The topic of brain injuries usually conjures certain images. Perhaps you envision a soldier suffering a traumatic brain injury due to an explosion. Maybe you think of a person surviving a car accident yet severely concussed after his or her head made contact with the steering wheel.
The truth is that traumatic brain injuries and concussions are only two of the most widely known forms of brain injuries. The lesser-known brain injury, hypoxia, occurs when the brain is deprived of oxygen for certain periods of time. For example, brain injuries resulting from hypoxia often occur in swimming accidents and near-drowning situations.
Still, other forms of brain injuries and related neurological disorders can occur by ingesting tainted foods or using products containing mercury. As previously mentioned in another blog post on our website, our law firm is currently investigating lawsuits against a manufacturer of a popular denture adhesive. These lawsuits allege that the manufacturer’s product has caused many victims to suffer debilitating neurological disorders. Specifically, a buildup of copper and zinc within the bodies of victims that are reported to have resulted in various injuries.
Our law firm recognizes that TBIs, injuries caused by insufficient oxygen to the brain and other brain traumas can result in victims suffering permanent disabilities. Many times, these injuries are so debilitating that they often require extensive long-term care treatments.
