Our brain is the most valuable organ in the human body. It controls all of our bodily functions, and when it is damaged, serious complications often occur. At Amerio Law Firm we understand the difficulties our clients and their families face after an accident that results in brain injury. Our brain injury attorneys are here to help.
Brain injuries can happen in a number of ways. The types of cases involving brain injuries we most commonly handle are:
If you or a loved one suffered a head injury as a result of negligent or reckless actions of another person, you may be entitled to compensation. We can help you investigate how the accident occurred and who is legally responsible for your injuries. Our office is located in Roseville, CA, and we can meet with you for a free case evaluation.
A traumatic brain injury (commonly referred to as TBI) occurs as a result of an external force being applied to a person’s neck or skull. These injuries are divided into two categories, closed head injuries and open head injuries. Closed head injuries typically do not involve any visible injuries beyond bruising or lacerations on the neck or skull. The most common closed head injury is a concussion. Although the damage can’t be seen by the naked eye, these sorts of injuries regularly result in:
Like every organ in the human body, the brain needs a constant flow of oxygen to function properly. When that normal flow is disturbed or cut off, it starves brain cells of oxygen, eventually killing them and causing detrimental consequences that can cause lifelong disabilities or even death. Unlike hypoxic brain injuries that cause partial lack of oxygen to the brain, anoxic brain injuries cut off all sources of oxygen, essentially starving the brain of the nutrients and life source it needs to survive. The complete lack of oxygen caused by anoxic brain injuries is far more serious and can cause extensive, life-altering damage. This can happen in a number of different accidents, including swimming pool accidents, negligent medical professionals or treatment, and blunt force trauma in the event of a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. If you or someone you love has suffered an anoxic brain injury as the result of someone else's reckless or negligent actions, the brain injury attorneys at Amerio Law Firm can help. We are ready to guide you through this difficult time in your life.
A brain hematoma is a collection of blood outside the brain which is usually caused by severe head injuries. This accumulation of blood usually increases pressure on the brain, which can be life-threatening. Even a minor brain hematoma can make normal life difficult because of the debilitating pain. At Amerio Law Firm, our Roseville brain injury attorneys are ready to fight and protect you and your loved ones. We want to help you get the compensation you deserve by conducting a thorough investigation of what happened, determining the parties who could be liable for this tragedy, and putting your interests first.
A concussion is a mild brain injury, but it needs to be taken very seriously because ignoring a concussion can lead to more harm. The National Institute of Health reports that more than one million mild brain injuries are documented each year. Although there are numerous causes of concussions, they are, unfortunately, often the result of the negligent or intentional actions of another person. If you or a loved one has suffered a concussion due to the wrongful behavior of someone else, contact the Roseville brain injury attorneys at Amerio Law Firm today for assistance.
The brain, like other parts of the body, can bruise as a result of trauma or impact. In the brain, these bruises are called contusions. Brain contusions can range in severity from mild to very serious, and they can even be life-threatening. While severe head trauma can occur under a variety of circumstances, it frequently occurs due to the intentional or negligent act of another.
If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident that resulted in a skull fracture, contact a lawyer at Amerio Law Firm today for a free consultation. It is critical to seek immediate medical attention, since skull fractures can also lead to serious brain injuries.
Open head injuries, on the other hand, involve the exposure of the dura (brain) matter. These injuries often cause very serious complications including coma or death:
Explaining the impact of a brain injury can be extremely difficult. Working with an experienced, aggressive and knowledgeable brain injury attorney can often be the difference between a successful recovery and a limited recovery.

We will help the insurance adjuster, defense attorney, and jury understand just how this accident has affected your life or the life of your loved ones.
