Occipital Lobe Injury
The occipital lobe is the focal point of the visual perception center of the brain, towards the back of the skull. Given the occipital lobe’s position in the brain, it is not terribly vulnerable to injury. When trauma to that area of the brain does occur, however, it can cause damage to our visual perception system and create defects, blind spots and hallucinations. This damage may cause significant short-term and long-term complications.
If you have suffered a brain injury at the occipital lobe, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible and to talk with an experienced personal injury attorney about your options. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our attorneys represent the victims of traumatic brain injuries and aggressively pursue compensation on their behalf.

Given that much of the occipital lobe helps people process visuals, movement and color, damage to one or both sides of this lobe can cause significant disorders with visual hallucinations and illusions. Lesions to the occipital region can even cause seizures, blindness and abnormal coloring on objects.
Trauma to the occipital lobe may come from car, truck and other motor vehicle accidents as well as slip-and-fall accidents, construction site and workplace accidents. When these accidents are caused by negligence, those who are responsible deserve to be held accountable for their mistakes.Learn More About Occipital Lobe Injuries
