Acquired Brain Injury, (ABI), is caused by damage to someone’s brain caused by near drowning, degenerative diseases, toxins, anoxia, tumors, strokes, and/or other kinds of conditions which are not always caused by external forces.

Anoxia

Anoxic Brain Injuries occur when someone’s brain is without any oxygen at all. All cells in the human brain need sufficient oxygen to function and survive.

Different Kinds of Anoxic Injuries to the Brain

  • Anoxic Anoxia- No oxygen supplied to the brain which causes injury.
  • Anemic Anoxia- The Brain gets injured when the blood carries too little oxygen
  • Toxic Anoxia- Brain injury from toxins or metabolites that block oxygen in the blood from getting into the tissue.

Hypoxic Injuries

Hypoxic Brain Injuries result when the brain doesn’t get enough oxygen while still receiving some.

Types of Hypoxic Brain Injury
  • Hypoxic Ischemic Brain Injury, also known as Ischemic Insult or Stagnant Hypoxia- Brain injuries happen due to a lack of blood flow to the tissue in the brain due to a critical reduction in the blood flow
Levels of Brain Injury Brain Injury
  • Mildly Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Mildly traumatic brain injuries occur after the symptoms are:
  • Any Lost consciousness is usually a few minutes or seconds or very briefly
  • Lost consciousness is not required for this level of injury—the person may be confused or dazed
  • Brain scans or testing may well seem normal
  • Mild traumatic brain injuries are diagnosed if and only if mental status changes when the injury happens. The person loses consciousness, or is confused or is dazed. These changes in mental status indicate that someone’s mental functioning has been changed. This is what is called a concussion.

Really mild brain injuries have their problems. They can be hard to diagnose and have effects beyond what the average person might think.

You need lawyers with that specific knowledge and experience. We bring that to the table in each and every one of our cases. Call us today to figure out how good a case you may have and what diagnosis and treatment help we can offer.

  • Moderately Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Most injuries to the brain happen because of minor and moderate head injuries. These types of injuries generally result from a blow to someone’s head which does not penetrate the skull, and/or the head shaking violently. Actually, many individuals suffer from such injuries with no noticeable consequences. For many others, however, these types of injuries can result in disabling impairments which can be permanent.
  • Moderate traumatic brain injuries occur if and when:
  • The lost consciousness lasts anywhere from several minutes up to hours
  • Symptoms of confusion which last for weeks or at least days
  • Behavioral impairments, physical impairments, and/or cognitive impairments which are permanent or last for months.
  • Persons with these moderately traumatic brain injuries usually have a good recovery after treatment or do successfully learn to deal with their deficits or compensate.
