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 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 traumatic brain injuries, namely 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 American Stroke Association, occur if a blood vessle ruptures. These 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 range of brain injuries and medical conditions.
  • Ischemic Stroke More common than hemorrhagic strokes, ischemic strokes can cause serious cellular-level brain damage. Symptoms may 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 or a family member suffers from head trauma in a car accident or on a football field, it is important to contact the Dixon Injury Firm’s Madison County, 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?

Madison County, 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 four basic elements of negligence to determine if 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 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 medical expenses, lost time from work, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and other damages.

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