Causes of Serious Brain Injuries and Brain Damage (Traumatic Brain Damage Lawsuits)
Serious brain injuries can occur through traumatic impact to the head caused by an automobile accident, serious fall, falling object, construction accident, accidental gun shot, boating accident, or a vicious attack. Severe trauma to the head can cause the brain to move inside the skull and injure the brain. The skull typically protects the brain from injury, but because the inside of the skull is rough a traumatic event that causes the brain to move or to swell inside the skull can cause the brain to press up against the skull and cause serious brain damage.
Types of Brain Injuries and Brain Damage
Severe brain injuries can result in unconsciousness, vegetative states, limited capacity, or a coma that can last for days, weeks, months, years, or are permanent. More severe brain injuries can result in brain death and death. A coma is a state in which the person seems to be asleep but cannot be woken up and does not respond to stimuli or offer any reaction. A person can remain in a coma for days, weeks, months, even years, and in some cases never come out of the coma.
A Vegetative state is where the person is unable to react with the environment although he or she can still feel and recognize stimuli. The body of someone in this state will still react to sensations by way of perspiration, heart rate, etc. but the patient my not react outwardly. If this condition lasts for more than one month, it is known as a persistent vegetative state.
A limited capacity state is where a person that has suffered a traumatic brain injury is no longer in a vegetative state or coma. However, as the name suggests, responses from the person does not have the brain or neurological capacity that they had prior to the brain injury. Reasoning, movement, and other basic functions or emotions are no longer available. It can take years of therapy and medical treatment to recover all or part of the person's abilities.
Medical Malpractice Severe Brain Injury Lawsuits
Severe brain damage can also be caused by a lack of oxygen getting to the brain, a hemorrhage inside the brain, or damage to the skull. These serious brain injury claims can occur because of medical negligence when careless health care providers do not provide proper monitoring of patients, prescribe incorrect drug combinations, do not recognize fetal distress, or fail to recognize a patient has stopped breathing. Through drug interactions or respiratory failure, lack of oxygen to the brain can cause severe and permanent brain injuries.
