Did You Suffer a Traumatic Brain Injury in an Accident?
Even the most prepared of individuals can find themselves suffering from a traumatic brain injury after living through an accident. Smacking your head during a slip and fall in your favorite store or hitting your head on the steering wheel during a car accident can lead to TBI. You must understand the laws in your state and what compensation you can get after an injury of this type.
What is TBI?
More than two million people in the United States visited an emergency room because of TBI in 2010 alone. Some of the symptoms you may experience immediately after the injury include loss of consciousness, headache, vomiting, and loss of concentration or nausea. You may experience mood swings, have memory problems or even suffer from seizures later. Though you may have a mild concussion, it's important that you see a doctor to rule out TBI as soon as possible.
California Statute of Limitations
With a two year statute of limitations, California gives you up to two years after the injury to file a lawsuit. You must first get immediate attention and necessary treatment you need to recover. While you’re at it a lawyer can be your representative to ensure that you get just compensation. California lets injured parties seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages and emotional pain and suffering. Attorneys with experience in this matter can best help you get the legal side of this incident sorted out.
