A brain injury, whether a mild brain injury or a catastrophic one, refers to any injury to the brain that results in impaired functionality. Brain injuries can be categorized into traumatic and non-traumatic injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), typically a brain injury results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body, which can cause a wide range of physical and psychological effects. Examples of incidents leading to a TBI include vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries, and violence. Repeated TBIs can result in more severe conditions like chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which has also been linked to the development of dementia later in life.
Non-Traumatic Brain Injury, on the other hand, does not involve external force. It can be caused by internal factors such as illnesses, conditions like stroke, infections, tumors, lack of oxygen, or exposure to toxins. Despite its non-violent nature, the effects can be just as severe and life-altering as those experienced in a traumatic brain injury.
Brain injuries are broadly divided into two types: open and closed.
Accidents caused by someone else’s negligence can often result in brain injuries, including car accidents, motorcycle wrecks, truck crashes, or motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists. Other types of negligence that can lead to a brain injury include:
Defective products like medical equipment, child car seats, or CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machines can result in irreversible damage within minutes.
Heart attacks and strokes restrict the brain’s oxygen supply, blocking or causing hemorrhage in cerebral blood vessels, leading to direct cell damage in those areas.
Open head injuries, resulting from negligence or wrongful acts causing brain damage or a brain hemorrhage (e.g., skull-penetrating accidents or skull fractures), could justify personal injury lawsuits.
Toxic exposure through contact with toxins or hazardous materials such as carbon monoxide, gas, lead, solvents, and pesticides can occur in workplaces, homes, or the environment.
Bacterial and viral infections can harm the brain. Examples are encephalitis and meningitis that result in inflammation of the brain, protective membranes covering the brain, and spinal cord. Failure to diagnose these conditions may be a valid medical malpractice claim.
Brain tumors put pressure on areas of the brain, damaging the tissue and the brain cells often causing major long-term issues.
During childbirth, brain injury risks include twisted or compressed umbilical cords, improperly positioned babies, babies too large for the birth canal, or improper use of birthing tools.
Traumatic brain injuries from traumatic accidents can profoundly impact TBI victims’ lives, causing long-lasting complications and permanent disabilities.
Victims of serious accidents who suffer traumatic brain injuries sometimes experience debilitating symptoms that impact them for the rest of their lives. In many cases, these symptoms do not manifest right away. In fact, it might take weeks, or even months, for them to materialize after an accident.
Common symptoms related to traumatic head injuries and other head trauma include:
If you exhibit any of these symptoms after a severe accident, you should seek medical care right away. If you go to an urgent care center or hospital emergency room, the provider can order the necessary tests to ascertain your medical condition and make an accurate diagnosis.
