It Takes An Experienced Attorney To Prove A Closed Head Injury Case

The brain, as the control center for the rest of the body, is the most protected organ. The three-pound mass of tissue is enclosed in a protective bone shell that is about one-quarter of an inch thick. The brain sends messages to the body and receives information from the environment at rates of over 200 miles per second.

The brain is surrounded by several protective membranes called meninges. The first membrane, the dura mater, is a tough membrane that lines the interior of the skull. Beneath the dura mater lie the thinner arachnoid mater and the fragile pia mater that covers the brain itself. The brain is bathed in a clear liquid called cerebrospinal fluid that also surrounds the spinal cord. This fluid covers the entire surface of the brain and flows between the layered meninges, providing a cushion between the delicate tissues and the bones of the skull.

Even though the brain is so carefully protected, it can still become injured. A blow to the head can jar the brain within the meninges and cause the brain to slam into the walls of the skull, resulting in a concussion or a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A concussion may take weeks or months to completely heal. More severe injuries, such as penetrating brain injuries, may be life-altering.

Brain injuries can be caused by vehicle accidents, accidents at work, slips and falls, high-impact sports and blows to the head. The recovery process can be extremely difficult, especially when the patient’s insurance company acts in bad faith and denies a valid recovery claim.
