Cases Involving Brain Injuries Require Experienced Legal Representation
Brain injuries are often placed in one of two categories:
- Open Head Injury: These cases involve a head injury in which the dura mater, the outer layer of the meninges, is breached. Penetrating injuries can be caused by high velocity projectiles or objects of lower velocity such as knives, or bone fragments from a skull fracture that are driven into the brain.
- Closed head injury: These cases involve a brain injury from an external impact that does not include a break in the skull. A closed head injury may result in swelling or bleeding within the skull, which can lead to brain damage or death.
In all cases, it is important for a person with a head injury to seek immediate medical attention so that an appropriate diagnosis can be made and, if necessary, emergent medical treatment implemented.
Unfortunately, those who suffer head injuries may experience permanent cognitive deficits that will impair their ability to function at pre-accident levels. It is often necessary to obtain neuro-psychological testing to not only diagnose and confirm the existence of a brain injury but also the extent of the residual effects of a brain injury.
