Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Causes
There are few injuries as devastating as a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. Traumatic brain injuries not only destroy the lives of victims, but place overwhelming and unexpected financial and emotional burdens on the shoulders of family members, friends, and others. Whatever the cause of the traumatic brain injury, there can be no doubting that every life it effects will be changed profoundly from then on.
As tragic as traumatic brain injuries are, they are even more so when they are caused by someone else’s negligent actions. The knowledge that a catastrophic injury could have been avoided if not for this negligence can weigh heavily on a family, creating incredible stress, turmoil, and confusion. Choosing the right lawyer to handle the ensuing personal injury claim during such a chaotic time can add to this stress.

What Are The Most Common Causes Of Traumatic Brain Injuries?
Most traumatic brain injuries occur as a result of accidents in which either an object forcefully comes into contact with or penetrates the skull or a sudden, violent jolt forces the brain to collide with the inner wall of the skull. The most dangerous aspect of traumatic brain injuries is that they may not produce any clear symptoms at first. Victims may appear to be perfectly lucid and unharmed immediately after an accident, with symptoms not becoming apparent until days, weeks, or even months later. At that point, however, irreparable or even lethal damage may already have been done. For that reason, accident victims should always seek immediate medical help, even if they feel as though they have emerged from the accident unscathed.
Traumatic brain accidents can occur from any number of accidents, including:
- Car, truck, motorcycle, SUV, and other motor vehicle accidents
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall, falling debris, and other premises liability accidents
- Construction and other workplace accidents
- Sports accidents
- Falls from ladders, scaffolding, roofs, and other high places
- Violent attacks
- Medical malpractice, including surgical mistakes and the failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of brain injuries or disorders
- Accidents resulting from the use of defective products
