Common Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

If you suffered head trauma from a car accident, were in a sports injury, or have TBI from some other incident, it’s important to get medical help as soon as possible. If you’re going to pursue compensation, it’s important to have those medical records even if the injury seems minor. There are various types of TBIs, most notably the ones listed below:

  • Hematomas Hematomas are one of the most common types of brain injuries and can range from minor to severe. The main types include intracranial, epidural, and subdural hematomas.
  • Hemorrhaging Hemorrhagic strokes, according to the ASA, occur when a blood vessle ruptures. These may lead to decreased mobility, speaking difficulties, nausea or vomiting, and other symptoms.
  • Skull Fractures There are a couple of different types of skull fractures: minor, linear, depressed, and basilar. These can lead to a number of brain injuries and other medical conditions.
  • Ischemic Stroke More common than hemorrhagic strokes, ischemic strokes can cause serious cellular-level brain damage. Symptoms can include numbness, loss of vision, confusion, slurred speech, and headaches, and others.
  • Diffuse Axonal Injuries Diffuse axonal injuries are typically caused by rapid movement (car accidents) or falls. Victims may require occupational and physical therapy, emotional counseling, special equipment, and other aids due to these serious injuries.

Whether you suffer from head trauma in a car accident or on a football field, it’s essential to contact the Dixon Injury Firm’s Fairfield, IL, TBI lawyers. We will take your case to trial if necessary and help you recover damages.

Do You Have a Traumatic Brain Injury Claim?

Fairfield, IL, Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys

If you’ve been in an accident and have a TBI, there are still a few things you would have to prove to win a claim. There are 4 basic elements of negligence to determine whether or not you have a valid claim due to another party’s negligence:

  1. Duty of Care: There’s a standard of responsibility in society. For example, you’re supposed to yield at yield signs and obey other traffic laws.
  2. Breach: A breach is when a third party fails to show duty of care. You can look at breach as a “failure to act,” like not stopping at a stop sign.
  3. Causation: It’s important to prove that a person’s breach of duty of care actually caused you harm. If you’re in an accident, for instance, and suffer a traumatic brain injury, it’s important to prove that a negligent party caused the accident.
  4. Damages: To get reimbursement, you’re going to have to prove that you were financially harmed. This includes hospital bills, the inability to work, ongoing rehab, pain and suffering, and other special and general damages.

There’s a lot that goes into every claim or case, and it’s our job as Fairfield, IL, traumatic brain injury lawyers to help victims and their families gather all of the required information in order to be fairly reimbursed.
