A traumatic brain injury happens when you take a sudden blow to your head which causes a violent shaking of the head. This event will cause your brain to impact inside of your skull violently. Complication can arise from this and cause behavioral changes, communication troubles or problems with the sensory processing. In serious cases, this person can fall into a coma or death can occur.
If this had happened to you or someone you know, then you will be filing personal injury claims with a personal injury attorney. This is the professional who will evaluate your case and let you know the best form of action to take. Traumatic brain injuries can come from medical malpractice, physical assault and from auto accidents, to name just a few. Statistics show us that almost half of the traumatic brain injury cases, in the United States, come from car accidents.
Ninety percent of the time, a brain injury from a firearm will cause this injury. The number one cause for a traumatic brain injury is a slip and fall accident in those over the age of sixty-five. In young children and infants, this traumatic brain injury comes from child abuse and violent shaking.
