Brain Injury FAQ
What are the leading causes of traumatic brain injury?
A blow to the head or a sudden jolt may cause damage to the brain, classified as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Some brain injuries are relatively minor and may resolve with little medical intervention. Others are severe and will affect a person’s ability to think, remember, speak, and perform motor skills.
The following are the most common causes of traumatic brain injury:
- Traffic accidents
- Sports-related trauma
- Intentional assaults
- Blast/explosion injuries
Any of the above causes can be traced back to negligence or wrongdoing. This opens the door for a personal injury lawsuit or other legal action against the responsible party or parties. Serving Lafayette and all of Louisiana and the entire U.S., our firm is prepared to represent the interests of people who have suffered brain injuries. We’re committed to seeing justice served.
How Are Acquired & Traumatic Brain Injuries Different?
An acquired brain injury is any injury to the brain that develops after birth. It is not congenital or hereditary. There are two types of acquired brain injury: traumatic and non-traumatic. A traumatic brain injury is acquired through trauma, typically a blow to the head or a sudden impact that causes the brain to collide with the inside of the skull. A non-traumatic brain injury is one acquired through other means, like exposure to toxins, stroke, near-drowning, lack of oxygen, or pressure from a tumor.
When acquired brain injuries occur because individuals or corporations are negligent or put their interests above the safety of others, they can be held accountable. Our Lafayette brain injury attorneys take on cases for people who have suffered from near-drowning accidents, falls, exposure to hazardous materials, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, and more.
What are some symptoms and consequences of a brain injury?
A brain injury can impact a victim in many different ways. The type and severity of symptoms will vary depending on the extent of trauma to the brain.
The following are signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury:
- Loss of consciousness
- Difficulty concentrating
- Memory problems
- Personality changes
- Difficulty balancing
- Speech problems
- Ringing in the ears
- Blurred or double vision
- Cognitive difficulties
If you or someone you know has fallen, been struck in the head, or injured in any way and you notice these signs, be sure to seek medical attention right away. With brain injuries, immediate medical intervention can help to lessen the risk of further damage.
