What Types of Accidents Can Result in Traumatic Brain Injuries?

by Staff Blogger | July 25th, 2019

The human brain is the most complex organ in existence. But it’s also one of the most vulnerable. Although it’s protected by the skull, the brain can be easily damaged during accidents.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke brain injury lawyers know how devastating traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are for victims and their families. People who suffer TBIs often experience life-changing disabilities and problems with cognition, behavior, and fine motor skills. They may be unable to work for the rest of their lives, and they may also need medical care from highly trained nurses and specialists.

TBIs can be caused by a variety of accidents, including:

  • Auto accidents—Car crash victims may experience TBIs due to impacts with hard surfaces or even due to their brains moving inside their skulls, resulting in bleeding and tissue damage.
  • Motorcycle accidents—TBIs are common with motorcycle accidents. That’s because even helmeted motorcyclists are at risk of suffering severe head injuries when they’re thrown from their bikes during crashes.
  • Medical malpractice—TBIs can occur as a result of medical mistakes, including errors during surgery, administering the wrong dosages of medications, or oxygen deprivation.

If you or someone you love suffered a TBI, it’s important to have a law firm on your side that knows what you’re going through and knows how to build a claim that will maximize your chances of getting compensation.
