Brain Injuries

The are two types of  brain injuries:

1) Blunt Force - this type of head and brain injury is called a traumatic brain injury.  These types of brain injuries occur often in auto accidents and car wrecks as well as construction accidents, workplace accidents and other impacting collision type losses.

2) Lack of Oxygen - this type of brain injury is called an anoxic brain injury.  These types of brain injuries can cause paralysis, unconsciousness and even death.  We have seen these types of brain injuries in underwater diving accidents, industrial accidents, petroleum accidents and medical malpractice cases.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic Brain Injuries are caused by sudden acceleration and/or deceleration of the brain. This type of brain injury will occur when an individuals' skull comes in contact with a hard surface or a hard object. The impact of the persons brain with the skull will cause a tearing of the nerves, bruising of the brain tissue, brain stem injuries, fluid and swelling on the brain. When swelling occurs, it is the human body's attempt to heal the damage tissue, but this swelling of the damaged brain tissue can often cause serious problems and complications that can lead to one's death.  Wherein the brain cavity is not capable to handle to swelling, the brain has nowhere to swell, resulting in intense pressure. Severe swelling of the brain as a result of a brain injury can cause further damage to the brain.  This damage further destroys memory, motor function and our the ability of ones' body to continue.  Traumatic Brain Injuries are often seen after severe auto accidents, motorcycle accidents or crashes, and sporting injuries.

Anoxic Brain Injuries

One suffers an Anoxic Brain Injury when the supply of oxygen is cut off to the brain. This often occurs in medical mistakes, industrial accidents, swimming pool accidents and underwater diving accidents as well as in surgery complications.  This type of injury can also occur in other accidents where the supply of oxygen is cut off or limited or reduced to a point of causing brain damage.

Common resulting medical and physical conditions that can result after Brain Injuries:
  • Moderate to Severe Paralysis
  • The loss of voluntary or involuntary motor functions
