New Developments In San Fran Fan Who Suffered Brain Injury After Season Opener

New Developments In San Fran Fan Who Suffered Brain Injury After Season Opener

Last Monday our Charleston auto accident attorneys shared an extremely sad story about fanatical Dodgers followers who inflicted serious head injuries on a 42-year-old Giants fan. The suspects wanted for beating the man senseless had yet to be caught then, and they are still at large.

Today, the Los Angeles Police Department announced they will be putting up 300 billboards in the area in hopes of catching those responsible for the ambush, beating, and nearly fatal injuries suffered by the Giants fan in the first week of the Major League Baseball season.

In better news, the man was taken out of his medically induced coma last week, and has shown positive progress in his cognitive functions, including opening his eyes several times over the last week in response to verbal or physical stimulation. Also, he has shown some movement in his arms and legs, according to his physician.

While the victim’s condition improves after the suffering serious brain injuries, police are hoping the 300 billboards in the Los Angeles area will help improve their chances of finding those responsible for the attack.

The physical damages and economic losses caused by severe accidents and injuries are usually substantial. Brain injuries can seriously restrict the victims ability to live their life with family members, close friends and work colleagues as they did prior to their getting hurt. For example: many with brain injuries are limited in the workplace after their accident, if they are even able to return to their jobs, because of difficulties including, but not limited to, problems with their short and long term memory, mood or personality changes that make them incapable of dealing with co-workers or customers, and/or debilitated by frequent and severe headaches.

Any of these alone can lead to significant financial troubles by way of lost wages and medical bills, not to mention overall damages to quality of life. Furthermore, a brain injury can lead to other medical conditions such as depression and anxiety. All types of trauma and/or exposure to toxins and other environmental factors can cause brain injuries, some signs to look for after a serious accident: loss of consciousness, concussion, easily confused or irritated, difficulty multitasking, short and/or long term memory loss, severe headaches, and mood or personality change.
