Maryland Brain Injury Lawyer
Catastrophic Head Injuries in Maryland
The brain is without a doubt one of the most important parts of the human body. Some injuries can be painful and require lasting care, but the brain is particularly slow to heal and cannot completely regenerate when severe damage is done. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur in the form of a severe concussion, or as a result of a puncture wound or laceration.
When an accident victim suffers a severe blow to the head, the brain can become bruised. Hemorrhaging and bleeding of the brain, as well as swelling and pressure on the brain, can result in restricted blood flow and irreversible loss of brain cells. Puncture wounds and other direct damage to the brain can also result in permanent damage.
Symptoms of TBI
Severe concussions can generally be classified as TBI. If an accident victim falls unconscious for more than a day, their brain injury could be moderate to severe according to the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). Symptoms of brain injury include headache, dizziness, nausea, disorientation, memory loss, unconsciousness, or a coma. Severe cases can result in temporary or permanent memory loss, reduced mental capacity, or a vegetative state.
