What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are any brain injuries that result from an accident or injury-causing incident or event.
TBIs are generally categorized in the following two ways:
- Closed-Head Injuries: These TBIs occur without an outside penetrating force; examples include anoxic- and hypoxic-related brain injuries, asphyxiation, concussions, and contusions
- Open-Head Injuries: These injuries involve outside forces which penetrate the skull and/or pierce or penetrate the brain; an example would be a gunshot wound to the head
TBIs are also classified on a scale from mild to moderate to severe. However, it’s important to note that no brain injury is truly “minor;” all are incredibly serious and require prompt medical attention and treatment. That being said, an example of a relatively mild TBI would be a concussion or minor brain contusion, whereas a moderate or severe TBI would be a coup-contrecoup or diffuse axonal injury.
Liability in Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
Like in any other personal injury case, establishing liability is key to winning a traumatic brain injury lawsuit. In order to recover compensation for your damages, you will need to prove that another person, company, or entity was negligent or acted wrongfully and that this was what led to your injury.
To do this, our attorneys will conduct an exhaustive investigation into the accident that resulted in your or your loved one’s TBI. We look at a variety of factors and work with numerous experts, including medical professionals and accident reconstructionists, in order to determine exactly what happened and who is to blame.
Some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Construction accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Sports injuries
- Dog bites
- Drowning accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
Once we are able to establish that another person or party breached their duty of care to you, resulting in an accident or incident that led to your brain injury, we can begin the process of filing your personal injury claim and seeking compensation on your behalf.
