Brain injuries can be a traumatizing event for not only a victim, but for the victim’s family as well. These life altering injuries can be an enormous strain on a family, both emotionally and financially.

At BG Law we are here to help. Our seasoned catastrophic injury attorneys have experience representing clients in brain and head injury cases. A North Kansas City brain injury lawyer will provide the legal help you need while you focus on recovering from your injury.

Types of Brain Injuries

There are two different types of brain injuries a victim can sustain:

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)

An acquired brain injury can be the result of a stroke, tumors, epilepsy, infections, hypoxia, anoxia, and exposure to toxic chemicals amongst other causes.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

These are caused by an external force resulting in head trauma or the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head. TBIs are classified under two different types: open and closed injuries. An open brain injury occurs when an object penetrates the scalp and enters the brain. A closed brain injury occurs when the brain is knocked against the skull.

No matter what type of brain injury you suffer from, a dedicated North Kansas City attorney could help you file a legal claim for compensation.

Symptoms of Brain Damage

Both types of brain injuries disrupt the brain’s normal functioning and can result in mild, moderate, or severe brain damage.

Mild and moderate brain damage can result in a number of symptoms, including but not limited to:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of balance and/or coordination
  • Nausea

Severe brain damage can result in those symptoms and additional symptoms, including but not limited to:

  • Neurological issues
  • Vision problems
  • Paralysis
  • Behavioral changes
  • Disruption to the cognitive process

Seeking Compensation After a Brain Injury

Recoverable damages associated with a brain injury can include:

  • Loss of wages
  • Hospital bills
  • Physical therapy
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of time with family
  • Loss of the care or guidance of a parent
  • Reduced earning possibilities
  • Medical care
  • Care giving services

A diligent brain damage lawyer in North Kansas City could help you seek compensation for the full extent of your losses.

Types of Head Injuries

A head injury is any trauma that injures the scalp, skull, or brain. The injury may be only a minor bump on the skull or a serious brain injury.

A head injury can be either closed or open (penetrating).

Closed Head Injury

A closed head injury means you received a hard blow to the head from striking an object, but the object did not break the skull.

Open Head Injury

An open, or penetrating, head injury means you were hit with an object that broke the skull and potentially entered the brain.
