Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s)

A traumatic brain injury is a sudden physical damage to the brain. It is commonly known as “The Silent Epidemic” and can be classified as mild, moderate or severe. There are two types of brain injuries: traumatic brain injury and acquired brain injury. Physical, behavioral or mental changes in a victim are dependent upon which areas of the brain is injured:

  • Focal brain damage – the damage is confined to just a small area of the brain
  • “Closed head” – damage is scattered and includes other areas of the brain
  • Diffuse damage – damage as a result of the brain moving back and forth against the skull

The effects of brain damage are generally greatest immediately following the injury but long term problems can occur as well, resulting in permanent difficulties. It can cause cognitive impairments like trouble concentrating, trouble organizing thoughts and being easily confused or forgetful. The most common ways in which a traumatic brain injury occurs is:

  • Blunt force – where the head of the victim is struck by another object. Very common with football players.
  • Piercing – where an object penetrates the skull and enters the cranial cavity.
  • Whiplash – where the head snaps back and forth rapidly.

Anyone who has suffered a brain injury has also suffered past and future medical expenses, lost wages and other economic and noneconomic damages that should be compensated. Contact our injury attorney in Fairfield CA for free consultation about your case.

A simple “bump on the head” could be hard to tell but in more severe cases of brain injury, the physical symptoms could be:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Disorientation or confusion
  • A persistent headache
  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Dizziness or loss of balance

    This is my second time hiring Mr. Choyce for my son, who was charged with a criminal act. Both times that I hired Mr. Choyce, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism, and the fact that he was relatable. He is trustworthy, tells you the truth about what you are facing. He is organized, he is a very good listener, came up with strategies that were appealing.I can’t say enough good about Mr. Choyce! I knew that he was going to give my son’s case everything he had, and he did!

    Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled. I would strongly recommend Mr Choyce and his team to anyone I know that needs legal representation he knows the law and will provide you with the best service you could hope for form a lawyer that wants to win.

    “This is my second time using Mr. Choyce, and I would choose no one other than him. Both times that I hired him, it was for my son, and they were very serious cases. Mr. Choyce is smart, professional, practical, and relatable. He is a serious person, who listens, speaks in laymens terms, so that you understand what is going on. Not like some that I have experience, who talk over you, and dont take the time to really answer your questions.The second case got very close to going to trial, however, I was confident that I had the best of the best representing my son. Thank God that after willing to go to trial, we got a deal that, I think was a win win.I would definitely, without a question, hire Mr. Choyce again!”
