Traumatic Brain Injury Claims | Causes
There are a lot of different causes of brain injuries. You may have gotten into a terrible car accident, hurt yourself in a bad construction accident, or you could have been involved in a sport accident. Unfortunately, we see enough of these accidents to know that they happen relatively often. Even worse is that the traumatic nature of a brain injury can completely change your life forever. The worst symptoms include loss of memory, impaired speech, temporary or permanent disability, and a loss of motor functions. Hundreds of thousands of people are taken to the hospital every year for traumatic brain injury and thousands of them succumb to their injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injury Claims | Statistics
In 2014, there were approximately 1,200 people who were killed in Arizona due to some type of brain injury. The most common causes of these accidents come with misuse of firearms as well as slip and falls. Victims who have survived their brain injuries were numbered in the 6,000s in Arizona. Unfortunately, there were over 54,000 people who had to be hospitalized for a head related injury.
It is surprising how the simplest mistakes can cause a serious traumatic brain injury. You might have been working on a construction site and the ladder was not properly secured which resulted in your injury. You may have simply walked outside and tripped over a hazard which caused a brain injury.
