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.

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
