You May Be Entitled to Damages – Call Now to Learn More

One of the most serious and complex types of catastrophic injuries are traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Traumatic brain injuries can have a profound effect on the way a person thinks, feels, and interacts with other people. In severe cases, brain injuries can be permanent and require a lifetime of specialized care. Serious brain injuries that occur as a result of another person’s negligence may entitle the victim to financial damages.

Examining the Causes & Types of Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries are often the result of a sudden and forceful trauma that causes damage to the brain. This is commonly the result of a motor vehicle accident, industrial or other workplace accident, slip and fall accident, or violent assault.

There are five types of traumatic brain injuries, including:

  • Concussion: Caused by a whiplash injury or a direct blow to the head
  • Contusion: Bruised and bleeding tissue that usually requires surgical removal
  • Coup-contrecoup: The force of an impact can cause injury to both sides of the brain
  • Diffuse axonal: Usually caused by violent rotating or shaking of the head
  • Penetration: Caused by foreign objects that penetrate through the skull

Depending on the severity of the injury, damage to the brain can severely interfere with a person’s ability to function, and could even leave the victim in a permanent vegetative state.
