Types of Head and Brain Injuries
Sudden and intense impact to the skull can lead to a host of head and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). TBI and head injuries can have a lasting effect on your quality of life and ability to function, and even your ability to work. Even a minor head injury requires diagnosis and care in order to prevent more serious harm from occurring. Some of the common types of head injuries that the experienced head injury legal team at The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. deal with include:
- Contusions – Blows to the head that cause bleeding or bruising
- Skull fracture
- Diffuse axonal injury – Sudden back and forth shaking, or side-to-side head rotation
- Penetration injury – Injuries involving a sharp object penetrating the skull or brain, such as a shard of glass, a rebar pipe, knife, or a bullet
- Hypoxic brain injury – When limited oxygen flow to the brain causes injury
- Anoxic brain injury – Injury caused when the brain is completely deprived of oxygen
Even a minor concussion can cause headaches, blurry vision, vertigo, tinnitus, and other short-term and long-term problems. If you have experienced any sort of head trauma, see a doctor immediately to identify any potential brain injuries. If you have suffered any head injury, call a compassionate and devoted head injury attorney to help you communicate with insurance companies, negotiate with negligent parties, and fight for the recovery you are owed.
