Richmond Brain Injury Attorney

The brain is our most complex and delicate organ. The damage that occurs when it is injured is often hidden; most people don’t really understand how fragile the brain is or how an injury can cause such damage.

Our lawyers do. They have a thorough understanding of traumatic brain injury, its symptoms, and its impacts, and they are very successful in defending our traumatic brain injury clients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, happens when an external blow, physical assault, or violent jolt damages the brain.  The injury can be confined to one area of the brain (focal) or affect multiple parts (diffuse).

As many as 3.8 million concussions occur in the US per year during competitive sports and recreational activities, but about 50% go unreported.

Brain injuries are classified as mild, moderate and severe.  Sometimes mild brain juries are referred to as concussion. Many people think there must be blunt force trauma to the head to receive a brain injury, but our lawyers know that isn’t true.

Although you, your family, and your friends may know something is wrong, it can be enormously challenging to prove to the insurance company or a jury that you experienced a TBI because of someone else’s actions.

The brain is an amazing organ, and the various causes and presentations of brain injuries makes them even more complicated for juries to understand and reward.

That’s why you need attorneys who understand the complexities of brain injury.

If you suffered traumatic brain injuries caused by the negligence of another party, contact a Richmond brain injury lawyer with Cantor, Grana, Buckner, & Bucci. We can gather the evidence needed to help ensure you obtain fair compensation.

What Causes A Traumatic Brain Injury?

TBI’s can occur in several ways, including motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, falls, assaults, and unintentional blunt trauma, such as accidentally being hit in the head with an object, like a baseball bat, hammer, or golf club.

When the brain is jolted or something hits it, it causes blunt force trauma. The head whips quickly from front to back or side to side or comes to a sudden stop; when this happens, the delicate brain is jolted around inside the skull, causing irreparable damage to its soft tissues.

Many TBI’s can cause bleeding inside the skull, which causes pressure to build near the brain and make the brain injury worse.

Slip, trip and fall accidents, where someone falls and hits their head on a hard surface, are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, particularly for the very young and very old.

Some of the other common causes of brain injury include:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Truck collisions
  • Workplace accidents
  •  Acts of violence
  • Medical malpractice
