The most underreported, underdiagnosed, and underestimated head injury by far is a concussion or mild TBI. Many of these head injuries, also known as mild traumatic brain injuries or MTBI, are caused by a bump or jolt to the head. The injury to the brain results from the brain hitting the interior of the skull upon impact to the exterior of the head. It can also be caused by a fall that causes the head and brain to move back and forth. 15% of people with mild TBI have symptoms that last one year or more.
Common head injury case types:
- Concussions, which is the most common type of head injury
- Scalp wounds
- Skull wounds
- Vestibular dysfunction
- Sports-related traumatic brain injuries (In New York, each year about 4,000 children 19 and younger are hospitalized for mild TBI)
Due to the risk of lifetime complications, all head injury victims should seek to recover the full amounts they are due under the law. Lifetime treatment for head and traumatic brain injury can be costly, but the responsibility to cover these costs, where the injuries were caused by the negligence of another person or entity, falls on the negligent party involved in the accident. As the victim, you have the right to recover full and fair compensation for not only medical treatment but also pain and suffering. You need a head injury lawyer committed to vigorously represent you with integrity and compassion.
