Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries typically occur when there is some trauma to the head, such as in:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Violent attacks

Common Types of Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries include the following:

  • Concussion – A concussion is usually defined as a transient change in mental state, but multiple concussions can result in chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which can cause severe brain dysfunction.
  • Contusion – A brain contusion can impair a wide range of brain functions and increase intracranial pressure.
  • Hemorrhage – A brain hemorrhage is active and ongoing bleeding in the brain.
  • Hematoma – A brain hematoma is a collection of blood in the brain.
  • Edema – A brain edema is swelling caused by too much fluid in the brain.
  • Diffuse axonal injury – These injuries cause tears in the nerve fiber pathways of the brain.
  • Hypoxic brain injury – A hypoxic brain injury is a loss of oxygen that can result in loss of consciousness and brain damage.
  • Skull fracture – A skull fracture is a break of the bone that surrounds the brain. Closed-head and penetrating injuries can result in a skull fracture.

If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury, seek immediate medical treatment to receive an accurate diagnosis and begin receiving treatment.

Potential Compensation Recoverable in a Brain Injury Case

The financial cost of a brain injury can be significant, but you may be able to pursue compensation through a brain injury claim to help cover your losses, such as:

  • Medical expenses – Traumatic brain injuries can be expensive to diagnose and treat. You may be able to recover compensation for emergency treatment and transportation, hospital stays, surgical costs, specialist visits, medication, physical, occupational, and speech therapy, and long-term care services.
  • Lost income – You may be able to recover money for your lost wages, commissions, bonuses, and fringe benefits.
  • Reduced earning capacity – If the brain injury resulted in permanent injury that prevents you from returning to the same line of work, you could pursue compensation for your reduced earning potential.
  • Property damage – You may be able to recover compensation to repair or replace your damaged personal property.
  • Pain and suffering – Brain injuries can result in significant physical pain and suffering. They can also cause substantial emotional distress and mental anguish, for which you can be compensated.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life – Sustaining a brain injury can affect your cognition, mobility, personality, and relationship with others.
