Traumatic brain injury, also called TBI, occurs when the brain is injured by a sudden force or trauma. The brain can be driven into the side of the skull by a sudden blow or by the force of shaking or whiplash. In either case, the brain can suffer bruising and swelling, and in some cases the impact will be sufficient to tear blood vessels, causing intracranial bleeding.

Traumatic Brain Injuries – An Overview

Brain injuries can take many forms, although most begin with a sudden impact or trauma to the head. Bruising or swelling may follow if the brain is pushed against the inside of the skull.

Penetrating head injuries are those that involve a fracture to the skull.

Closed head injuries are those that occur without damaging or fracturing the skull. Such injuries can occur in whiplash incidents, or by any event that causes the head to shake violently. Following a closed-head TBI it is essential that the patient is carefully examined and monitored to ensure the brain does not swell without treatment.

The Effects Of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are classified as mild, moderate or severe and these phrases are very misleading as it is a fact that persons with a “mild” brain injury can have cognitive and behavioral issues that have a devastating effect on their lives. Mild TBI may also be known as concussion, minor head trauma, minor TBI, minor brain injury or minor head injury.


Symptoms of mild TBI include:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Visual disturbances
  • Memory loss
  • Poor attention or concentration
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Dizziness and/or loss of balance
  • Irritability and/or emotional disturbances
  • Depression
  • Seizures
  • Nausea
  • Sense of smell impairment
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Mood swings or mood changes
  • Confusion

Symptoms of severe TBI include:

  • Lack of concentration
  • Confusion
  • Mental agility
  • Forgetfulness
  • Impulsiveness
  • Executive function
  • Speech and language problems
  • Slurred speech
  • Sensory impairment
  • Impaired vision
  • Hearing loss or disturbances including tinnitus
  • Epilepsy
  • Sleep disorders
  • Aggression
  • Disinhibition

Spinal cord injuries, including paraplegia and quadriplegia, can be caused by anything from car or sporting accidents to falls and work-related accidents. Some spinal cord injuries are temporary and can benefit from rehabilitation. Other injuries result in permanent paralysis from the injury site down.

A spinal cord injury is likely to be a catastrophic life event, leading to long-term health problems including paralysis – all of which are likely to cost astronomic sums of money. Clearly, anyone experiencing a spinal cord injury needs expert legal representation to help them access the funds they will surely need.

The High Cost Of Spinal Cord Injuries

The Homampour Law Firm will take the time to carefully evaluate the full cost of your medical treatment and care. We know the high price of specialist medical care, and we understand that, as the treatment of spinal injuries evolves and improves, the cost of treatment may increase – so any evaluation of damages must account for the cost of future medical treatments.

Only 52% of people affected by spinal cord injuries are covered by private medical insurance, so many people will need to find funds by other means.

Causes Of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are caused by a wide variety of factors, including motor vehicle accidents, sporting accidents, disease, slip and fall accidents, construction accidents and medical negligence.

Types Of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are caused by an insult to the spinal cord. This can be caused by external physical forces or internal forces such as internal bleeding. Spinal cord injuries frequently result in paralysis.

Paraplegia is caused by damage to the thoracic, lumbar or sacral sections of the spinal cord. People with paraplegia often lose movement and feeling in the lower parts of their body – typically any area below the waist.

Quadriplegia is caused by damage to the cervical section of the spinal cord. People with quadriplegia often lose movement and sensation in upper and lower parts of their body – with all limbs impaired.
