Accidents That Can Cause Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a serious brain injury that has the potential for causing long-term, debilitating conditions. A TBI is caused by a strong blow to the head, a penetrating head injury, or a strong snapping back and forth motion of the neck. According to the CDC, TBIs are a major cause of disability and death in the United States contributing to about 30 percent of the injury deaths. A TBI can result in a minor concussion or severe brain damage. Repeated mild concussions have been associated with an increased risk of some diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Many TBIs are caused by personal injury accidents that are the result of the negligence or recklessness of other parties. Below are examples of accidents that can result in a TBI.
