What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?
Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs for short, are becoming more and more common. Many people have heard of TBIs through media coverage of permanent injuries to football players, including severe concussions. However, TBIs can be suffered through other means as well.

How Common Are TBIs?
TBIs are alarmingly common. In fact, about 30 percent of all injury deaths involve a TBI, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Every day in the United States, more than 140 people die from injuries that include TBIs, and in 2013 alone, TBIs contributed to the deaths of roughly 50,000 people nationwide, the CDC further reports.
Are You or a Loved One the Victim of a TBI?
Brain injuries can affect all ages, demographics and backgrounds, from newborn babies to senior adults. Brain injury could result from sports or recreational activities. Brain injury can also result from a car accident, a fall, a trip or at the hands of an individual. Brain injury can be intentionally or accidentally caused by another person. In either case, another party can be held liable. An attorney can help you understand others’ involvement.
What Types of Brain Injuries Are Considered TBIs?
