What is a traumatic brain injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI), usually the result from a sudden violent blow to the head, is a catastrophic personal injury, affecting one or more areas of the brain, causing a victim to suffer impairment to memory, vision, communication, and/or mobility. Brain injury severity can vary greatly based on the area of the brain affected and the extent of the damage. Traumatic brain injuries may occur simultaneously with a concussion (a disturbance of brain function) or a contusion (a hemorrhage within the brain), two common brain injuries. A mild brain injury may cause temporary confusion and headache, but a serious brain injury may cause wrongful death.
What is a spinal cord injury?
A spinal cord injury is a catastrophic personal injury which damages the conduit that delivers the brain’s messages to the rest of the body. Usually the result of a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine, a spinal cord injury results when the vertebrae are fractured, dislocated, or bruised, or when the spinal cord is crushed. When this occurs, the victim often loses function or sensation in his or her extremities. Spinal cord injuries often result in permanent paralysis.
Who can file a catastrophic personal injury lawsuit?
Anyone who suffers a catastrophic personal injury as the result of the reckless or negligent actions of another party may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Whether you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, construction accident, or as the result of a defective or unsafe product, you can bring a claim against the responsible party (or parties).
