Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Any accident that causes a person’s head to strike a hard object with considerable force or whip violently can potentially result in a brain injury. Since the brain is responsible for a person’s ability to process sensory information and perform cognitive functions, any damage to this organ can have devastating consequences. A person can experience a number of debilitating symptoms after a blow to the head, including memory loss, headaches, nausea, sensitivity to light and sounds, confusion, and mood swings. Even minor brain injuries such as concussions can have devastating effects if left untreated, making it crucial that injured parties seek medical attention immediately to avoid potentially life-threatening complications.

Brain injuries can result from the following:

In many cases, brain injuries result from accidents caused by another party’s negligence or careless actions. If you have suffered brain damage as a result of someone else’s recklessness, you may be entitled to recover a compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and lost earning potential by filing a personal injury claim against the responsible parties. It is important to note, however, that Louisiana has a one-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims, meaning that claimants must file a claim within one-year of their injury in order to be permitted to seek legal action. If you are looking to file a claim, it is imperative that you contact our firm as soon as possible to evaluate your legal options and determine your eligible range of compensation.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

Particularly serious personal injuries that involve the fracture or penetration of the skull are classified as traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. In many cases, TBIs cause a person to suffer permanent damage and cannot be fully recovered from, robbing a person of their ability to work and requiring round-the-clock care to accomplish basic tasks.

TBIs can cause the following symptoms:

  • Reduced cognitive function
  • Short- and long-term memory loss
  • Loss of communication skills
  • Attention deficit problems
  • Possible coma or death
