While any personal injury case comes with uncertainty and many questions, incidents involving traumatic brain injury can pose even more complications for victims and their families. We understand that having answers available to your most frequently asked questions is reassuring, which is why the Ashley Injury Lawyers are here to share insights to help you along the way. Read on for answers to the most common questions surrounding traumatic brain injury.
What is considered a traumatic brain injury?
There are two categories of traumatic brain injury, including open head injuries (which often result in coma or death) and closed head injuries. Both are the result of an external force being applied to someone’s neck or skull. A concussion is the most commonly recognized injury, though other types include anoxic events, brain hematomas, contusions, and skull fractures.
What are the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury?
Typically, visible symptoms aside from bruising or lacerations are non-existent in closed head injuries. Instead, a concussion is regularly the most common result, leading to implications that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
What damage can be done as a result of a concussion?
As with many injuries, the repercussions following a head injury may depend on many factors, including the severity of trauma to the head. Most commonly, these types of injuries will result in one or several of the following: confusion, loss of memory, headaches, nausea, blurred vision, dizziness, impaired cognitive ability, and impaired physical function.
How would I become a victim of a traumatic brain injury?
Traumatic brain injuries can happen in many ways and to virtually anyone – primarily when caused by the reckless actions of another person. The Ashley Injury Lawyers handle traumatic brain injury cases resulting from auto, pedestrian, bicycle, or slip and fall accidents.
