Are you a victim of a brain injury?
Statistics indicate that for individuals under the age of 75, half of all traumatic brain injuries are the result of automobile accidents, bicycles or motorcycle accidents. For those over the age of 75, brain injuries are caused mostly by slips and falls. In the United States more than one million people are treated for brain injuries in the emergency rooms.
When an individual sustained a traumatic brain injury it is because of severe, physical trauma to a localized area of the brain. It happens when the head is hit hard enough to shake the brain within the skull. A non-traumatic brain injury is damage to the brain which can result from a wide range of medical conditions such as infection, stroke, anoxia or a tumor.
If you suffered a brain injury because of the negligent actions of another person, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will evaluate your case for negligence or medical malpractice.
