Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries often happen due to violent accidents. The circumstances of the accident and why it happened at all will be crucial while building your case and determining liability.

Common causes of brain injuries in Providence can include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical malpractice

We can work with accident reconstruction experts to uncover the true cause of your accident if it is disputed by the defense. Such experts can find the smallest details that other investigators might overlook. When they are done with their work, the accident will be “reconstructed” for use in and out of court.

Types of Brain Injuries

Thanks to our positive reputation throughout Rhode Island, our brain injury lawyers can easily network with medical experts like neurologists and neurosurgeons when working on a complex brain injury case. This added assistance helps us understand the type of brain injury that you have suffered. This knowledge is important for building your case and better arguing why you deserve as much compensation as you do.

Various types of brain injuries include the following and more:

  • Concussions
  • Chiari I malformations
  • Diffuse axonal injuries
  • Memory loss issues
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Vision or hearing loss

Long-Term Effects of Brain Injuries

The brain is considered the most complex organ in the human body. It is comprised of countless neurons, synapses, and other intricate parts, all interconnected and working together. Due to its complexity, damage to the brain can create unpredictable, long-lasting effects. For example, damage to one lobe in the brain can create completely different consequences than similar damage to a different lobe.

Long-term effects often seen in brain injury cases include:

  • Memory loss
  • Balance issues
  • Inability to learn new things
  • Inability to focus
  • Insomnia or oversleeping
  • Chronic migraines
  • Sensory loss
  • Irritability or depression

The long-term effects that you are suffering from or are likely to suffer in the future are instrumental to your brain injury claim. This is one of the reasons why it is so important to work with a law firm that will take an individualized approach to your TBI. At Karns & Kerrison, we never use a cookie-cutter method in our work.

Damages You Can Recover in a TBI Claim

Your brain injury claim could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. It depends on the severity of your brain injury and how much of your normal life and happiness it has taken from you. We have the power and experience needed to handle TBI claims of any value. We don’t get intimidated just because the defense is throwing around its resources just to avoid paying a fair amount to our client.

Damages that add to the value of a brain injury claim can include:

  • Medical treatment costs
  • Future medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced income earning ability
  • Permanent disability complications
  • Lowered enjoyment of life
  • Shortened life expectancy
  • Loss of independence
