Brain injuries fall into two categories. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by an external pressure that causes damage to the brain or skull. Examples of a traumatic brain injury could be caused by a car accident, getting hit in the head, falling from a height, a physical fight, or a football injury.

The other form of brain injury is called an acquired brain injury and is caused by ongoing pressure, such as pressure caused by a growing tumor. Brain injuries are particularly dangerous because of the damage that they can cause to the brain, which can in turn change our ability to function, speak, behave as we normally do, and even our personalities.

Outside of brain injuries, there are other ways that a person can have brain damage, such as when they are deprived of oxygen, poisoned, or exposed to drugs.

An Atlanta brain injury attorney may be able to provide more information about your legal rights after an injury, regardless of the cause.
