Common Types of Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injury cases can start with several causes:

  • Medical treatment errors causing damage from lack of oxygen, resulting in cerebral palsy
  • A violent motor vehicle collision
  • Equipment falling on a construction site
  • A person falling on a slippery surface and hitting their head

Medical experts like The Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins Medicine describe several types of traumatic brain injuries:

  • Closed Injuries: This is the most common type of brain injury, in which a blow to the head or sharp jarring movement leaves internal injuries from the brain getting shaken inside the skull.
  • Open Injuries: These occur when an outside object penetrates the skull and injuries the brain.
  • Anoxia: This is an injury from lack of oxygen to the brain, caused by emergencies like choking or near drowning.

Brain injuries can have many life-altering effects, including confusion, memory loss, fatigue, headaches, loss of balance, coma, paralysis, tremors, weakness, vision loss, hearing loss, difficulty speaking, difficulty reading, struggles with social situations, mental health conditions and more.

If your injury resulted from someone failing to take appropriate care for your safety, you may be able to obtain compensation for these impacts on your life.

What Kinds of Compensation Can a Head Injury Lawyer Secure for You?

A traumatic brain injury personal injury claim seeks compensation to help you and your family navigate this life-changing event. The compensation you may be able to recover is called “compensatory damages.”

In Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, you can claim two types of compensatory damages:

  • Special Damages: These include items that you can tally into specific dollar amounts for your losses, such as medical bills and lost wages.
  • General Damages: These include losses that have a cost, but the cost can’t be precisely measured. General damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish, long-term disfigurement, reduced enjoyment of life, and in some cases loss of companionship for close family members of the injured person.

Your first step may be negotiating with an insurance company.

Your personal injury lawyer will know what the insurance company is legally required to provide and whether the company is giving you a fair offer.

If you can’t work out what you need by negotiation, your next step may be filing a lawsuit.

In the court system, an experienced personal injury attorney makes sure your rights, interests and future are protected.
