What actually is a brain injury?

Generally speaking, injuries to the brain happen because of trauma inflicted upon the head area which is caused by an outside force. Although this outside force does not have to actually pierce your skull to cause you brain damage. If it does, the actual damage to your brain is much more likely to be quite severe. A real traumatic brain injury can cause temporary loss of your brain functions, or it can actually cause you permanent loss of brain cells. On top of this, bruising, tissue damage, bleeding, and even a death can happen.

What are the actual causes of brain injuries?

While it is surely possible for serious brain injuries to happen in many ways, here are the most common five causes of traumatic brain injuries, according to research published by the Federal “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” (CDC):

  • Slips and Falls — 40 percent
  • Miscellaneous or Other —19 percent
  • Struck or hit by some type of object — 16 percent
  • Accident involving a motor vehicle— 14 percent
  • Injuries from assaults on your person — 11 percent

After any accident, the probably responsible party's insurance policy carrier may well try and reduce the amount of the claim. Frequently, part of an insurance adjuster’s training is to get information to assist in reducing the claim, with this information coming from the injured party. Although some insurance carriers are less actually guilty of this questionable but legal practice than some others, it is important that you understand that insurance companies are in business to make a profit. They understand that reducing claims results in their making increased profits for their shareholders. This frequently creates a situation in which the injured party is offered a settlement which does not reflect well the damages you have suffered. If you accept one of these settlements, you lose forever the ability to really go after more money if your injuries mandate further medical attention. It is all important that accident victims get good legal help in any possible personal injury case, and Carabin Shaw’s Midland Injury Lawyers are ready and able to fight the good fight for your rights.
