A major cause of TBIs in the United States is motor vehicle accidents and falls. Other leading causes include assault, sports-related activities, and child abuse/neglect.

  • Sports Injuries
  • Violence Or Assault


  • Traumatic brain injuries come in a variety of forms.
  • According to the CDC, a traumatic brain injury is a “change in brain function caused by an external force.”
  • This can be anything from a bump or blow to the head to a gunshot wound or car accident.

Closed brain injuries are the most common type of traumatic brain injury. They occur when an external force damages the skull but does not penetrate it.
This causes damage due to the impact of the external object on the skull. The symptoms depend on which area of the brain is affected but can include headaches, nausea, vomiting, and loss of memory.

In contrast, a penetrating brain injury occurs when a foreign object enters the skull and causes damage to the brain itself.
If left untreated, this type of traumatic brain injury can lead to infections such as meningitis which can be fatal if not treated right away.
Statistically speaking, this type of injury is relatively rare compared to closed brain injuries. However, it is important to note that penetrating brain injuries are more severe than closed ones because they can damage vital parts of the brain such as the frontal lobe.


  • Diffuse axonal injury refers to when the areas of the brain that are responsible for cognitive functions are damaged.
  • This causes problems with communication within the brain, which in turn causes impaired concentration and difficulty processing information.
  • Symptoms can include memory loss, dizziness, confusion, slurred speech, and eye-rolling. It can lead to comas.


  • A primary brain injury occurs suddenly and all at once.
  • It happens at the time of impact and can have an immediate effect on brain function.
  • When a person sustains a primary brain injury, it is most likely they will lose consciousness for a period. However, many primary injuries do not result in any loss of consciousness at all since the effects are instantaneous.
  • This includes car accidents, blows to the head, and falls.


  • Unlike primary injuries, secondary ones happen over time.
  • Over the course of several minutes, hours, or even days after the initial brain injury has occurred. It is possible for a secondary injury to occur in the same incident that gave rise to the primary one. Secondary injuries can include swelling of the brain tissue due to bleeding or bruising. This can cause compression on other regions of the brain and lead to a loss of function. Both children and adults can sustain a traumatic brain injury due to an accident or another person’s actions.

Helpie FAQ

  • When to call a lawyer a motor vehicle accident?

    Right after an accident, the insurance company is investigating the claim and taking steps to assure that you recover as little compensation as possible for your injuries. It is critically important to contact a qualified auto accident attorney as soon as possible to protect yourself from the insurance company and make sure the proper steps are taken to investigate the accident and secure the evidence necessary to prove responsibility for the crash.

  • How do I pay for a personal injury attorney?

    Auto Accident cases are accepted on a contingency fee basis. This means that you are not charged any out of pocket expenses in connection with hiring a lawyer. After the lawyer resolves your case either by settlement or jury verdict, then the applicable attorney fee is paid from the proceeds of the settlement.

  • Should I provide a recorded statement to the insurance company?

    You are not required to provide a statement to the at fault driver’s insurance company. If one is requested, you should decline and defer to your attorney. You may be required to provide a statement to your own insurance company as most policies of auto insurance obligate you to provide “reasonable cooperation” which can include a statement. Do not provide a statement to any insurance company without first speaking to your attorney.

  • How do I get my property damage repaired after a motor vehicle accident?

    The at fault driver’s at fault driver’s insurance company is responsible for the repairs to your vehicle. If there is a dispute regarding who is responsible for causing the crash, you can arrange to have the repairs handled through your own insurance company, provided you have collision coverage on your policy.

  • How do I get a rental vehicle after a motor vehicle accident?

    The at fault driver’s insurance company is responsible for getting you into a rental vehicle. If there is a dispute regarding who is responsible for causing the crash, you can arrange for a rental through your own insurance company, provided you have rental coverage on your policy.

  • What is Florida PIP?

    Florida law requires auto insurance policies to include Personal Injury Protection (PIP). Following a motor vehicle crash, your own insurance would cover 80% of your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages up to $10,000.00. This is the case regardless of who was at fault for the accident. You only have fourteen days to receive medical treatment following a crash in order to qualify for PIP. This means that even if your symptoms are mild, but you suspect you may be injured as a result of a crash, you should get medical treatment as soon as possible.

  • Who pays for my medical expenses after a motor vehicle accident?

    Initially, your medical expenses are covered in part by your own insurance policy under the PIP (“Personal Injury Protection”) coverage. Uncovered medical expenses are recovered by your attorney from the responsible party’s insurance company as part of your personal injury case. Typically, you should not incur any out of pocket medical expenses in connection with accident related treatment.

  • What kind of compensation can I recover from a motor vehicle accident?

    There is a wide variety of damages that can be recovered from a motor vehicle accident. The at fault driver’s insurance company is responsible for your past a future medical expenses. If you were unable to work due to your injuries, you can recover your lost wages. If your capacity to work in the future is diminished, you can recover compensation. Subject to proof that your injuries caused from a motor vehicle crash are permanent, you can recover compensation for pain and suffering both in the past and in the future. This is a very generalized overview of the types of compensation you can recover. Your attorney will counsel you in greater detail.
