Brain Injury Information
Brain anatomy is the most complex subject areas in the human body. There are a few distinct general areas of the brain, each with countless nuances and functions. Because of the complicated nature of the human brain, personal injury litigation involving injuries to the brain is extremely complex, requiring experience and resources from the legal team handling the claim.
At Hiepler & Hiepler, we have a wealth of experience handing personal injury and wrongful death claims involving brain injuries. Our attorneys represent clients in Los Angeles, throughout the state of California and beyond. Contact us to learn more.
Anatomy Of The Brain
Our lawyers represent clients who have suffered injuries to:
- The cerebellum: One of the primary functions of the cerebellum is coordinating and modulating other actions. Accident victims with injuries to the cerebellum suffer from coordination and timing loss, loss of balance, speech impediments, problems with verbal memory and other problems. Injuries to the cerebellum can have a profound impact on every facet of an accident victim's life.
- The frontal lobe: The frontal lobe controls a great deal of a person's thinking tasks like reasoning, focusing, making critical distinctions, problem solving and decision-making, as well as personality traits like self-control, temperament, inhibition control and aggressiveness, to name a few. People who suffer frontal lobe injuries often seem like "a different person" after the accident, and their lives are never the same.
- The temporal lobe: The temporal lobe controls the hearing, long-term memory and visual recognition. Victims of temporal lobe injuries can experience changes in sexual behavior, loss of muscle control, loss of emotional control and increased instances of uncontrollable anger.
- The parietal lobe: This part of the brain, which sits near the top of the skull, takes in sensory information from other parts of the body and organizes it into a cohesive whole. Parietal lobe injury victims can experience a range of difficulties that includes loss of spatial recognition and focus, loss of reading and comprehension skills, language disorders and loss of hand-eye coordination.
- The occipital lobe: Identifying visual information is one of the most important functions of the brain, a function handled by the occipital lobe. People who have suffered occipital lobe injuries can experience color blindness, visual hallucinations, loss of reading and writing skills, and the inability to locate objects.
An injury to any one of these areas of the brain can be catastrophic to victims and their families, changing their lives forever.
