What is a Head Injury?
Head injuries are any number of injuries that affect the skull, brain, tissue or blood vessels of the head. Examples of head injuries are concussions, skull fractures and intracranial hematoma (blood clots).
What is Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury is a type of head injury that affects one or more areas of the brain. They can be caused by external physical force. Traumatic brain injuries can cause concussion, contusion, neurological deficits and permanently impair cognitive abilities, physical functions and emotional functioning. Traumatic brain and head injuries can cause changes in speech, mobility, motor control, memory and behavior. There are two types of traumatic brain injuries, closed and penetrating.
A closed head injury is a traumatic brain injury where the damage to the brain cannot be seen. An example of a closed head injury might be lack of oxygen or other brain trauma caused by negligence during the delivery of a baby.
An penetrating head injury is a traumatic brain injury where the wound to the head is obvious, due to an object breaking the skin.
Either type of traumatic brain injury can cause a range of symptoms ranging from mild headaches to seizures, coma and death. The type of brain injury depends on the severity and location of the trauma.
What are Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury?
The most common causes of traumatic brain injury are car and motorcycle accidents, falls, physical assaults, accidents and sports activities.
Do I Have A Brain Injury Case?
If you believe that you or a loved one's head or brain injury was caused by negligence, you may have a case. Examples of negligence that could be a cause for a brain injury case are construction site accidents and birth injuries.
Living with a Brain Injury
People who have traumatic brain injuries are often permanently disabled. They may lose functions including muscle, speech, vision and hearing. Oftentimes brain injuries are very severe and will require long-term medical care and rehabilitation. The individual and their family may have to adapt to an entirely different way of life. Beyond the physical disabilities, a brain injury can also affect the person's personality, memory, finances, work situation and personal relationships. A competent brain injury attorney can help you recover monetary damages. These damages may include financial compensation for medical bills, therapy and pain and suffering. In cases where the victim dies, the family is left with the loss of a loved one as well as the loss of financial support, funeral and medical expenses, loss of inheritance, and if children are involved, the loss of nurture and guidance from their deceased parent.
