Consequences of Brain Injuries
head injury, also known as a traumatic brain injury, occurs when there is a traumatic
impact to the brain. There are three major types of brain injury: closed
traumatic brain injury, penetrating traumatic brain injury, and deceleration
injury. All three of these brain injuries can vary in their severity and
the portion of the brain affected. A closed traumatic brain injury is
a brain injury from an impact that did not pierce the skull. These include
any type of blunt force to the head, such as striking the head on a part
of a vehicle in a car accident. The second type, penetrating brain injury,
occurs when an object pierces the skull and penetrates the brain tissue.
The last type is a specific kind of closed brain injury that is called
an acceleration-deceleration injury. This occurs when the brain is moved
rapidly within the skull and strikes the interior of the skull, causing
swelling in the brain. These acceleration-deceleration injuries often
occur in car accidents, because the force of the body moving within the
vehicle causes rapid movement of the brain within the skull. These brain
injuries can occur even if there was no physical object that struck or
penetrated the head. Because of the complexity and serious nature of brain
injuries, a victim and their family need a New York head injury lawyer
to represent them and ensure that they are compensated fairly.
Was negligence the cause of your accident?
Head injuries and brain injuries can be caused by many different types
of accidents. The most common type of accident that causes brain injury
is a car accident. When vehicles collide, there is a substantial risk
that the head will strike part of a vehicle, or will sustain acceleration-deceleration
Head-on collisions and rollover collisions are particularly likely to cause a head injury.
Car accidents, however, are not the only way that a victim can sustain
serious head injury. Fall injuries, work accidents,
trip and fall accidents, and many other types of accidents can cause serious head injuries.
If you have sustained a head injury in any type of accident, you should
speak with a New York injury lawyer to determine what legal rights you
may have to file a personal injury lawsuit. Head injuries have varying
prognoses because every head injury affects the victim differently depending
on the severity, type of injury, and location of the brain affected. However,
head injuries all have the potential to be devastating and life-altering.
They can affect a person’s motor skills, cognitive abilities, and
Fight for the Full and Fair Compensation You Deserve
There are many different warning signs and symptoms of a head injury. Some
of the symptoms are easy to recognize, but others go unnoticed for days
or weeks after the accident. It is very difficult to diagnose traumatic
brain injury, and sometimes even CT scans do not reveal the serious damage
that the brain has sustained. Some head injury symptoms include dizziness,
headaches, blurred vision, and memory loss. If a car accident victim sustained
any head injury in a car, they may have lost consciousness for a period
of time. Any loss of consciousness in an accident is a warning sign that
should not be ignored.
If an accident victim blacked out for any length of time in a car accident,
they should be thoroughly examined for head injuries and traumatic brain
injuries. If you suffered any type of concussion injury, you are also
at risk of brain injuries. Head concussions and brain concussions can
be serious medical conditions if they are not treated properly. If you
or your loved one suffered injuries in a car accident and experienced
any of the symptoms of traumatic brain injury in New York, you should
speak with a New York personal injury attorney about filing a car accident
lawsuit. You deserve to be compensated for your serious head injuries.

In some severe circumstances, head injury can be deadly. If an individual
does not receive treatment for their head injury, the complications can
cause severe swelling and brain damage. Sometimes swelling and pressure
in the brain can be relieved with surgery, but if this surgery is not
completed immediately, the swelling in the brain can cause permanent brain
damage or death.
When an individual suffers a catastrophic head injury, they sometimes lapse
into a coma. If the brain injury is severe or the individual shows no
signs of waking from the coma, their family may have to make the difficult
decision to remove the victim from life support. If your family member
died as a result of head trauma in a car accident, you should contact
one of the Brooklyn injury lawyers at Belushin Law Firm to discuss filing
a wrongful death lawsuit.
