What causes head injuries in Sacramento?

Since the head is very sensitive, a traumatic force could lead to severe and catastrophic injuries. For example, accidents include:

What are the different types of head injuries?

Head injuries range from mild to severe injuries. It depends on the person involved in the accident, how the accident occurred, and the person’s medical history. Head injuries can take place in many different ways, including:

  • Concussions: occur when there is an abrupt force to someone’s head. This force could impact someone’s brain function. A concussion that is severe could lead to traumatic brain injuries.
  • Contusion: are bruises in the brain. Bruises occur at the brain’s tissue, and occur when there is a strong force or blow to the head.
  • Hematoma: occurs when there is a buildup of blood in the brain. There are two types of hematomas, which include epidural and subdural hematoma. Both types of hematoma require immediate medical attention. That is why we recommend that you get evaluated by a  doctor as soon as possible after going through an accident. 
  • Fractures: the skull can sustain several different fractures at different points.
  • Anoxic injuries: occur when the brain does not get enough oxygen. This could lead to brain damage.
  • Hypoxic injuries: occur when there is reduced oxygen to the brain. Similar to anoxic injuries, this could also lead to brain damage.
  • Cerebral swelling: is also a very common type of head injury that results from car accidents. This usually happens when someone hits their head on the steering wheel or other objects in the vehicle.
  • Intracranial pressure: this occurs when there’s pressure in the brain that could affect the cells in the brain.
  • Infections: a type of head injury that is not properly treated could lead to infections that may require antibiotics. 

Above are just some examples of head injuries. Head injuries vary depending on the severity, and the accident that caused the head injury. We recommend that for more information and specialized treatment, you visit a medical professional. Our attorneys will handle all the legal steps needed to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties while you focus on taking care of your brain injury. 

How much is a head injury accident worth?

There is no direct way that an attorney will be able to tell you how much your head injury is worth without having all the details of your case. That is why our top-rated attorneys offer 100% free no risk consultations where we will review what kind of accident you went through. During this time, we will go over several different factors, including where the accident took place, the treatment you got, and the doctors you saw.  We will then be able to determine the value of your case.

However, head injuries are considered to be a severe type of injury compared to minor injuries. Therefore head injuries could result in hundreds of thousands of dollars or millions of dollars depending on the medical expenses needed to treat the injury. 

What should I do after an accident?

After you have suffered any type of accident in Sacramento, we recommend that you get evaluated by a medical professional immediately for any damage that could occur to your head. Head injuries could have many symptoms. If you feel symptoms like dizziness, migraines, headaches, memory problems, or felt like you had loss of consciousness, you need immediate medical attention. We recommend that you get medical attention as soon as possible. After you are evaluated, and there’s a medical plan in place, we recommend that you then speak to our attorneys.

Punitive Damages And Head Injuries
