San Diego Brain Injury Attorney: Legal Tips for Recovery
When Is Someone Liable For Your Brain Injury in San Diego?
Brain injuries can often be very serious and you will need prompt and essential medical attention from a neurologist or neuropsychologist. Unfortunately‚ this medical treatment can be very expensive due to the complexity of the human brain. Someone may be responsible for paying for your trauma if they were negligent and caused the accident which injured your brain. However‚ proving negligence can be very difficult due to the complex nature of these accidents. That is why hiring an experienced San Diego personal injury attorney is so important.
Car Accidents & Brain Injuries
When you are involved in a car accident‚ your head often jolts in an awkward and unnatural way. It is common to suffer a concussion after a car accident due to sudden head jerking. Also‚ your head can hit the side or top of your car which could cause severe (and sometimes permanent) brain damage.
Attacks and Assaults
Fights and attacks are also common sources of brain injuries. When you are struck in your head‚ or pushed causing a fall‚ you can suffer from traumatic brain injuries. Since inflicting this kind of force is illegal‚ it is easy to impose liability on the wrongdoer.
Slip and Falls
When you slip and fall due to a slippery floor‚ you can suffer from head contusions‚ concussions‚ or worse. Businesses‚ restaurants‚ and stores have to ensure that their floor is not slippery. Some slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries to your brain. Thus‚ if you slip and fall‚ through no fault of your own‚ the property owner may be liable.
It is no secret that alcohol kills brain cells and impairs brain function. And excessive alcohol can lead to permanent brain injuries. Bars and restaurants have a duty not to over-serve their patrons. Thus‚ they are obligated not to serve someone who is already too intoxicated.
Defective products can cause brain injuries as well. Defective air bags and seat belts‚ for example can lead to traumatic brain injuries. Also‚ medicine that does not provide adequate directions or warnings can lead to brain injuries if the medicine is not used properly.
