Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Any injury that damages the brain is a TBI. You can develop a TBI after experiencing an open head injury, which occurs when an object penetrates the skull and damages the brain tissue.

In most cases, TBIs fall under the closed head injury category.

Closed head injuries often involve blunt force trauma to the skull. For example, if you are in a car accident and hit your head against the windshield, the force can bruise your brain and you can develop a TBI. You can also develop a TBI after experiencing excessive force that shakes your brain, such as whiplash.

TBI Complications and Damages

While it is possible to recover from a TBI, the chances for a full recovery decrease based on the severity of the injury. Even mild TBIs require immediate treatment and may result in symptoms that last for weeks or months following the accident. In severe TBI cases, you may lose the ability to perform certain tasks and require rehabilitation, home or vehicle modifications, live-in care, and other accommodations to function. These services can be very expensive, and if your injury prevents you from returning to work, it can be very difficult to pay for your treatment on your own.

If you sustain a TBI after an accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation to pay for your medical care, lost wages, and other damages, such as property damage or pain and suffering. However, you will need to prove that someone else’s actions caused the accident that resulted in your TBI, or that you sustained the injury while performing your work-related duties.

For example, if you are in a collision with a drunk driver and sustain a TBI, you may be eligible to file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver. If you are working on a construction site and fall off scaffolding, you may be eligible for workers compensation, including disability benefits. Speak to an attorney at Colburn Law to determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit.
