Types of Brain Injuries and Their Consequences

While our main goal is to advocate for those who have suffered the most grievous injuries, it’s important to note that brain injuries can vary in severity, ranging from mild to moderate to severe. Here are the main types:

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): 

This injury results from an external force, such as a blow or jolt to the head, which can disrupt normal brain function. TBIs can range from concussions (mild TBIs) to severe cases involving extended periods of unconsciousness or amnesia.

Patients in medical settings can suffer a traumatic brain injury due to surgical errors or trauma during labor and delivery.

The Value of Experienced Dallas Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys

Recognizing the complex needs of TBI survivors and their families, the role of traumatic brain injury lawyers in Dallas, TX becomes indispensable. Our brain injury attorneys are keenly aware of the challenges faced by those affected. We are adept at navigating the intricate legal landscape to secure the necessary compensation and support services.

Hypoxic-Ischemic Injury: 

This occurs when the brain doesn’t receive enough oxygen (hypoxia) or blood flow (ischemia). It’s a common type of injury in birth injury cases, where delays in delivery or other complications can lead to oxygen deprivation.

Anoxic Brain Injury: 

Similar to hypoxic injuries but more severe, an anoxic brain injury occurs when the brain receives no oxygen at all, leading to cell death and potentially widespread brain damage.

Choosing Attorneys Who Understand Hypoxic and Anoxic Brain Injury

Our brain injury lawyers at Van Wey, Metzler & Williams play a crucial role in supporting survivors of hypoxic and anoxic brain injuries and their families. We have extensive knowledge of the unique challenges in these cases and work tirelessly to secure compensation and support services. With a compassionate approach and dedication to justice, we provide invaluable assistance to ensure families receive the necessary guidance and representation during difficult times.

Perinatal Brain Damage: 

Specifically related to newborns, this type of injury occurs near the time of birth. It can be due to physical injury during delivery or a lack of oxygen and includes conditions like cerebral palsy.

Intracranial Hemorrhage: 

This involves bleeding inside the skull, which can put pressure on the brain and cause damage. Types include epidural, subdural, and intracerebral hemorrhages.


In a hospital setting, a stroke can result from a clot or a bleed in the brain and may be considered preventable if due to medical negligence, such as improper medication management.

Brain Injuries Are Often Life-Altering Injuries

At Van Wey, Metzler & Williams, we primarily focus on catastrophic injury cases resulting from medical malpractice, including medical errors leading to severe brain injuries. Nevertheless, it’s important to recognize that even milder forms of brain injury can have significant, albeit different, impacts.

Unfortunately, preventable medical errors are responsible for thousands of various types of brain injuries every year in the United States. These profound injuries not only challenge an individual’s ability to lead an independent life but also place substantial emotional and financial burdens on their loved ones.

Most Common Preventable Causes of Brain Injuries in Hospitals

Medical Errors: 

Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or surgical errors can lead to conditions that cause brain injuries, such as untreated infections or complications.

Medication Errors: 

Incorrect medication or dosage can lead to adverse effects, including those that result in reduced oxygen or blood flow to the brain.

Birth Injuries: 

Mistakes during labor and delivery, such as failing to monitor fetal distress or improperly using delivery tools, can cause brain injuries to newborns.

Anesthesia Errors: 

Improper administration of anesthesia can lead to hypoxic or anoxic injuries if the brain’s oxygen supply is compromised.

Falls and Patient Handling: 

Inadequate patient supervision leading to falls, or improper handling of patients, can result in traumatic brain injuries.

Failure to Treat: 

Neglecting to provide medical treatment for conditions that can lead to brain injuries, such as strokes, infections, or heart conditions, is a significant area of concern.

Understanding the types of brain injuries and their preventable causes is the first step in assessing potential medical malpractice or birth injury cases. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious brain injury under circumstances you believe were preventable, it’s crucial to seek trusted legal advice to explore your options for compensation and justice.
