What is a brain injury caused by an accident?

Every year, more than a million individuals experience traumatic brain injuries. Commonly referred to as TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), this condition occurs when physical trauma leads to damage in the brain. It is important to understand that TBI can result from various types of accidents or injuries to the head.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can range from mild to severe, depending on the extent of damage inflicted on the brain. TBI can lead to physical, cognitive, emotional, and social challenges. The consequences can vary widely, from complete recovery to permanent disability, or even death. TBI refers to the harm caused to the brain due to a sudden physical force. The human brain comprises billions of microscopic fibers suspended in cerebrospinal fluid. While the outer surface of the skull is smooth, the inner surface features ridges and prominent bony structures. Impact with these inner surfaces of the skull can result in tearing and bruising, leading to brain damage.

Expertise is crucial when it comes to handling traumatic brain injuries. Fortunately, our personal injury law firm in Oregon is renowned for its exceptional professionalism and accomplishments. Our attorneys are highly qualified in handling brain injury cases and possess extensive knowledge of Oregon state law. No case is too trivial, as even a mild brain injury can result in profound changes in a person’s life, encompassing both evident and imperceptible cognitive, physical, and mental impairments. Assessing the appropriate settlement for our brain injury clients involves grappling with the complex task of quantifying the physical, mental, social, and emotional damages endured by the victim and their family. Nonetheless, at Strong Law, we are experienced in navigating brain accident and injury cases, dedicated to providing you with comprehensive representation and ensuring you receive the settlement you are entitled to for your brain injury.

Disabilities Resulting from Traumatic Brain Injury

The disabilities resulting from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) vary based on factors such as the severity of the accident or injury, the location of the injury, and the age and general health of the patient. Common disabilities associated with TBI include challenges with cognition (such as attention, calculation, memory, judgment, insight, and reasoning), sensory processing (including sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell), communication (both language expression and understanding), social function (such as empathy, compassion, interpersonal awareness, and social skills), and mental health (including depression, anxiety, personality changes, aggression, acting out, and social inappropriateness).

Traumatic brain injury can have profound effects. Severe injuries can leave individuals in a long-term unresponsive state, often requiring extensive rehabilitation to maximize their function and independence. Even with mild TBI, the impact on a person’s life can be drastic. Changes in brain function can significantly affect their family, job, as well as their social and community interactions.

The top three causes of traumatic brain injuries are vehicle crashes, firearms, and falls. These incidents can lead to various mechanisms of accident or injury, resulting in brain damage. Some common mechanisms include open head injury, which involves a fracture or penetration of the skull; closed head injury, which occurs when the brain is injured without any external damage to the skull; and deceleration injury, which happens when the brain is forcefully compressed inside the skull. Other causes of brain injury include chemical/toxic exposure, hypoxia/anoxia (lack of oxygen), tumors, infections, and stroke. Each of these factors can contribute to the complexity and severity of traumatic brain injuries.

In Oregon, there are specific time limits for settling or filing a claim related to traumatic brain injuries. Generally, the statute of limitations is set at two years from the date of the injury. This means that if you fail to settle your brain injury claim or file a lawsuit within two years of the injury, you may permanently lose your rights to any potential monetary compensation.

Please note that this is not legal advice, and consulting with a professional attorney is recommended for accurate and up-to-date information regarding your specific situation.

We are a personal accident or injury law firm serving the entire state of Oregon. Our team of lawyers is located in Bend, Eugene, Medford, Grants Pass, Roseburg, and Portland.

"I would definitely recommend them."
Lindsey - Washington

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

Nick S

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

It is crucial to seek immediate medical attention if any of these symptoms are present after a head injury.

  • Alterations in eating or nursing patterns
  • Excessive crying
  • Irritability
  • Decreased attention span
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • feelings of sadness or depression

What exactly is a traumatic brain injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a debilitating condition that occurs when the brain sustains a severe blow or jolt to the head or body, typically resulting from a motor vehicle accident or other forceful impact. This can lead to various forms of brain damage, affecting cognitive, physical, and emotional functions. It is crucial to seek immediate medical attention and proper treatment to mitigate the long-term consequences associated with this type of injury.

What exactly is a closed head injury?

A traumatic brain injury, often referred to as TBI, can occur as a result of a blow or jolt to the head, even if there is no visible fracture or penetration of the skull. This type of injury is known as a closed head injury because the skull remains intact, yet the brain sustains damage. It is important to note that the severity of a TBI can vary widely, ranging from mild concussions to more severe injuries with long-lasting effects. Regardless of the extent of the injury, proper diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation are crucial for recovery and minimizing potential complications.

What exactly is a concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury or closed head injury that occurs when a blow or jolt to the head causes the brain to shake inside the skull. This sudden movement can disrupt the normal functioning of the brain, leading to various symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, confusion, and memory problems. It is important to seek medical attention and take proper rest and care to allow the brain to heal following a concussion.

What are the primary causes of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)? Is it primarily closed head injuries or concussions?

Common causes of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or closed head injuries include motor vehicle collisions, physical assaults, sports-related accidents, whiplash incidents, or exposure to other strong forces that impact the head. These events can result in serious damage to the brain, affecting various cognitive functions and overall well-being. It is important to understand the potential risks associated with these situations and take necessary precautions to minimize the occurrence of such injuries.

What are the symptoms commonly linked to traumatic brain injuries, closed head injuries, or concussions?

Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries or closed head injuries can manifest in a wide range of physical, sensory, cognitive, or mental symptoms, depending on the severity and specific area of the injury. These symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, mood swings, and changes in behavior. It is important to note that the effects can vary greatly from person to person, and proper medical evaluation and treatment are crucial for managing and understanding these complex conditions.

How can you determine if you have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI), closed head injury, or concussion?

If you have experienced a traumatic accident, such as a car crash, pedestrian or bicycle accident, or a sports injury, it is important to be aware of the following symptoms. Additionally, take note of the last thing you remember before the accident and the first thing you remember after it. The Strong Law has collaborated with expert medical professionals including neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropsychologists. They advise that the longer the duration of memory loss before and after a traumatic event, the higher the likelihood of a traumatic brain injury. While medical providers often order a brain or cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assist in diagnosing traumatic brain injuries, it is possible for individuals to still have such injuries despite a negative or normal brain MRI.

What Are Your Hours?

Strong Law is open five days a week between 9am and 5pm. In addition, we offer after hours return calls, weekend calls, and online chat.

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
