When an Accident in San Diego Results in a Traumatic Brain Injury (Part B)

If you suspect that you have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from an accident in San Diego, contact a San Diego trial lawyer. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries if the accident that caused your TBI was caused by someone else's negligence.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury after an Accident in San Diego

The symptoms typically scale with the seriousness of the injury. For instance, headaches may accompany mild TBI, but more serious TBIs could entail headaches that get worse or won't go away. Other symptoms typical of TBI consist of: 

  • confusion;
  • dizziness;
  • lightheadedness;
  • blurred vision;
  • ringing in the ears;
  • lethargy or fatigue;
  • insomnia, inability to be awakened from sleep, or other sleep complications;
  • nausea or vomiting;
  • difficulty concentrating, remembering, or thinking clearly; and
  • behavior or mood changes

Treatment of TBI after an Accident in San Diego

The treatment for brain injuries is largely rehabilitative since so little can be done to reverse the actual brain damage of the trauma. TBI should be treated immediately by medical professionals, who will try to stabilize the trauma injury.

After the initial concerns of ensuring oxygen flow to the brain and blood pressure are addressed, imaging tests such as X-rays and CT scans are used to determine the extent of the damage done in the accident.

Rehabilitative treatment typically consists of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech or language therapy, and psychological and psychiatric counseling.

It has been estimated that brain injuries have led to billions of dollars in U.S. medical costs and indirect costs, such as emotional pain or inability to work. In light of the high costs and serious repercussions, it's advisable that you reach out to a San Diego trial lawyer if you have suffered TBI from an accident in San Diego.
