Get Financial Assistance to Better Deal with the Repercussions of a Brain Injury
A person who has suffered a traumatic brain injury in California does not need anyone else to tell them how terrible the consequences can be. Every brain injury is unique, and the way it affects a person will depend on their health when they were injured, what part of their head suffered the injury, and other issues.
You cannot predict exactly how your brain injury will affect you in the future. You may find that what started out as minor symptoms have gotten much more significant, or you may find that what seemed insurmountable got better more quickly than you imagined. Regardless, if your brain injury was caused by another party acting recklessly or negligently then you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim.

Three of the Most Common Types of Brain Injuries
There are a number of different types of brain injuries and the challenge in recovering from them can vary from one injury to another. While some are more severe than others, any brain injury can have a life-long impact on the person who suffers it. Three of the most common types of brain injuries, all of which are most often diagnosed after car accidents, include:
- Concussions. Many people believe that concussions are minor, but the truth is that this supposedly “minor” brain injury can have a lifelong impact on a person’s life. A person recovering from a concussion can have headaches, an inability to concentrate, and numerous other issues.
- Diffuse axonal. This happens when a person is injured by strong rotational forces – which often happens in car accidents. A person who has suffered this type of brain injury may have damage to their nerves in the brain, which can result in a decline in all manners of cognitive function.
- Contusion. Put simply, this is just like a bruise on the brain. It can also lead to bleeding. The main concern with contusions is that they can cause swelling, which then require surgery to repair.
These are just three of the most common types of brain injures but there are examples both more and less severe than the ones listed.
