Causes of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can occur in many different types of accidents. Often, there is no outward sign that an injury has occurred. These types of brain injuries, known as “closed-head” injuries, often go undiagnosed, untreated and uncompensated.
At Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C., our lawyers help brain injury victims and their families pursue compensation for their medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other losses. Our attorneys have the experience, knowledge and resources to investigate the causes of brain injury and hold the responsible parties financially responsible.
How a Brain Injury Can Happen
The most common form of brain injury is traumatic brain injury or TBI. This type of injury can happen in a car accident when the head is accelerated and then stopped suddenly. The brain can suffer contusions at the point of direct impact and at the site directly opposite the point of impact due to the movement of the brain. Traumatic brain injuries can result from motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, sports injuries, falling objects, medical errors and other types of negligence.
Brain injury can also be caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain. This type of injury often occurs in a medical setting. Lack of oxygen to the fetus during childbirth can lead to cerebral palsy and other severe conditions.
When investigating a brain injury case, our lawyers will work with experts to determine how the injury occurred. Then we will seek full compensation for you from those responsible.
