Traumatic brain injuries are not just a painful, life-changing injury, it is also extremely expensive injury to treat and care for. From missed work to mounting medical bills to the need for full-time care, the lasting impact of a TBI is tremendous not just on the victim but on their loved ones as well. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) vary greatly in impact and scope but are not something that you should have to pay for.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
A TBI occurs when there is some sort of bump, blow or unnatural jolt to the delicate brain. There are two basic types of traumatic brain injuries: open TBI and closed TBI. According to the CDC, an average of 155 people die every day from an injury that includes a TBI and most of these injuries and deaths are completely avoidable. Some of the most common causes of TBI’s that we help clients with include:
In some cases, the existence of some level of brain trauma following an accident is obvious and immediate, and in others it is not which is why it is so important to see a doctor for a thorough evaluation following your accident to help diagnose and treat any traumatic brain injury you may be dealing with. Early diagnosis and treatment do not just help with your physical and emotional recovery but it can greatly increase the value of your TBI case as well. Some of the common symptoms of a TBI include:
Open Traumatic Brain Injury
As the name implies, an open brain injury is one in which there is some type of opening—usually in the form of a fracture or break to the skull. For instance, a piece or glass or metal may cause an open TBI during the impact of a car accident; or the sudden, intense force of a slip and fall on a hard surface causing a visible fracture to the skull.
The lasting physical and emotional impact of an open TBI depends on where the head was hit, how deeply the brain was penetrated and other factors. As with most injuries, the age and overall health of the injured victim also plays a role in the severity of the injuries and his or her ability to fully recover from them.
Closed Traumatic Brain Injury
When the TBI is a closed injury, it simply means that the damage is all enclosed within the skull. When brain tissue unnaturally hits the inside of the skull in a personal injury accident, internal brain damage in the form of a closed TBI is common. Some of the common examples of closed TBI injuries include:
All the more specific types of closed traumatic brain injuries can vary greatly in their lasting impact on the injured party—from a few weeks’ recovery to a comatic state to death. Whatever the type of TBI you or your loved one is dealing with, you want to work with an experienced Atlanta TBI law firm, you want to work with Evans Injury Attorneys.
