Head Injury from Vehicle Accident?

Riverside County Head Injury Lawyers Offer Free Consultations

Due to their complex nature, head injury cases can be difficult and require an experienced personal injury lawyer. Regrettably, head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI) or mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBI), are particularly common in automobile accidents. California’s busy streets lead to accidents involving heavy commercial trucks every day. These collisions hit motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians the hardest. However, any accident victim is at risk of suffering a TBI. As a result, it is absolutely essential that you seek prompt medical attention following any vehicle collision.

At no cost, our Murrieta head injury lawyers can let you know if you have a case. We can identify any party who may be responsible for your temporary or permanent injuries. Insurance adjusters will try to downplay your injuries — California injury lawyer Steve Gnau is skilled at challenging findings and developing creative solutions. We will fight vigorously to ensure that you receive full compensation for your injuries.

What Are the Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Unlike brain injuries caused by medical error or lack of oxygen, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a result of a direct blow to the head that damages brain cells. If you have been involved in a motorcycle, truck, bicycle or pedestrian accident, then you may have a significant brain injury.

We can help identify if you or a loved one suffer from one of the following forms of TBI or other head injuries:

  • Concussion: Symptoms of a serious concussion may be revealed weeks or months after your injury. Dizziness and blurred vision may occur immediately after your accident or at a later date. Utilizing a team of experts, our firm can help identify how serious your concussion may be.
  • Loss of consciousness: If you are fainting or becoming lightheaded after your accident, then you may have a head injury. Other symptoms include confusion and memory difficulty.
  • Brain damage: If something feels off and you are experiencing cognitive problems, headaches or emotional changes, then you may have suffered a brain injury.
  • Vestibular injury: Nausea and problems with equilibrium point to a vestibular injury. These injuries damage your inner ear and can move to the brain. Regrettably, these injuries are frequently misdiagnosed.
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder: Also known as TMJ, this injury involves a bone hinge that connects your jaw to your skull.
  • Eye injuries and disfigurement: Any injury to the head that causes disfigurement may lead to a brain injury. Eye injuries and other cranial disfigurements may tell a story of more internal damage.

The effects of TBI are often treatable, but your best chance at recovery requires prompt and decisive medical attention. Our Riverside County head injury lawyer understands that this potentially means mounting medical bills. It can also include expensive long-term rehabilitation or treatment as well as lost time from work and other activities.
