As the control center of the body, the brain is integral to a host of essential functions, including information processing, memory, speech, emotions, and even breathing. Any injury to the brain can have catastrophic results, affecting a person’s ability to perform daily tasks, earn a living, care for themselves, and relate to others. This type of injury can also result in severe financial hardship; the costs of treating a brain injury can reach into the tens of thousands of dollars or more depending on the severity of the injury.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury in Birmingham because of someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or intentional actions, Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton, LLP would like to hear about your case.

Types of Brain Injuries

There are two types of brain injuries: those caused by trauma and those caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain. Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are the result of a forceful blow to the head that causes bruising or bleeding in the brain. Because brain cells are not regenerative like other types of cells, all brain injuries – even those considered “mild” – should be taken seriously and require prompt medical attention. Concussions are the most common type of TBI.

Non-traumatic brain injuries are the result of other causes besides a blow to the head. The brain can suffer an injury when its supply of oxygen is significantly reduced (hypoxia) or completely cut off (anoxia). When the brain does not have enough oxygen, it cannot carry out essential functions and brain cells will begin to die after about 4 or 5 minutes, causing irreversible brain damage. Infections such as encephalitis can also cause damage to brain cells.

Common causes of non-traumatic brain injuries include:
