Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries in Federal Way, WA

A TBI happens when a sudden jolt to the body or head causes the brain to hit the skull. As you might imagine, there are a great many situations where you could experience a strong jolt or blow like this.

Here are a few of the more common scenarios we’ve seen:

This list illustrates just a few examples. Again, a TBI can occur whenever you’ve suffered a strong blow to the body or head.

When to Suspect you Might Have a Traumatic Brain Injury

Anytime you’ve taken a hard hit, it’s important to watch for signs of a TBI. Sometimes, symptoms will show up immediately. However, it’s possible for signs to appear for days or even weeks afterwards (source: Mayo Clinic)!

In addition, you should be aware that symptoms can include physical, sensory, behavioral, and mental. In other words, there’s a whole gamut of effects your body can feel after a brain injury. Some of these include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Sensory changes
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Light or sound sensitivity
  • Mood changes

A brain injury needs medical attention and care. Please, do not delay in getting evaluated if you think there’s a chance you could be suffering from a TBI.

When Legal Action is Warranted

To be clear, not every circumstance leading to a brain injury warrants legal action. To have a valid personal injury case, you need to be able to prove that:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care. In other words, someone should have protected you, kept you safe, or acted in a safe way around you. For example, other drivers are obligated to abide by speed limits and obey traffic rules.
  • That person/party breached their duty of care. A breach happens when a person is negligent or reckless to the point others in their care are no longer safe. An example of this would be a shop owner neglecting to repair badly damaged flooring and failing to alert customers of the danger.
  • You were injured because of the breach. We need to demonstrate that your injuries were a direct result of the other person’s breach in their duty of care.
  • Your injuries resulted in damages. Some injuries don’t need medical care or time from work to recover from. If this is your situation, you likely won’t have a case. If, on the other hand, you have costly medical bills and missed wages, you could have a case.
