Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Robinson Yablon Cooper, LLP is experienced in handling a variety of traumatic brain injury cases, including those resulting from:
- Blunt-force trauma, where a solid object (like a board, beam, or floor) strikes the head;
- Piercing trauma, in which a foreign object actually pierces the skull and enters the cranial cavity; and/or
- “Whiplash,” in which forces cause the head to rapidly move back and forth (such as what occurs in a rear-end car collision or head-on car accident).
Moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries frequently result in a loss of consciousness and/or amnesia. In addition, any victim who suffers a TBI may experience:
- Nausea and/or vomiting;
- Fatigue and sleepiness;
- Mood swings;
- Fogginess or difficulty in concentrating.
In most cases, we strongly advisable a victim who suffers a head injury to seek prompt medical attention. Generally, the sooner that a victim receives medical attention the better his or her prognosis and the fewer complications he or she may experience further along.
