Your rights after closed or penetrating brain injuries

A severe Traumatic Brain Injury can lead to death or a disability that will last a lifetime. This is more common that you may realize, as 2.5 million people suffered from these types of injuries in 2010. When looking at injury-related deaths, it's estimated that about 30 percent of all people who pass away have a TBI.

That said, if you're injured in Texas and diagnosed with a TBI, you may have the right to seek financial compensation. After all, these injuries could leave you needing care for the rest of your life, and you could lose the ability to work. Both have a drastic financial impact that must be addressed.

There are two different types of TBIs, which are known as closed TBIs and penetrating TBIs. In some ways, penetrating injuries that break through the skull are much easier to spot and diagnose. The fact that there is an open wound and related tissue damage means that brain damage is more readily identified and treated.

A closed TBI, though, could have just as much of an impact on you, though the injury will be internal and therefore, far harder to diagnose. Many times, those who survive car accidents suffer from closed TBIs. While airbags and seat belts can keep you from exterior injuries, the quick deceleration of the body can cause damage to the brain as those forces are exerted on it. When the brain moves, it can be damaged by the skull itself, even when the skull does not appear injured.

If you've been injured and you want to know what steps you should take next, please look at our site now.
