Law firm’s business
Approximately 1.4 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury each year, according to the Brain Injury Association of America. Approximately 235,000 of these individuals require hospitalization, and roughly 50,000 succumb to their injuries and expire. A traumatic brain injury is a severe injury or blow to the head which, although it causes no identifiable fracture to the skull, results in significant and/or irreparable damage to the brain.
One of the cruel ironies of brain injuries is that many victims that sustain them appear to retain normal functionality. Unfortunately, these individuals have a profoundly disabling brain injury that results in memory loss, cognitive impairments, and emotional and behavioral changes that leave the affected individual unable to earn a living, and some cases, unable to accomplish the required tasks of daily life.

Cases involving injuries to the brain are extraordinarily complex and require highly skilled attorneys experienced in handling traumatic brain injury cases. If you are in need of an experienced brain injury attorney in San Diego, Foldenauer Law Group is here to help. We focus on handling a variety of serious life altering injury cases including those involving traumatic brain injuries. Our attorneys have the experience and resources necessary to get our clients the results they are entitled to and deserve.

  • How am I going to pay for the costs associated with my treatment?
  • Will I be able to recover for lost wages and pain and suffering?
  • Should I sign the documents I have been given?
Foldenauer Law Group’s experienced brain injury attorneys will provide you with answers to any questions you may have relating to your injuries, treatment, or legal options.

There are two primary brain injury types:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Acquired Brain Injuries

Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external force impacts the head with enough force to cause the brain to move within the skull, or alternatively, causes the skull itself to break causing direct harm to the brain. Several types of injuries can produce traumatic brain injuries including:
  • Car, truck or motorcycle accidents
  • Physical violence
  • Cycling accidents
  • Sporting accidents
  • Direct trauma to the head

Symptoms associated with traumatic brain injuries often include:

  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Pupil dilation
  • Impaired vision
  • Amnesia
  • Memory Loss
  • Dizziness
  • Abnormal fluid production in the ears, or nose
  • Complete respiratory failure
  • Comas
  • Paralysis or partial paralysis
  • Vomiting
  • Sleepiness
  • Headache

Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics

  • In the United States, someone sustains a traumatic brain injury every 21 seconds.
  • Approximately 5 million people in the United States live with disabilities resulting from a traumatic brain injury.
  • Every year, nearly 1.5 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury.
  • Over 50,000 deaths occur each year are the result of traumatic brain injuries.

Acquired Brain Injury

Unlike a traumatic brain injury, an acquired brain injury takes place at the cellular level within the brain. That is, acquired brain injuries affect the cells throughout the entire brain as opposed to traumatic brain injuries which only affect a specific part of the brain. There are also two types of acquired brain injuries: Anoxic Brain Injuries, which occur when the brain is completely deprived of oxygen, and Hypoxic Brain Injuries, which occur when the brain receives some but not enough oxygen.

Causes of Acquired Brain Injuries can include:

  • Airway obstructions
  • Choking or strangulation
  • Drowning
  • Shock
  • Head or neck trauma
  • Vascular disruption
  • Heart attack or stroke
  • Infectious disease
  • Brain tumors
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Meningitis
  • Exposure to toxic agents
  • Drug Use
