Has Your Loved One Suffered From A Traumatic Brain Injury?
Brain injuries affect different people in different ways. Many times the symptoms are subtle at first and escape diagnosis, especially if the person has broken bones, lacerations or other acute injuries. As time goes on, it becomes apparent that the person is not the same — and may never fully recover.
The Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser excels at demonstrating the impact of major injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI). Our attorneys work closely with victims, family members, medical specialists and other professionals to present a compelling case to the insurance company. We aim to secure long-term compensation without dragging the case out for years.
Our Palm Springs, California law firm offers a free consultation, serving victims of auto collisions and other personal injury accidents in the Coachella Valley and throughout Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial counties.
What Are The Symptoms Of Traumatic Brain Injury?
Brain damage occurs from direct trauma to the head or when the brain is shaken violently inside the skull, as in the whiplash effect of a car accident. Early diagnosis is crucial, because the long-term damage can be compounded if the person does not get proper treatment and rest.
Depending on the area of the brain and the degree of injury, the symptoms vary from person to person:
- Headaches, nausea and ringing in the ears
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Inability to concentrate or fogginess
- Impaired vision
- Motor impairment or speech problems
- Mood swings or outbursts
- Personality change
- Profound cognitive deficits
The Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser helps families connect with neurologists, neuropsychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, life care planners and other professionals who can diagnose the extent of injury and determine the future needs. Our legal team works with these experts to paint a vivid picture of an injury that is not always outwardly apparent. The testimony of family members, coupled with medical records, day-in-the-life videos and other evidence, helps us present a case that the insurance company cannot ignore.
