Traumatic Brain Injuries: Causes, Symptoms, and Legal Recourse

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are among the most severe and life-altering consequences of accidents, affecting millions of Americans each year. At Omni Injury and Accident Law, P.C., a personal injury law firm based in New York City, we have witnessed the devastating impact these injuries can have on victims and their families. In this blog post, we’ll explore the causes and symptoms of TBIs, as well as the legal options available to those who have suffered these injuries due to someone else’s negligence.

Traumatic Brain Injuries Causes, Symptoms,

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

TBIs occur when a sudden, external force causes damage to the brain. Some of the most common causes of TBIs include:

Motor vehicle accidents: Car, truck, and motorcycle crashes are a leading cause of TBIs, particularly when victims suffer blows to the head or experience sudden jolts or rotational forces.

Falls: Slip and fall accidents, as well as falls from heights, can result in TBIs when victims strike their heads against hard surfaces.

Sports injuries: Contact sports such as football, hockey, and boxing carry a high risk of TBIs, especially when athletes experience repeated concussions.

Physical assaults: Blows to the head during physical altercations or attacks can cause TBIs, as can incidents of domestic violence or child abuse.

Explosive blasts: Military personnel and civilians exposed to explosive devices may suffer TBIs due to the sudden change in air pressure and the force of the blast wave.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The symptoms of a TBI can vary widely depending on the severity and location of the injury, as well as the individual’s age and overall health. Some common symptoms include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness or balance problems
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sensory disturbances (e.g., blurred vision, ringing in the ears)
  • Memory loss or difficulty concentrating
  • Mood changes or irritability
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Seizures

In some cases, symptoms may not appear immediately after the injury but may develop over hours, days, or even weeks. This is why it’s crucial to seek medical attention after any accident or incident that may have caused a TBI, even if you don’t feel seriously injured at the time.

Legal Recourse for Traumatic Brain Injury Victims

If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, pursuing a legal claim for a TBI can be complex and challenging, particularly when dealing with insurance companies or at-fault parties who may try to downplay the severity of your injuries.

That’s where the experienced personal injury attorneys at Omni Injury and Accident Law, P.C. can help.

  2. Consulting with medical experts to document the extent of your injuries and the long-term impact on your health and quality of life
  3. Negotiating with insurance companies and at-fault parties to secure a fair settlement
  4. Representing you in court, if necessary, to fight for your rights and interests

We understand that the thought of pursuing a legal claim may feel overwhelming when you’re already dealing with the physical and emotional aftermath of a TBI.
