Definition of Traumatic Brain Injury 

TBI occurs when the brain suffers sudden trauma, which can happen as a result of a violent impact such as those common of an accident in San Diego. The brain is encased by the hard protective shell of the skull, and cushioned by spinal fluid. Sudden impacts or movements that force the brain to hit the wall of the skull, or trauma that pierces the brain tissue itself can cause tears or lesions in the delicate tissue. 

Traumatic brain injury can manifest in several different ways, but the most common symptoms can last months or even years, even those resulting from mild TBIs and concussions, which make up 75% of annual TBI's.

TBI has also been shown to cause epilepsy as well as increase the risk for Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and other brain disorders. Considering this, a TBI can be life altering in which case contacting a San Diego trial lawyer may be necessary. A trial lawyer has experience with cases like yours and can not only answer your questions about the process, but also fight for the compensation you may be entitled to when you suffer an injury because of another's failure to exercise due care.
