Between car accidents, construction accidents, and truck accidents, many people across the U.S. suffer from brain & spinal cord injuries every day. These types of injuries are extremely severe because of the delicate nature of these parts of the body. A majority of a person's bodily functions and movements depend on the health of the brain and spinal cord so an injury to these can be devastating.
If you or a loved one has sustained a brain or spinal cord injury because of a negligent accident in the Pasadena area, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering and losses. Speak with our dedicated injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus to learn about your legal options.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden physical assault on the head causes damage to the brain. There are two general types of brain injuries, open or closed. A closed injury occurs when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, but the object does not break through the skull. A penetrating injury occurs when an object pierces through the skull and enters the brain tissue. Both types of injuries can lead to paralysis, loss of vital body functions, and even death.
The spinal cord connects the brain to the body and transmits signals that control movement & sensation. A person with a spinal cord injury can suffer from paralysis or loss of bladder or bowel control, both of which can be debilitating and life-changing. It can take a person years to recover from a spinal cord injury, and the rehabilitation and medical costs associated with this type of injury can be excessive.
