Five Types of Brain Injuries Caused by Accidents

1.  Concussion

A concussion is a mild form of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Even though it is considered “mild,” a concussion can cause long-term complications and conditions. Most concussions are caused by a severe blow to the head or by the head hitting another object. However, whiplash and other motions that cause the head to whip or twist violently can result in a concussion.

2.  Closed Head Injury

A closed head injury occurs when the brain is injured because of a blow to the head. A closed head injury can also occur if the head is violently shaken or whipped about, causing the brain to strike the skull in one or more places. Concussions are the most common type of closed head injury. However, more severe injuries are also possible, including brain bleeding and brain swelling.

3.  Penetrating Brain Injury

A penetrating brain injury occurs when an object fractures the skull and enters the brain tissue. Open head injuries have a higher risk of fatal and life-threatening conditions, such as infections, uncontrollable bleeding, limited oxygen supply, and severe damage to brain tissue.

4.  Diffuse Axonal Brain Injury

This type of injury is caused when the brain shakes because of sudden movement, much like a concussion, but more severe. Large tears in the brain can be deadly. However, even small tears can result in severe conditions. A diffuse axonal brain injury can impact several areas of the brain.

5.  Hypoxic Brain Injury

Hypoxic brain injuries are caused by limited oxygen supply to the brain. The brain receives some oxygen, but not enough oxygen for normal functions. The lack of oxygen causes brain damage. Hypoxic brain injury results from a lack of oxygen in the lungs, which can be the result of one or more accidental injuries.

Symptoms of Brain Injuries

Everyone should be familiar with the symptoms of brain injuries. The Mayo ClinicCDC, and National Institutes of Health have lists of the symptoms of brain injuries. If you experience any of these symptoms or unexplained symptoms, see a doctor immediately.

Brain Injuries and Accident Claims

The severity of the brain injury directly impacts the value of a personal injury claim. A person suffering from a brain injury can incur substantial financial losses, including medical expenses, personal care, and loss of income. Some individuals may sustain permanent impairments and disabilities, which may result in future loss of income and ongoing and medical and personal care.

Additionally, a brain injury victim sustains physical and emotional pain and suffering. Their quality of life and enjoyment of life may be substantially diminished.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
