Acquired Brain Injury
Acquired brain injury can refer to any injury to the brain that is not hereditary, congenital, degenerative, or induced by trauma at birth. These brain injuries are often not considered as severe as traumatic brain injury, though their impacts can be just as damaging.
If you or someone you love has sustained a brain injury, please contact The Hornbuckle Firm online or call our Bellevue, Washington office at (425) 679-0742 today. Our brain injury attorneys serve Seattle, Tacoma, and surrounding Washington communities.
Types of Acquired Brain Injury
Acquired brain injury may result from medical conditions such as stroke or tumor. These brain injuries may also result from accidents such as near drowning, electrocution, and exposure to neurotoxins. In instances where acquired brain injury is caused by accidents, it is typically secondary to other, perhaps equally catastrophic injuries.
Two of the most common types of acquired brain injury are:
- Anoxic – when oxygen and blood flow to the brain in cut off entirely
- Hypoxic – when oxygen and blood flow to the brain are severely limited
As with all types of brain injury, these can result in irreversible damage and require years of expensive and difficult rehabilitation to recover from.
You Deserve Swift and Effective Legal Representation
Treating brain injury may necessitate immediate and long-term medical intervention and wind up costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The brain injury lawyers at The Hornbuckle Firm are prepared to take your case and fight for your rights, helping ensure swift and complete compensation.
