Any type of brain injury for which another party may be liable can be covered by a brain injury lawyer.
The most common type of brain injury is Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI. TBI is the result of a powerful blow to the head, which causes damage to the brain itself.
Some of the most common types of brain injury include:
– Brain contusion (also known as brain bruising)
– Coup-Contrecoup Brain Injury
– Diffuse Axonal Injury
– Penetrating Injury
While the majority of brain injuries result from trauma to the head, not all brain injuries are the result of direct physical trauma to the head. These are known as Acquired Brain Injuries and may include:
Hypoxic Brain Injury
Brain injuries can result from many different accidents or incidents. A personal injury lawyer is best qualified to help if you suffered a brain injury as the result of a car accident or workplace accident.
