Types of Traumatic Brain Injury

There are many types of traumatic brain injuries. Some like a concussion heal fairly quickly. Others may last a lifetime.

Penetrating Injury

A penetrating brain injury is when something penetrates the skull usually causing bleeding on the brain.

Closed Head Injury

A closed head injury is where the brain is injured but the skull is not penetrated. There are several types of closed head injuries including: 

Diffuse Axonal Injury

Can be caused by a strong rotation of the head such as a car accident. The injury happens when the unmoving brain develops tears in brain structure including torn nerve tissue

Coup-Contrecoup Injury

This injury happens when the brain moves inside the skull striking the interior part of the skull then striking the opposite side of the skull causing brain contusions. A sudden deceleration from a vehicle accident can cause the brain to move forwards and backwards within the skull causing injury.

“Best Decision I Could Have Made”

 Deciding to use Mr. Howerton to help me with my case was the best decision I could have made. After suffering a mild traumatic brain injury as a result of a car accident, I found myself spending so much time trying to deal with all of the accident related paperwork, calls, correspondence, etc. that I didn’t have the time, much less the money, to take care of my medical needs. When the deadline for finalizing the claim approached and I was still not better, I contacted Mr. Howerton. He took over for me and had my case settled (at full policy limits) with both parties in just a couple of months.
