Brain Injury Attorney in Olathe
Pursuing Compensation After a Devastating Injury
There are countless ways in which a person could be injured in an accident;
however, one of the most serious of all personal injuries is most definitely
traumatic brain injury. When a person receives a blow to the head in an
accident that causes harm to the brain, or if the skull is cracked or
punctured in a way that damages the brain, the result can be devastating
and even permanent.
Accidents that could result in brain injury include but are not limited
to the following:
Understanding Brain Injuries
In order to suffer from a brain injury, a person must hit their head hard
enough to cause bruising and/or swelling of the brain, or the skull must
be cracked or punctured in a way that damages the brain. Examples include
a motorcycle accident where the motorcyclist loses their helmet and slams
their head against the pavement, or a gunshot wound to the head. When
this occurs, the damage to the brain could be minor or severe.
In minor cases, the victim could suffer:
- Temporary dizziness or unconsciousness
- Memory loss
As the wound heals, however, their health, memory and emotions could return
to normal. Severe injury – also known as traumatic brain injury
or TBI – can have much worse and longer lasting effects. If the
brain damage is severe enough, the person's personality and mental
capacity could be altered. In other cases, they could suffer from permanent
amnesia, or even fall into a coma.
