Why Retain an Attorney?

Working with a Tempe personal injury lawyer after a brain injury could transform your claim. Your lawyer will make sure you avoid common mistakes, such as failing to file within your statute of limitations, as well as look out for your best interests during insurance negotiations. A lawyer will not accept a settlement until it matches your damages – which can be immense for the average brain injury case. Your lawyer can also answer pressing questions you have about your case while you undergo medical treatments. Most importantly, your lawyer can make you feel like you are not alone during the brain injury claims process.

What Are the Types of Brain Injuries?

At David Shapiro Law, PLLC, we recognize the highly complex nature of a brain injury. We know the brain could sustain many injuries that affect a survivor for life in an injury accident. From the most common brain injury, a concussion, to more severe contusions or edemas (swelling), the brain could suffer many injuries in a serious accident. Doctors categorize brain injuries into four general types.

  1. Closed head injury. A closed head injury does not break or penetrate the skull but still impacts the brain. It describes a blow or bump to the head that bruises or jolts the brain without compromising the skull. Examples include concussions and coup-contrecoup injuries.
  2. Open head injury. An open head injury involves damage to the skull as well as the brain. An example is a penetrating head injury, such as a gunshot wound. Open head injuries can involve complications such as bone fragments in the brain.
  3. Traumatic brain injury. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs from a source of external trauma to the head, such as blunt force trauma in a motor vehicle accident or fall. Any type of external trauma could cause a TBI if it bruises or injures the brain.
  4. Acquired brain injury. An acquired brain injury (ABI) happens from internalized trauma, such as a birth complication cutting off oxygen to a baby’s brain. ABIs can happen from swimming pool accidents, exposure to toxic substances, or medical malpractice.

If you or someone you love has any type of brain injury after an accident in Tempe, find out how we can help you file a civil claim. You may have grounds to go up against one or more defendants in pursuit of financial compensation with a TBI or ABI. Common accidents involved in these claims are car crashes, slip and falls, abuse, violence, explosions, and struck-by objects.
