4 Common Causes of Brain Injuries

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on July 31, 2013

4 Common Causes of Brain InjuriesTraumatic brain injuries can cause serious harm that changes your life forever, and you could be at risk. Many times the causes of traumatic brain injuries are out of your control and are caused by someone else. Here are four of the common causes of traumatic brain injuries according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Falls: Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries and has lead to 35.2 percent of traumatic brain injuries in America, and is the most common cause of traumatic brain injury in children and older adults. Tragic falls can occur when falling out of bed or off ladders, slipping in the bathtub and more.
  • Motor vehicle accidents: Roadway accidents cause the highest amount of traumatic brain injury related deaths: 31.8 percent. Any kind of collision on the road can lead to TBIs, such as a car accident, bicycle accident, pedestrian accident or truck accident.
  • Struck by: The second leading cause of traumatic brain injuries among children is when they are struck by a moving or stationary object. This kind of injury is easy to occur when children are playing sports.
  • Violence: Tragically around 10 percent of traumatic brain injuries are caused by violence like gunshot wounds, domestic violence or child abuse.

Traumatic brain injuries usually could have been prevented and occurred due to the negligence of someone else. If you or a loved one were the victim of a TBI, you deserve justice and compensation for your physical and emotional trauma.
