What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

In personal injury lawsuits, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is classified as a type of catastrophic injury resulting from blows or jolts to the head. This is a serious injury that can lead to a range of complications, including internal bleeding, bruising, and torn tissue. Even mild TBI can result in life-changing consequences for victims, making it all the more critical to consult with a TBI lawyer who can advocate for the compensation you deserve. 

There are various types of brain injuries, including (but not limited to): 

  • Concussions: Often caused by a sudden blow or jolt to the head, concussions can result in headaches, confusion, and loss of memory.
  • Contusions: This type of injury is a bruise on the brain caused by an impact to the head, which can lead to swelling and bleeding.
  • Coup-contrecoup injury: This happens when a forceful blow causes the brain to hit the opposite side of the skull, leading to injuries at the impact site and on the opposite side.
  • Diffuse axonal injury (DAI): This is caused by strong rotation or shaking of the head, as seen in car accidents, causing the brain to tear from the skull.
  • Penetrating injury: This occurs when an object penetrates the skull and damages the brain.
  • Anoxic brain injury: This is characterized by a lack of oxygen to the brain, potentially causing severe damage and disability. 

Remember, if you or a loved one has suffered any type of brain injury due to someone else's negligence, our brain injury attorneys can pursue justice and allow you to focus on healing. 

What Causes Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)? 

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can result from a variety of incidents, many of which can be attributed to someone else's negligence. Common causes of brain injuries include: 

  • Slip-and-fall accidents: Slip-and-fall accidents are one of the most common causes of TBIs. These can happen anywhere, from a person's home due to inadequate maintenance to public spaces with unsafe conditions.
  • Motor vehicle accidents: High-speed collisions often result in severe TBIs. Whiplash can cause the brain to move inside the skull, causing bruising and bleeding.
  • Workplace accidents: These could include falls from height, being struck by falling objects, or industrial accidents, particularly in high-risk industries like construction.
  • Sports injuries: Contact sports, such as football, rugby, and boxing, can often result in TBIs due to the high-impact nature of these activities.
  • Assault: Physical violence, including blows to the head or violent shaking, can cause TBIs.
  • Medical malpractice: TBIs can occur as a result of surgical errors or other medical negligence.
