A brain injury is often the worst type of injury a person can experience because the brain controls all the functions of the body. The injuries and damages resulting from brain injuries are complex, and insurance companies often deny brain injury claims and dispute them with full vigor in court. If you have suffered from a brain injury, you need an experienced San Diego brain injury lawyer to receive fair compensation.
Insurance companies are incentivized to discount and minimize the effects of your injuries, regardless of the devastating effects a brain injury can have on your life. From our experience, you won’t receive a fair settlement unless you are represented by a qualified San Diego brain injury lawyer. Contact an experienced San Diego brain injury attorney like James Iagmin before you contact an insurance company. Do not delay, as you may lose valuable legal rights by doing so.

There are two types of brain injuries: traumatic injuries and acquired brain injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines a traumatic brain injury as a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury. A concussion is a common type of traumatic brain injury. A concussion occurs when the brain bounces against the skull and bleeds due to impact, sudden momentum or movement change. Other types of traumatic brain injury include coup-countrecoup injury (whiplash), second impact syndrome (a second traumatic brain injury occurs before a prior traumatic brain injury healed), penetrating brain injury (bullet, knife or other object enters the brain) and post-concussion syndrome (continued concussion-like symptoms after an initial traumatic brain injury).
Acquired Brain Injuries
An acquired brain injury is a non-traumatic brain injury which occurred after birth. Common types of brain injury include stroke, near-drowning (such as a swimming pool or boating accident), asphyxiation (choking), exposure to toxins (such as at the workplace or in a confined space), tumors and other diseases, and electrical shock.
Brain injuries are serious as they directly affect the central nervous system, which controls the functions of the entire body. There are many ways brain injuries can occur.
Common causes of brain injuries include motor vehicle accidents (such as car, truck or motorcycle collisions), physical violence, sports injuries, slip and falls, and other severe blows to the head.
The symptoms and effects of brain injuries include headaches, dizziness, fainting, vomiting, sensitivity to light, depression, anxiety, irritability, difficulty focusing, lost motor skills, lost memory, difficulty finding words, too much or too little sleep, and loss of appetite. If you were involved in an accident and experience any of these symptoms, contact a medical professional immediately and seek treatment. Save all records of the accident and the treatment you receive to protect your legal rights.
Traumatic brain injuries can occur without you knowing. There is often a delayed onset for brain injuries and the effects of the injury may not be fully realized until years after the injury occurred.
Individuals who have suffered from a brain injury are more likely to sustain another one than someone who has never suffered one.
Brain injuries are life changing. They often require extensive medical care, as well as vocational rehabilitation and physical therapy.
