Like many of your neighbors, friends and family members, you have found the perfect person with whom to enjoy your life. If your spouse or domestic partner suffers a serious injury or dies, you may experience an unfillable void. Fortunately, California law may allow you to pursue compensation from whoever is responsible for your loved one’s injury or death.
Many people in California have likely heard reports about incidents in which a person experiences trauma to their head. Some of these events can result in what is called a traumatic brain injury. As explained by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, a TBI is a special type of injury that is marked by a disruption in the brain's ability to function normally.
Brain damage is one of the most common concerns when someone suffers a concussion, and while brain injury is perhaps the most thought of consequence from a blow to the head, a concussion can cause lasting harm to a person in other ways, such as negatively impacting a person’s ability to hear. This kind of damage can be temporary or permanent, and can drastically impact your quality of life in San Jose, California.
