Helping Victims of TBI in Jonesboro, Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Rogers & Beyond
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by an external bump or blow to the head. Traumatic brain injuries are often sustained in accidents, such as a car or truck accident, or through a birth defect caused by a negligent doctor.
There are approximately 200,000 cases of TBI injuries reported each year. Some injuries are more moderate, resulting in damage to brain cells, while others are more severe, causing permanent brain damage.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Symptoms are often delayed making a traumatic brain injury or even a mild concussion more difficult to diagnose. You may not experience symptoms of a TBI for a period of time. A concussion, which is caused by a head injury should be watched, as these symptoms can also take time to come on.
Common symptoms of a brain injury include:
- Physical – Confusion, dizziness, lethargy, loss of balance, nausea, and blurred vision
- Emotional – Irritability, depression, anger, appetite changes, and sleep issue
- Cognitive- Amnesia, short-term memory loss, and loss of concentration
Common causes of TBI include slip, trip and fall accidents, sports injuries, violence caused by an attack, and motor vehicle accidents, including car, motorcycle, tractor-trailer, bus, train, pedestrian, bicycle, and serious commercial vehicle accidents.
Hypoxic & Traumatic Brain Injuries
Compensable Personal Injury claims involve injuries resulting from the negligent actions of another. Actions can be unintentional or deliberate but must cause the victim some type of injury that inflicts physical or mental suffering requiring short- or long-term medical attention.
What are hypoxic brain injuries? Cerebral hypoxia means the brain has been deprived of oxygen for a certain period of time. Unless the brain has access to oxygen at all times, neurons (brain cells) and other areas of the brain suffer severe damage. Consequences of a hypoxic brain injury include mild cognitive and/or physical impairment to partial or total debilitation of both the brain and body.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
TBIs are typically caused by powerful blows to the head, forcing the brain to forcefully hit the sides of the skull. Explosions or penetration of the skull by objects can irreparably damage neurons and blood vessels needed to provide the brain with oxygen and nutrients. Bleeding around or within the brain, blood clots, and swelling of certain areas of the brain may restrict the oxygen supply to the brain.
Hypoxic or traumatic brain injuries may result in the patients suffering long-term deficiencies in memory, attention, and cognitive communication skills. Any resident of Jonesboro, Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Rogers, or the surrounding areas suffering a brain injury due to the negligence of another should call Caddell Reynolds Law Firm.
