Symptoms Of Traumatic Brain Injuries:
The brain is the most complex and vital organ in your body. A traumatic brain injury is an injury that causes some sort of damage to that sensitive organ. These types of injuries can lead to wide-ranging and serious physical and mental conditions, including:
- Memory loss
- Loss of cognitive ability
- Loss of function
Doctors can assess traumatic brain injuries in 3 classes of severity ranging from “Mild Traumatic Brain Injury,” the most minor brain injuries, up to “Severe Brain Injury” which includes the most serious conditions. Additionally, there are two major mechanisms of brain injury:
- Closed brain injury: These injuries involve force applied to the head that causes the brain to impact the skull’s interior.
- Open brain injury: These injuries involve either penetration or other wounds that cause fractures in the skull, breaking the skin and direct damage to the brain.
No matter the mechanism of the injury, the victim may suffer life-long consequences from the injury and require extensive treatment. If you or your loved one’s injury resulted from another person’s negligent or willful action, you might have the ability to pursue them for compensation. That’s why we want to hear from you.
