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 is important to seek medical help immediately. 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 traumatic brain injuries, most notably the ones listed below:

  • Hematomas Ranging from minor to severe, hematomas are one of the more common types of brain injuries. The main types include intracranial, epidural, and subdural hematomas.
  • Hemorrhaging Hemorrhagic strokes, according to the American Stroke Association, happen if a blood vessle ruptures. This may lead to decreased mobility, speaking difficulties, nausea or vomiting, and other symptoms.
  • Skull Fractures There’s a few 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 blurred vision, trouble speaking, poor comprehension, numbness, and others.
  • Diffuse Axonal Injuries Diffuse axonal injuries are usually caused by rapid movement (car accidents) or falls. Victims may require physical therapy, conseling, adaptive equipment, and occupational therapy, and other aids due to these serious injuries.

Whether you or a family member suffers from head trauma in a motorcycle accident or on a football field, it’s crucial to reach out to our Herrin, 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?

Herrin, IL, Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys

There are a number of required things you’ll need to prove if you’ve been in an accident and have a traumatic brain injury. There are 4 basic elements of negligence to determine if you have a valid claim due to someone’s negligence:

  1. Duty of Care: There’s a standard of responsibility in society. For example, you’re supposed to follow traffic laws and stop at red lights.
  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 a car accident, for example, and suffer a traumatic brain injury, it’s important to prove that a negligent party caused the accident.
  4. Damages: The concept behind compensation or punitive damages hinges on the fact that you’ve been affected financially. 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, and it’s our job as Herrin, IL, traumatic brain injury lawyers to help victims and their families gather all of the required information in order to be fairly reimbursed.
