SACRAMENTO BRAIN AND HEAD INJURY ATTORNEY
A rapid, sudden change in the movement of the head or neck can result in the brain impacting the inner surface of the skull. Such an impact can cause someone to suffer a brain injury. If someone suffers a brain injury due to another person or corporation's negligence or wrongful conduct, the victim and the victim’s family may be entitled to compensation under California laws. Brain injury cases often arise from auto accidents, truck accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, on-the-job accidents, bad pharmaceuticals, toxic chemicals, and explosions, among many other potential causes. The effects of a brain injury can be crippling and permanent.
The brain is a three-pound mass of gray matter enclosed in the skull. It interprets sensory impulses, coordinates and controls bodily functioning, and is the center of emotion and thought. The brain has three main sections: the cerebral hemispheres, cerebellum, and brain stem. In addition, there are left and right cerebral hemispheres. They are divided into sections called lobes. The left cerebral hemisphere controls the right side of the body and is responsible for speech. The right cerebral hemisphere controls the left side of the body and is responsible for creative thinking.
It’s estimated that 8 million people sustain brain injuries yearly in the United States. At least 2 million of those injured will be permanently impaired.
After a brain injury, things that once were easy and familiar become strange and difficult. Much mental effort is usually required to do something that requires little or no action before the brain injury. As a result, work, school, and personal relationships suffer. The injured party often becomes less efficient at their job and jeopardizes their livelihood. Often they become unpredictable, unreliable, and sometimes violent. When the victim of brain injury is a child, they can develop behavioral problems at home and school. Often they regress to an earlier developmental state. As you can imagine, a brain injury can affect the entire family.
