Brain Injuries and Auto Accidents

Brain injuries are not uncommon results of auto accidents. Brain injuries can occur as a result of forceful impact from a car accident which causes passengers to hit their heads on parts of the car such as the windshield or dashboard. Flying objects from a crash might also come into contact with a passengers head and cause a brain injury. Everyone responds differently to such injuries and the severity of the injury varies from each individual.

Those who suffer from mild traumatic brain injuries may experience confusion, dizziness, trouble concentrating, headaches, fatigue, blurred vision and fatigue. They may even have slight mood changes. Moderate to severe cases of traumatic brain injuries can cause nausea, vomiting, seizures, muscle weakness, sensory deficiencies, tingling in the arms and legs, severe headaches and loss of coordination. While moderate to severe cases of traumatic brain injuries are easier for a physician to diagnose through CT scans and MRI’s, mild cases are not. A study published in Neurology found that even mild traumatic brain injuries can cause serious cognitive disabilities in people affected by brain trauma.

Just fewer than 140 people die every day from traumatic brain injuries and car accidents are the third leading cause of such injuries in the U.S. according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They are also the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury deaths. Luckily customized treatment plans are available which can include occupational, physical and speech therapy.

Those who have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury as a result of an auto accident should consider seeking legal advice from an experienced attorney. An attorney can be your guide through the legal process and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Getting Started: Why Work with Calwillstrusts

Before Hiring an Estate Planning Lawyer Understand the Difference

Many estate planning attorneys take a “one-size fits all” approach with their clients; they do this so that they can work with as many people as possible in a short period of time.  The problem is that the client has an impersonal experience; but worse than that, this way of planning can lead to unintended results in the long run for the family.

When lawyers do not take the time to listen and consider a family’s personal circumstances, the result is that your Will &Trust Documents do not end up reflecting what your family really wants to happen.  And usually there is no review or updating, so the plan quickly becomes outdated and does not work when your family needs it most.
