Traumatic brain injury results after man throws bottle at woman

When a Maryland resident hears the words "traumatic brain injury," he or she, like most people, might think that this injury is often only associated with NFL players or victims of serious accidents. However, a traumatic brain injury can occur almost anywhere. A recent out-of-state incident of a TBI appears to have involved a man, his temper and a whiskey bottle.

The man caused a woman he was in an argument with to suffer a traumatic brain injury, according to the criminal complaint. The injury allegedly occurred after the 32-year-old man threw an almost-full glass bottle of whiskey at the woman's head. He was charged with three separate counts of assault.

According to the criminal complaint, the man and woman were at a residence at the time of the incident. The man became upset then threw a nearly full 1-liter bottle of whiskey at her, which struck the woman in the head, according to the police. The victim contacted the police two days later, at which point the authorities decided to have her taken her to a local medical center. It was then that she learned that her skull had been fractured, and she had suffered a traumatic brain injury. 

Long after a traumatic brain injury heals, the symptoms caused by the original incident may continue to plague the victim, sometimes for the remainder of his or her life. If an individual in Maryland thinks that he or she has suffered a traumatic brain injury, it is advised that he or she seek immediate medical attention. If the injury was due to the negligence of another, an individual can consult a personal injury attorney who is experienced with handling traumatic brain injury cases. This ensures that the victim receives the full and fair compensation for his or her injury, if it is proved that the individual's injury was the result of the negligence of another individual.
