For someone to be categorized as having a mild traumatic brain injury they will have to have had a loss of consciousness or disorientation of 30 minutes or under. Difficulty processing information, headache, trouble remembering, mood swings, attention deficits and general confusion are all symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury. Concussions are the most commonly known form for this type of injury.

Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries
This type of traumatic brain injury is considered more severe. For someone to be diagnosed with a moderate traumatic brain injury they will have to have suffered a loss of consciousness of between 30 minutes to 24 hours. The symptoms have the ability to last for months at a time. These side-effects are very similar to that of a mild traumatic brain injury the difference is that they are often more aggressive and longer lasting. There is even a risk of permanency with this classification of brain injury. If you or a loved one have been injured in accident that was not your fault and received this type of brain injury it’s time that you hire the most experienced personal injury attorney in Portland Oregon immediately.
Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries
Severe traumatic brain injuries are the most aggressive and extreme of all brain injuries. These injuries are frequently permanent and can even lead to death. Locked in syndrome, minimally responsive state, akinetic mutism, vegetative state, persistent vegetative state and coma are all examples of severe traumatic brain injuries. While it is possible for someone to recover from a vegetative state or coma many of these severe brain injuries are irreversible and permanent. It can be difficult to tell when a person will recover or not from a severe traumatic brain injury because the brain is still such an unknown.
