    Common Types of Brain Injuries

    Dealing with a brain injury can be challenging. If you receive a massive blow to the head, you can face severe consequences that can alter the course of your life forever. Some of the most common brain injuries a person can sustain during a car accident include the following:

    Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

    A massive blow to the head commonly causes traumatic brain injury (TBI). Blunt impact to the head can cause damage to the brain, which is only protected by the skull. TBI can also be caused by a powerful back and forth movement of the head or by penetrating injuries. The aftermath of TBI can be devastating, depending on the extent of the damage. Common symptoms of TBI include disorientation, vomiting, fatigue, trouble with memory, and thinking.

    Treatment for traumatic brain injuries will depend on the severity of your injury. In most cases, treatment involves therapy, social support, psychological treatment, and other types of recovery alternatives.

    Closed Head Injuries

    Closed head injuries happen when forceful trauma to the head causes damage to the brain but does not penetrate the skull. Closed head wounds can happen because of many disasters, such as slip and falls and sport-related injury accidents. Like TBIs common symptoms of CHIs include dizziness, vomiting, loss of consciousness, and more.

    Penetrating Injuries

    Unlike closed head injuries, penetrating injuries or open head injuries directly injure the brain when an object penetrates through the skull. For instance, a bullet wound could be an excellent example of a penetrating brain injury. These injuries can be devastating since the brain does not heal as other parts of the body do. Therefore, penetrating injuries are not only dangerous, but they can be life-threatening.

    What to Do After Suffering a Brain Injury in PA

    If you or a loved one experiences any of the symptoms associated with brain injuries, you should obtain immediate medical attention. After a physician has assessed your situation, you should seek immediate legal assistance. Retaining the legal services of an experienced and skilled personal injury attorney can help you hold the at-fault party accountable for all your losses. Additionally, an experienced lawyer can help you build a strategy to achieve the best possible result in your case.

    Most brain injury claims are based on a negligence theory. This means the plaintiff files a complaint against their wrongdoer claiming what negligent actions they committed. However, to have success in a negligence-based personal injury claim, you have the burden of proving the following factors:

    1. The defendant owed you a duty of care.
    2. The defendant did not meet (“breached”) his duty of care.
    3. The plaintiff was injured due to the defendant’s breach.
    4. The plaintiff suffered damages which can be recovered in court.

    Keep in mind; you should not wait too long to file your claim. There are legal deadlines every plaintiff must meet. If you fail to comply with these legal deadlines or “statutes of limitations,” you could miss your chance to seek compensation.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
