Brain injuries are among the most serious type a person can suffer, affecting patients even many years after the accident.

Traumatic brain injury can result from automobile crashes or in other cases where a person’s head hits an object with great force. The brain is the most delicate and sensitive part of the body, and even a slight blow can cause severe injury. Moreover, the brain has limited power to heal, and even if it does heal it may take a long time.

What Should You Do in Case of a Brain Injury?
In many instances, a traumatic brain injury is not diagnosed by a physician because patients fail to report issues such as short-term memory loss and personality changes. If you or a family member suffered a brain injury because of an accident, even if it occurred a long time ago, it is very important that you consult a doctor immediately. The next thing you should do is retain the legal counsel of a knowledgeable California brain injury attorney.
A Krasney Law attorney will ask you questions to find out how your brain injury happened. You may not remember all the details about what happened because some brain injury victims have memory loss. Your attorney will ask how the accident happened, the location and what you were doing there and any medical treatments. Be honest with your lawyer. If you have access to witnesses, newspaper articles or accident reports, gather them and provide them to the attorney.
What You Should Not Do In Case of a Brain Injury
If you encounter someone at the scene who was involved in an accident that resulted in your brain injury, be cooperative and courteous, but do not apologize or admit to any guilt. If you do you may be conceding you are liable.
Talk only to your lawyer, the police and your own insurance company about the accident. If another driver’s insurance company calls you, refer them to your lawyer or your own insurance company.
What To Do After You Go Home
When you go home or soon after, contact your insurance company, and don’t lie or they may deny coverage if you’re caught. Obtain a copy of any police report.
If the brain injury occurred in an automobile or on a bicycle, photograph your vehicle and any damage to it. It can help a case to show the vehicle before the accident, too.
Make sure to record visits to doctors and other medical practitioners, the drugs and treatments they prescribe and what you spent on them. Pain and suffering are harder to quantify and qualify, but take notes on how you feel physically and mentally because of the impact of the brain injury.
Also write down all time lost at work, note what activities at work or home that you can no longer participate in, and tell how the aftermath of the wreck has affected your family life.
When Can It Be Considered Neglect?
A person who injures another party may be considered negligent when he acts in a careless and thoughtless manner. Negligence comes in two forms: when the driver failed to do something that would have prevented the accident, or when the driver did something he should not have done.
California law requires drivers to be careful, and they may be considered negligent when they fail to act carefully. A person bringing a lawsuit must prove he was injured through the defendant’s actions, and that he suffered injuries or losses.
