Brain Injury

Kansas City Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Brain injury is a serious matter. Even if it is “just” a concussion, injury to the brain can impact virtually any of your body’s functions because the brain and spinal cord are the main control center for the entire body. Sustaining a brain injury can negatively affect your quality of life and can lead to permanent changes in how you are able to function on a daily basis. If you or someone you love have sustained a brain injury and would like to discuss your legal options with a brain injury lawyer in Kansas City, contact the attorneys at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. for a free case evaluation.

Brain injuries are commonplace and can be devastating

People suffering a brain injury is, sadly, a very common thing, and all too many deaths are attributed to people sustaining such an injury. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published data stating that traumatic brain injuries (TBI) contributed to approximately 50,000 fatalities in 2013, with TBI-related hospital and emergency room visits totaling 2.8 million.

Causes of traumatic brain injury

Many circumstances can lead to suffering a TBI. The CDC found that the two most common causes of brain injuries are falling or being struck by or against an object (including striking an object such as a dashboard or steering wheel after being involved in a car accident). Secondary and other causes of TBI can include:

  • Traffic accidents
  • Stroke
  • Being a victim of violence
  • Sports-related injuries

Signs of brain injury

Someone could have a brain injury even if they do not have any open head wounds. Some signs of TBI to be on the lookout for are:

  • Incessant headache
  • Confusion
  • Changes in speech (slurring, disfluency, etc.)
  • Bruising beneath the eyes or behind the ears (indicate internal bleeding)
  • Blood flowing out of the nose, eyes, or ears

Brain injury precautions and first aid

If you suspect someone has suffered a brain injury, find a way to get medical help immediately such as by calling an ambulance. The Mayo Clinic suggests that, while you wait for help to arrive, you avoid moving the injured person in case the spinal column has been injured. However, if the injured person is bleeding heavily, gently apply pressure to stop the bleeding. Keep a close eye on the person to ensure that they continue to breathe until medical professionals can intervene. If the person stops breathing and you are certified to do so, perform CPR until help is on scene.
