What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of head injury. It occurs when there’s a bump or blow to the head. The impact is significant enough to disrupt normal brain activity – even just for a few seconds.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

There are two types of TBIs: penetrating and non-penetrating.

  • Penetrating TBI means an object entered the skull and penetrated the brain. This could occur during a fall, car crash, or other serious accident.
  • Non-penetrating TBI means that nothing penetrated the skull. This may occur if there’s a severe blow or jolt to the head e.g. after a motorcycle crash.

TBI Symptoms

TBIs can be mild, moderate, or severe. You do not need to hit your head hard to develop a brain injury.

The symptoms may only last a day or two, or they could signal permanent brain damage. Signs of TBIs include:

  • Headache
  • Seizure
  • Confusion
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Weakness
  • Double vision
  • Poor concentration
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of motor control

All suspected head injuries must be evaluated by a doctor.

Traumatic Brain Injury Causes

Any accident involving head trauma can cause a TBI. The most common causes of TBIs include:

  • Sudden stopping e.g. in a car accident
  • Airbag deployment during a crash
  • Falls from a height
  • Penetrating wound e.g. accident at work

Any incident, however minor, could result in mild traumatic brain injury. Always seek medical advice if you hit your head after an accident.

Making a TBI Lawsuit

To make a TBI claim, you must prove that:

  • Someone else owed you a duty of care e.g. another driver.
  • This person behaved negligently or recklessly.
  • Due to their negligence, you suffered a head injury.

Proving a TBI lawsuit means you can claim damages for losses such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earning capacity (if you’re now permanently disabled)
  • Long-term care and rehab costs
  • Associated expenses
  • Pain and suffering

The more evidence you have, the better. Are you unsure whether you have enough evidence to make a claim? Our traumatic brain injury lawyers in New York can help. From Manhattan to New Jersey, our traumatic brain injury lawyers are here for you.
