Are brain injuries always diagnosed in the initial emergency room visit? Let's ask San Francisco lawyer Claude Wyle in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

Claude Wyle:

In my experience, the really serious brain injury with a coma is an obvious injury. However, in most of our cases, the brain injury is not with someone knocked out for hours and hours and hours or days. The brain injury, usually, is a brief lapse in consciousness and then later a difference in the cognition or mental horsepower of the person who's been in the collision. This needs to be carefully investigated. You need to have the right doctors, the right psychologists, the right testing in order to tease that out and be able to prove it. If you don't know what you're doing, you cannot prove a brain injury.
