Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Some of the most common traumatic brain injuries that people experience are:
The most common type of traumatic brain injury, concussions occur when there is a blow to the head or body, or from whiplash-like injuries. The force causes the brain to shake within the skull.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
When a person suffers numerous concussions or head traumas, they could develop this degenerative brain condition.
Diffuse Axonal Injury
If the brain moves in the skull, the movement can tear the axons (long nerve fibers), resulting in a coma or vegetative state.
Brain contusions occur when the brain strikes the inside of the skull and bruises.
Penetrating Head Injury
A penetrating head injury breaches the skull and results in brain damage.
Symptoms of a Brain Injury
- Difficulty concentrating
- Brief loss of consciousness
- Loss of coordination
- Loss of consciousness for 1-12 hours
- Unusual behavior
- Loss of consciousness for 24 hours or more
The Danger of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can have immediately noticeable symptoms, like dizziness, confusion, and nausea. However, brain injuries are dangerous because they can also have secondary injuries that slowly arise after the initial trauma, like internal bleeding. If you've suffered a brain injury, be sure to seek medical help right away. Then, contact an attorney.

The 5 Leading Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury
Young children and adults aged 65 and older are most prone to falls, but uneven sidewalks, wet floors, and workplace ladders and scaffolding can result in a brain injury from a fall for people of any age. Our brain injury lawyers can file a claim against employers, property owners, and other parties whose negligence resulted in your TBI.
Playing sports is risky as is, especially when the proper equipment isn't used and safety protocols aren't followed. Sports like football, wrestling, and skateboarding can result in injuries sustained from being struck by or against an object.
Car accidents, pedestrian accidents, bike accidents, and other vehicular accidents are common causes of traumatic brain injuries. If your accident was caused due to a reckless or drunk driver, we could pursue a case against them and their insurance provider.
Domestic violence, shaken baby syndrome, and gunshot wounds to the head can result in abuse-related TBI. Our lawyers serving Seattle can help file a civil suit against the perpetrator so you can receive compensation for your physical and emotional damages.
From workers injured by blasts in construction zones to members of the military experiencing injuries from roadside bombs, explosions can cause head injuries in certain kinds of professions. Our traumatic brain injury lawyers can explore avenues for you to receive the compensation you deserve.
Filing for Wrongful Death
If your loved one passed away due to brain damage sustained from an injury, their personal representative has three years to file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Though nothing we do will bring your loved one back, seeking compensation from the negligent party responsible for their passing can help you move forward. You can ease the financial burden on your family and help prevent the situation that led to their death from happening again.
High Praise for Our Personal Injury Lawyers
"Liz Quick is a brilliant trial attorney. I was the plaintiff in my case and I remember sitting in that courtroom thinking “She is incredible!” She operated with such ease and such confidence in what she was doing that I just couldn’t be anything less than in total awe of her. She also was amazingly pleasant to just be around. When you are feeling as vulnerable as I felt during during the trial, having someone on your side like Liz meant so much." Deanna Z.
