Take Action After a Serious Injury: Call Bostwick & Peterson, LLP

What causes traumatic brain injuries? Many different types of accidents can result in these devastating injuries. From athletes to construction workers, serious head injuries are a real danger and the impact can be devastating. Anyone can suffer a traumatic brain injury.

Some types of accidents that often result in brain injuries include, although they are not limited to:

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury

How do you know if you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury?

Common symptoms of brain injury after the fact might include:

  • Confusion / agitation
  • Changes in cognition
  • Fuzzy / foggy vision
  • Increased fatigue
  • Numbness in extremities
  • Weakness
  • Lack of coordination
  • Seizures
  • Severe migraine headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Inability to focus
  • Ringing ears
  • Strange tastes in the mouth
  • Light sensitivity / sound sensitivity
  • Memory loss
  • Changes in mood or behavior including increased aggression or impatience
  • Extreme anxiety
  • Depression

Sometimes these types of injuries can be tough to diagnose. Symptoms may not show up immediately: They could begin to occur days, weeks, or even months after the event of the accident. For this reason, proving the injury can be difficult.

It is necessary that you consult an experienced and knowledgeable brain injury lawyer in Riverside or San Bernardino who understands these types of cases and can protect your rights with excellence. At Bostwick & Peterson, LLP, we handle TBI cases throughout the Inland Empire. Call now to learn how we can help.

Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

Another brain injury that can have devastating consequences is Hypoxic/anoxic brain injury which is caused by restricted oxygen flow to brain tissue and can result in brain cell damage and conditions such as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). When medical professionals fail to act within the accepted standard of care during pregnancy and childbirth they greatly increase the chance for life-altering birth injuries like HIE.
