Approximately two hundred thousand individuals are hospitalized annually with a brain injury. Approximately one-quarter of this number die and almost 50% will be left with a disability. Regardless of movie plots and TV shows, most brain injuries do not result in a coma or vegetative state. A brain injury may cause frequent or chronic headaches, dizziness, memory difficulties, impaired coordination or balance, personality changes, insomnia, blurred vision, loss of cognitive ability and other serious symptoms. Most brain injuries result from an external blow to the head but can also result from a powerful shaking motion which can cause the brain to move inside the skull which can occur in a car accident, truck accident, boat accident, bike accident or pedestrian accident. If you have suffered a brain injury it is important to have the assistance of a Los Angeles personal injury attorney to determine what compensation might be owed to you.
