Know the Difference Between Traumatic Brain Injuries and Acquired Brain Injuries
While all brain injuries are serious, even when they are treatable through long-term care, rehabilitation, and therapy, the individuals who are undergoing care have a long road of recovery ahead.
That is also true for individuals who suffer from acquired brain injuries, which are different than blunt force head injuries.
Acquired brain injuries occur when there is a lack of oxygen or blood flowing to the brain. The injuries are often similar in that they can interrupt the cognitive, sensory, or motor functions of the person who suffered harm and may require extended or even life-long medical care, which will be expensive and could leave our clients out of work for extended periods when they can return to work at all.
The most common causes of acquired brain injuries are various forms of asphyxiation, hypoxia, or anoxia that shut off the brain’s oxygen supply, due either to a problem with blood circulation or to a lack of access to air that occurs during:
- Chemical exposure in a confined space, including workplaces
- Near-drowning episodes at swimming pool or during boat accidents
- Choking accidents where there is a delay in emergency assistance
Depending on the length of time of oxygen deprivation, the extent of the acquired brain injury can be very severe and permanent. If you or a loved one has suffered an acquired brain injury, contact our experienced personal injury lawyers in Beverly Hills & Los Angeles today to learn how we can help you hold the liable party accountable for your injuries, so you can get the medical care and time away from work you need to pursue the best physical and emotional outcome.
Traumatic Brain Injuries Require Specialized Treatment
No two people who suffer a traumatic brain injury will have the same medical care needs, simply because these types of injuries affect everyone differently, and require a customized approach to achieve medical success.
Brain injuries can cause short-term, long-term cognitive, and even permanent physical, behavioral, and emotional effects, depending on where the injury occurred and to whom.
These unique injuries can require specialized medical care that lasts months, years, or even a lifetime.
Our customized approach to producing legal solutions for each of our clients allows us to pursue the best financial outcome available for their unique case, which may include:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Past and future loss of enjoyment of life
- Other non-economic and economic damages
Attorneys must understand the types of brain injuries, their symptoms, the treatment options, and long-term care needs. This knowledge of complex head injuries is learned only by working with clients and families of victims who have suffered serious brain injuries first-hand as the effects of brain injuries will differ, and so will our approach to producing results.
