which the baby is deprived of oxygen, is responsible for brain injuries, although the improper use of anesthesia or a mistake made during surgery can also lead to a brain injury.
