  • Back injuries are typically based on the level of the disc & or size of the herniation. Disc herniation that presses on a nerve will likely also be causing back pain, numbness, radiating pain, or weakness in other body regions.  The back pain may feel like burning or shooting into your buttock or leg(s).  The most common low-back lumbar herniation is at L4 – L5.

Brain Damage Law Firm

  • Diffuse Brain Swelling.  Brain swelling and bruising may occur following a force to the skull. The brain will “bounce” off the inside of the skull. This can cause nerve shearing as well as the swelling and bruising of nerve tissue. The swelling of the brain can create pressure inside of the head, which may, in turn, lead to compression of vital blood vessels.
  • Brain Injury According to Mayo Clinic, a Concussion is usually from a fall or auto accident; each type occurs and affects the brain differently. According to Mayo Clinic, common causes of concussion are blasts, acceleration & deceleration, and a direct blow to the head. 
  • Acceleration & Deceleration a/k/a “Whiplash” The sudden stop and go in a car crash can cause a brain injury from the brain colliding with the hard skull surrounding it.
  • Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) occurs when sudden back and forth movement of the brain from the force of impact during a crash can tear or shear diffuse axonal nerve fibers. 
  • Blow to head  During a crash your head can hit the windshield, side window, steering wheel, and the top of a car. This direct blow to the head can cause a concussion.  A concussion can happen from violent shaking of the brain or violent blows to the head, neck, or upper body causes the brain to move back and forth violently against the inside walls of your skull. 
  • Brain Contusion / Hematoma A bruise or contusion can also be called a hematoma that can happen from different types of brain injury.
  • Brain Bleed: The seriousness of this type of brain injury depends on the amount of bleeding.   

Three types of brain bleed: 

  1. Subdural hematoma is a collection of blood in the space below the outer layer (dura mater) and above the middle layer of the membrane surrounding the brain (the arachnoid mater). The violent movement to the head tears veins passing between these layers,
  2. Subarachnoihematoma or bleed is n the middle (arachnoid mater) and above the lower layer of membrane surrounding the brain.  A skull fracture can cause this type of hematoma, and
  3. Extradural hematoma (EDH), also called an epidural hematoma is a collection of blood from the arteries between the inner surface of the skull and the dura.
