Causes

The attorneys at the Ginny WaliaLaw Offices in the bay area are experienced and prepared to investigate, file a lawsuit, and prosecute your case for the maximum recovery. The brain injury attorneys understand that a tramautic brain injury changes the victim and their family’s lives forever. Many of these injuries are caused by lack of oxygen due to the negligence or intentional action of another party.

Lack of oxygen

A common cause for brain injuries is lack of oxygen. This can occur when the blood flow to the head is compromised. Typically an injury to the head with force may cause the brain to shift within the skull, or the force may fracture the bones in the skull which causes trauma to the brain. When the brain is shifted in the skull the oxygen source is compromised often resulting in swelling, bruising, or axonal shearing.

The force of an injury to the skull can pull apart the nerves and damage the brain tissue. Once the brain tissue is torn, oxygen flow to the brain is decreased and can lead to permanent brain damage or death.

The attorneys at Ginny Walia Law Offices are experienced in representing clients or their loved ones with brain injuries. Many of these cases were caused by lack of oxygen to the brain, aneurysms, birth defects, or interruption of blood flow.

Negligence

Many California brain injury accidents are due to the negligence of a third party. With brain injuries, a cause of action may lie in obstetrical negligence. This cause of action is present when a doctor fails to deliver the newborn properly. Tragically, the newborn may suffer brain trauma which will affect them their entire life.

Common causes for obstetrical negligence include failure to properly conduct caesarean sections. Most often, the caesarean section is not performed early enough and the child suffers hypoxic or anoxic brain damage. Many people living with brain damage should not have been born with the disabling brain condition. However, many doctors fail to monitor the fetal heart-rates and children may be living with disabilities such as cerebral palsy.
