The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) has determined that each year at least 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur. Many of these injuries involve young children. The CDCP further states that a traumatic brain injury is typically caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Traumatic brain injuries are a factor of 1/3 of all injury-related deaths in the country.
Brain injuries can result from different types of accidents, such as:
- Car Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Construction or Work-Related Accidents
- Falls from Heights
- Violent Assaults
Nearly half of people who suffer a traumatic brain injury have some type of disability one year after the injury which can impair their cognitive function, motor function, sensation, and emotion. Any of these long-lasting disabilities has a tremendous impact on the victim’s well-being and ability to participate in everyday activities.
Head injuries include those injuries which occur to the skull, scalp, and brain. Head injuries are classified as either closed or open, meaning that the injury could be a minor bump or a severe life-threatening gash. “Closed” head injuries involve injuries which do not fracture the skull, and instead involve movement of the brain within the skull. Penetrating or “open” head injuries occur when an object hits the head with such force that it breaks the skull. Open injuries are typically caused by car accidents or gunshots. Head injuries can range from mild (classified as a brief change in mental status or consciousness) to severe (an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury). This is quite a disparity in the severity of injuries, and this is why it is so important to contact an experienced head injury lawyer who knows the best way to attack your case and move forward. Each case is tried differently, and the injury caused due to the negligence of another (no matter how minor or severe) should be compensated.
Head injuries include:
- Skull fractures
- Lacerations to the scalp
- Traumatic subdural hematoma
- Cerebral contusion
- Shaken baby syndrome
- Traumatic extradural or epidural hematoma
Head injuries are typically caused by car accidents, pedestrian accidents, falls, and violent assaults. Children are especially prone to severe head injuries from falls or being struck by an object since their skull is still developing up to a certain age.
Legal Ramifications for Brain and Head Injuries
As a victim of a head or brain injury, you deserve either your day in court or a brain injury settlement. You should not have to suffer through life with the lasting repercussions of an accident which was not your fault. A brain injury settlement amount will typically include expenses for medical treatment, injuries, lost wages, future wages, pain and suffering, any long-term care, and emotional damages. People need to recognize that head and brain injuries caused by accidents can lead to life-threatening conditions, even death, and should be punished for their negligence in causing the accident.
