Most Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from nearly any type of accident. Nearly 80 percent of head injuries occur to males. The largest group at risk for head injuries are males between the ages of 5 and 9, and again between the ages of 15 and 45. The most common causes of TBI in descending order are:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Workplace accidents

TBI can also be a result of medical malpractice, acts of violence, or slip and fall accidents. However, the cause of TBI is not nearly as important as the consequences.
TBI may result in emergency and repeat surgeries, rehabilitation services, and a life-long dependence on medications. It can interfere with your ability to work and socialize, resulting in both personal and financial damages. When you sustain TBI in an accident, you need an aggressive attorney who will fight to ensure you are fully compensated for every portion of your life affected by this disorder.
