Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can happen dozens of different ways, ranging from motor vehicle accidents to near drownings and electrical shocks. A TBI may result from a closed head injury or an open head injury. Regardless of whether the brain injury is the result of a car accident, SUV rollover accident, pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident, construction accident or any other accident, if someone else’s negligent, reckless or careless actions caused the accident, they are responsible and financially liable for your injuries and pain and suffering. Brain injury lawyers are necessary because of the alarming rate of victims. Around 90,000 are already permanently disabled because of brain injury, and more than 50,000 people have already died. Families and insurance companies are already spending more than $50 billion for the treatment of traumatic brain injury.
Types of Alabama Traumatic Brain Injuries
Statistically, men are more likely than women to suffer a brain injury. Types of brain injuries include concussions, contusions, coup-contrecoup injuries, skull fractures, diffuse axonal injuries, penetration injuries, and acquired brain injuries. Every brain injury is different and unique and may affect one person differently than another.
