Head injury vs brain injury
Many people use the term brain injury and head injury interchangeable. Injured people should be aware that injuries to the head includes brain injuries, but not all head injuries result in brain injury. For example, you may have a fractured skull without a brain injury. In general term, a brain injury is more severe and often results in higher compensation payout amounts due to a higher impairment rating in workers compensation claims and a higher general damages amount in common law claims.
If your traumatic brain injury is caused by accidents or injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. The most common brain injury compensation claims are caused by:
- brain injury from fall
- brain injury after car accident
In addition to common accidents and injuries, TBI may also be caused by illnesses, toxins, or other factors which are results of negligence related personal injury, which may be compensable.
If you have trauma insurance and TPD insurance, you may entitled to benefits under your insurance policy.
