What are the causes of Traumatic Brain Injury?

This type of injury can result from any blow or impact to the head that affects or interferes with normal brain function.  Common examples of causes of brain injury are:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents — Accidents involving falls account for a very large percentage of Traumatic Brain Injury cases in the United States.   The victim of a fall may be entitled to file a premise liability claim.  At Weaver, Bennett & Bland, we’ve handled many different types of cases where injuries have arisen from falls.   Slipping on ice, slipping on a wet spot in a restaurant, nursing home negligence, falling from a ladder, failure to provide safety railings, etc. We’ve seen all types and varieties of cases, and we can help you get the compensation and the care you need and deserve.
  • Vehicle Accidents — Motor vehicle accidents (Cars, Trucks, Boats and Motorcycles) cause approximately 20 percent of brain injuries in the United States each year.  Each type of accident has its own special problems and challenges that our clients need help with.
  • Assaults – Approximately 10 percent of all head injuries are the result of an attack or a violent assault.  We can help you get the care you need and the compensation you deserve.   You don’t have to endure the suffering.
