    Hopefully the law will change in California. In the meantime, insurance companies keep racking in record earnings, doctor's premiums are still high despite the drop in claims in the last 38 years. Most importantly, injured victims are denied justice on a regular basis. It is time for a change!

  • Facial or Skull Fracture Attorneys Los Angeles

    A skull or facial skull fracture can be caused from an automobile accident, from the airbag, or a slip and fall accident. A skull or facial skull fracture is break in one or more of the bones in the skull usually occurring as a result of blunt force trauma to the head. This force can be generated from an airbag deployed in an automobile accident. The force of direct impact may cause damage to the underlying physical structures contained within the skull such as the membranes, blood vessels, and brain, even in the absence of a fracture. A severe impact to the skull causing a fracture may also be accompanied by traumatic brain injury. There are several types of skull fractures, including:

    • A simple fracture, which is a break in the bone without damage to the skin.
    • A linear skull fracture, which is a break in a cranial bone resembling a thin line, without splintering, depression, or distortion of bone.
    • A depressed skull fracture, which is a break in a cranial bone with depression of the bone inward toward the brain.
    • A compound fracture, which is a break in, or loss of, skin and splintering of the bone.
    • Basilar fracture, is a break in the bones at the base of the skull, these can range in severity.

    Causes

    Skull fractures can be caused in automobile accidents.

    Skull fractures may also occur when a pedestrian or a bicyclists is struck by an automobile.

    Skull fractures are also common injuries in slip and fall accidents.

    Diagnosis and Treatment

    Treatment for skull fractures primarily is controlling pain, promoting healing, and preventing complications. The primary complication with a skull fracture is potential traumatic brain injury, for which treatment varies significantly based on the type of injury.
