Understanding Brain Injuries
Severe brain injuries can be life-altering. Also referred to as TBI, a traumatic brain injury can cause long-term health issues and even death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 1.7 million TBIs happen in the United States each year and account for one-third of all injury-related deaths. Such injuries may occur as a result of on-the-job injuries, slip and fall incidents, and motor vehicle accidents. Some common brain injuries are:
- Concussion – trauma caused by a blow to the head, violent, sudden displacement of the head or other forceful impact
- Contusion – related to a concussion, this refers to the swelling or internal bleeding that can occur as the result of head trauma
- Penetration – an injury cause by an object puncturing or completely entering the skull
Brain injuries may cause epilepsy and put an individual at increased risk for developing brain diseases such as dementia. Such injuries may cause short or long-term impact to senses, memory, speech, and emotions. Because the impact of TBIs can be far-reaching, it is important to have a knowledgeable attorney who understands how to present an effective case. There are so many ways that a brain injury can occur, but there is one way to handle a brain injury claim – aggressively. For many years, Attorney Ross J.
