Head and brain injuries can lead to severe medical challenges – you could end up with a permanent impairment or disability. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which may result from a severe blow to the head or a penetrating head injury, are responsible for approximately 150 U.S. fatalities each day. And, unfortunately, they’re on the rise. The CDC also found that TBI-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths increased by 53% from 2006 to 2014.
Whether you suffered a head or brain injury in a car accident or from a fall on another person’s property, our Warwick head and brain injury attorneys can handle your case. To find out more about us and our legal services, call (401) 751-8855 for a free consultation.
What Is a Head Injury?
A head injury is any type of damage to the skull, brain, or scalp. They can either be open or closed. An open injury enters your brain through a break in your scalp and skull. A closed injury is one that doesn’t penetrate your skull. Following are common types of brain injuries:
This occurs when blood starts collecting or clotting outside of the blood vessels. It becomes severe when it happens in the brain. Clots can cause pressure to build up inside your skull and result in permanent brain damage.
This is uncontrollable bleeding in your brain tissue (intracerebral hemorrhage) or the area surrounding your brain (subarachnoid hemorrhage). You might experience vomiting and headaches with a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Pressure could build up when any amount of blood fills your brain tissue.
This is the result of severe trauma to the head. Typically, a concussion heals without medical intervention and doesn’t cause long-term effects. However, repeated concussions can lead to permanent damage.
This is swelling of the brain. The skull can’t accommodate a swollen brain, which eventually leads to a buildup of pressure. Blood supply to the brain could become restricted and result in brain cell damage. Medication and surgery can alleviate the swelling; however, without appropriate treatment, an edema could be fatal.
It takes a significant impact to break someone’s skull and cause damage to the brain. When it does happen, the skull can’t bear the brunt of the trauma. That leaves the brain vulnerable to swelling, bleeding, and other types of injuries.
Diffuse Axonal Injury
This is a type of brain injury that causes damage to brain cells but doesn’t cause bleeding. When the brain cells become damaged, they can’t function as normal. A diffuse axonal injury is one of the most dangerous types and can result in permanent brain damage or death.
Situations that could result in head/brain injuries include:
- Bicycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Car accidents
- Dangerous products
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Motorcycle accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Slip and fall
- Workplace accidents
When you sustain a head injury, the symptoms you might experience include the following:
- Mild confusion
- Temporary ringing in the ears
- Loss of consciousness
- Trouble with balance or coordination
- Memory loss
Hire an Experienced Warwick Head/Brain Injury Attorney
At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we know the steps we need to take to build airtight cases for our clients. If another person is responsible for your head or brain injury, we will help you hold them accountable for their actions.
Choosing not to seek legal representation often backfires on accident victims. There’s a specific procedure you must follow and strict deadlines to adhere to. You also have to obtain sufficient evidence to prove who’s at fault for your injuries and to substantiate your expenses and losses. Most people don’t have the resources to conduct an investigation and secure the comprehensive evidence that’s needed.
Your Warwick head/brain injury attorney can build a strong legal case and file an insurance claim on your behalf. Insurance companies try to find reasons to deny claims or provide a lowball settlement offer. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, you could end up with compensation much lower than you deserve. We’ll make sure that doesn’t happen.
Our legal team works hard to protect our clients’ rights. You won’t have to worry about unfair treatment by the insurance company. We won’t let them take advantage of you. You can depend on us to fight assertively for the justice you deserve.
Crucial Evidence That Could Increase the Value of Your Case
When you hire us, the first thing we’ll do is thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your head/brain injuries. We’ll also obtain evidence that proves who caused it and that they should be financially responsible for your medical treatment and suffering.
Some of the evidence we’ll look for includes:
- Video surveillance of the incident
- Lost wage reports showing the total income you couldn’t earn because of your injury
- Statements from eyewitnesses
- Copies of your medical records, prescriptions, out of pocket costs, and other relevant documents
- Available insurance policy information
- Police/incident reports
- Photos from the scene of your injury, such as a hazard that led to your fall
You Can Recover Compensation for Your Damages
When you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, you can seek compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are expenses, such as:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Damage to vehicle and personal property
Non-economic damages are intangible losses, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
