If your brain injury was caused by someone’s mistake, you should reach out to a Puyallup traumatic brain injury lawyer right away.

Leading Causes of TBIs in the United States

A traumatic brain injury can happen when there is a severe jolt to the head or an object penetrates the skull. Unfortunately, there are many ways this can occur.

According to the CDC, the most common causes of TBIs include:

  • FallsBelieve it or not, falling tops the list. Adults over the age of 75 are particularly at risk for suffering a TBI after a fall.
  • Gunshot Wounds. Head injuries inflicted by firearms are the second most common cause of TBIs.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that many brain injuries are caused by car crashes.

No matter the cause, brain injuries can have an enormous economic impact on a victim’s life. In addition to medical bills, a victim may not be able to resume the same line of work.

When to Seek Compensation for a TBI

To be clear, just because you have a brain injury doesn’t mean there’s any legal action to take. For instance, if your injury was a result of your own behavior or assumed risk, you likely don’t have a case.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do you believe someone else is to blame? For example, a driver running a red light and striking your car or a property owner who failed to warn you of hazards on their premises.
  2. Was your brain injury a direct result of their negligence? In personal injury law, a victim must prove that their injury was the result of someone else’s negligence. The defense may try to present evidence that there is another explanation for your brain injury.
  3. Were there damages due to your TBI? We’re guessing the answer to this one is “yes” because a TBI often means medical bills, missed work, pain, and suffering. Damages is the term we use to describe all these negative impacts, both monetary and otherwise.

If you answered “yes” to all three of those questions, we want you (or a trusted family member) to call us as soon as possible.
