Types of Brain Injuries

The brain is a sensitive organ, and an injury can have detrimental effects on a person’s life. Although all brain injuries are dangerous, many different types of injuries can occur after an accident.

Concussions are the most common type of brain injury. A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that occurs when the brain is jolted or shaken inside the skull. This can happen in car accidents, slip and fall accidents, or a number of different types. Symptoms of this type of brain injury may include headaches, dizziness, nausea, and confusion.

Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, occur when there is a blow or jolt to the head that disrupts normal brain function. Traumatic brain injuries can have life-altering effects, and symptoms include everything from headaches, dizziness, memory loss, changes in mood or behavior, and more.

  • BRAIN INJURY IN A BAR FIGHT | AKRON PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER.

    Akron man was injured in a bar fight and suffered brain injuries which required rehabilitation and a hospital stay. The brain injury required surgery to reduce swelling, along with a long rehab process. Litigation co-counsel was Lynn Lazarro. Brain injuries can occur from blunt force trauma that occurs when a person is hit in the head, as is the case here, or when the head hits the dashboard or steering wheel, as in the case of a car accident. The brain itself can be damaged simply by striking the inside of the skull during a whiplash type injury, even if there is no head impact on an external object. This is according to the US Center for Disease Control. The brain damage may not fully show up for weeks or months, and total recovery is not always possible. It requires expert treatment to find and treat all of the various symptoms of brain injury.

    Not all brain injuries are dramatic, as in the case above. We often see clients who have trouble remembering phone numbers, lists or people’s names. They can’t find their keys or they forget appointments. It is these little things that can signal that the brain has been injured, and the patient should talk to their primary care physician immediately. Special testing, such as SPECT scans and MRIs, can be used to find the injury and lead to treatment where possible. Vocational rehabilitation can oftentimes help a person cope with the brain injury that may never fully go away.

    In my experience, mild traumatic brain injuries are one of the most often missed injuries in the Ohio personal injury field. Perhaps because the symptoms can be so subtle, perhaps because patients do not even know there is a problem or they do not associate it with the recent trauma, or people are too busy treating for obvious, painful injuries, such as broken bones, herniated discs, etc. Just because pain is gone in the body does not mean a person has fully recovered from an Ohio personal injury. Other subtle cues can indicate a more serious, long-term injury has occurred.

  • TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY | SUMMIT COUNTY OHIO SERIOUS INJURY LAWYER.

    A 52-year-old Akron man was severely injured when a truck driver from Bolivar turned left in front of him. The accident occurred on SR 241 in Green. The Akron man suffered a traumatic brain injury as well as many other injuries. The small town of Green had three fatalities in 2009 according to the ODPS, with Summit County having 32 fatalities.

    On a related note, it is important to note that according to current research, many brain injuries from car accidents go undiagnosed. This is because the symptoms are not always readily apparent, as is the case with serious traumatic brain injuries. Mild traumatic brain injury can cause symptoms such as forgetfulness, dizziness, etc, which many people do not tie to the car accident so they don’t tell their doctors about them. Also, in this day and age of HMOs and managed care, doctors do not always have enough time to ask all the questions to find out about mild traumatic brain injuries unless the person mentions it first. I see this a lot in my Ohio personal injury practice. Also it is important to note that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a person does not need to hit his or her head on the dashboard to suffer brain damage. The rapid movement of the brain inside the skull during a rear impact is enough to cause brain damage.

  • SERIOUS CANTON ACCIDENT | STARK COUNTY MOTORCYCLE CRASH LAWYER.

    A Canton man was involved in serious motorcycle accident. Client fractured his collarbone and ankle, and had surgery to repair injury. Motorcycle injuries are some of the worst type of collisions I see in my Ohio personal injury practice. The motorcycle provides almost no protection from the impact of the two-ton or more vehicles. We often see these types of injuries in pedestrian accidents also. The human body cannot withstand the force created by the car moving at high speed. The motorcycle accident can be even worse because the motorcycle can be moving at high speed, and a tap by a car can send the motorcycle rider flying into the air and land a long distance from the bike. The force at impact from the speed of the motorcycle leads to many brain injuries as well as catastrophic orthopedic injuries, such as spinal compression and burst fractures, compound fractures of the arms and legs and collapsed lungs if the bike lands on the client. Wearing a helmet may protect the brain to some degree, but not the neck and rest of the body. This is why safety and careful attention to the road is critical for all motorcycle drivers. You may be a great rider, but you have to avoid the car drivers who may not be such good drivers. A small mistake on their part that might cause a fender bender if you were in a car can kill you or cripple you if you are on a motorcycle.

