Brain injury is a broad term that encompasses a wide array of different conditions an individual may experience. At Ciecka Law, our traumatic brain injury lawyers are proficient at protecting the rights of clients who have developed and suffered from a multitude of possible injuries. Listed below are several conditions that qualify as a brain injury:
Concussions are the most common type of head injury and make up a large percentage of the brain injuries that happen every year. They occur when an individual’s head experiences a powerful force that causes the brain to knock into the skull.
Brains that become bruised after a concussion or other accident, experience a contusion. Although it can potentially heal on its own, a contusion can end up forming a hematoma — or accumulation of blood — that requires medical attention to remove.
This classification of brain injury occurs when there isn’t a break in the skull, but the brain is still damaged. They are often caused by forceful movements that make the brain shake inside the skull and encompass many different types of brain injuries.
A brain hemorrhage is a localized injury characterized by uncontrolled bleeding in either the surface or tissue of the brain. This bleeding can disrupt and impede the flow of oxygen in the brain, making it a very serious injury.
If you want your personal injury claim to succeed in court so that you can obtain compensation to pay medical bills and other expenses, your attorney must prove to the court that you experienced a traumatic brain injury. However, given that injuries to the brain are internal and not physically seen, this is easier said than done without the proper evidence. You and your family should immediately keep a daily diary of all complaints, symptoms, and difficulties that are observed and what you were doing when they were observed.
A traumatic brain injury lawyer can present a variety of medical records and documents to prove that their client experienced the injury they claim. These can include MRI and CT scans and photos taken using other imaging technology that clearly display the injury. For more serious brain injuries, a doctor may perform an intracranial pressure test — which can also be utilized as evidence. In addition, for harder-to-prove symptoms such as memory loss, traumatic brain injury lawyers can present findings from a psychological analyst.
There are also several witnesses that a brain injury lawyer can call upon to support their case. A medical expert such as a neurologist may serve as an expert witness who can use their specialized knowledge of brain injuries to assist the attorney. Furthermore, much like in other personal injury cases, traumatic brain injury attorneys must also prove that the negligence of another person caused their client’s injury. This can be proven through witness testimony and similar forms of evidence.
