The brain is the most critical component of the central nervous system and, as such, the most vulnerable area of the human body, as injuries to the brain can drastically affect the proper function of any other system in the body. Our skulls are designed to protect the brain as much as possible, but accidents and injuries often cause trauma to the head that overcomes our natural defenses and results in serious injuries.
Traumatic brain injuries are typically the result of an unfortunate accident, but there are also many instances in which the carelessness of another party leads directly to an innocent person’s injury. In these cases, the individual or party responsible for the accident can be held liable for any resulting expenses and damages. Through taking legal action, a victim of injury may be able to obtain compensation for the losses they sustained.
Common Brain Injuries
Head trauma of any kind can result in damage to the brain, and in some situations problems may not immediately manifest themselves, yet still have long term consequences for the injury victim. The following are a few common examples of injuries suffered after an accident involving head trauma:
- Memory loss
- Brain damage
- Cranial hematoma
Unlike many other injuries, brain injuries often involve serious complications that affect the victim for a long period of time, if not the rest of their life. Thus, it is important to consider these far-reaching consequences when seeking fair compensation for your losses.
