What Is Considered a Brain Injury?
A brain injury occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. The damage can occur inside the skull or on the surface of the brain, and it can vary in severity. The most common types of brain injuries are concussions, which can cause temporary loss of consciousness and/or memory loss. Other types of brain injuries include skull fractures, bleeding in the brain, and damage to the brain's nerves, muscles, and tissues.
Common Causes of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can be caused by many different types of accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, and more. The most common cause of brain injuries, however, is auto accidents.
Symptoms of Brain Injuries
If you suffer a traumatic brain injury, you will likely experience a number of symptoms. Symptoms can vary from person to person and can even vary from accident to accident. Some common symptoms of brain injuries include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Loss of memory
- Blurred vision
- Double vision
- and more.
If you hit your head in an accident and you suffer from any of these symptoms, you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Even if you do not experience any symptoms, you should still seek medical attention if you have suffered a blow to the head in an accident.
The Damage a Brain Injury Can Cause
A brain injury can cause a wide range of permanent disabilities, including difficulties with:
- Speech or communication
- Impulse control
A traumatic brain injury can also cause a coma. A coma is a state of unconsciousness that lasts for more than one day. If a coma lasts for more than a week, the chances of survival drop dramatically.
Recovering Compensation for Brain Injuries
If you suffer a traumatic brain injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Louisville brain injury lawyer can help you recover the compensation you need to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Do I need an attorney to file a car accident injury claim?You do not need an attorney to handle your claim. However, if you were injured and have accrued medical expenses, the potential for future medical expenses, have missed work, have experienced pain and suffering, and/or have suffered damage to your vehicle, it is widely recommended that you have legal representation. Having a professional on your side to take care of all of the details of your claim will put you in the best legal position possible for negotiation or litigation purposes. It is a well-known fact that injury victims with representation obtain better results in claims than those who try to manage the process on their own.
Should I talk to an insurance adjuster about my car accident or motorcycle accident claim?We recommend that you do not. While these individuals may sound friendly and accommodating, it is important to remember that they do not work for you; they work for their employer. They have been trained to interact with you with one goal in mind: to limit their payout or deny it altogether. We recommend that you do not make any recorded statements, do not agree to any settlement offer, or sign anything provided by an adjuster. Your first step should be to discuss your case with one of our personal injury attorneys to get proper advice about what is best for you, not what is best for the insurer.
Should I get medical attention after a car accident even if I think I’m okay?Injuries from cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other traffic accidents may not manifest right away. They often do not show up for hours or even days after an accident. That is why we recommend that you seek treatment as soon as possible following an accident. That way you will be advised of what to expect will receive proper treatment and/or instructions as to what to do and will establish a medical record that can be used to support your claim. More Questions Concerning Accident Claims & Lawsuits
What should I do after a motorcycle accident?
Assess your situation to determine if you are in harm’s way or seriously injured. If possible, get to safety after which you can call 911. Don’t remove your helmet if wearing one or other protective gear. Wait for medical personnel to arrive so as not to aggravate any possible injuries you may have. Even if you believe you are not injured, it is recommended that you be checked out by a doctor. At the time of the accident, if possible, gather as much evidence as you can. This can include photos, police reports, and insurance and contact information of the other driver, as well as the contact information of any witnesses. Call Schuler Law Office as soon as you can to get advice and counsel.
These same steps apply to car accidents, truck accidents, and any other type of traffic accident.
