What Are The Main Factors That Lead To Brain Damage?

Traumatic brain injuries normally come about when a force strikes the head. However, brain damage can come about in many ways including the following:

  • A blow to the head damages the cells immediately on contact as well as those in the immediate vicinity.
  • The head is rocked back and forth and brain is damaged by slamming into the skull at different points.
  • The brain is spun at high velocities and cells are damaged in the process.
  • An explosion causes cellular deformation and loss.
  • Bleeding, oxygen deprivation, or other nutrient loss kills or damages brain cells.
  • Swelling puts pressure on brain cells and damages or even destroys them.

There are other ways in which your brain cells can be damaged but these are some of the most common factors that lead to damage.

What Are The Criteria For Determining Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Many people use the terms concussion and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) interchangeably. In fact, they even have other phrases and words to label incidents and accidents that occur to someone around the head. However, it is important to be explicit when referring to TBI's. They arise when some force is exerted on the head either by accident or intentional act. Also, there must be damage that results to the brain as well as one of the following outcomes:

  • Loss of consciousness.
  • No memory regarding the traumatic event.
  • A skull fracture, seizure, or irregular brain wave because of the traumatic incident.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
