Causes and Types of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can differ by type, severity and cause, but even the mildest brain injury has the potential for lasting effects and serious complications. At Tom Crenney & Associates, we provide representation for the victims of brain injuries such as:
- Strokes or bleeding on the brain
- Closed head injuries and concussions
- Latent brain injuries
- Memory loss
- Prenatal brain injuries
- Post Concussive Syndrome
- Other traumatic brain injuries
These injuries are typically the result of head trauma that can be caused by motor vehicle accidents, being injured on the job, slip and fall accidents, oxygen deprivation, birth injuries and many other types of accidents.
Brain injuries may develop over time, and without proper medical treatment, many types of brain damage may be hard to detect. It is important to seek medical treatment even for “mild” symptoms, such as lasting headaches, dizziness and other indications of head trauma.
Brain injuries may also have consequences that last far beyond the time of the initial accident. For that reason, any lasting conditions need to be accounted for by your attorney when seeking compensation.
