Types of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries include many different forms of damage to the brain, including

  • Hypoxic and anoxic brain injuries (commonly the result of medical malpractice); and
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

Examples of brain injuries:

  • Hypoxia: Hypoxia is a medical term used to describe insufficient oxygen in tissue, and it may affect the entire body, or specific regions like the brain. Generally, a person suffers a hypoxic brain injury when their brain does not receive a sufficient amount of oxygen. This may occur in cases of drowning, electrocution, cardiac arrest, or stroke, and it may also be caused by medical negligence involving failures to diagnose, anesthesia errors, and surgical errors, among others.
  • Anoxia: Both hypoxia and anoxia refer to a lack of oxygen; however, anoxic brain injuries involve a complete lack of oxygen to the brain, often resulting in severe brain damage and permanent disability. Anoxic brain injuries can be caused by the same factors as hypoxic brain injuries, and are common in birth injury cases involving infant brain damage. Some examples include failures to perform C-sections, poor fetal monitoring, and improper response to fetal distress.
  • Trauma: Traumatic brain injuries are a type of acquired brain injury, meaning they are not hereditary or congenital, and instead are caused by trauma to the brain. Traumatic injuries resulting from medical mistakes can also damage the brain. This may include obstetrical errors caused by vacuums, forceps, or cranial compression. A direct head injury is not necessary for a person to have suffered a TBI. For example, explosions and whiplash injuries can both cause TBI even without obvious signs of physical injury to the head because the brain can rapidly accelerate and decelerate within the skull under these forces.

Brain injuries have many different causes. In terms of personal injury cases, some of the most common include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Premises accidents (i.e. falls and falling objects)
  • Construction accidents / workplace injuries
  • Electric Shock / Electrocution
  • Medical malpractice / birth injuries
  • Drowning accidents
  • Defective products
  • Toxic exposure

Brain Injuries from Medical Malpractice

Brain injuries arising from medical malpractice are also common forms of acquired brain injury. Typically, they involve oxygen deprivation and brain cell death, though they may at times result from head trauma during childbirth. In any case, brain damage is a form of brain injury, and medical providers who cause them by failing to meet their duty of care can be held liable for damages victims and their families suffer.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, it is important to consult with attorneys who have ample experience handling serious injury claims and cases involving medical negligence.

Our team at The Becker Law Firm has this experience, and we have secured millions in compensation for victims and families devastated by brain injuries.
