Brain & Head Injury Attorney in San Diego
A couple of the most serious types of injuries someone can suffer are spinal cord and brain injuries.
Time Is of the Essence
Depending on the victim, injuries or symptoms from these types of injuries can be (or become quickly) complicated. Additionally, people’s memories about the incident that led to the injuries, can fade. Furthermore, evidence can be lost or witnesses can move or become unavailable. Therefore, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your case. Call the Law Offices of Gregory Montegna at (619) 691-1500.
Brain and head injuries can require extensive complicated surgery. The injured person may suffer diminishing abilities. The injury may affect the person’s cognitive ability, memory, and motor skills. The injury may cause permanent brain damage or even death.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can involve paralysis and nerve damage that can leave the injured person fully or partially paralyzed. The damage to the injured person’s nerve system can leave the person unable to function (physically) normally.
Injuries to the brain or spine can occur in a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Car accident
- Slip and Fall
- Nursing home abuse
- Accident occurring in a hospital
- Police misconduct or use of excessive force
- Motorcycle accident
- Truck accident
- Accident occurring on someone else’s property
Some traumatic brain injuries can result from internal wounds. If a head injury has occurred, it is important to undergo a thorough medical examination as soon as possible. Also, never sign any form(s) or agree to a settlement before speaking with an attorney. Many times, victims in accidents are taken advantage of by other insurance companies, including the victim’s own insurance company, who often try to undervalue the monetary value of the case to the injured party and get the injured party to sign forms closing out the case and foreclosing the injured person’s rights.
With our decades of experience in personal injury and brain and head injuries here at the Law Offices of Gregory A. Montegna, we understand that the results of a traumatic brain injury can not only include symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, memory problems and nausea, but symptoms can also include blurred vision and ringing in the ears. Additionally, some lesser known symptoms can include depression, difficulty sleeping, difficulty focusing, and emotional and mood swings.
As you can see, there are many factors that can play an important role in the outcome of your case. Additionally, time is of the essence. Memories fade, evidence or witnesses can get lost or become unavailable, and if the Government is involved there are special (much shorter) deadlines that must be met.
