Compensation for Brain Injuries in Wichita

One of the most devastating forms of bodily harm are those involving brain injuries. The extent of suffering and loss of functionality is the unfortunate result of brain damage injuries. There are a number of ways that this can commonly take place including:

  • Slipping and falling onto hard surfaces or against sharp, protruding objects
  • Hard blows, traumatic impacts or whiplash
  • Foreign objects penetrating into the skull such as bullets, rocks or any projectile
  • Transportation accidents such as car collisions or train wrecks
  • Heavy beatings and physical abuse
  • Explosions or any type of violent force
  • Medical Malpractice

What happens inside the skull can be particularly deceptive. Often the full extent of damage is not demonstrated until hours after an accident or trauma. The brain rests in a protective body of fluid within the skull. When trauma takes place the brain is forcefully impacted against a hard surface such as the skull or an outside object. The subsequent tissue damage creates inflammation and internal bleeding. As fluids accumulate they build up internal pressure. This can actually crush the brain within the skull. Without warning an individual can collapse unconscious or even die as this pressure mounts. For this reason it is critical that any trauma to the brain or head is taken seriously even if the victim appears fine shortly after the incident.
