Wisconsin Contusions Attorneys
On the surface of the body, a bruise is just a painful spot that may be marked by green or purple underneath the skin. However, in the tissue of the brain, a bruise can have much more serious implications. A bruise inside the brain is called a contusion, and it often results after closed head injuries.
While some contusions go away without any medical help, other brain bruising can place extreme pressure on your brain which results in tissue death. This brain tissue death could cause serious brain damage. If another party’s negligence caused your brain contusion, you should hold them liable for such reckless actions. To fight back, contact an experienced Wisconsin contusion lawyer from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 today.
What is a Contusion?
A contusion is typically the result of a closed head injury. With closed head wounds, blunt force applied to the skull or sharp motions like whiplash cause the brain to slide around in the skull. As the brain hits the sides of the skull, it can cause bleeding and bruising, known as a contusion.
The Dangers of Brain Bruising
In the rest of your body, the internally spilled blood from an injury can move and flow under your skin so that it does not cause a high-pressure spot. However, because the brain is tightly packed in the skull, the excess blood from the contusion has no place to go. This can result in pressure on the sensitive tissue of the brain. Over time, this pressure can cause the brain tissue to die. The brain damage caused by contusions can result in memory loss, seizures, and personality changes.
If your contusion and brain injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help you with your related expenses. Contact a Wisconsin contusion attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874 to discuss the facts of your case.
