Types of Head Injuries and Their Causes
Some of the most catastrophic injuries that a person can suffer in an accident are head injuries. When the brain is seriously injured, the damage can spread through the rest of the body, as well. Minor head injuries can result in cuts and lacerations, or perhaps a minor concussion that causes dizziness and nausea, but no memory loss or extended unconsciousness. Traumatic brain injury (TBI), however, can result in permanent brain damage, memory loss, or a coma. Most cases of TBI are the result of serious head trauma, such as a severe blow to the head or a punctured skull. Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, gunshot wounds, and many other such injuries can cause brain trauma that turns the victim’s life upside down.
Filing a Personal Injury Claim
When an accident victim sustains a TBI, they could suffer from amnesia or even fall into a vegetative state. No matter how severe the head injury may be, the medical treatment required for such injuries is always expensive. You or your loved one should never have to pay for these expenses out of pocket when the accident was someone else’s fault. You should retain a Phoenix personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to help you file a claim for personal injury to cover the cost of treatment.
