Your brain is a critical part of your body. It controls your thoughts, memory, emotion, motor skills, vision, breathing, temperature, and hunger. The brain is involved in every process that regulates the body. Given the importance of the human brain, an injury to the brain can have life-altering consequences.

The gravity of a brain injury warrants a top-rated personal injury attorney on your side.

Understanding Brain Injuries

Brain injuries may be the result of:

  • Car accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Falls
  • Impact
  • Sporting accidents
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Violent shaking of the head
  • Slip and fall accidents

Of course, this list is not exhaustive. All substantial accidents have the possibility of causing a victim to suffer a brain injury.

Types of Injuries to the Brain

The causes of brain injuries are classified as traumatic (TBI) or non-traumatic. Traumatic brain injuries and their consequences require extensive medical treatment. The treatment required, and the recovery possible, depends on the underlying injury itself.

Common injuries to the brain include:

  • Diffuse Axonal Injury
  • Contusion
  • Concussion
  • Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Second impact syndrome
  • Closed Head injury
  • Open Head Injury

This list is only a preview of the many different brain injuries that accident victims can suffer.

Severity of Brain Injuries

Brain injury victims consistently necessitate significant medical care. For example, a severe brain injury may cause the injured victim to become unconscious. Depending on the facts and medical history of the injured party, the individual may remain in a coma, emerge from the coma, or experience an increased level of consciousness. Brain injury victims may also go into a vegetative state if there is brain death.

Depending on the severity of the underlying injury, the injured victim may need occupational, speech, and neuropsychological therapies for an extended period. Suffice it to say, all of this medical care and future treatment is expensive. As your family struggles to adjust to this new life, the last thing on your mind should be paying your medical bills. A successful TBI case may offer you and your family some respite.

An injured victim is entitled to both economic and non-economic damages. This means, under Virginia law, the brain injury victim can recover prior and future medical expenses, and receive compensation for the tragic pain and suffering the brain they have endured.
