What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

A traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain experiences trauma. Various forms of trauma can lead to a TBI, including:

  • Blunt-force trauma to the head
  • Whiplash trauma
  • Penetrating trauma

Depending on the nature of the trauma, the brain injury will either be a closed-head injury or an open-head injury. Closed-head TBIs occur when the brain impacts the inner cranium and becomes damaged.

Open-head TBIs, in contrast, typically occur when a penetrating force, such as a bullet or a knife, pierces the brain. An open-head brain injury may also occur when fragments of the skull enter the brain.

Types & Symptoms of Brain Injuries

There are three levels of TBIs (traumatic brain injuries):

  • Mild TBI: Mild TBIs are also known as concussions. According to brain injury statistics, most TBIs are mild. A mild traumatic brain injury typically results in symptoms such as dizziness, fatigue, headaches, anxiety, memory problems, nausea, and vomiting. The term "mild" does not mean that medical care is not necessary.
  • Moderate TBI: Moderate TBI victims may exhibit the same symptoms as those who have experienced a mild TBI, with the addition of a loss of consciousness that lasts longer than 30 minutes but less than 24 hours. Additionally, the victim may experience confusion and other symptoms for up to a week.
  • Severe TBI: Those who suffer a severe traumatic brain injury experience a loss of consciousness that lasts for more than one day. This level of damage typically appears as significant head and brain changes on CT and MRI scans. The most likely outcome for individuals who suffer a severe TBI is loss of bodily functions, loss of cognitive abilities, or death.

Common Causes of Head Injuries

Everyday events and activities are among the most common causes of brain injuries. For this reason, members of society have general and specific duties of care toward others to behave in a safe manner.

Some of these common causes of brain injuries include:

Regardless of the cause, a TBI lawyer can help you pursue damages through a personal injury lawsuit or claim for compensation or by way of a workers' comp claim. Under certain circumstances, you may even be eligible to file more than one claim, such as a workers' comp and a personal injury claim.

What Difficulties Can Result from a TBI?

A TBI can cause long-term or permanent brain damage that forever affects a victim's life. Depending on the extent of the injury, TBI results may include:

  • Memory loss;
  • Persistent headaches;
  • Dizziness;
  • Recurring seizures;
  • Visual and audio changes;
  • Paralysis;
  • Compromised language skills;
  • Reduced cognition;
  • Anxiety and depression;
  • Changes in personality;
  • Permanent vegetative state;
  • Death.

Issues with problem-solving capabilities and difficulties with sleep also tend to occur after traumatic brain injuries.

Who Is Liable for a Traumatic Brain Injury in Seattle?

Liability for traumatic brain injuries depends on the circumstances. In many cases, a negligent party is responsible, whether they were driving recklessly or failed to maintain a property in a safe condition for visitors or guests.

In some traumatic brain injury cases, more than one liable party exists. Regardless of the situation, with an experienced brain injury attorney on your side, you can expect that all liable parties will be identified and held to pay for your losses.

Obtaining Compensation for a Serious Brain & Head Injury

Compensation for losses caused by brain injuries is available through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Various damages victims may seek to recover include:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Future medical costs;
  • Lost wages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Loss of enjoyment of life;
  • Permanent disability.

With a workers' compensation claim, your compensation will be limited to medical bills, a portion of your lost wages, and limited healthcare-related travel expenses unless you are eligible to file a concurrent personal injury claim.

Why Do You Need a Head Injuries Attorney in Seattle?

Traumatic brain injury cases are filed because of significant destruction and loss in the lives of the victims. Fortunately, compensation is often available for these victims.

However, the amount of compensation you receive as a victim of a severe brain injury frequently depends on whether you have an experienced brain injury attorney representing you.

Sadly, insurance companies and defendants make it difficult to obtain the compensation payouts that victims need. However, with a skilled attorney representing them, victims of brain injuries have more than a good chance of receiving maximum compensation for their losses.

Additionally, those with attorneys representing them don't have to worry about their cases and have the time to address their injuries and losses.
