How We Prove Negligence in a Traumatic Brain Injury Case

- Eyewitness accounts
- Videos or photos of the accident and your injuries
- Police, accident, or incident reports
- Overview of the extent of your injuries and expected prognosis
- Any other evidence that is relevant to your case

- A drunk driver who causes a car accident.

- An employer who does not supply proper safety gear.

How Most Traumatic Brain Injuries Occur
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a traumatic brain injury is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the brain’s normal functions. Any blow or trauma to the head is a reason to see a medical provider right away. Even a mild brain injury has the potential to quickly become serious.
Common causes of a traumatic brain injury are:
- Falling objects
- Motor vehicle accidents including auto, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian
- Gun violence
