If you face a lifetime of special care, we want you to have a lifetime of resources to draw on.
Causes of traumatic brain injury
The leading causes of TBIs are falls, vehicle collisions, violent acts, sports, and explosions. Brain cells are damaged by incidents that cause one of the following events to happen:
- Impact — A blow to the skull or the shock from an explosion causes damage at the point of impact and possibly at several points as the brain moves back and forth within the skull.
- Penetration — An object that penetrates the skull tears brain tissue. Subsequent bleeding can cause additional damage as pressure within the skull builds.
- Severe shaking — A severe jolt, rotation or whiplash movement can move the brain back and forth within the cranium, tearing brain tissue. Children whose abuse causes them to suffer what is known as “shaken baby syndrome” often exhibit signs of TBI.
Whenever the brain is damaged, it is possible that bleeding and swelling will cause additional damage. Immediate treatment can reduce the risk of additional complications.
Symptoms of traumatic brain injury
There are many symptoms associated with TBIs. Depending on the severity of the injury, a TBI patient might experience:
- Chronic fatigue
- Cognitive impairment
- Depression and anxiety
- Slurred speech
- Impaired motor skills
- Mood swings
- Vomiting and nausea
In extreme cases, your TBI leaves you unable to walk or tend to your own needs, requiring round-the-clock care. We consult with medical and vocational experts to ascertain the full extent of your injuries and your prognosis for the future, and we aggressively prosecute your case to achieve the best possible result. Our attorneys are determined to obtain sufficient compensation for you to address a lifetime of needs.
