Brain bruising and contusion lawsuit lawyers

The head and brain are especially vulnerable to injury during car accidents. The momentum of the accident propels a person’s body, and the car creates a tight space in which that momentum stops.

Types of Brain Bruising from Car Accidents

 Car accidents can result in bruising and bleeding on the brain, known as contusions. A car accident might result in a single contusion or multiple contusions. One type of serious contusion injury is coup-contrecoup. This refers to a double-contusion, in which a person experiences bruising or bleeding on both sides of the brain.

The brain is a floating part of the body, and it moves when the skull undergoes a serious impact. Under severe force, the brain will be injured at the point of impact and also on the opposite side, where the brain strikes the side of the skull. A serious car accident can lead to this type of head trauma and double brain contusion.

Causes and Treatment of Brain Bruising

In a car accident, the cause of brain bruising is typically a blow to the head. Most brain contusions occur because a victim hit his or her head against the steering wheel, car window, dashboard, roof, or ground. Airbag deployment might also lead to a serious head injury and brain bruising.

It is also possible for a person to develop a brain contusion not from a direct blow during the accident but from the jolting of the body during impact. If the brain is shaken violently as the head becomes jolted, a person can develop brain bruising.

Minor bruising and contusions can heal on their own with minimal medical intervention. Serious and large contusions can require surgery. Untreated contusions can be life-threatening.

Compensation for Brain Bruising and Contusions

Brain bruising can be a serious injury entitling car accident victims to compensation. A car accident attorney can explain the options available to you, including a lawsuit for your uncovered expenses and your pain and suffering.
