Brain Injury Lawsuits

Brain Injury Lawsuits

Recent data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that approximately 1.7 million Americans suffer some form of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) every year. Many different types of accidents can cause a traumatic brain injury and may warrant a brain injury lawsuit. Some of the most common include:

Auto Accidents

Auto accidents and/or car wrecks are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal brain injuries in the United States. Rollovers, passenger ejections, and accidents where a vehicle occupant’s head strikes the windshield, interior of the vehicle, an object, or another passenger can cause obvious head injuries. In addition, whiplash can cause serious brain injuries, which oftentimes go undetected.

Preventable Falls

Falls are a common cause of brain injury, and statistically occur most often in the elderly and very young children. Alcohol and medications are often a contributing factor. Unsafe playgrounds and hazards in nursing homes are examples of preventable causes of falls.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice and medical negligence is a common cause of TBIs and resultant brain injury lawsuits. Accidents which occur during the birthing process, where a baby’s brain is deprived of oxygen, can lead to long-term disabilities. Misdiagnosis and a failure to diagnose certain medical conditions—such as a stroke—can also result in brain injuries, as can certain surgical procedures. Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) are also a cause of brain injuries.

Sports-Related Head Injury

Both contact and non-contact sports can result in injuries to the brain. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that there are over 300,000 sports-related traumatic brain injuries each year. About 20% of high school athletes sustain a brain injury each season. Over 60% of those are football-related. 50,000 children sustain bicycle-related brain injuries each year in the United States. Over 400 of those children die as a result.

Workplace Accidents

Each year, thousands of individuals are injured at work. Many suffer some form of brain or spinal cord injury. Slips, falls, and impact injuries are all too common, especially in manufacturing, construction and factory working environments. But brain injuries can also be sustained in an office-based environment, which may call for a Workers’ Compensation lawyer’s involvement in the brain injury lawsuit.
