What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injuries are usually sustained when an individual’s head is struck by a sudden and strong force, or when an individual’s brain is pierced by an object. The serious neurological damage that results from these injuries is often life-changing and may become manifest in a number of different symptoms. While these injuries often result from serious car accidents, they may also result from medical malpractice. When medical malpractice results in a traumatic brain injury, victims may be eligible to seek compensation from the responsible hospital or practitioner.
