Brain injuries, whether mild or severe, can have serious implications and hardships on an individual’s life. There are two types of brain injuries: traumatic brain injury and acquired brain injury.

Traumatic brain injury occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain and can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, when the head is violently shaken or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue.

The skull itself can often withstand a forceful external impact without fracturing but the blow can cause severe injury to the brain. Motor vehicle accidents, physical violence, bicycle accidents, sporting accidents or any strong blow to the skull can all cause a brain injury and it is not uncommon for it to be a cause of a negligent act inflicted upon someone else.

Symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe, but regardless of the symptoms, brain injuries can be life threatening and therefore require immediate medical attention. Some symptoms can be unconsciousness, headache, confusion, lightheadedness, dizziness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue, mood changes, trouble with memory, concentration, attention or thinking.

Someone with moderate or severe brain injury can show these symptoms but could have severe headaches that get worse, repeated vomiting or nausea, convulsions or seizures, an inability to awaken from sleep, dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes, slurred speech, weakness or numbness, increased confusion and restlessness.

Acquired brain injuries occurs at the cellular level of the brain and happens when the brain doesn’t receive any or enough oxygen. Severe airway obstruction, near-drowning accidents, choking or strangulation, accidents involving electrical shock, severe distress to the head, vascular disruption, heart attack, infectious diseases, brain tumors, metabolic disorders, meningitis, exposure to specific toxic agents and heavy drug use can all cause acquired brain injuries.

According to statistics, as many as 30,000 people a year fall victim to a brain injury that requires hospitalization in California.

And because most of these accidents occur after falling in a home or in motor vehicle accidents, the likelihood of it being due to another person’s negligence is high so make sure to contact an attorney who can help you get compensated the way you deserve to.
