Cause of Brain Injuries
TBI often occurs during some of the most common activities, like while driving or at work.
At Morgan & Morgan, we typically handle brain injury lawsuits caused by:
Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents: The leading cause of traumatic brain injuries for people 15 to 44 are car accidents, according to U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention. These accidents occur when drivers fail to heed the rules of the road such as when they run red lights, fail to use turn signals, or change lanes without checking to see if they’re clear.
Medical Malpractice/Birth Injury: If a healthcare professional deviates from the expectations of the medical community and causes an injury at birth or during a surgery.
Work Accidents: Accidents at work can leave victims with significant damage to the brain.
TBI’s Effects Can be Devastating
TBI can present itself with different symptoms, some more severe than others. Some of the most severe symptoms of TBI include:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Personality changes
- Psychological changes
- Loss of memory
This is just the tip of the iceberg. TBI can affect people in many other ways depending on the intensity of the blow that caused their head injury.
