Traumatic Brain Injuries
The subject of brain injury has taken a significant role in recent years. The issue has especially become prevalent in sports, with science providing groundbreaking research on the consequences of brain injuries. Studies have conclusively demonstrated how brain functions are affected by even mild impacts. This science has revolutionized the way these types of cases are presented in a court of law because brain injuries rare not visible and often are not correctly diagnosed, unlike a laceration or a broken bone that can be seen or evaluated with diagnostic equipment like an x-ray machine. More often than not, symptoms are entirely subjective rather than objective which makes it more difficult to establish proof of injury.
Brain injury, also known as traumatic brain injury, mild traumatic brain injury, or post-concussion syndrome, are the result of impact to the head, or jarring of the brain inside the head. Numerous methodologies have been developed over the years to classify brain injury on a continuum from mild to moderate to severe. Symptoms range the gamut from dizziness and numbness to vomiting, confusion, depression, anxiety amnesia, coma, and even death. The law can step in where brain injuries are the result of another party’s negligence or intentional conduct. Because of the nature of brain injuries, and the extensive and complicated medical framework necessary for establishing proof of brain injury in a court of law, it is fundamentally important that a victim of a brain injury seek competent legal counsel familiar with the most recent research and scientific evidence of brain injury.
