There Is Nothing Minor About a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
The idea of a “mild” traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a bit of a misnomer, as any injury to the brain is extremely serious. However, mild TBI is defined as describing an individual who has had a traumatically induced physiological disruption of brain function, as manifest by at least one of the following:
- Loss of consciousness (30 minutes or less)
- Loss of memory for events immediately before or after the injury occurred (but not post-traumatic amnesia lasting more than 24 hours)
- Alteration in mental state
- Focal neurological defects
There are additional specifics that go into classifying different types of TBI, but the bottom line is that if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a mild TBI, or any TBI for that matter, it is crucial to speak to a knowledgeable Sacramento brain injury attorney who can explain your rights.
