Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a major cause of disability and death in the U.S. In fact, TBIs account for approximately 30 percent of all injury deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This type of injury occurs due to physical trauma to the brain and head, such as a bump, blow, shaking, or penetration. Brain injuries can range from mild to severe but in all cases there is some level of disruption to the brain’s normal functioning
At our Atlanta law practice, we represent clients suffering from head and brain injury cases. Brain injuries may include primary injuries which consist of injuries sustained at the time of the traumatic event, as well as secondary injuries which refer to changes that occur over a period of time following the primary brain injury. The main types of brain injuries that can occur after an accident include:
- Hematoma. A subdural hematoma is caused by a severe head injury that causes blood to collect outside the brain. The increased pressure inside the skull, coupled with bleeding, makes a subdural hematoma a life-threatening condition.
- Hemorrhage. Cerebral hemorrhages occur when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures causing bleeding in the brain. The bleeding typically occurs at the time of the accident and can continue which increases pressure in the skull. Symptoms usually appear suddenly and may include headache, confusion, weakness, and possibly paralysis.
- Concussion. Although the effects of a concussion are usually temporary, some victims may experience prolonged impaired cognitive function, sleep disturbances, disorders of smell and taste, and psychological adjustment issues.

Causes of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can develop for a wide range of reasons. However, most often brain injuries occur due to a violent jolt or blow to the head. These traumatic brain injuries can cause significant swelling and bleeding in the brain which damage nerve cells and impair mental functioning. While most types of traumatic brain injuries can be treated, there is often lingering effects that can impact your daily life and your future. Research has shown that suffering a traumatic brain injury increases a person’s risk of dementia and other neurodegenerative and neurological disorders.
Falls are one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries. A fall down the stairs due to an absent or faulty railing, a fall from a ladder due to a defective ladder, or a slip and fall caused by the negligence of a retail store can all lead to brain injuries. Motor vehicle accidents can also cause significant head and brain injuries due to the force of the moving vehicle and the impact of the head against surfaces like the dashboard. The final most common cause of brain injuries includes colliding with or being struck by an object, such as a baseball.
Traumatic brain injuries are unlike any other type of injury, making these cases more complex. It is not always easy to prove the existence of a brain injury without undergoing a thorough investigation of the case and obtaining expert testimony from medical professionals. Due to these challenges, it is important to work alongside an attorney who specializes in personal injury.
