The leading causes of TBI include falls (35 percent of all injuries), car accidents, truck accidents or motorcycle accidents (17 percent), struck by or against accidents (16 percent) and assaults (10 percent). Motor vehicle crashes and traffic accidents cause the largest percentage of TBI-related deaths. Falls cause half of the TBIs among children 14 years old or younger -- and six of every 10 TBIs among senior citizens aged 65 years old and older.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.7 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Of those 1.7 million TBI victims, 52,000 suffer fatal injuries, 275,000 are hospitalized, and 1.36 million are treated and released from an emergency department.

More About Traumatic Brain Injuries
A brain injury occurs when sudden trauma to the head disrupts the function of the brain. Many TBI victims do not realize that they have suffered a brain injury that requires medical care. Brain injuries can take a delayed path, with symptoms worsening over time.
TBI symptoms include headache, difficulty thinking, attention deficits, mood swings, and problems with memory. In its most severe form, a brain injury can cause a person to lose consciousness for more than 30 minutes and experience memory loss for longer than 24 hours.
Our Brain Injury Lawyers Can Help
Brain injuries are very unique and do not heal like other bodily injuries. The brain is a highly complex organ such that two similar brain injuries may manifest themselves very differently. The consequences of a brain injury can be enormous and can require significant financial compensation in order to adequately provide for a lifetime of medical care. TBI survivors often need long-term care and lifelong help to carry out their daily activities.
If your TBI injury stemmed from a car accident caused by another motorist's negligent driving, or was the result of a fall because of a property owner's carelessness, you may be entitled to money damages.
As a personal injury firm, we have helped brain injury victims obtain financial compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, disability, and more.
