Traumatic Brain Injuries

Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff and all Arizona communities

According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, every year 1.4 million people in
the United States suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The majority of these cases require professional
medical attention. Even with prompt treatment, however, some victims will not recover from this brain
damage. About 50,000 people, annually, die from a traumatic brain injury.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Unfortunately, there are many different ways a victim may suffer a traumatic brain injury. Often, these
injuries result from negligent or malicious actions performed by another person. Common causes of TBI
include:

  • Moving vehicle accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Abuse
  • Explosive blasts (such as gunshots)

Though this does not include all of the possible causes of TBI, the above items are considered to be
among the most prevalent ones.

Consequences of Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries may range in severity from mild (minor concussions) to severe (bleeding in
the brain). If the traumatic brain injury is serious, the victim may suffer lasting effects, such as
the following:

  • Loss of sensation
  • Changes in thought processes
  • Loss of memory/memory capabilities
  • Emotional changes
  • Increased risk of Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s
  • Seizures
  • Possible nerve damage (paralysis or loss of vision)

The above complications can change a person’s life. Coping and adjusting to the loss of certain physical
or cognitive abilities can be both difficult and frustrating. Victims of serious traumatic brain injuries
typically have a long road of recovery ahead of them.
