What is Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a brain injury where an external force causes the brain to malfunction. The amount of malfunction can range from mild to severe. Traumatic brain injuries can occur after a head injury, a violent jolt to the body or when an object penetrates the skull, such as a piece of metal or a fractured bone. In mild cases, you may only have temporary dysfunction, while in more severe cases, you can suffer from permanent damage that can lead to long-term complications and even death.
Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
Symptoms of traumatic brain injury may include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Confusion or disorientation
- Nausea and vomiting
- Fatigue and drowsiness
- Sleeping problems
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Ringing in the ear
Accident victims who suffer from TBI and complications that can arise from it will need significant monetary support to cover medical costs, property repair, and pain and suffering. The number one priority of those who suffer from a traumatic brain injury after a car accident is getting the medical treatment needed.
California Traumatic Injury Law
If you suffered a traumatic brain injury in a motorcycle accident or other accident, your injury could be the result of another person’s negligence. Negligence is defined as the failure to use reasonable care and can be applied when a driver fails to act in a way that an ordinary person would under similar circumstances. This can occur when a driver is operating a vehicle recklessly, violating traffic laws, or driving while distracted.
What Types of Compensation Can You Seek for a TBI?
If you sustained a TBI as a result of another person’s negligence, California law allows you to seek compensation for a variety of items including:
- Medical expenses – You can seek compensation for doctors visits both in and out of the hospital, hospital bills, and emergency room treatment
- Pain and suffering – This is sought to compensate you for the physical and emotional pain and suffering that may result from the accident
- Physical property damage – You can seek compensation for repair and partial replacement cost if your vehicle is damaged or totaled as a result of the accident
- Lost wages – If your injury has left you unable to work you could seek compensation for wages you lost as well as projected earnings you would have made if you had not sustained your injury
