Traumatic Brain Injury| Overview
Brain injuries, otherwise known as traumatic brain injuries (TBI), usually occur when there is trauma to the head caused by a car accident, motorcycle crash, bicycle accident, slip-and-fall, or a recreational activity. A brain injury can result in internal bleeding inside the brain or high shearing forces that damage the nerve cells of the brain. Brain infections caused by blunt trauma can also result in brain injury. Symptoms of traumatic brain injury may include headache, nausea, confusion, change in personality, severe vision problems, memory loss, and behavioral changes. The exact nature of the injury impairment depends on the severity of the injury and the part of the brain affected.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that TBI is a major cause of death and disability in the U.S. contributing to about 30% of all injury deaths. In 2010, there were about 2.5 million emergency department visits associated with TBI. The leading cause of a TBI is a fall. Most falls occur as a result of another person’s or business’s negligence.
Traumatic Brain Injury | Liability
As mentioned above, the negligent acts of another may result in your TBI. You may be able to file a personal injury claim against the negligent person or business to recover damages for your loss. There are several legal elements that will have to be proven in order to be awarded damages. You should hire a highly skilled personal injury attorney who has experience in handling brain injury cases. Insurance companies will stop at nothing to undermine your claim. You need an attorney by your side who is a skilled negotiator, fact finder, and litigator.