    Awarded: $87,500

  • STRUCK BY A DRUNK DRIVER | NORTHEAST OHIO DRUNK DRIVER ACCIDENT LAWYER.

    A 39-year-old Ohio male struck by a drunk driver and suffered multiple injuries. Drunk drivers are especially dangerous on the road because their reaction time is much slower than normal drivers. Accidents that could have been avoided by sober drivers may not be avoided by those under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In Ohio, the person who is drunk is presumed to be at fault for the accident. This is a rebuttable presumption. Also, the drunk driver may be forced to pay punitive damages by a judge or jury. These are damages above and beyond the actual monetary value of the damage they have caused. They are designed to punish the person for their actions. The injured person gets to keep the punitive damages as a sort of bonus payment. Also, a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision states that auto insurance companies have to pay for attorney fee awards associated with punitive damage awards unless their policy specifically excludes the coverage.

    Awarded: $87,500

  • PEDESTRIAN STRUCK BY MOTORIST | OHIO PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS.

    Client was a pedestrian walking to her car in a bank parking lot when she was struck by a motorist. Upon impact she struck her head on the pavement. Client suffered multiple injuries.

    In this case, the client was especially in trouble because she was hit by a car and struck her head on the ground. The force of the impact would have been enough to cause serious brain injury, although thankfully that did not happen here. The force from a car is enough to shatter human bone, and the person being thrown from the scene and striking the ground is enough to force another set of ground impact injuries. When you combine the injuries from initial impact with the vehicle with the subsequent impact injuries with the ground, it is understandable why pedestrian accidents in Ohio can lead to much more serious injuries on average than car accidents. You can walk away from a 5 mph fender bender when you are in a car, but the same impact on a walking pedestrian can be massive. As you know physics state that the force of impact equals mass of the object hitting you and the acceleration of the object hitting you. With a heavy car, you do not need much speed to cause catastrophic damage, including death. Common sense tells you this. In my experience, I have seen some of the worst injuries suffered by pedestrians. If you are not thrown from the scene, you may end up under the car and crushed. These sets of injuries in my experience usually are fatal if not treated quickly.

    Awarded: $86,157.70

  • MOTORCYCLIST INJURED BY DRUNK DRIVER | OHIO MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER.

    50-year-old motorcyclist injured by an intoxicated driver who was also driving under suspension. He was transported to the emergency room. Diagnosed with a rotator cuff tear that required surgery and a lengthy rehabilitation process.

    As stated in previous posts, drunk drivers cause many avoidable accidents because of their slower reaction time. Add to this the catastrophic injuries caused when a person falls or is thrown from a moving motorcycle, and the results can be deadly. Cars offer a lot of cushion and impact absorption that just does not exist in motorcycles. Instead of a car’s metal absorbing the impact, the human body does the absorbing. The impact itself may not do as much damage as the resulting fall from the bike and impact with the road or curb. If the car hits the side of the bike, leg crush injuries are the usual result.

    Awarded: $78,000

  • MINOR INJURIES | MAHONING COUNTY SERIOUS INJURY.

  • MULTIPLE SPRAINS | CLINTON COUNTY SERIOUS INJURY.

    An accident occurred on SR 82 in Vienna when a Vienna woman failed to yield in front of a 38-year-old man from Fowler. The gentleman was treated for multiple sprains and strains.

    Awarded: $36,000

  • HERNIATED DISC AND SPRAINS | SUMMIT COUNTY OHIO SERIOUS INJURY LAWYER.

    A school bus driver from Wadsworth cut a corner too close and pushed a 49-year-old man’s car into a fire hydrant. The Copley man suffered a herniated cervical disc and multiple sprains. The accident took place on Reserve Rd. in Summit County. There were 795 school bus accidents in which the bus drivers were in error in 2009 according to the ODPS. The city of Copley had 120 injuries and only one fatality in 2009. It is important to know that buses pose a very real risk on Ohio roads because of their massive weight. A bus does not need to be going very fast in order to injure a person in a much lighter car or truck. Once injured, the value of a person’s case is determined by many factors including the extent of the injury and the length and severity of physical pain and emotional suffering directly caused by the accident, as well as how much insurance is available to pay for the injuries. No two cases are alike because no two injuries are alike and the damage to one’s life from an accident is different for each person. This is why it is important to talk to an Ohio personal injury lawyer about your particular facts before considering settling with the auto insurance company.

    Awarded: $35,000

  • REAR-ENDING CAUSES HERNIATED DISC | LUCAS COUNTY SERIOUS INJURY.
