Visalia residents, trauma to the brain can cause a range of life-changing and even life-threatening conditions. The brain stem, cerebellum and four major lobes work together to manage every human function. People whose parietal lobe, occipital lobe, temporal lobe or frontal lobe are traumatized may lose many abilities. An injured person may seek legal recourse by way of a Visalia brain injury settlement to pay for medical bills and living expenses.
Brain Injuries Are A Very Serious Matter
The human brain is divided into four sections, or lobes. The occipital lobe is the part where visual input is processed. In the frontal lobe, people feel emotions, make plans and devise solutions to problems. The parietal lobe of the brain is associated with perception, orientation and recognition. Memories are stored in the temporal lobe.
Traumatic Cerebellum Damage Is Life Changing
The convoluted structure known as the cerebellum is the part of the brain that is responsible for balance, posture and movement. Brain damage that involves the cerebellum can cause paralysis. The brain stem is directly connected to the spinal column where damage can cause a person to lose the use of their arms, legs or both.
