Brain Injury – Phoenix Arizona Personal Injury Lawyer

Brain Injuries - Phoenix Accident Lawyer - Arizona Burg SimpsonEven the mildest of brain injuries can have lifelong consequences. Whether it is episodes of memory loss or loss of motor functions, brain injuries are scary, life-changing events. Traumatic brain injuries are also a leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control, making up nearly a third of all injury deaths in the United States.

Effects of a traumatic brain injury can include:

  • Impaired cognitive ability and recall
  • Impaired motor function
  • Impaired vision and/or hearing
  • Altered emotional functions, such as a change in personality

Annually, more than 2.5 million people suffer some type of brain injury, 52,000 of them fatal. But not all of these injuries are a result of a direct blow to the head. If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury, there are a number of symptoms to look for, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Nausea/dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Personality changes

If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, contact Burg Simpson Arizona today by calling 602-777-7000 and speak with a Phoenix injury attorney or you can complete our Free Case Evaluation form right now.

Medically speaking, there are two types of brain injuries.

Traumatic – These traumatic brain injuries are a result of an external force that jars the brain inside the skull and/or damages the skull itself. Types of traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Diffuse Axonal Injury
  • Concussion
  • Contusion
  • Coup-contre coup injury
  • Second Impact Syndrome
  • Open and Closed Head Injuries
  • Penetrating Injury
  • Shaken Baby Syndrome
  • Locked in Syndrome

Acquired – This type of brain injury takes place on a cellular level, usually because of pressure on the brain. Causes include:

  • Brain tumor
  • Stroke
  • Anoxic brain injury
  • Hypoxic brain injury

Some of us are at greater risk of brain injuries than others. Young men – those between the age of 15 and 24 – are at the greatest risk. The very young and very old are also at greater risk of brain injury. There are a number of things that lead to a traumatic brain injury, the most common of which, according to the CDC:

  • Falls, make up more than 40 percent of TBIs.
  • Struck by or against an object account for roughly 15 percent.
  • Motor vehicle accidents make up more than 14 percent.
  • Assault/physical violence make up more than 10 percent.

Causes of acquired brain injury include:

  • Exposure to toxic substance and/or poisoning.
  • Infection.
  • Strangulation, choking, or drowning.
  • Stroke.
  • Heart attack.
  • Tumor.
  • Aneurysm.
  • Neurological illnesses.
