What Causes Brain Injuries?

Brain injuries have two main causes:

  • The interruption of the oxygen supply to the brain. Brain injuries caused by oxygen depletion, known as anoxic brain injuries, are characteristic of certain birth injuries, swimming or diving accidents, birth injuries, and surgical accidents involving anesthesia.
  • Trauma, usually caused by a blunt force or by a sudden impact. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are commonly the result of serious motor vehicle or motorcycle accidents, truck collisions, untreated aneurysms, construction or workplace accidents, or any other forceful impact to the head.

We Have Extensive Experience in Brain Injury Litigation

Serious brain damage presents special challenges in litigation. Accurately assessing the extent of the injury, treatment options, long-term prognosis, and impact on the quality of life for the victim and their family can be difficult, particularly with closed head injuries where symptoms can be subtle and the effects delayed. Despite these challenges, our expertise in establishing proof of damages in serious head injury cases represents a major advantage to the families of traumatic or anoxic brain injury victims.

Our forensic medical experts and staff work with our clients’ treating physicians to accurately assess the extent of their injuries, as well as the prospects for recovery or the need for future surgeries. We also work with economists, rehabilitation therapists, and home nursing professionals to determine the cost of long-term care and treatment.

Our Raleigh brain injury lawyers at Edwards Kirby are committed to fighting for the best possible outcomes for victims and their families. Call (919) 335-7005 to learn more.
