At Vishno Law Firm, we understand how difficult life can become after a loved one suffers a head injury. Some brain injuries are less serious than others but may need still specialized evaluation and treatment. A "concussion" may sound harmless enough, but it's still a brain injury that can become worse with time and if left untreated. Other brain injuries are more severe - including permanent brain damage that leaves people unable to think clearly or function normally. In certain extreme cases, head injuries can result in a wrongful death.

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can occur if the brain is hit by a sudden force or impact. A severe blow can jolt the brain within the skull, shaking it and potentially causing brain injury. Brain swelling and bruising may take place, along with torn blood vessels and intracranial bleeding. If you were injured or a loved one was killed due to negligence, contact Vishno Law Firm today. A delay may affect your rights.

What are common causes of a traumatic brain injury?

A cracked or fractured skull is defined as a penetrating head injury and can usually be quickly identified, such as when someone's head hits the windshield in a car accident. A closed head injury may be more difficult to diagnose, however, since doctors cannot see into the cranium. They must often run numerous tests, such as MRIs, CT scans, X-rays and other brain scans, in order to establish the extent of the damage. Dangerous drugs may cause brain injury in addition to physical blows to the head.

If you were in an accident don't remember being unconscious, it is important to tell your doctor about any difficulty with memory, concentration, blurred vision or head pain.

If your child is complaining of headache after an incident, seek medical treatment. The child injuries may be more severe than you realize. He or she may be diagnosed with a concussion, which is another term for a brain injury.

  • Coma
  • Inability to walk
