The brain is well protected by the skull, but impact against the skull can result in brain injuries. Like spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries can be unpredictable. The force of the blow does not dictate the severity of damage, so even seemingly mild impact can cause extensive, possibly irreversible damage.

Accident victims who have suffered traumatic brain injuries should not bear the financial burden of recovery. The personal injury attorneys at Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC provide the aggressive representation you need to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injury and Their Causes

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) often result from the collision of the brain against the skull. Events that may cause such a collision include:

Types of TBI that may result from brain-skull impact include:

  • Concussion
  • Brain contusion (bruise)
  • Edema (swelling)
  • Diffuse axonal injury (DAI)

Accident impact can also lead to penetration injuries where accident debris or another foreign object penetrates through the skull and touches or lodges in the brain.

Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury

The brain controls every part of your body, so the effects of traumatic brain injury may be experienced throughout your body. Common TBI effects include:

  • Loss or changes in cognitive/mental abilities, such as:
    • Amnesia
