Common Types of Brain Injuries

Concussion

The mildest form of brain injury. Symptoms can include a momentary loss of consciousness, being dazed, confusion and appearing disoriented.

Diffuse Axonal

Commonly occurring in car accidents, a diffuse axonal is widespread damage to the brain caused by it hitting against the interior skull in multiple locations. This often is a result of a sudden and severe shaking, jolt, or rotation of the head.

Coup-contrecoup

Brain damage at the site of impact as well as the opposite side of the brain, due to the initial impact causing the brain to strike against the back of the skull.

Contusion

A bruise on the brain from the impact of an object with a person’s head, which may cause swelling in the brain. Surgery is sometimes necessary to sustain oxygen flow and release pressure.

Penetration

When an object pierces through the skull and damages the brain, which can include a foreign object or a piece of the broken skull bone.

Leading Causes of Brain Injuries

Accidents that commonly result in severe blows to the head causing brain injuries, include:

  • Slip and falls – Falls are a leading cause of brain injuries in the U.S. There is consistently a risk of this type of accident occurring, as they can happen anywhere. Some examples include wet or slippery surfaces, staircases without handrails, poorly lit areas, and inadequately staffed nursing homes.
  • Car Accidents – The force of impact often causes brain injuries. Passengers may hit their head against the vehicle’s interior, airbags, the windshield, or even the ground or another object if thrown from the car.
  • Pedestrian Accidents – Pedestrians are at a high risk of brain injury due to a lack of protection when an accident with a vehicle takes place.
  • Bicycle / Motorcycle Accidents – Similarly to pedestrians, both bicyclists and motorcyclists lack the protection that a vehicle provides. Due to their vulnerability, the chances of suffering a brain injury are high.
  • Construction Accidents – Construction workers are often in danger of falling from heights, being struck by equipment, or by falling debris.
  • Assault – A person may choose to intentionally inflict harm upon another.

When accidents resulting in a brain injury are caused by negligent actions, the at-fault party can be held liable for damages. Victims may pursue compensation for medical bill and related expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and possibly more. A Kentucky brain injury lawyer will have the ability to look over your claim and determine its value.
