Brain injuries by the numbers

A brain injury is one of the most complex types of injury, pain and disorientation for people. No two brain injuries are precisely alike, just as the circumstances around them are different.

The brain is not even fully understood by medical science. However, we understand many of the discrete functions of parts of the brain, and even "mild" or "minor" injuries can cause problems getting through daily life or moving life goals forward.

Neuroscientists have identified several areas of the brain that indicate types of damage if they are injured. Many know that people may express a dominant side of the brain, and that is a real division of the organ itself.

The left side governs logical and analytical functions, as well as speech and language. Left-side injuries can cause problems with understanding and expression, as well as a slow logical thought process.

The right side is the home of creativity, imagination and emotional response. Damage may cause visual problems, altered creative thinking and an inability to put thoughts together into a bigger picture.

Diffuse brain injuries describe damage to both sides. Fatigue, confusion and slow thinking are commonly symptoms of a diffuse brain injury.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that more than 40 percent of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in the United States are caused by collisions, assaults or traffic accidents. Many victims of head injuries end up in their condition due to negligence or harm from another.

You have rights to fair compensation for treatment in the event of a harmful brain injury caused by another party. Your legal counsel can help you identify the proper course for establishing responsibility and getting the help you need.
