Any accident that bumps, strikes, or jolts the head could translate into a brain injury. If the brain moves around and hits the inside of the skull, it could suffer an injury that causes brain cell damage or death. The brain could also sustain an injury through a penetrating or open head wound, as well as through an incident that shakes the head enough to tear the brain stem. Brain injuries through accidents are typically traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. TBIs stem from external impacts to the head and brain.
Other types of accidents, such as unintentional drowning or medical malpractice, can cause acquired brain injuries. These are injuries that impact the brain internally. Anything that cuts off the supply of oxygen or blood to the brain, for example, could cause an acquired brain injury. At Jensen Phelan Law Firm, P.C., we can help clients after all types of accidents that cause brain injuries in Prescott Valley.
