Brain Injury Cases We Handle
We represent clients with brain injuries caused by all kinds of accidents. These injuries include:
- Concussions: Brain injuries caused by the interior of the skull
- Acquired brain injuries (ABI): They are caused by toxic exposure, infections or traumatic injuries to the brain which may cause strokes, internal bleeding or lack of oxygen
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
Brain injuries are often caused by traumatic accidents:
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Vehicle collisions with pedestrians and bicyclists
- Workplace accidents
- Oilfield accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Slips and falls
- Cases of neglect
When it comes to brain injuries, these aren’t “cookie-cutter” cases. Each case has its own contributing factors, causes, and level of injury. The harm suffered, the circumstances leading up to it, and the negligence that caused it are all unique. We focus our attention on individual clients, their cases, and the outcomes they need to see.
Brain Injury Symptoms and Terms
You may suffer TBI symptoms right after the accident or it may take time for them to present.
The symptoms of moderate to severe TBI include:
- Being unconscious for several minutes to hours
- Persistent headache or one that gets worse
- Vomiting or nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
- One or both pupils of the eyes are dilated
- Clear fluids draining from the nose or ears
- Inability to wake up after sleeping
- Weakness or numbness in fingers and toes
- Lost coordination
- Profound confusion
- Agitation or combativeness
- Slurred speech
If you suffered a serious brain injury, here are terms you should understand:
- Skull fracture: Any break in the cranial bone, or skull, caused by an impact or a blow to the head that’s strong enough to break the bone
- Post-concussion syndrome: A medical problem lasting after a head injury, possibly weeks to months. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, sleep disruption, psychological impacts (depression, irritability, anxiety) and cognitive issues involving memory, concentration, and thinking
- Brain bleeding or hemorrhage: A type of stroke caused by an artery in the brain bursting and causing localized bleeding, killing brain cells
- Brain swelling: Swelling, or edema, is a natural result of trauma. If the brain swells too much it can cause serious injuries or death because there’s little room for it within the skull.
- Brain damage: An injury causing the destruction or deterioration of brain cells. A severe brain injury may cause life-altering problems and permanent disabilities
