Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury happens when a bump, blow, or jolt to the head disrupts a person’s normal brain function. Falls are the leading cause of TBI, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accounting for about half of brain injury-related ER visits. Striking an object is the second leading cause.

Incidents such as (but not limited to) the following can commonly lead to brain injuries:

Our firm represented a man who was injured on the side of the road on Interstate 95. A diesel fuel tank had fallen from a truck and spilled onto the highway, so our client pulled his vehicle over on the shoulder. The driver of a vehicle lost control after hitting the fuel slick and struck him. Our client suffered a TBI, which led to amnesia, multiple surgeries, and permanent disability. The traumatic brain injury lawyers at Gay Chacker & Ginsburg obtained $16.5 million from the insurance companies of the two companies whose negligence had led to the fuel tank spill.

In another case, our client was on an outside service balcony of a building and attempted to reenter the building through the balcony access door, when the door blew shut and struck our client. He fell and struck his head on a support beam. He suffered a concussion, back injuries, and emotional trauma. Our firm obtained a $3.8 million settlement during trial in this premises liability case.

Oftentimes, a serious assault leads to traumatic brain injury. One of our clients was at an entertainment establishment when a uniformed security guard attacked him and caused him to fall unconscious to the ground. When he awoke, the guard repeatedly punched him, despite the fact that our client had done nothing wrong and was unable to walk. We were able to obtain $270,000 for the victim, who had suffered facial fractures, a concussion, short-term memory loss, and other problems as a result of the attack.
