Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

When some is dealt a blow to the head, the brain is shaken up in the skull. There are a few factors that can impact the severity of the trauma, such as:

  • The shape of the object
  • Where the impact occurred
  • The duration of the impact
  • The stiffness of the object
  • The force of the impact

The injuries have different levels of severity and will affect each person differently. A traumatic brain injury victim may find they have to readjust several areas of their life. In fact, they may be unable to continue living the way they used to before the injury.

What’s more, the victim’s physical abilities, personality, and mental state may alter after an injury to their brain.

Three Categories of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can be classified into three categories:

  • Mild – victims suffer a period of confusion, lost consciousness, or feel disorientated for 30 minutes or less
  • Moderate – victims experience memory loss or longer period of unconsciousness
  • Severe – victims suffer impaired cognitive periods and even fall into a coma

The Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The number one cause of TBI among adults and adolescents is motor vehicle accidents. Particularly, men between the ages of 15 – 24 are most susceptible to brain injuries because of their high-risk lifestyles. The elderly and children under the age of 4 are also vulnerable to brain injuries as a result of slip and fall accidents.

Other causes of brain injuries include:

  • Physical assault
  • Construction site accidents
  • Accidents outdoors, at home, and at work
  • Athletic accidents
  • Shaken-baby syndrome

Neurological Injuries Can Be Life-Changing

Our neurological systems are incredibly complicated. From the network of nerves to our spinal cords, and the brain, even a minor injury or disease to our neurological system can result in a life-changing experience.

The Consequences of Neurological Injuries

Some of the most common causes of neurological injuries include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Truck accidents

Common effects of neurological injuries include loss of speech and impaired mobility. But, such injuries can have wide-reaching consequences that can affect every area of the patient’s life. Neurological injuries can affect daily elements such as your sensitivity to heat and your ability to taste food. While these items are not typically brought up in personal injury litigation, we think they should be. That’s why our brain injury team work in close collaboration with the top neurological experts to determine the full range of effects of neurological injuries on our clients.

If you, or someone you love, has suffered a brain injury, neurological injury or spinal cord injury, it is vital that you consult with one of our attorneys.
