The brain is one of the largest, and most complex organs in the human body and is made up of 100 billion nerve cells.

The human brain weighs between 2 and 4 pounds

  • The average male's brain weighs 3 pounds.
  • The average female's brain weighs 2.8 pounds.
  • Albert Einstein's brain weighed 2.71 pounds.

Our brains not only control processes like thinking, and movement, but also body functions such as digestion and breathing.

It would seem that an organ this important to the normal operation of the body would be built to be durable. However, this wrinkled, gelatin-like mass is far more fragile than most people realize. Because of its fragility, the brain was designed to float in the cerebrospinal fluid inside the skull. This fluid acts as a buffer from ordinary knocks and jolts to the brain in the same way that packing peanuts protect a fragile item from damaging bumps when it is being shipped.

But in spite of this protective fluid, if you receive a severe blow to the head, the force of the impact can cause your brain to bounce violently against your skull. When this happens, it can result in nerve fibers being torn and bleeding in and around the brain. This damage to brain tissue is known as traumatic brain injury or TBI. Even though TBI is a devastating illness, traumatic brain injury recovery can be possible, to some extent, at least. Recently, many advances have been made in traumatic brain injury treatment and so families need to be aware of the latest treatments.

Types of Head Injuries

  • Concussions: This is when an individual suffers a blow to the head and experiences an instant loss of awareness or alertness. Some victims of concussions may lose consciousness for seconds, minutes or even hours. Recent studies show that those who suffer more than one concussion, especially as a result of sports injuries, may face long-term consequences such as victims of more severe traumatic brain injuries.
  • Skull fractures: A skull fracture is a break or crack in the skull bone. Individuals may suffer a linear skull fracture (a break that does not result in bone movement), depressed skull fracture (part of the skull is sunken in from the trauma), a diastatic skull fracture (breaks along the suture lines in the skull) or basilar skull fracture (break in the bone from the base of the skull).
  • Intracranial hematoma: This is when the victim suffers a blood clot in or around the brain. Depending on the type of hematoma injury, the victim may experience minor to life-threatening symptoms.
  • Diffuse axonal injury: This is when the brain is injured due to a shaking movement. Diffuse axonal injuries can occur as the result of a car crash, a fall-related accident or due to other causes such as shaken baby syndrome.
  • If you or a loved one have suffered from any of the above injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence, know your rights and contact an attorney today.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I don’t even know where to start, because I really wanted to write this recommendation even if there was no star or rating to be given! My daughter and I were in a bad car accident in 2011. She received a broke jaw, broken pelvic, broken arm, and a ruptured ear drum. I prayed to the lord while I was in ICU to guide me and send me to the right attorney that would help me and my daughter and not just look at us as a monetary opportunity. After much research I choose Bisnar Chase.
After spending 2 months in the ICU, we were in a long recovery process. Learning to walk, to eat due to wire shut for months! Back to the basic all over again… 4 years later it just came to an end! I tell you I have 2 different paralegals assisting me but Colleen Cadogan was the best I had this past year… This lady, emailed me, called me, send me words of encouragement almost every week! When I least expect it and I had a horrible day or had many questions and concerns she was there! As the paralegal doing her job, but also as a human being, a mother, a wife….just genuinely concern for my daughter and I. As the case came to a close….I will always remember the team of professionals and I would recommended Bisnar Chase to anyone….and be patient, patience”
