Sacramento Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
What is a traumatic brain injury?
A severe impact, blow or sudden jerk of the head can change the way your brain normally works. It should be taken seriously and treated immediately.
There are two types of severe traumatic brain Injury (TBI):
- A Closed TBI is caused by severe shaking or rotation of the brain inside the skull, leading to tears in the brain structure. This injury can result in temporary or permanent brain damage, seizure, coma or death. Direct blows lead to concussion and contusion, or bleeding bruises to the brain. A blow can be strong enough to cause the brain to slam into the opposite side of the skull, causing an additional contusion.
- A Penetrating TBI is caused by a foreign object entering the skull, as in the discharge of a firearm or from being struck by a knife or other sharp object.
The top three causes of traumatic brain injury are motor vehicle accidents, firearms and falls. When severe traumatic brain damage is due to the reckless or careless actions of another, you deserve help from a Sacramento attorney.
