Types of Car Accident Brain Injuries

Head injuries and brain injuries can be related because many types of impact or trauma sustained by the head can or will affect the brain as well. Brain injuries are more serious, as they can have far-reaching effects on any part of the body, including important bodily functions that are vital for living. Common brain injuries we often see in Florida car accidents are briefly described below.

A concussion occurs when the brain strikes the inside of your skull as a result of a sudden change in movement or momentum. Concussions can result in a range of symptoms, including amnesia, pain, dizziness, nausea, slurred speech, fatigue and difficulty concentrating or being confused.

A contusion is a bruise on the brain that typically results from a direct impact to the head. In a car accident, contusions can occur when the driver is struck by external objects or hits his or her head on fixed objects in the car. They can result in cognitive changes, numbness or tingling, slurred speech and headaches.

Penetrating Trauma
Many forces are at work in a car accident, and this includes objects that can penetrate the head or skull with force. Objects lying about in the car can become deadly missiles and cause serious injuries. Penetrating trauma is often accompanied by heavy bleeding, swelling of the head and/or brain, difficulty breathing, possible coma or loss of consciousness.

Other Brain Injuries
Some car accidents can cause the head to whip and make the brain slam against the skull, causing bruising or other trauma to the brain. The swelling can cause loss of consciousness, coma or pressure on parts of the brain that affect motion or bodily functions and even death.

Florida Compensation for Car Accident Brain Injuries

Injuries to the brain are serious and require extensive evaluation and treatments. Some brain injuries can leave the victim with permanent damage or paralysis, disrupting lives and careers forever. When you or a loved one sustains such an injury in a car accident, you deserve to be compensated. No amount of money can reverse or pay for a permanent or catastrophic brain injury, but the amount you recover can help with medical expenses, rehabilitation, supporting your family after losing a career and other losses.
