Causes of Brain Injuries

TBIs can result from nearly any type of accident — but some causes are more common than others. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the three leading causes of TBIs include:

  1. Falls
    Accidental falls resulting in head trauma are the leading cause of TBIs in the United States—especially among those age 75 and older.
  2. Motor Vehicle Crashes
    Traffic accidents subject victims to powerful forces that can lead to concussions and other brain injuries—even when seatbelts and other safety devices are used.
  3. Colliding with Moving or Stationary Objects
    TBIs often occur during sporting and other events where you may be struck by balls or other participants.

Our brain injury attorneys can investigate the causes of your brain injury, and we’ll work hard to hold the parties responsible for your injuries accountable for their negligence.

Symptoms of Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries

Any blow to the head, whether from slipping on a wet floor or hitting your head in a vehicle collision, is capable of causing brain injury. Even a “mild” brain injury is considered a dangerous injury and may require extensive medical treatment. If you experience any of the following symptoms after a head injury resulting from an accident that wasn’t your fault, please speak to a doctor and an experienced brain injury lawyer:

  • Disorientation or loss of consciousness for several seconds to several minutes
  • Headache
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Fatigue and/or drowsiness
  • Dizziness and/or loss of balance
  • Difficulty sleeping or sleeping more than usual
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Blurred vision, ringing in ears, and/or changes in taste or smell
  • Problems with memory and/or concentration
  • Depression and/or anxiety

Symptoms of Moderate to Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries

If you experience any of the symptoms of a TBI, seek medical attention immediately. Many of the symptoms of a severe brain injury mimic the symptoms of a mild brain injury, but they grow worse over time and can cause dangerous complications, even death. These symptoms include:

  • Extreme disorientation or loss of consciousness for several minutes to several hours
  • Persistent headache and/or a headache of increasing strength
  • Persistent nausea and/or vomiting
  • Loss of balance and/or coordination
  • Difficulty waking up from sleep or coma
  • Dilation of the pupils and/or slurred speech
  • Anxiety, aggression, and/or other unusual behavior
  • Seizures

Symptoms of TBIs in Children

Small children are some of the most at risk of traumatic brain injury after an accident or fall. If your child receives a blow to the head, please get them medical attention immediately and watch closely for the following symptoms:

  • Changes in eating habits
  • Changes in sleeping habits
  • Changes in playing habits
  • Increased irritability
  • Increased crying
  • Drowsiness
  • Seizures

What Compensation is Available for a Brain Injury Lawsuit?

The brain is the single most important organ in the body. Damage to the brain causes not just physical damage but also mental and emotional damage. TBIs have been known to cause severe depression, decreased cognition­ and memory issues–which can affect the victim’s ability to work–and impaired emotional control­, which can affect the victim’s relationships with loved ones.

After a brain injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you and your loved ones may be eligible for significant compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Ongoing medical treatment and/or future care
  • Lost wages and lost future income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
