Types and Causes of Head & Brain Injuries

Brain injuries occur when the brain impacts the inner wall of the skull. This can occur if the victim is shaken violently, which may happen if the victim is involved in a fall or a car accident, or if the victim is struck by an object. The types include:

  • Intracranial Bleeding: This is when the force of impact may be powerful enough to cause effects like swelling, bruising, and even bleeding inside the skull. These types of injuries to the brain can have devastating medical, emotional, and financial effects on the victim, who may lose the ability to live independently, further their career, or support their family.
  • Closed Head Injury: Capable of inflicting catastrophic damage. This type of head injury is more difficult to detect, they may go untreated for a longer period of time.
  • Penetrating Head Injury: Occurs when impact to the head cracks or fractures the skull. In a closed head injury, there is no obvious visible damage to the skull, which can lead to delayed diagnoses.

It is critical to seek urgent medical care after any sort of accident or head injury, even if the skull does not appear to be outwardly damaged.

Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

If you suspect that someone has suffered any type of brain injury, see a doctor immediately for evaluation. The warning signs of a brain injury can be delayed until the swelling in the brain has reached the point where the person notices symptoms – whether physical, mental or emotional.

Examples of these effects may include the following, depending on factors like where the injury is located and how severe the injury is:

  • Physical – Loss of balance, dizziness, headaches, nausea and vomiting, confusion, blurred vision, drowsiness
  • Mental – Periods of disorientation, poor judgment, poor concentration, memory loss
  • Emotional – Irritability, agitation, apathy, depression, aggressiveness, short temper, impatience, feelings of fear, sleep disturbances, appetite disturbances, general personality changes

Damage can be temporary or permanent and may include weakness, loss of sensation, loss of coordination, loss of intellectual capacity, and paralysis.

Brain injuries that have caused more subtle damage with “softer” symptoms are often more difficult to discover and diagnose because they involve mental and neurological changes that are not visible. However, this type of damage can still impair an individual’s ability to work, interact with others, and control bodily functions. We have represented the victims of multiple concussions, including professional athletes, and understand how to build cases around these types of subtle yet life-altering injuries.
