“Being struck by a violent force is the common cause of TBI incidents. Data from the CDC also showed that 16.5% of the victims were hit in the head by another person or an object, either intentional or accidental. Most cases of physical assault, domestic abuse and work-related mishaps also have victims either hospitalized or dying from TBI.
It is critical for victims to seek an experienced Los Angeles brain injury attorney when the patient’s head trauma is a direct outcome of premeditated actions. Effects of the damage may range from minor headaches and nausea to serious long-term brain conditions or paralysis. Harm to the skull or any penetrating wounds will develop an infection while disturbing the nerves may engender vision and sensation problems.”
