What is Traumatic Brain Injury?

Hypoxia, anoxia, and concussions are the three primary types of traumatic brain injuries.
Brain injuries are complex. They can cause lasting damage with few outward symptoms. There are three primary types of TBI:

  • Hypoxia: When the level of oxygen reaching the brain and other organs and tissues is reduced, this is known as hypoxia.
  • Anoxia: While hypoxia refers to a reduced level of oxygen, anoxia is a total absence of oxygen to the brain and other vital organs.
  • Concussions: A concussion typically results from trauma to the head or violent shaking. This type of trauma causes the brain to strike the skull. This movement can cause chemical changes in the brain.

Victims of TBI often experience long-term or permanent damage, which may include:

  • Personality changes
  • Short- or long-term memory loss
  • Frequent headaches
  • Insomnia or excessive sleepiness
  • Seizures
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Loss of balance
  • Communication difficulties
  • Vision or hearing impairment
Common Causes of TBI

Brain injuries can happen in a variety of circumstances. Trauma to the lungs in an accident can cause hypoxia or anoxia, while trauma to the head can result in mild to severe concussions. Victims of TBI may have been involved in auto, work, or construction accidents.

As a brain injury lawyer who has represented many victims of TBI, Mr. Kenison works carefully to secure the compensation victims need so they can focus on healing.

Victims of assault can also suffer from a TBI. Full-contact sports like boxing or football can increase your risk for brain injuries. In other cases, oxygen deprivation may occur while under professional medical care. This could take place during a surgery if a nurse or doctor fails to adequately monitor a patient’s vitals. Cases of TBI involving doctor or nurse negligence are considered medical malpractice.

Compensation for TBI Victims

If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury due to another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. This could include compensation for:

  • Missed work and lost wages during recovery or loss of income due to an inability to return to work indefinitely
  • Pain and suffering
  • Onset of lasting neurological or emotional disorders, changes, or instability
  • Impact on relationships with loved ones
  • Ongoing medical care and rehabilitation

"My husband was in a Motorcycle accident on June 11, 2014. He was seriously injured and spent several weeks in a trauma unit and 4 weeks in a rehab facility after several surgeries. I called John Kenison the day after the accident and he walked me through the difficult process of how to handle hospital bills and how to contact the Insurance companies involved. My husband was out of work for 4 months and Kenison Law was able to help us recover all loss wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. They are a caring law firm and are able to explain complex information during a vehicle difficult situation. I would highly recommend this law office." M. H.
