Our experience representing personal injury victims throughout Ohio has shown that anyone can be at risk for a traumatic brain injury in an accident. While many head injuries are considered to be “minor” in nature, even the most “minor” injury can have a significant impact on a victim’s long-term memory, decision-making function, sensory function, and impulse control. Even football associations have been recently discussing the implementation of new rules and regulations to protect football players from brain injuries and their long term consequences. The medical community is now beginning to realize that head injuries we used to think were insignificant may have very severe and permanent long-term effects. For this reason, it is important to have an experienced attorney who understands and can evaluate the potential devastation of a brain injury.
Every brain injury is different. However, because of the brain’s complexity, every small difference is extremely significant in the permanent effects. Typically, brain injuries are classified as mild, moderate or severe. The most common types of brain injuries include:
- Closed Head Injuries
- Skull Fractures
- Brain Swelling
- Hypoxic Brain Injuries
- Penetration Injuries
It is crucial to diagnose any type of brain injury as soon as possible. There are treatment options that can minimize the permanent and long term effects of a brain injury. In some cases, treatment means the difference between life and death. If a head injury remains untreated for too long it may lead to severe complications or even death.
