Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when individuals suffer a blow or a penetrating injury to the head caused by banging their head in a car crash or a slip-and-fall accident, for example. While concussion is a common, mild form of TBI, other forms of TBI can be debilitating and even fatal.
If someone has caused you or loved one to suffer TBI through no fault of your own, you have a right to seek compensation for your medical costs, income you’ve lost and pain and suffering you have endured.

What is Traumatic Brain Injury?
If you or a loved is suffering from traumatic brain injury, you are far from alone. The Brain Injury Association of North Carolina reports that brain injuries affect five times more people annually than breast cancer, HIV/AIDS, spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis (MS) combined.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, leading causes of TBI include:
- Motor vehicle crashes (car, truck and motorcycle accidents)
- Being struck by or against objects
The Mayo Clinic says the signs and symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury may include:
- Blacking out
- Being dazed, confused or disoriented
- Memory or concentration problems
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Nausea or vomiting
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Depression or anxiety
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Difficulty sleeping or sleeping more than usual.
If you have experienced any of these symptoms after being in a slip-and-fall accident or a car, truck or motorcycle accident, it’s important to get medical attention right away. If the accident was caused through no fault of your own, it’s important to seek legal assistance as well.
