Causes and Devastating Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain damage most often results from falls from heights or blows to the head in car accidents, motorcycle crashes or bicycle accidents. For example, I’ve represented bicyclists and car accident victims who have sustained life changing severe traumatic injuries requiring brain surgery, and life long medical care.
The severe impact to the head can damage the frontal or temporal lobe, impairing such basic functions as speech, mobility, sight, hearing and even thought. A failure to diagnose a brain injury immediately can cause these effects to be much worse.
Traumatic brain injuries also result from asphyxiation, or a lack of oxygen. The most common example of this type of injury is a lack of oxygen at birth. Sometimes, babies who do not receive enough oxygen during delivery suffer cerebral palsy, a condition that affects neurological functioning. As an experienced birth injury lawyer, I can help you prepare a strong medical malpractice lawsuit.
Brain injuries can result in mood swings, personality changes and decreased mental capacity. Sometimes the victim never fully recovers, resulting in the need for life-long extensive care.
