Traumatic Brain Injuries

Woodstock Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Types of Catastrophic Brain Injuries

A common occurrence in personal injury accidents is that a victim's head will have sustained trauma. Depending on the type of accident, those injuries could range from mild to catastrophic.

When people use the term "head injury" they are likely talking about a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. These two terms are near synonymous. The only difference is that a head injury can refer to external damage as well, while a TBI deals specifically with the brain. The brain is such a vital component to the human body that many people who sustain brain injuries cannot recover.

While head injuries of this nature can happen in almost any accident, the following are some of the most common:

  • Motor Vehicle Collisions: Passengers in vehicles do not have their heads secured by anything. Although there are airbags and seatbelts, the head is left on its own and may become violently jerked or hit a part of the vehicle in a collision, causing a brain injury.
  • Work-Related Accidents: Those who work in physically demanding fields such as construction are at high risk for TBI. Although the job is dangerous, head injuries are never excusable. If you were injured in this way at work, you may be entitled to a claim.
  • Sports Injuries: Athletes are another group of people who are seriously at risk for sustaining brain trauma. Sports like football, rugby, baseball and more all put players at risk for head injuries. Injured athletes may be entitled to personal injury claims.
