Representing Victims Of Closed Head Injuries

Serious closed head injuries, including brain bleeds, can occur even without a blow to the head. On some occasions, people who have suffered such an injury show few symptoms. Victims may remain conscious and simply complain of a headache. Eventually, they may experience confusion, disorientation, severe headache and even coma. If left untreated, some brain bleeds can prove fatal.

Brain bleeds can have a dramatic, lasting effect on victims. They can lead to permanent physical and cognitive disability and mounting medical bills. A brain injury attorney can assist you in obtaining necessary compensation. Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP of San Francisco is an experienced law firm that has represented brain-injured victims for more than 30 years.

Head Injuries Occur In Several Ways

A closed head injury can happen in ways that include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: This injury can occur from whiplash or striking your head on the ground after an accident. Pedestrians are especially vulnerable.
  • Falls from heights: Construction workers face such dangers, as do do-it-yourself home renovators while on ladders or scaffolding.
  • Recreational accidents: A bicyclist with or without a helmet is prone to such an injury; so are people involved in diving accidents.
  • Violent situations: Blunt force to the head can lead to a person falling and striking his or her head on a street or sidewalk.
