Severity and Types of TBIs

Traumatic brain injuries are usually the result of trauma to the head that is sudden; this can include a blow or jolt, or the penetration of the skull by an object.

Traumatic brain injury, in every case, can disrupt a brain function referred to as normal. A victim suffering from traumatic brain injury usually have hit his or her head against a solid object, or an object which can penetrate the skull into one’s brain.

While some indications of a brain injury are quite obvious, any case that involves a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury can result in conspicuous problems that last in the duration of days or weeks.

Every TBI, or traumatic brain injury, is unique. The severity and types of TBI’s are normally indicative of the impact of force that affects the head. Every traumatic brain injury will result in damage to one single functional brain area, or a number of areas, or the whole brain.

Traumatic Brain Injury Caused by Concussion

Even a concussion that is mild is able to develop into a critical healthcare condition due to major lifelong impairments or challenges.

Whiplash and various traumatic experiences can result in major head injury.

Physicians, often times, can be negligent in their capacity to prescribe rehabilitation subsequent to the patient suffering a concussion.

Concussions can be the result of a host of factors, such as the following: whiplash force; a direct blow to the head; a gunshot wound; and violent head shaking.

Injuries that are open-head and closed-head have the ability to cause a concussion, which is the most usual type of traumatic brain injury.

An impact, often times, can cause pressure that will enable brain blood vessels, while cranial nerves are damaged, to stretch.

In several incidents and accidents, the victim receiving a concussion may not lose consciousness, but by the impact, become often dazed.

Many physicians may diagnose concussions incorrectly because the healthcare condition does not always reveal itself on a CT scan, or other tests for diagnostic imaging.

There may not be brain bleeding, skull fracture, or swelling present at the impact site.

Blood clots, however, can form easily in the brain to result in a fatal outcome or stroke. In a number of severity and types of TBI‘s, for complete healing of the concussion, it may take months to years.

The indications and symptoms that involve physical changes are likely to include a loss of stamina, alteration in appetite, chronic pain, body temperature regulation, physical paralysis or spasticity, menstrual difficulties, and loss of bowel or bladder control.

They may even experience changes, in addition, in social emotional behavior, which may include aggression, a lack of motivation, depression, disinhibition, denial or lack of awareness, and unstable emotions.

Attorneys have prosecuted successfully brain injury cases on behalf of those who have been injured severely in accidents.

In addition to the skills and experience with litigation in these severity and types of TBI‘s cases, attorneys have relationships with several of the most esteemed experts in the field of emergency medicine, neuropsychology, and neurology.
