Seeking Compensation For Traumatic Brain Injuries
There are many causes of brain injuries from motor vehicle accidents to workplace accidents to medical negligence. The brain injury attorneys at Rad Law Firm have extensive experience with brain injury cases. A brain injury can be a difficult condition that affects a person’s quality of life. It can affect who we are, what we do and how we feel.
Brain injuries affect everyone differently and vary from person to person and depend on various factors such as the cause, location and severity. Compensation for pain and suffering often requires a lifetime of care and long-term medical expenses.
Types And Causes Of Injuries
Brain injuries typically fall into two categories: traumatic and nontraumatic. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an alteration in brain function caused by an external force. Nontraumatic brain injuries are often caused by stroke, seizure, electric shock, exposure to toxic substances and depriving the brain of oxygen. Causes of brain injury include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Sports/recreation injuries
- Workplace injuries
- Electric shock
- Toxic exposure
While there are many causes of these injuries, there are also many signs of a traumatic brain injury.
