What Is a Brain Injury?

As defined by the Brain Injury Association of America, a brain injury is a "blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain." The severity of these injuries ranges from mild − with symptoms lasting only a brief amount of time − to severe − resulting in permanent effects.

Workers' compensation lawyers at our firm have successfully handled cases involving all types of brain injury, including:

  • Concussion: head injury resulting in a short-term loss of consciousness with little or no lasting impairment
  • Closed head injury: occurring when a head smashes into an object
  • Penetrating head injury: occurring when an object pierces the skull and ruptures the brain tissue
  • Anoxic brain injury: oxygen is cut off from the brain, causing permanent brain damage
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): the most catastrophic type of brain injury, including bruised brain tissue, torn nerve tissue, brain stem trauma and edema

Victims' Lives Are Seriously Impacted

Brain function is vital to quality of life. After a serious brain injury, particularly in those causing permanent brain damage, victims may experience symptoms including:

  • Sleep problems
  • Vertigo
  • Loss of motor skills
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of hearing or speaking ability
  • Coma

These symptoms not only change the life of the person suffering a brain injury, but greatly impact the lives of their loved ones, as well. Each family member is forced to adapt to the loss of their mother, father, son, or daughter as they once were.

We also provide clients information on the many causes of brain injuries that occur in a workplace setting.
