Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) happen to thousands of residents in New Mexico every year. Brain injuries can come in the form of concussions or contusions. All brain injuries, however are unique depending on the person. The brain reacts in several different ways depending on the amount of force from the impact and the type of force that was involved in the impact. All areas of the brain, multiple areas of the brain, or just one area can be impacted due to a traumatic injury. If you are currently experiencing a TBI, contact us to schedule a free consultation
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by blows to the head or other traumatic injury to the head. TBI’s can and sometimes do cause brain damage. The force of impact is what will determine the amount of damage and the nature of the injury. Falls, vehicle-related crashes, gunshot wounds domestic violence, assault, explosive blasts and combat injuries suffered by active-duty military personnel, sports injuries (soccer, football, boxing, etc.) whether in youth or as an adult can cause serious permanent changes to the brain.
There are two types of brain injuries: primary and secondary. A primary TBI means the damage is immediate, while a secondary TBI means damage occurs gradually over the course of hours, days, or weeks. Secondary brain injuries are typically caused by the brain reacting to the initial head trauma. If you’ve suffered secondary damage over a specific timespan, you should still consult with a New Mexico traumatic brain injury lawyer. It isn’t too late to reference the initial trauma in your case.
