Head injuries should always be taken seriously. Although much of the concern about brain damage currently surrounds professional, amateur, and school sports, two of the leading causes of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, are falls and vehicle accidents.
Johnson & Biscone, P.A. has an extensive history of helping clients who have suffered brain injury as a result of negligence, including car crashes, unsafe conditions resulting in falls, and more. Call 405-232-6490 for a free case review. Our law firm serves clients throughout the Oklahoma City area, including Edmond, Norman, and nearby areas of Oklahoma.
Causes of Brain Injury
Head injuries can be “open” or “closed.” Open head injuries occur when an object penetrates the skull into the brain. In a closed head injury, the brain sustains damage inside of the skull. Open head wounds are obvious, but closed head injuries are dangerous because the nature and extent of the damage isn’t always apparent.
Lawyers at Johnson & Biscone, P.A. commonly represent clients who suffer traumatic brain injuries in circumstances such as:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Falls and falling objects in the workplace, including construction sites and oilfields
Another type of injury, anoxic or hypoxic brain injury, happens when the brain is starved of oxygen. One of the most common events leading to oxygen deprivation is negligence in the delivery room. When doctors, nurses, OB-GYNs, and other staff fail to take proper precautions and follow procedures, babies can suffer a host of birth injuries, including cerebral palsy, because their brains don’t get enough oxygen.
Signs of Brain Injury
Victims of head trauma can experience a wide range of symptoms. If you or a loved one was recently in a vehicle accident, suffered a fall, or otherwise sustained a fall, be aware of the following symptoms:
- Frequent headaches
- Blurry or distorted vision
- Slurred speech
- Trouble concentrating
- Memory loss
- Lost consciousness
- Mood swings
- Trouble sleeping or sleeping more than normal
Traumatic brain injuries can affect all aspects of life, from everyday functioning to personal relationships to the ability to perform at work. If you suspect that you suffered a brain injury, or you’re concerned about a recently injured love one, contact Johnson & Biscone to discuss the next steps of building your case.
