Brain Injury


Brain injuries can be extremely traumatic and life-changing. Damage to the brain can result in the loss of some or even all mental functions, and it can impact a person’s ability to think, reason, or control his or her body.

Because of the complexities involved in understanding brain injuries and the laws surrounding them, anyone whose injury is the result of the negligence of another should reach out to a Glendale brain injury attorney at Binder Law Group, PLC.

How Brain Injuries Occur

Brain damage and brain injuries can occur due to a number of causes, including:

  • A vehicle accident
  • A poor birthing experience
  • Jaundice (newborns)
  • A blow to the head
  • An accident involving toxic substances
  • A mismanaged medical procedure
  • A slip and fall accident

The Leading Signs of a Brain Injury in Adults

Whenever you suspect that you or someone you know may have suffered a brain injury, it is crucial to seek prompt medical attention. This can lessen the likelihood of suffering permanent and possibly irreparable damage.

Some common signs of brain injury include:

  • Loss of consciousness (this can be anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes)
  • Being in a dazed, disoriented, or confused state
  • Suffering from headaches
  • Suffering from nausea or vomiting
  • Feeling more drowsy or fatigued than usual
  • Having difficulties sleeping
  • Feeling dizzy or losing balance frequently
  • No longer engaging in the activities he or she enjoyed prior to the accident

Individuals who have suffered a severe traumatic brain injury may have seizures, notable dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes, weakness or numbness in their extremities, or complete loss of coordination.

Damages Awarded in Brain Injury Cases

Your Glendale brain injury lawyer will analyze your case and determine which of the following damages you may be able to receive if you choose to pursue a claim:

  • Medical bills and monitoring: This includes initial emergency care, life-support services, and monitoring to detect any effects of future brain damage which may become apparent over time
  • Pain and suffering: You can receive compensation for both short and long-term impairments which have an impact on how much you enjoy life (i.e., incontinence, chronic headaches, or paralysis)
  • Lost wages: Negligent parties can be held responsible for the wages you lost as a result of having to take time off from work.
  • Lifestyle changes: This includes all activities you have had to give up because of your brain injury, including hiking in the woods, playing with your children, going to the gym, and so on
  • Lifecare: Should you or a loved one require home care and other non-medical needs (i.e., cooking, driving, cleaning), the negligent party could be held financially responsible for those costs
  • Future damages: Unfortunately, individuals with brain damage often have issues that will come up in the future.
  • Punitive damages: You may be entitled to punitive damages if the person who caused your brain injury was reckless, malicious, or intended to harm you in their actions

Proving injuries and damages in a brain injury case can not only be challenging, but it can be expensive, especially if you do not know where to turn for further assistance.
