Welcome to Ehline Law Firm. My name is Michael Ehline, Attorney at Law. I am an expert in medicine and law because PI lawyers require knowledge of the PDR (Physician’s Desk Reference).
Our compassionate injury law firm’s focus is assisting injured accident victims to recover compensation from the at-fault party. My goal is to mentor less fortunate people to become lawyers without an undergrad or law degree.
Below, I am covering the most severe brain injury types to help you better understand this type of claim and the potential benefits of opening a case.
Traumatic brain injuries are horrendous, but people find them harder to handle when negligence causes a severe traumatic brain injury. The most severe traumatic brain injuries are those with severe injury to the brain, and you need California brain injury legal services immediately.
A brain injury, often called head trauma, concussion, brain damage, or a traumatic brain injury, is often catastrophic. A sudden and profound injury to the brain can take an immense financial, psychological, and physical toll on the injured person and their family.
It would help if you understood the different degrees of brain tissue damage; when someone else’s negligence caused the event, this is a challenge to face alone.
An injury to the brain usually means a loss of consciousness, though this might not happen with a mild traumatic brain injury. A blow to the head from a gunshot wound is an example of a penetrating brain injury. A closed brain injury might occur from a motor vehicle accident, shaken baby syndrome, or another blunt-force trauma.
Doctors claim that a traumatic brain injury indicates there was a jolt to the head, and it can cause skull fractures, damage blood vessels, and pop them. The brain cannot receive oxygen, and this causes the cells within to die, making brain injuries one of the worst, and you must determine what types are most severe.
An explosion caused this type of head injury. A person might have penetrating injuries from this or closed brain injuries.
This is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) where the cranium stays intact, and it can be severe, resulting in pressure on the brain, brain bleed, concussion, and other trauma.
Motor vehicle accidents, blunt force, and falls where the impact forces the neck and head to jolt backward or forward are typical causes, and these are the most common type of traumatic brain injury.
Typically, a break or fracture within the cranium, often by a foreign object or against the ground, causes this type of brain injury. These open head injuries might cause brain hemorrhages and even death.
A diffuse axonal injury is the most devastating of brain injuries, and the person who receives this injury remains in a persistent vegetative state for many months or years. Rotational, acceleration, and deceleration forces, such as car accidents, usually cause this type of traumatic brain injury.
With this injury, oxygen cannot get to the brain, depriving it of the nutrients required to work correctly. This often occurs from a traumatic event like a birth injury, medical malpractice, or a near-drowning.
A recurrent traumatic brain injury is when a second brain injury occurs following a primary brain injury.
An injury to the head is more common than most Americans realize, and minor head injuries often go undiagnosed for many days. The CDC estimates over 1.5 million people suffer from this type of injury each year. About 85,000 of these cases have a long-term disability relating directly to the damage. The symptoms can include:
Patients with severe injuries show a decline in health and other issues, and they mainly occur from falls or related problems. However, the patient may regain partial cognitive functionality, vision, and speech with time and rehabilitation, though this is not always the case.
If someone else’s negligence caused your TBI or that of a loved one, it is time to call a Los Angeles brain injury attorney. Ehline Law Firm is there to assist severely injured accident victims. We’ve won more than $150 million for satisfied clients and are ready to take on your case. You may receive a free consultation when you call (213) 596-9642, but clients can use the online consultation form, too.
You must seek the right health information from a medical professional, regardless of the TBI type (moderate or severe). Losing consciousness and bleeding in the brain are two primary causes of concern. Negligence against children is worse, and an injury called a shaken baby syndrome, a form of child abuse, is terrible, but our law firm is here to help.
A penetrating injury has many common causes, including getting hit by shrapnel or a bullet, getting stabbed with a knife, and much more. Regardless, your TBI may result from the negligence of another party. It would help if you made a note of all your symptoms, and it is important to keep track of every document.
Ehline Law Firm understands what you require, and we work hard for adults and children suffering from such serious injury. If medical malpractice caused the traumatic injury, the time is now to call (213) 596-9642; our aggressive, caring, compassionate lawyers can provide your free consultation.
We can determine if your TBI symptoms relate to negligence; you receive the compensation you deserve with that knowledge. Even if you have a less severe injury, a mild TBI, or other symptoms, you still might have a case.
