When we are enjoying the summer, we want to be outside, in the pool. Maybe we are having a barbeque, and inviting friends over. Children are playing, and memories are being made. But when someone gets injured, it can ruin the day. When someone receives a brain injury, not only is their life potentially in jeopardy, loved ones are a part of this crisis as well. The brain injury lawyers at JML want to talk about a recent event that happened in Riverside, involving a wife and mother and a tragic pool accident.
What happened in this Riverside brain injury tragedy?
According to reports, Maria Davis, 43, was having fun in the pool with her family when “an unfortunate jump into the pool caused a traumatic brain injury.” After a week on life support, her family made the heart-wrenching decision to take her off life support, and she died on September 26, 2020.
She leaves behind her husband Greg, and her four children, Brianna, Jacob, Adam, and Zoie.
A simple accident, a carefree moment turned into tragedy. Brain injuries are much more common than most people think and can have debilitating results.
A brain injury can cause terrible lifelong problems
Our brains are responsible for sensory input, brain activities, breathing, and other regulatory functions of our bodies. Any injury can have a monumental impact on the quality of life of an individual. Some of the most common results of a brain injury are:
- Balance issues

There are several reasons for head injuries. They are all tragic in their own way. Reasons these injuries occur could be caused by, but not limited to:
- Car accidents
- Drunk driving incidents
