About Brain Injury And Trauma

An impact or blow to the head can result in brain damage and should never be treated lightly. When one understands that the brain and spinal cord represent the central message system for voluntary and involuntary commands to the rest of the body, it is easy to see how an injury to the brain can seriously affect a person’s life. This system regulates movement, speech and even breathing. The Center for Disease Control warns, “of all types of injury, those to the brain are among the most likely to result in death or permanent disability.” Damage can be from an external source or begin internally. When damage is from an external source and a severe degree of injury results, it is referred to as traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Concussion trauma is the most common type of brain injury. Between 50 to 70% of all brain injuries from concussion trauma are as a result of motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks and motorcycles, or bicycles and pedestrians hit by motor vehicles. Other causes include:

Brain injuries can greatly impact the entire family. If you or a family member has suffered an injury from any of these causes, you owe it to yourself to consult a Los Angeles and Nevada injury attorney for assistance. The Lagstein Law Firm understands the serious medical complications attendant with brain injury and trauma and stands ready to competently represent your interests.

What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?

A severe impact, blow or sudden jerk of the head can change the way your brain normally works. It should be taken seriously and treated immediately.

There are two types of severe traumatic brain injury:

  • Closed TBI is caused by severe shaking or rotation of the brain inside the skull, leading to tears in the brain structure. This injury can result in temporary or permanent brain damage, seizure, coma or death. Direct blows lead to concussion and contusion, or bleeding bruises to the brain. A blow can be strong enough to cause the brain to slam into the opposite side of the skull, causing an additional contusion.
  • Penetrating TBI is caused by a foreign object entering the skull, as in the discharge of a firearm or from being struck by a knife or other sharp object.

The top three causes of traumatic brain injury are motor vehicle accidents, firearms and falls. When severe traumatic brain damage is due to the reckless or careless actions of another, you deserve help from a personal injury attorney. Mr. Lagstein is a dedicated and compassionate attorney who will work relentlessly for the best course of legal action against all responsible parties.
