Head Injury Lawyer, Serving Alabama
Generally speaking, there are two types of head injuries: closed head injury and open head injury. An open head injury occurs when the skull is punctured or penetrated by a foreign object, causing an obvious traumatic brain injury.
The symptoms of a closed head injury, in which the brain "bounces" against the skull due to force caused by an impact, are often much less obvious, including a sudden inability to think clearly or concentrate. Closed head injuries fall into four categories:
- Concussion injury
- Contusions or severe bruises
- Hemorrhaging or bleeding of the tissues surrounding the brain
- Hematomas or bleeding of the brain
These injuries are often caused by a sudden impact such as a motor vehicle accident, a fall suffered by a nursing home resident or hospital patient, and those suffered in construction accidents and other work site accidents.
Our Birmingham brain injury lawyers' goal is to use their extensive experience and resources to obtain full and fair damages on your behalf. We have close relationships with the region's leading neurologists, which help us understand the full extent of your concussion injury and the financial costs associated with the necessary medical treatment and ongoing care or rehabilitative plan.
