Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
There are many causes of traumatic brain injuries, and the important thing to note is that traumatic brain injuries do not have to result from a major, catastrophic incident. In fact, serious brain injuries can result from a fall, a car accident, a sports incident, or a work-related accident. Regardless of the incident, there are two types of brain injuries, including open and closed injuries. Open injuries mean that the skull has been fractured; closed injuries, on the other hand, does not involve a fracture. Closed injuries can be more dangerous than open ones because of the possibility of brain swelling or the formation of dangerous blood clots in the brain.
If the cause of the traumatic brain injury was related to the recklessness or negligence of another individual, you should consider the legal benefits of a highly experienced team of personal injury lawyers. For instance, some example of potential lawsuits may include:
- A drunk driver crashed into your vehicle
- An employer did not maintain safety standards, such as on an NYC scaffold or construction site
- A landlord or business owner was negligent and did not maintain safety standards on his/her property
- A doctor was negligent during a medical procedure and caused a brain injury (such as during birth)
How an NYC Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help
Some possible symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can include headaches, nausea, confusion or other cognitive problems, changes in personality, depression, irritability, severe vision problems, and other emotional or behavioral problems. As such, a traumatic brain injury can have some long-term or even life-long consequences. Following an injury, an insurance company may attempt to settle with an amount that will only cover immediate medical expenses. Unfortunately, this is not satisfactory for traumatic brain injuries.
By pursuing those responsible for your injury with a personal injury lawsuit, you and your attorneys can fight for reasonable compensation that covers both immediate and long-term expenses, including medical expenses, physical therapy, medical modifications to the home, emotional counseling, loss of income from work, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more.
