We Understand How Much A Brain Injury Affects Your Life
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is considered to be any alteration of brain function caused by an external force. While some traumatic brain injuries are obvious, many people have closed head injuries, which can be harder to diagnose. If you suffered a head injury in an accident and you have been experiencing symptoms associated with TBI, you should consult with a doctor, and then a Ventura attorney about your possible traumatic brain injury.

We understand the lifelong impact a traumatic brain injury can have on you and your family. We will help you obtain the compensation you need to cover medical expenses, lost wages and other costs associated with your injury.
Causes And Symptoms Of TBI
According to the CDC, the most common cause of traumatic brain injury is motor vehicle accidents. Many things can potentially cause TBI, including construction accidents and falls.
There are two forms of TBI: closed head injuries, such as a severe blow to the head, and penetrating injuries, where the skull and brain are penetrated by a foreign object.
Symptoms of TBI are typically classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the symptom and the affect it is having on the individual. Common symptoms of TBI include:
- Blurred vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Agitation or mood swings
- Slurred speech
- Convulsions or seizures
- Weakness or numbness in fingers or toes
