A cerebral contusion is a type of traumatic brain injury which may cause small blood vessels in the brain to break. It is, in effect, a bruise within the brain tissue which occurs in up to 30% of all major head injuries. The side effects of a cerebral contusion can be devastating, causing a decline in mental function and potentially affecting a victim for the rest of his or her life.

Although cerebral contusions often heal on their own without medical treatment, this does not mean they are not serious injuries. If you or someone you love has suffered a contusion due to the negligence of another party, you are entitled to damages.

Causes and Symptoms

Most cerebral contusions occur when the head is struck, causing the brain to collide with the bony surface of the skull. Contusions may be classified as a “coup injury,” when the brain is injured directly from the side of impact, or a “contre-coup injury,” when the brain is injured on the opposite side of the impact. The symptoms of a cerebral contusion typically depend on the area of the brain that is affected, but some of the common symptoms include:

  • Loss of motor skills
  • Numbness in the extremities
  • Inability to speak clearly or articulately
  • Memory loss
  • Cognitive difficulties
