What is a traumatic brain injury?

脑损伤有两种类型:获得性脑损伤(ABI)和创伤性脑损伤(TBI)。. 后天性脑损伤是指出生后发生的损伤导致大脑神经活动的改变. 外伤性脑损伤通常是由外部因素引起的,比如对头部的打击, 一个暴力的震动, or penetration of the skull.

Common types of brain injury

Some of the most common types of traumatic brain injury are:

脑震荡

脑震荡是一种相对较轻的创伤性脑损伤,通常伴随着短暂的无意识和当受害者恢复意识时的方向感. Common after effects include dizziness, difficulty maintaining balance, 头痛, and emotional issues like depression and anxiety. Once someone has had one concussion, 如果他们卷入另一起类似的事故,他们很容易受到更多的影响. 慢性创伤性脑病(CTE)可能是你听说过的关于NFL球员的一个术语,是反复脑震荡后发生的情况.

挫伤

A contusion is essentially a bruise on the brain. 这通常是由直接撞击引起的,可能会导致肿胀,需要手术来缓解压力.

脑弥漫性轴索

When the head is struck, 震, 或动摇, the brain can lag behind the movement of the skull, resulting in the brain hitting the interior of the skull. 弥漫性轴索损伤是一种脑损伤类型,约有一半的脑损伤发生,在车祸后最常见.

Coup-Contrecoup

当两侧大脑都受到损伤时,这被认为是一种意外伤害. 这种类型的损伤发生在冲击力太大时,大脑击中颅骨内部的一边,然后又击中另一边. 当这种情况发生, the victim can suffer impaired memory, 记忆丧失, loss of coordination, and trouble balancing.

Signs of brain injury

脑损伤的症状可能立即出现,有些可能在事故发生几天甚至几周后出现.

Possible Damages in a Brain Injury Lawsuit

Many types of brain injuries can lead to lawsuits. 一般, 决定因素是另一方当事人的疏忽是否造成了脑损伤. 在脑损伤案件中,原告不仅要证明被告对他们负有注意义务,而且违反了这一义务, 而且这种违反义务是原告损害赔偿的直接原因. 原告还必须提供表明其损害程度的证据,包括:

医疗费用

原告可以就脑损伤后立即和将来必要的医疗费用提起诉讼. Most traumatic brain injuries require immediate medical care; without treatment, potentially life-threatening complications may develop. A brain injury may also require extensive rehabilitation like physical therapy, 语言治疗, occupational therapy, and multiple surgeries.

损失的收入

A brain injury will require a long recovery time in most cases, 原告可以要求在此期间损失的工资作为人身伤害索赔.

财产损失

如果被告的疏忽也损害或毁坏了原告的任何个人财产, such as a vehicle in a 车祸, the plaintiff can claim repair or replacement costs as damages.

痛苦和折磨

审理脑损伤案件的陪审团将考虑专家证人的证词,以确定对原告身体疼痛的适当赔偿, 情感创伤, and mental anguish following a brain injury. 例如, 轻度脑震荡的原告可能会经历数周的剧烈头痛,直到症状消退. 另一名原告患有永久性残疾,不再能够独立工作或生活. 在这些例子中, 第二个原告的痛苦和痛苦的恢复可能比第一个原告要大得多. There are no caps on pain and suffering compensation in 伊利诺斯州.

惩罚性损害赔偿

如果被告的行为是严重疏忽或故意侵权,比如人身攻击, the jury may award punitive damages to further punish the defendant.
