Head Injuries

A head injury is caused by direct or indirect trauma to the skull or brain. Often a head injury can lead to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and the effects can be devastating and long lasting. It is estimated that someone becomes permanently disabled from a head injury every 5 minutes in the United States.

In many cases an injury can debilitate an individual for the rest of their life leaving a legacy of financial hardship. In many cases brain injury is immediately apparent but damage to the brain does not always develop at the time of an accident. An injury can develop over time as brain tissues swell and bleed within the head. Many brain injuries are the consequence of bruising, bleeding, twisting and tearing of brain tissue, which can result in the following brain injuries:

  • brain contusions- bruising of the brain 
  • concussions- shaking of the brain
  • anoxic brain injury- disrupts flow of blood to brain
  • skull fracture- break of bone surrounding brain
  • contrecoup- brain strikes both sides of skull
  • diffuse axonal injury- brain rotates which severs long connective nerve fibers
  • epidural hematoma- blood clot between skull and brain
  • subdural hematoma- blood clot between brain tissue and the dura

Of the estimated 2 million traumatic brain injuries that occur each year in the United States many are the result of negligence or personal assault, and are eligible for financial compensation from the responsible party. A severe head injury can often cost an individual over $4 million dollars.
