The levels of traumatic brain injuries
The severity of your brain injury dictates how much compensation you receive from the negligent party. Brain injuries are judged on levels that include:
- Mild traumatic brain injuries — These injuries are described as any time you lose consciousness for a moment or are dazed briefly following an accident. Mild traumatic brain injuries might not show up on brain scans afterward, but they are still very dangerous. These milder brain injuries usually occur in accidents that involve falls or low-speed auto accidents .
- Moderate traumatic brain injuries — These injuries follow a non-penetrating blow to the brain, as when a person’s head has been violently shaken or jerked or the person sustains any serious trauma to the skull. Symptoms include extended loss of consciousness, confusion and a change in mood or personality that can last for months.
- Severe brain injuries — These occur when an injury penetrates the skull and physically damages brain tissue. These injuries not only jeopardize a person’s future well-being but may also prove to be instantly fatal.
