Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries
TBIs are classified into three levels of severity:
Mild TBIs—also known as concussions—may cause brief unconsciousness, confusion, and memory problems. Most people recover from the effects of concussions within hours or days.
Moderate TBIs can cause unconsciousness that lasts for a few minutes to a few hours. Confusion may last for several days or even weeks, and physical or cognitive impairments are often permanent.
Severe TBIs cause extensive damage to the brain, which can lead to prolonged periods of unconsciousness that last for months, years, or even indefinitely. Common conditions caused by severe TBIs include vegetative state, coma, and even death.
Moderate and severe TBIs require high-quality medical care and treatment. Our traumatic brain injury lawyers will work with your loved one to make sure he or she gets the required medical attention for the injury, while also preparing the case for trial.
