Head injuries can be one of the most severe and devastating types of personal injuries after an Oregon trucking accident. This is particularly true of traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, which commonly result in significant disabilities, long-term complications, and often permanent damage and disability to a victim. There are many different types of TBIs which could be caused by a motor vehicle accident, but because of the large size and heavy weight of big rigs and 18 wheelers, trucking accidents commonly result in the worst types of TBIs with the most severe disabilities. Our Oregon TBIs from trucking accidents lawyers explain some of these catastrophic traumatic brain injuries and how we can help protect your rights.
What is a TBI?
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is an acute or trauma-related injury to the brain. Generally, there are two types of TBIs. The first type of TBI is from physical trauma such as penetrating injuries to the head and brain, debris injuries, physical damage or tearing to the brain, lacerations, or other physical damage. The second type of TBI is a closed-head injury, which is when the brain has sustained an acute injury but the skull has not been penetrated. This commonly occurs in high-impact collisions where the brain may bounce back-and-forth or be violently shaken inside of the head.
