Brain Injury

What types of brain injuries are there?

A brain injury is a common type of injury resulting from car accidents, falls, and physical assaults. There are several types of brain injuries including concussions, brain hemorrhage, and cerebral edema. A concussion occurs when the brain is injured from a blow that causes it to move around rapidly, a cerebral hemorrhage is uncontrolled bleeding in the brain, and a cerebral edema is swelling in the brain. Each of these injuries is serious and can lead to permanent damage.

What is a traumatic brain injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is damage to the tissue in the brain from an outside force. The leading cause of TBI are car accidents, falls, criminal assaults, and sports and recreational activities. While TBIs are often the result of a violent blow to the head, they can also occur without any outward physical evidence of head trauma. For example, whiplash in the car accident can cause a TBI.

How much compensation will I get for a brain injury?

When a brain injury is called by the negligence of another person or entity, the victim can demand compensation. Because brain injuries are serious, often requiring hospitalization, extended recovery time, and permanent damage, compensation can be substantial. The amount of compensation depends on the severity of the brain injury and is based on the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
