Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (commonly referred to as TBI) occurs due to an external force being applied to a person’s neck or skull. These injuries are divided into two categories, closed head injuries, and open head injuries.
Closed head injuries typically do not involve any visible injuries beyond bruising or lacerations on the neck or skull. The most common closed head injury is a concussion. Although the damage can’t be seen by the naked eye, these sorts of injuries regularly result in:
- Loss of memory
- Blurred vision
- Impaired cognitive ability
- Impaired physical function
If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms such as the ones above following an accident, call the brain injury attorneys at Ashley Law immediately to discuss your legal options.
Other types of Brain Injuries include the following:
Like every organ in the human body, the brain needs a constant oxygen flow to function properly. When that normal flow is disturbed or cut off, it starves brain cells of oxygen. Eventually, killing them and causing detrimental consequences that can cause lifelong disabilities or even death.
Unlike hypoxic brain injuries that cause a partial lack of oxygen to the brain, anoxic brain injuries cut off all sources of oxygen. Essentially starving the brain of the nutrients and life source it needs to survive. The complete lack of oxygen caused by anoxic brain injuries is more severe and can cause extensive, life-altering damage. This can happen in several different accidents, including swimming pool accidents, negligent medical professionals or treatment, and blunt force trauma in the event of a car, truck, or motorcycle accident.
Suppose you or someone you love has suffered an anoxic brain injury due to someone else’s reckless or negligent actions. In that case, the brain injury attorneys at Ashley Law can help. We are ready to guide you through this challenging time in your life.
A brain hematoma is a collection of blood outside the brain usually caused by severe head injuries. This accumulation of blood usually increases pressure on the brain, which can be life-threatening. Even a minor brain hematoma can make everyday life difficult because of the debilitating pain. At Ashely Law, our brain injury attorneys are ready to fight and protect you and your loved ones. We want to help you get the compensation you deserve. Our thorough investigation of what happened helps determine the parties who could be liable for this tragedy and put your interests first.
A concussion is often considered a mild brain injury. Still, it needs to be taken very seriously because ignoring a concussion can lead to more harm. The National Institute of Health reports that more than one million mild brain injuries are documented each year. Concussions are unfortunately often the result of the negligent or intentional actions of another person. If you or a loved one has suffered a concussion due to someone else’s wrongful behavior, contact the brain injury attorneys at Ashley Law today for assistance.
Like other parts of the body, the brain can bruise as a result of trauma or impact. In the brain, these bruises are called contusions. Brain contusions can range in severity from mild to very serious, and they can even be life-threatening. While severe head trauma can occur under various circumstances, it frequently occurs due to the intentional or negligent act of another. If you have experienced a contusion resulting from someone else’s negligence, call the brain injury attorneys at Ashely Law to discuss your legal options.
If you have been involved in an accident or other serious accident that resulted in a skull fracture, contact the brain injury attorneys at Ashley Law today for a free consultation. It is critical to seek immediate medical attention since skull fractures can also lead to severe brain injuries.
On the other hand, open head injuries involve the exposure of the dura (brain) matter. These injuries often cause severe complications, including coma or death:
Explaining the impact of a brain injury can be extremely difficult. Working with an experienced, aggressive, and knowledgeable brain injury attorney can often be the difference between a successful and limited recovery.

We will help the insurance adjuster, defense attorney, and jury understand just how this accident has affected your life or the life of your loved ones.
