Riverdale Brain Injury Lawyers
Compassionate & Aggressive Representation Since 1988
There are two types of brain injuries: traumatic brain injury and acquired brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries occur when an external force traumatically injures the brain. Traumatic brain injury can be classified based on severity, mechanism (closed or penetrating head injury), or other features. Acquired brain injuries occur at the cellular level. They are most often associated with pressure on the brain. This can come from a tumor or neurological illness, such as a stroke.
There are many different causes of a brain injury, including:
- Auto accidents
- Sports injuries
- Jolt to the head that knocks it back and forth
- Metabolic disorders
- Deceleration injuries from getting hit at a high speed

Always See a Doctor After a Head Injury
Brain injuries often go undiagnosed at first, as emergency services focus and treat the obvious injuries such as bleeding and broken bones. However, there are ways to diagnosis and discover a brain injury. The services of a medical professional, such as a neuropsychologist or a neuropsychiatrist, can administer a comprehensive test to determine what amount, if any, of brain injury has occurred.
You should call emergency services if you or someone you love experiences an impact to the head and develops any symptoms of traumatic brain injury. Seek medical advice even if symptoms seem mild. Even after a visit to check for a head injury, you should immediately return to the emergency facility if you begin to get dizzy and/or begin to vomit.
