What You Should Know About Brain And Spinal Injuries

Brain and spine injuries are a major problem here in the United States. Each year, more than 12,000 Americans are impacted by spinal cord injuries. An even greater number—2.8 million—are impacted by a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year, with a reported 50,000 deaths annually.

A majority of these injuries occur because of collisions, accidents, and slip-and-fall incidents. Victims with brain and spinal injuries often face permanent, life-altering disabilities. They and their families also face the challenge of paying for medical bills and continued medical care, often bereft of the victim’s work income.

What causes brain and spinal injuries?

Any collision or accident has the potential to cause a brain or spinal cord injury. Even in situations where the back or head do not make physical contact with anything, the force of a vehicle-on-vehicle impact, for instance, can cause neck injuries through a condition known as whiplash.

In other types of accidents—such as a bicyclist who hits the pavement after being hit by a car—direct force impact on the skull can cause a concussion, a brain injury where the force of impact causes the brain to make physical contact with the skull's interior wall.

What is the long-term impact of these injuries?

Damage to the central nervous system of the body can be long-lasting, if not permanent. When you break a bone, tear a ligament, or have a cut, the human body slowly heals itself by growing new cells to replace the damaged ones. This process is helped along by medical care, which ensures the bone is set in the right place and that the cut is cleaned and dressed to avoid infection. The brain and spine, however, are far slower to heal, and some parts of each do not heal at all.

Long-Term Impact Of Concussions

Most non-athletes do not suffer multiple concussions in their lifetime, but that does not mean they are safe from the consequences of brain trauma. Just one head injury can be enough to cause serious issues. When a collision occurs, the brain hits the inside of the skull, causing the brain tissue to swell in response. This swelling causes the brain tissue to tighten, stopping the flow of blood. This can lead to a stroke that permanently damages a part of the brain. Other types of clots can also form.

Long-Term Impact Of Spine Injuries

The spine is the mechanism by which the human brain relays instructions to every other part of your body. If individual nerves are surface streets, the spine is the I-110—a super highway that connects all those roads. An injury to the back has the potential to sever the analogical equivalent of on-ramps and off-ramps to that freeway, which can have a number of negative consequences, including tetraplegia or quadriplegia—the loss of use of the legs, arms, or both.

What is the financial impact of these injuries?

The medical costs of brain and spine injuries can exceed those of other types of physical personal injuries. Not only does work on the spine or brain often require medical specialists, but the long-term impacts of these injuries also mean that the victim may need some form of medical care or treatment for the remainder of their life. The cost of this care must often be shouldered by their families, who—in the event that the victim cannot work—has also lost the income they may have been contributing.

No family should have to go through financial hardship when it was the negligence or action of another individual or party that caused the brain / spine injury of their loved one. As a Los Angeles brain injury attorney, we advise you contact us here at Blair & Ramirez LLP for a free consultation.
