Types of Brain Injury
There are two types of brain injuries, acquired and traumatic. Acquired brain injuries are the result of medical malpractice or conditions such as stroke, infection, or cerebral palsy. An external force or head trauma causes traumatic brain injuries.
A brain injury is considered mild, moderate, or severe. A mild traumatic brain injury involves an impact to the head where the skull is left intact. A severe traumatic brain injury leaves the skull open or fractured upon impact.
- A mild brain injury includes a concussion with little or no time spent unconsciousness
- A moderate brain injury may consist of up to 24 hours spent in an unconsciousness state
- A severe brain injury may involve 24 hours or more of unconsciousness, and residual effects upon regaining consciousness
Causes of Brain Injury
Common causes of traumatic brain injury include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Falling objects
- Pedestrian accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Sports accidents
- Bike accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
A head injury can affect a victim’s ability to walk, talk, and manage simple daily tasks. The location and extent of a brain injury could permanently impact a victim’s motor functions, senses, cognitive abilities, memory, emotional disposition, and psychological state.
Compensation After a Brain Injury
With brain injury comes the likelihood of extensive loss of income, significant medical expenses, the progression of brain injury, and the need for ongoing care. Therefore, the damages pursued on behalf of brain injury victims and their loved ones often include the following:
- Medical bills including acute medical treatment, continuous physical and occupational therapy, medical equipment, medications, and home medical care
- Lost wages and loss of income
- Pain and suffering such as physical and emotional trauma, psychological counseling, the loss of enjoyment of life, reduced capacity, and loss of companionship
- Property damage if there was an accident
- Punitive damages, if applicable
- Funeral costs if the injury led to death
If a brain injury led to the death of a loved one, you may also explore filing a wrongful death claim with the help of a wrongful death lawyer in Sacramento.
