Medical Treatment for Brain Injuries
If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury, it is easy to get overwhelmed just thinking about the health issues. It is crucial, however, to contact a Beverly Hills injury attorney as soon as possible. Our injury attorneys are committed to helping brain injury victims obtain the compensation they deserve under California law.
Concussions and Mild TBI Treatment
After a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury, follow your doctor’s orders, avoid drugs and alcohol, get as much rest as possible–particularly from your screens and things that tire the brain (reading, crossword puzzles). Concussions that don’t heal properly can lead to further problems later on.
The emergency medical team should check for blood clots as those can be associated with brain injuries. When the brain bleeds, the blood has nowhere to go and can pool up inside the skull leading to further brain damage.
Relieving Intracranial Pressure
Just like with bleeding, the brain does not have the space it needs when it gets swollen. If the brain swells after an accident, doctors may need to drill into the skull. Placing a shunt to drain excess brain fluid is another possible remedy.
Obtain Medical Help Immediately after a Brain Injury
All brain injuries are a serious medical issue. For this reason, it’s critical to seek medical attention as soon as possible after a head injury. In addition, seeing a medical professional will result in the creation of a medical record that you can use as evidence when it comes time to make a claim.
